What are hair loss and hair thinning?
At Hair Doctors, we believe in the long-term care of our patients. Androgenetic Alopecia or female or male pattern baldness is a lifelong progressive condition caused by sensitivity to androgen hormones.
They cause hair at the top of your head to thin and fall out over time. Starting early on prescription medications can help slow down the natural progression of Androgenetic Alopecia and keep your hair healthier and thicker for longer.
The two key medications in combating hair loss have been approved by TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration). Both these medications work alongside each other to tackle hair loss. One prevents further hair loss whilst the other stimulates hair growth.
We understand that medication is a long-term commitment as hair loss treatments and therefore at Hair Doctors, we have developed highly effective and evidence-based treatment plans to suit your needs and lifestyle.
These range from combined oral capsules to topical solutions and foams.
We also offer a variety of prescription medications for female hair loss.
Hair loss and hair thinning are conditions characterised by a decrease in the amount of hair on the scalp. Hair loss can range from mild hair thinning to complete baldness.
Hair thinning is a common condition that a variety of factors, including genetics, aging, hormonal changes, stress, and certain medications, can cause. In some cases, hair loss and hair thinning can be treated with medications or other treatments.

Benefits of hair loss prescription
There are several benefits that come with using hair loss prescription medications such as:
One primary benefit of hair loss prescription medication treatments is that they can help to regrow dormant follicles back into the growth phase and thicken thinning hairs by stimulating new hair growth. This can significantly improve the confidence of an individual who is suffering from hair loss as hair density is greatly increased.
Hair loss prescription medication treatments can also be used to prevent further hair loss from occurring. This is especially helpful for those who are genetically predisposed to pattern baldness and other forms of hair loss.
Medication treatments can also help to strengthen existing hair, making it less likely to break off or thin out. This can result in a fuller, thicker head of hair. They also increase collagen and elastin production.
Hair loss prescription medication treatments also often have beneficial side effects on the scalp. The medications can help to reduce inflammation and irritation, which can contribute to hair loss and hair follicle health.
Unlike other treatments for hair loss like surgery, hair loss prescription medication treatments are relatively accessible and can often be prescribed by your doctor.

What causes thinning hair and hair loss?
Thinning hair and hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors, such as genetics, aging, hormonal changes, certain medical conditions, medications, or physical and emotional stress.
Genetics plays a large role in determining a person’s hair growth, and a genetic predisposition to thinning hair or hair loss can be passed on from either parent.
Aging can also contribute to hair thinning and hair loss, as the natural aging process causes the hair to become thinner and weaker over time. Hormonal changes, such as those during pregnancy or menopause, can also cause temporary hair thinning or loss.
Some medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders and autoimmune diseases, can lead to hair thinning and hair loss. In addition, certain medications, such as chemotherapy drugs, can lead to temporary or permanent hair loss.
Lastly, physical or emotional stress can cause hair to become brittle and easily break or fall off.
