True Hair Prescription Oral Therapy™

True Hair Prescription Oral Therapy™ offers a range of medications tailored to combat hair loss effectively, depending on the severity of the condition, patient preference, and understanding of potential side effects. Our therapy options include, but are not limited to, low-dose oral minoxidil, finasteride, dutasteride, spironolactone, and much more. It is essential to consider that while finasteride and dutasteride are effective for hair loss, about 1-3% of men may experience decreased libido. Women with a strong personal or family history of hormonal breast and ovarian cancers may not be suitable candidates for finasteride or dutasteride due to their hormonal effects. Our expert team ensures that each treatment plan is customized to the individual's needs and medical history.

Oral Minoxidil for Hair Growth

Oral minoxidil is a low-dose medication that has shown promising results in stimulating hair growth. Originally used to treat high blood pressure, minoxidil helps promote hair growth by improving blood flow to the hair follicles, prolonging the growth phase of the hair cycle. This medication is especially beneficial for patients who have not responded well to topical treatments, providing a systemic approach to combating hair loss. Oral minoxidil is typically taken once daily, and its effects can be seen in the improved density and thickness of hair over time.

Finasteride and Dutasteride for Hair Growth

Finasteride and dutasteride are medications that target the hormonal causes of hair loss. Both drugs work by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that contributes to hair follicle miniaturization and hair loss. By reducing DHT levels, finasteride and dutasteride help prevent further hair loss and promote regrowth. Finasteride is commonly prescribed at a dose of 1 mg daily, while dutasteride is taken at a dose of 0.5 mg daily. These medications are particularly effective for male pattern baldness and can also be used in women with careful monitoring.

Similarities and Differences Between Finasteride and Dutasteride

Finasteride and dutasteride both inhibit the action of 5-alpha reductase, the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to DHT. However, they differ in their specificity and potency. Finasteride selectively inhibits Type II 5-alpha reductase, while dutasteride inhibits both Type I and Type II enzymes. This broader inhibition makes dutasteride more effective in reducing DHT levels, leading to greater clinical efficacy as demonstrated in peer-reviewed publications. Despite this, finasteride remains the only FDA-approved medication for hair growth, while dutasteride is often used off-label for this purpose. The choice between these medications depends on individual patient factors and the severity of hair loss.

Patient success stories

Francis S

I found true dermatology through a friend of mine who came here before and came in after discovering hair loss due to an immune reaction that the doctor was able to diagnose immediately. He started me off with some local injections and while i was quite concerned initially due to the large patch of baldness and after a few months it went away completely. Now i can't even spot where the bald soot used to be and i am truly thankful for the treatments. I'm now visiting Dr.sung for preventative hair loss treatments since this seems to be a genetic issue within the family. Highly recommend this caring and thoughtful doctor!!..who would haave thought hair loss could be fixed??!!!

I recently saw Dr sung for early signs of hair loss as this is something that runs in our family. He had administered five sessions of the true Derm PRP and several months later i had significant hair growth that people around me have been commenting on. I feel so much more confident and would highly recommend to others and who are also battling out similar conditions. In addition, Dr.sung is very kind and caring which added to the whole experience!
