What types of hair loss can be treated?

Minoxidil and finasteride are proven to help slow hair loss and support the regrowth of hair in problem areas.


One of the most common signs of hair loss is thinning. If your hair isn’t as full as it used to be, there are approaches you can take to help you prevent further hair loss.

Bald spots

Baldness is a clear indicator of lost hair. There are many reasons why it might happen but medicated solutions can help you make a change.

Receding hairline

You may have noticed that your hairline is moving further back. It’s usually caused by hormonal changes that make your hair follicles shrink. A prescription treatment can help you regain some of the hair you’ve lost.

Genetic hair loss

You might be losing hair because it's been passed down to you through your genes. Using a hair loss treatment should help slow hair loss and stop you from experiencing it prematurely.
