What is Finasteride (Propecia)?

Finasteride is more commonly known and seen under the brand name Propecia and is available as a prescription only form of hair loss medication. Even though Propecia is the more common name of the two, the medication itself is Finasteride and you will pay less for the exact same product if you avoid purchasing the branded version.

Finasteride has been used to aid in treating hair loss since the early 1990’s and is part of a group of medicines known as 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors.

Does Finasteride give proven results?

To test the effectiveness of Finasteride on hair loss, a highly extensive medical trial spanning 5 years was conducted in an attempt to identify the long term effects caused by continued use of the medication, as well as finding any shorter term effects and the results across both time-frames. Once the 5 year trial period was complete, the results were overwhelmingly positive.

In total, approximately 90% of the men who had been involved in the trial experienced positive results from the medication. Approximately 42% of those involved experienced renewed hair growth where they had previously been balding and approximately another 48% noticed that their hair loss had stopped and that they were losing no more hair.

Not only did the 5 year trial of Finasteride give the conclusion that it is an incredibly successful solution for hair loss in men, but also that it aided in improving the overall condition of the hair with many of the candidates stating that their hair was noticeably thicker and stronger than before.

How does Finasteride work?

Finasteride works as a long-term method of decreasing the effect of DHT *on hair follicles. It has a high success rate in those with mild to moderate hair loss but may need to be taken for several months before any effect is seen.

*DHT stands for the hormone dihydrotestosterone. Genetic baldness is caused by a disorder that causes the hair follicles to become sensitive to DHT. As a result, they shrink, weaken and eventually die, causing hair loss.

If you’re on the fence about having a treatment done, why not read some of the comments below from previous clients who were more than happy to share their experience.

It has been well over a year now since my treatment with Better Body Clinics and I am very happy with the outcome. My skin looks natural and healthy if you are thinking about having the procedure then think no longer just get on with it, it really is a life changer and worth every penny. I would highly recommend this company.


After suffering from very bad acne I was extremely depressed, I had the treatment 9 months ago and I am in love with the results. I have healthy looking skin and my scars are fading, thank you so much.


I’ve only had my consultation with Sharon but already I know I’m in good hands. She was extremely informative and happy to answer any of my questions and talked me through what is needed for my weight loss. I have booked my treatments and I know from the results I have seen that I will be happy.
