Hair loss affects both men and women. It can have strong emotional and psychological consequences on both sexes. Hair loss can have multiple causes ranging from hormonal changes, stress, iron deficiency to fungal infections and medicine induced hair loss.A common treatment we offer at Tailor Made Compounding is a minoxidil solution. This is available at concentrations ranging from 2-7%.Minoxidil has been shown to promote increases in both hair regrowth and thickness. It is thought to dilate small blood vessels around the scalp stimulating hair growth. Maximum benefit of this medication is usually seen after several months of use. It is important to note that minoxidil treatment must be continued to maintain hair growth; otherwise, the pre-treatment state returns within 3-4 months from ceasing treatment.
Another hair loss solution we offer is finasteride capsules. This medication does require a doctor’s prescription. While commercial preparations of finasteride are available, we offer the benefit of tailored doses to your specific needs – often at a more affordable price. We also formulate a capsule which combines the finasteride with the herbal and mineral ingredients (saw palmetto and zinc) which are thought to minimize hair loss and promote hair growth.
