The oral medication is also clincally shown to improve overall hair fullness and health and treat hair loss at the anterior/mid area of the scalp.1
How Does Finasteride Work?
Finasteride is a 5-reductase inhibitor. It prevents the enzyme 5-reductase from converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
DHT is responsible for male characteristics such as hair growth, deep voice and muscles, but for reasons not fully understood, when DHT builds up in the scalp is causes hair loss. It binds to androgen receptors in the scalp and prevents blood supply from reaching the hair follicles. As a result. the hair follicles shrink in a process caused miniaturization and cannot produce more hair.

What Are FSA and HSA Accounts?
FSA's and HSA's are federal programs that make it easy for you to enjoy significant tax benefits for qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses. Each program works a little differently but with each you avoid federal, state and local income taxes on any funds that you use for qualified medical expenses.
FSA tax benefits are administered by your job. Funds in an amount that you decide —within the program limits—are withdrawn from your paycheck without any payroll tax deductions.
Tax benefits with an HSA may be administered that way but there are also other options.
How Do I Use My FSA/HSA Funds?
You can use a pre-loaded debit card or get reimbursed from your FSA or HSA account after you make your purchase or a combination of both methods.
