Current Hair Loss Treatments
Single-ingredient treatments are currently used to combat hair loss, and although they provide some results, they are not as effective as one would expect and desire. Minoxidil and Finasteride are the two single ingredient treatments that are most commonly used. Minoxidil is known to cause direct peripheral vasodilation, but researchers still lack a full understanding of how its mechanisms actually improve hair loss and it is only moderately effective. Finasteride inhibits the miniaturization of hair follicles and increases hair density, yet the responses can be delayed and results may not be seen for at least 6 months, if not more. There are also serious side effects that come with Finasteride like decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and ejaculation disorders.
An alternative pharmacological treatment that could provide stronger results with fewer side effects is pharmacological compounding.
Pharmacological compounding is the process of combining multiple, synergistic ingredients together to achieve stronger and more effective results at a faster pace. The best part about pharmacological compounding is that it can be tailored and customized to meet each patient’s individual needs.
HDRX Hair Loss Compound
The HDRX compound for hair loss is a combination of Minoxidil, Biotin, Caffeine, Melatonin, Spironolactone, Retinoic Acid, and Latanoprost. Minoxidil increases cutaneous blood flow to promote hair growth. Biotin is important for maintaining healthy hair and skin, and Caffeine is a stimulant that has been shown to improve hair loss by promoting cell proliferation by increasing metabolic activity. Melatonin has antioxidant properties that allow it to decrease hair loss by preventing oxidative stress. Spironolactone slows down the production of androgens that cause hair loss while Retinoic Acid promotes cell proliferation and Latanoprost stimulates hair follicle activity to promote hair growth.
These ingredients all have impacts on hair loss on their own, but when combined together they create stronger results that rise above the traditional one-dimensional treatment plans, leading to improved hair growth and general hair appearance without harmful side effects. These significant improvements along with the ability to customize the treatment to fit the patient’s needs make HDRX’s compound an effective treatment option for hair loss.
