About hair loss

Losing your hair is a natural part of life, but there are real treatments that can help prevent baldness and regrow hair.

What is androgenetic alopecia?

Androgenetic alopecia, also known as female or male pattern baldness, is a common form of hair loss.

Male-pattern baldness typically appears first on the top of the head, or at the front of the head around the hairline. A receding hairline can progress to become partial or complete baldness.

What are my hair loss treatment options?

There are many different treatment options for hair loss and what is appropriate will depend on your condition. Topical agents like minoxidil are often prescribed to elongate the growth phase of hair. Your doctor may also prescribe oral medications.

How long do I need to be on hair loss treatment?

Depending on the medication you are prescribed, it may take three to six months to start seeing improvements. Treatment should continue for as long as you desire the clinical effect. However, age limits and medical restrictions will need to be considered. Once treatment is ceased, any hair that is gained will slowly fall out.

Hair loss affects up to 42% of  men. [¹]

FAQ

What can I expect when treating hair loss?

Once you begin hair growth treatment, it’s common to see no visible change in the first three months. In fact, in the first two months, some people may notice that they’re shedding more fine hairs than they were before. This is temporary and completely normal.

Within the three to six month period, you may notice that hair loss has slowed, stopped, or in some cases, maybe even reversed. We recommend taking photographs to track your progress.

After six months, your hair loss may considerably slow or stop completely. Some patients may see signs of regrowth, which usually occurs first at the crown of the head.

It’s important to note that the above are a general guide only. Results will vary from person to person and depend on the hair loss treatment you are using. Patients using topical medications such as minoxidil could see some progress in as little as two weeks. Oral medications typically take up to three months to show an effect.

Consistent daily treatment is required for at least 12 months to maintain results and increase the chance of regrowth. Throughout this time, your doctor will follow up with you to discuss your progress and condition.

What hair loss treatments are prescribed?

Unfortunately due to Australian law we aren't allowed to list specific medication names until you have been assessed by a doctor. All of the prescription hair loss treatments available through Rosemary are safe to use. Your doctor will prescribe you a personalised treatment plan based on your medical history, symptoms and needs.

If you have been prescribed before, you can check to see if we carry your hair loss treatment here.

How much does hair loss treatment cost with Rosemary?

The one-time doctor consultation fee is $20 and hair loss treatments start from as low as $2 per day. Your personalised treatment plan comes with unlimited follow ups and messaging with the doctor. If the doctor decides it is not medically appropriate to prescribe hair loss treatment for you, your $20 consultation fee is refunded. All hair loss treatment plans come with free medicine delivery and convenient automatic reorders.

How do hair loss treatments for men work?

One of the most common prescription hair loss treatments for men is a drug known as a type II 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. It regulates the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is known to shrink hair follicles. By targeting this hormone, scalp levels of DHT are lowered, which reduces hair loss and can potentially help to regrow your hair.

How does minoxidil work?

Minoxidil works by widening blood vessels and opening potassium channels. This increases blood, nutrient and oxygen flow into the hair follicle which stimulates hair growth.

What if I’m planning on having a family?

These drugs may affect your libido, sexual function and fertility by reducing your seminal quality. Tablets (especially broken tablets) should not be handled by pregnant women or women who are trying to conceive.

How do prescription hair loss treatments affect my prostate?

In higher doses, prescription hair loss treatments typically prescribed for thinning hair and male pattern baldness have been used to treat benign prostatic disease, so these drugs can alter PSA levels.

Do hair loss treatments affect sexual function?

Prescription hair loss treatments for men can cause loss of libido, erectile dysfunction and failure to ejaculate. Speak with your doctor about any side effects you're experiencing.

When does my hair loss require further investigation?

If you’re losing your hair, and it isn’t due to male or female pattern baldness, your condition will require further investigation. Hair loss can present in various forms and be the result of a number of factors, including autoimmune disorders like alopecia areata, hypothyroidism, fungal infections, postpartum hair loss or telogen effluvium. If you are male and at risk of prostate disease (family history, above the age of 40 and with symptoms), further investigation will also be required.
