Hair loss drugs and Devices

Hair loss drugs and devices.

There are no magic solutions to hair restoration, but there are a variety of techniques that work, all of which are discussed here. These are non surgical solutions for hair loss treatment which you can buy and use at home, rather than surgical treatments such as hair transplants or stem cell treatments.

Using the information here, you can make the decision that suits you best. We offer all these treatments, enabling us to truly tailor the best hair loss treatment to suit your needs and aspirations. You can buy some of these hair loss tablets and treatments at our pharmacy –

Some of these hair loss tablets require a doctors private prescription, which we can arrange by an easy online consultation. These drugs include the various 5 alpha reductase inhibitors, as originally used for protate disease.

Avodart (Dutasteride) is a tablet that is still undergoing trials in many countries, including the UK, but is not yet licensed for hair loss, although it is licensed for the treatment of prostate disease.

Buy Avodart or Dutasteride

Minoxidil (Regaine) solution. Minoxidil was used initially in the treatment of high blood pressure, and has achieved some modest results in promoting scalp hair growth. However, a side effect of this can be increased hair growth across the whole body, not just scalp hair.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)

Is a tablet supplement which seems to promote better growth of hair and nails. It will not counteract genetic hair loss but can help your remaining hair retain quality growth.


There are no “super vitamins” which will stop hair loss but a vitamin (or mineral) deficiency can result in poor hair growth. Particularly important are Iron, Zinc, vitamin Bs and also essential fatty acids (most commonly found in meat eating diets but also in vegetarian diets if care is taken to include them).

Stem Cell treatments and therapy

Stem Cell treatments and therapy are the very latest options using activated stem cells to reactivate the hair follicles before they become too dormant.

Essentially like a supercharged version of PRP – the evidence is now mounting that they can help male and female pattern hair loss, alopecia areata and potentially chemotherapy hair loss too.

PRP, A cell

PRP, A cell are treatments based around extracellular components of the blood or skin. The theory is that the accessory chemicals involved in healing, will also promote better growth of the hair (and also tried in facial rejuvenation, bone repair etc). There is some evidence to suggest that it can help but not every one is convinced and it can be expensive.


Mesotherapy is shallow injections of vitamins to induce regrowth but again the evidence is weak.


Spironolactone is an old drug, used to reduce androgens in general. Although it can be effective, it is a bit like using a shotgun approach, compared to drugs like Propecia.

Cyproterone and Oestrogens

Cyproterone and Oestrogens are usually used in women, rather than men (unless transgender) as they will drastically change the balance of sex hormones in the body. They reduce the androgenic hormonal balance and are very useful for women with poly cystic ovary syndrome and can be used for women with male pattern hair loss.

Laser combs, helmets and lasercaps

There is little evidence of significant effect. The best results demonstrated still only showed regrowth of wispy hairs, rather than good, long, quality hairs

Excellent team. I’m thrilled with the results from my first hair transplant. Looking forward to seeing how my hair thickens after this second visit. Thank you for all your hard work. I really enjoyed the day.
