What is Acne?


Hair loss (Alopecia starts as a receding hairline and thinning of hair on the crown and temples, leading o a U-shaped pattern around the head. If severe, it can cause complete baldness. Hair loss can be caused by certain illnesses, medication or lifestyle factors but the most common cause is genetic. This is caused by an abundance of the male hormone dihydro-testosterone, which weaken and inactivate hair follices, preventing hair re-growth. Under-lying causes are thryroid complications, trauma and chemotherapy.

Male hair loss affects up to fifty percent of men by the age of 50 and usually starts in the late twenties. Although not a health concern, men may feel embarrassed by this and feel self-conscious about their appearance.

How does the treatment work?


At SmartMeds Clinic, we offer one of two effective therapy options for people with male pattern baldness. You need to initiate treatment as soon as possible to obtain the best results.

Propecia contains the active ingredient finasteride and works by inhibiting DHT formation, thereby lowering its effect on hair follicles. Taking Propecia or non-branded finasteride can slow down, stop and even reverse the balding process. You can expect to see progress with three to four months of taking this therapy.


You can find out more about each of our treatments above. Further questions or queries can be handled by getting in touch with the SmartMeds Team.
