Setipiprant For Hair Loss | 2021 Review


    Setipiprant For Hair Loss

    Millions of people across the world are looking for ways to prevent hair loss and stimulate hair growth.  From hair tattoos to beard transplants – the options are becoming greater each year. The study of a new drug called Setipiprant shows that it could be very effective in preventing hair loss, however, it is in its early research phase. 

    Hair loss affects many people and can place a toll on their confidence and self-esteem. Women are now opting for hair transplants and other methods to restore their hair naturally and effectively. For some people, they don’t wish to undergo surgery and thus they look for alternative options such as prescription or hormone drugs like Setipiprant. 

    Before blindly taking any type of drug or medicine, we highly recommend that you consider your nutrition, stress levels and alcohol intake as these factors can strongly contribute to hair loss.  Prevention is always the best method but if your hair loss is too severe then hair transplantation or prescription drugs may be your only option.

    How Does Setipiprant Work?

    Simply put, Setipiprant is a new oral drug that is in an early research phase. It is currently being tested and studied on its effectiveness as a hair loss prevention treatment. Setipiprant works by blocking the PGD2 (prostaglandin) receptor which has been linked with hair loss. It is a potent drug and must first complete its clinical trials to be proven to help treat hair loss.

    What Is Androgenic Alopecia?

    Androgenic Alopecia is a form of hair loss in both men and women. It is the most common type of hair loss and affects more than 50 percent of men over the age of 50. Some men and women may find that this condition begins much earlier than their peers and can cause confidence and self-esteem issues as mentioned above. Simply put, over time your hair growth cycles weaken and the hair follicles shrink, producing shorter and thinner hair strands. Many people are turning to hair transplantation and drugs such as Setipiprant to prevent and treat hair loss.

    Can Setipiprant Prevent Hair Loss?

    As the drug is still in its clinical trials, we cannot explicitly say if it is truly effective for preventing hair loss. There are already current drugs on the market such as Finasteride that works by decreasing the amount of DHT in your body, which in turn, prevents hair loss. If Setipiprant can prove it can be as effective as Finasteride without the same amount of side effects then it will be a successful treatment for hair loss prevention. 

    Is A Hair Transplant A Better Solution?

    If you are willing to undergo a short hair transplantation procedure, then 99 times out of 100 a hair transplant is a better option compared to taking drugs such as Finasteride and Setipiprant. A hair transplant is able to give you natural-looking results and rapidly increase hair density and thickness.  A hair transplant works by taking healthy hair follicles from your donor area and implanting them into the area of the scalp where hair growth is sparse.
