How Does Topical Dutasteride Treat Female Hair Loss?

Approximately 40% of postmenopausal women experience some degree of hair loss (Hershkovitz & Tosti, 2013). This hair loss may be caused by changing hormone levels and a treatment like dutasteride may help. High DHT levels can cause hair follicles to shrink and stop producing hairs. Dutasteride defends against this by preventing the production of DHT.

Is Topical Dutasteride Safe to Treat Female Hair Loss?

Small-scale clinical studies and case reports have shown that women can take dutasteride without serious or long-lasting side effects. A doctor will review your medical history before determining whether dutasteride is right for you. Dutasteride must not be taken if you're pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a personal, or family history of breast cancer. The systemic side effects of dutasteride may be reduced with the help of a delivery system like SiloxysSystem™ Gel.

I have been using topical dutasteride in many of my patients for a number of years now. The unique topical SiloxysSystem™ Gel formulation allows excellent targeting of the dutasteride to the scalp with limited absorption and less reduction of the testosterone hormone in the body. This can be extremely beneficial for men and women who need to be treated for hair loss.
