How does propecia works
Propecia contains active ingredient finasteride which works to prevent the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Dihydrotestosterone is substance formed on scalp when testosterone and enzyme type II 5 alpha reductase react with each other. The hormone which is created as a result then gets into hair follicles and works to damage and shrink them, preventing visible hair from growing. In short propecia works by blocking the process which converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone on scalp. Scientist believe that DHT and family history are key factors for hair loss in men for the same reason the propecia finasteride blocks the DHT formation on scalp and in this way male pattern baldness is treated.
