Propecia Before and After

It may be recommended to you by your physician to buy Propecia Canada (Finasteride) to treat male pattern baldness on the anterior and vertex mid scalp area. This drug prevents the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. Male pattern hair loss or baldness is defined as the thinning of hair and a receding hairline which could finally result in total balding. By decreasing the amount of dihydrotestosterone in the body, this drug increases the rate of hair regrowth while reducing the rate of hair loss. It is important to note that this drug only regulates hair growth on the scalp, and its usage does not affect hair growth on other body parts.

How Does Propecia Work?

Propecia treats male hair loss, which is caused by an over-sensitivity to a particular hormone (known as dihydrotestosterone or DHT) found near the scalp. Propecia tablets increase the number of hairs on the scalp and prevent further hair loss, without affecting your body hair. They work by blocking the enzyme that processes testosterone and turns it into DHT. It leads to a small increase in testosterone and encourages hair growth. The active ingredient in Propecia is finasteride.


Propecia contains the active ingredient finasteride, which is a type 2 ‘5-alpha reductase inhibitor’ used to prevent the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
