About general effects of Propecia tablets 1 mg for male androgenetic alopecia from Japan
Japanese tablets Propecia tablets 1 mg for male androgenetic alopecia are effective for delaying the progress of male-pattern baldness in patients of all ages. Male hair loss is often caused by the miniaturization of the hair follicle due to the excess of dihydrotestosterone. Propecia tablets contain finasteride, a substance that suppresses the production of dihydrotestosterone. Studies show that 6-month treatment with finasteride does not only slow the hair loss, but also reverse it up to the 30% (S. Varothai, W. F. Bergfeld. Androgenetic alopecia: an evidence-based treatment update. American Journal of Clinical Dermatology. July 2014, 15 (3): 217–230).
