The medication propecia is available to buy online in the UK that is taken orally to increase hair growth and prevent further loss in men with male pattern baldness. As Propecia retains the existing hair and perhaps thickens it also, it is best used by men who still have enough hair to retain. Propecia has been found to be successful in many sufferers of hair loss.

Men suffering from male pattern baldness are sensitive to a male hormone called DHT that can damage hair follicles and lead to hair loss. Propecia tablets can be bought online in the UK and it contains the active ingredient knows as Finasteride.

This works by inhibiting a particular compound in the body called type II - alpha reductase. Since this compound is an enzyme that causes the conversion of testosterone into DHT, then inhibiting this compound should stop the hair loss and can lead to a reversal of the balding process which is what Propecia can do.

In about 80 percent of patients it stops further hair loss and promotes re-growth, but it may take 3 to 6 months of treatment before you notice an increase in hair density and a decrease in hair loss. It is recommended that you continually use this medicine to gain the maximum benefit possible, however new supplies are easily available. It should be noted that if you stop using this treatment then you are likely to lose any hair gained within 9 to 12 months of doing so.
