Hair loss and thinning hair can be brought on by a variety of different conditions. The most common type of hair loss is referred to as pattern hair loss (or Androgenic Alopecia).
Male and female pattern hair loss affects 50% of men and women by 50 years of age. The slow, relentless, involuntary loss of hair creates emotional stress for millions. Countless Internet sites and late night infomercials purport to have discovered a “miracle” cure for pattern hair loss. Unfortunately, these “cures” are nonexistent and only serve to create cynicism and further stress for patients.
Fortunately, there are safe, effective medications available to treat pattern hair loss. The most widely accepted explanation for male pattern hair loss is the DHT theory. DHT stands for dihydrotestosterone, a byproduct of testosterone created by the enzyme 5-Reductase. During puberty, high levels of DHT in the body are normal and aid in the development of secondary sexual characteristics. Later, in life however, high levels of DHT can have negative effects on hair health. Essentially, DHT will attach itself to the hair follicle depriving it of nutrition and causing atrophy (shrinking). Eventually, the follicle will fall out.
What is the significance of this? Only two types of treatments are going to work: Treatments that reduce DHT level, or treatments that stimulate growth despite it. There are countless hair loss products on the market, which work either by reducing the DHT level or by stimulating hair growth. The best solution will be the combination of these two approaches. To this end, Lipogaine’s effort is to utilize a comprehensive and holistic approach by employing a proprietary liposome delivery system to include a number of proven ingredients in one solution and offer a complete solution for maximum results yet with unparalleled simplicity.
