Finax is a form of treatment for androgenic alopecia. The main ingredient is finasteride, a type 2 5α-reductase inhibitor.
Finax is used to remedy hair loss that occur due to male pattern baldness. Type 2 5α-reductase is an enzyme that is responsible for the conversion of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a precursor to testosterone. The enzyme converts DHT to testosterone. This is a major contribution to hair loss. DHT affects the hair follicles where the hair grows. It causes the hair to grow finer and shorter. This eventually results in a cessation of hair growth in that area.
Finax disrupts the DHT in the hair follicles and prevents its accumulation. This allows the hair to grow back once more, particularly in the front of the head. Patches of the scalp where hair has not grown for a long period of time cannot be stimulated by this medication.
