HAIR LOSS TREATMENT

Delivered to your door

As the most common cause of male hair loss, androgenic alopecia affects 50% of men by age 40.

The hair on the scalp is considered the crowning glory, with the threat of hair loss causing considerable anxiety for many men.

Although noticing the first signs of hair loss can be disheartening, there are effective treatments available to visibly reduce the appearance of thinning.

Prevent further hair loss and promote regrowth with effective treatments from hub.health.

Finding the right hair loss treatment

Along with having a family history of hair loss, men with male pattern baldness tend to have higher levels of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the balding part of their scalp than in other parts. Therefore, to effectively treat hair loss, it’s important to target the production of DHT.

Once hair loss has occurred over a long period, it can be challenging to reverse, hence the need to seek appropriate treatment upon noticing the first signs of hair loss.

Dihydrotestosterone

Prescription tablets

Prescription drugs that belong to a class of medications known as 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors (5ARIs) can be used to treat men with male pattern hair loss.

These medications work by blocking the effect of the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase – the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone into DHT. Through this action, these medications increase new hair growth and prevent further hair loss.

Topical Treatments

Topical medication used to stimulate new hair growth in the treatment of male pattern baldness.

Although the precise mechanism of action isn’t completely understood, research has shown that topical treatments causes hair to enter the growth phase of the hair growth cycle early, thus increasing the number of hairs growing.

Along with oral meds that lower the levels of DHT in the scalp, this is one of the most effective treatment options to improve hair growth and stop symptoms of male baldness from worsening.

Side effects of hair loss treatments

Many men who use oral meds to treat hair loss won’t experience any side effects. However, like most medications, there is always a possibility of side effects.

For the prescription hair loss medications hub.health offers, less common side effects may include difficulty achieving an erection, decreased libido, decreased amount of semen released during sexual intercourse, depression, breast tenderness, and pain in the testicles.

Depending on the prescription strength formulation, topical minoxidil’s most common side effects include skin irritation, itchiness, and soreness at the site of application.

When prescribed a hair loss treatment, your hub.health medical team will provide detailed information on potential side effects. It’s important to consult your doctor or pharmacist immediately if you experience ongoing or troublesome side effects related to any hair loss treatment you have been prescribed.

Frequently asked questions

hub.health uses a secure digital health platform to provide discreet, convenient, and affordable access to hair loss treatment from an Australian based clinician, all from the privacy of your home.

After completing the online questionnaire, your assigned clinician will determine if you’re a candidate for hair loss treatment. If you’re successful, we’ll organise fast delivery to your door (we’ll even manage your repeats when they’re due). If your clinician identifies a potential risk in issuing hair loss treatment, they’ll likely refer you to an in-person GP for further review.

hub.health doctors issue prescription medication to treat male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia). Prescription hair loss medication helps to maintain current hair volume while preventing further loss and potentially regrowing hair in areas where it has been lost.

Our doctors may also prescribe Minoxidil 5% non-prescription as a topical or capsule treatment, which has been proven as one of the most effective treatments for hair regrowth. Your hair loss treatment will be specifically tailored to you, so make sure you don’t share with anyone else, even if they claim to have the same condition as you.

In one study, 90% of men who used prescription medication either maintained their hair volume or noticed improvements in hair growth. 40% of men who used Minoxidil 5% non-prescription experienced an increase in hair growth.

As per the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) guidelines, it’s important to emphasise:

No hair loss treatment will completely reverse the process
The response to treatment is quite variable
Some people will not respond to particular treatments.

The likelihood of hair loss treatment not working boils down to consistency. If you start and stop or skip days of treatment, your treatment will be less effective. It may even stop working altogether. If after 2-4 months you haven’t achieved results, consult with your doctor. There may be an underlying reason why treatment hasn’t been effective, and a professional will help you identify and address this.

All medications carry a risk of side effects. For hair loss treatment, potential side effects include:

  • Decreased sexual desire (low libido)
  • Inability to develop or maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • Testicular pain or discomfort
  • Problems related to ejaculation, such as changes to ejaculatory volume
  • Mood changes or depression

No, our clinicians don’t need to see photos to prescribe your hair treatment. We include hair loss examples in the questionnaire for you to choose which most accurately aligns with your hair loss.

Hair loss treatment programs can take 3 to 6 months of daily use for visible changes to occur, and up to one year for maximum results. Like all medications, results vary from person to person based on individual circumstances.

A clinician will review your assessment and respond within 24 hours. In most cases it will be much sooner than this.

Once your treatment has been paid for, we will ship with express delivery to anywhere in Australia, meaning your package should arrive within 1-3 days. Your product is shipped in an Australia Post package, which means it will be completely discreet.

Of course! If you log into your profile and head to the ‘Products’ tab, you will see a ‘Manage Treatment’ button. Click this and you’ll see the ability to send a message to your clinician. If you’re having any issues, just drop us a line at [email protected]
