Meet SiloxysSystem™ Gel
SiloxysSystem™ smart delivery technology is designed to prevent side effects by keeping hair loss medication where it's meant to be.
Controlled release | The gel creates a "mesh-like" structure across the skin that slowly and uniformly delivers medication to ensure consistent absorption.
Precision targeting | Particles within the gel carry medications to the layer of skin in which hair follicles exist. There, they remain until absorbed by surrounding cells.
Limited absorption | Controlled release and precision delivery result in a more efficient administration of medications and less medication entering the bloodstream.

Frequently Asked Questions About Topical Finasteride for Hair Loss
How does topical finasteride treat hair loss?
Topical finasteride has been shown to be effective in treating male pattern hair loss and increasing hair growth. It contains a clinically proven 5-alpha reductase inhibitor that reduces excess levels of DHT in the scalp. This helps keep hair follicles healthy and reduces further thinning or bald spots. In fact, studies have shown that topical finasteride can slow the rate at which men lose hair and regrow noticeable amounts of new hair.
SiloxysSystem™ delivery technology helps ensure that active ingredients target hair follicles directly and effectively, minimizing the amount that enters the body. It may also be more efficient than traditional topical application methods.
In general, topical finasteride has fewer risks of side effects compared to oral medication. Some potential side effects may include scalp irritation or itching at the application site. However, these are usually mild or temporary. Talk to your doctor about any questions or concerns you might have about using topical finasteride for your hair loss treatment needs.
What is SiloxysSystem™ Gel?
SiloxysSystem™ is a topical base that contains silicone. It’s designed to help create and maintain a concentration gradient across the skin to help ensure consistent delivery of medications and minimize potential sexual side effects associated with excess absorption of active ingredients.
Film-forming agents within the base create a barrier across the skin that gradually releases medications, which is different from traditional topical delivery methods. In this way, the gel presents a solution for safely delivering liposome-bound drugs such as finasteride and dutasteride in controlled doses.
Does topical finasteride have side effects?
There is a potential for side effects depending on the individual. While most people find topical finasteride safe, some users have reported experiencing unwanted side effects. Most commonly, topical finasteride can cause temporary irritation at the application site and even mild redness or itchiness.
Others have reported experiencing headaches and dizziness after topical finasteride use. In rare cases, topical finasteride has been linked to depression, anxiety, and loss of libido (sex drive) in men. However, the risk of side effects is less common with topical application.
It is important to note that topical finasteride has been used successfully as a hair loss treatment. However, it can still carry certain risks if not taken correctly or with caution. Patients should first consult a physician to assess their risk for any potential side effects or complications. Follow the treatment instructions closely when applying topical finasteride to minimize any possible side effects or risks associated with its use.
Is topical finasteride a safe treatment for hair loss?
Many drugs have the potential to cause adverse reactions. Oral medications in particular can lead to greater systemic exposure, which may increase the likelihood of experiencing sexual ide effects.
Topical delivery systems, like SiloxysSystem™ Gel, may help reduce the amount of active drug circulating in the bloodstream. Not all topical formulations are designed for this purpose and will not minimize these unwanted effects.
How long does it take to see results from topical finasteride?
Hair growth and/or a reduction in patchy hair loss is typically noticeable within 3 to 6 months of treatment. To maximize results, patients should remember to consistently follow application and dosing instructions provided to them by their physician. Factors such as age or genetics may impact when users start to see results.
Patients experiencing telogen effluvium, traction alopecia, or scarring alopecia should consult a dermatologist to determine their best treatment options. Topical finasteride does not treat these conditions.
Can I use topical finasteride with other hair loss treatments?
Yes, topical finasteride can be used with other hair loss treatments. Finasteride is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor that reduces the production of DHT and can effectively combat hair loss without additional treatments. But it can be combined with other medications for greater treatment impact.
When using topical finasteride alongside other hair loss treatments, you should follow your physician’s instructions closely to understand any potential interactions. Some active ingredients found within topical finasteride solutions may interact with ingredients found within other topical treatments. Ask your physician if you are unsure about the compatibility of treatments and risk for adverse effects.
What is a compounded hair loss treatment?
Unlike other FDA-approved drugs, compounded medications are tailored to meet specific patient needs. These unique preferences are addressed by combining drugs, altering active ingredients, or changing dosage forms. Compounded topical medications may lower the absorption of active ingredients into the bloodstream and reduce the risk of adverse reactions.
Compounded medications offer more options than mass-produced versions because they can be customized according to individual patient’s needs and preferences. There may be additional preparation costs associated with compounded medications.
