TLDR Use finasteride, dutasteride, and minoxidil for hair loss treatment.
The 2017 Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Male-Pattern and Female-Pattern Hair Loss recommend finasteride, dutasteride, and minoxidil as first-line treatments for MPHL and FPHL. The guidelines provide recommendations and grades of recommendation for each treatment option, including oral medication, topical applications, hair transplantation, and wearing a wig. The guidelines also discuss the effectiveness of various hair growth agents, LED and low-level laser irradiation, and topical adenosine. The use of growth factors, cell transplantation therapy, and oral minoxidil is not recommended due to insufficient evidence of their safety and effectiveness.View this study on onlinelibrary.wiley.com →
