About topical finasteride & minoxidil spray

What’s different about
this spray?

For years the only options to treat hair loss were pills or messy drops, now there’s another option. This Rx spray isn’t something you can find at the store, it’s a mixture of 0.3% finasteride and 6% minoxidil, so it’s only available if a provider prescribes it for you. Each ingredient in this quick-drying spray is clinically proven to regrow hair in as little as 3-6 months.

Good to know

How to use the spray

Once a day apply to the four zones of hair loss (the crown of the head, the top of the head, and each side of a receding hairline). The spray dries quickly so the application is no-mess and works with any hair styling routine.

Potential side effects

Like any medication, there might be side effects. With unlimited access to licensed providers you can ask questions and adjust your medication anytime. Emerging evidence suggests that topical finasteride can help regrow hair and prevent further hair loss with a lower risk of sexual side effects as compared to finasteride pills.

Frequently asked questions about topical finasteride & minoxidil spray

Does topical finasteride work?

Topical finasteride works by counteracting the enzyme that is responsible for converting testosterone to DHT and causing hair loss. Clinical studies found that men with androgenetic alopecia (aka, male pattern baldness) who used the medication saw a significant increase in total hair counts, a decrease in hair loss and were pleased with their hair growth. Finasteride, a 5α-reductase inhibitor that prevents the conversion of testosterone to DHT, mixed with minoxidil (active ingredient in Rogaine®), a vasodilator that improves blood flow to follicles and promotes hair regrowth, is a topical formulation shown to effectively treat male pattern baldness. Plus, unlike hair transplants or oral medications, topical finasteride is non-invasive and easy to use.

Where can I buy topical finasteride?

Topical finasteride is available by prescription through some dermatologists and healthcare providers. Through Hims, you can connect with a medical provider and be evaluated for prescription topical finasteride & minoxidil spray online. If approved, you get your topical medication delivered straight to your door. It is important to note that neither topical finasteride nor topical finasteride & minoxidil in combination have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Oral finasteride is FDA-approved for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in men and several minoxidil products are FDA-approved as over-the-counter treatment options for hair loss.

Why buy topical finasteride vs. oral?

While oral finasteride has been shown in robust clinical trials to have therapeutic effects in treating hair loss, some men worry about the risk of side effects. Clinical studies suggest that topical finasteride has a lower risk of systemic side effects, such as sexual dysfunction, because it is applied topically to your scalp rather than taken orally. If you are concerned about sexual side effects like erectile dysfunction, talk to a provider to see if a topical solution could be a good choice for your hair restoration. Also, with the spray you get two hair loss treatments in one spray.

Who is topical finasteride & minoxidil spray for?

The topical finasteride & minoxidil spray is used to treat male pattern hair loss (aka androgenetic alopecia), which involves a gradual thinning of scalp hair most obviously manifested as a receding hairline or balding on the top or crown of the head in men.

How do you apply topical finasteride?

With a once-a-day application of topical finasteride & minoxidil spray, you can fight hair loss with two active ingredients. Consistency is key for best results. The spray is designed to be a no-mess option for topical hair loss treatment. Of course, always use your medication exactly as your healthcare provider tells you.

What are common topical finasteride side effects?

Clinical studies have shown that topical finasteride is generally well-tolerated by most men who use it to treat male pattern baldness. However, it is important to keep in mind that the use of topical finasteride to treat hair loss has not been as comprehensively studied as oral finasteride. Like all medications, there is a risk of side effects with topical finasteride. Even though it is applied to the skin, topical finasteride may have a systemic impact. A 2018 study, found that serum DHT levels in male patients decreased while using topical finasteride compared to baseline, an indication that the medication can travel through the body. Having said that, systemic side effects typically associated with oral finasteride (e.g., erectile dysfunction, low libido) were not reported in the studies of topical finasteride treatment. However, additional research studies are required to better understand the systemic risks. The common side effects of topical finasteride were found to be localized to the site of topical application (scalp) and include: itching, irritation, burning sensation, flaking of the scalp, and redness. These side effects are typically mild in nature and resolve without intervention. If you do experience side effects with this medication, message a medical provider through the Hims platform. If you are allergic or have a hypersensitivity to topical finasteride or minoxidil, you may experience symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as rash, itching, hives and swelling of the lips, tongue, throat, and face. Seek emergency medical attention for an allergic reaction. If you are taking oral finasteride or dutasteride, a medication for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), you should not use topical finasteride, as combining the medications could increase chances of side effects.

Does finasteride work better when combined with minoxidil?

Yes. The two ingredients, finasteride & minoxidil are clinically proven to work best when combined (source). Minoxidil is a well established active ingredient used to revive follicles and increase hair density that works differently from finasteride. There are limited studies looking at the combination of topical finasteride and topical minoxidil, but this study found that topical finasteride and topical minoxidil combined showed significantly higher efficacy by global photographic assessment compared to topical minoxidil alone.

What causes hair loss in men?

Male pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia, is the most common cause of hair loss. It is typically an inherited condition. As the condition progresses the natural hair growth cycle weakens and your hair follicles shrink, causing your hair to become shorter and finer. The exact cause for this type of hair loss is unknown but it is related to the production of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Treatments that inhibit the production of DHT are sometimes effective in slowing, stopping, or reversing hair loss due to androgenic alopecia.

What ingredients are in the topical finasteride & minoxidil spray?

Active ingredients: 0.3% finasteride, 6% minoxidil. Inactive ingredients: alcohol (ethanol), propylene glycol, citric acid.

What dosage of topical finasteride & minoxidil spray is prescribed?

Your provider will prescribe what’s right for you. Typically 1ml per day (equal to 4 sprays) is prescribed for hair loss, although it may vary.

How long does it take for topical finasteride & minoxidil to work?

If you are using topical finasteride & minoxidil for hair loss, it may take 3-6 months before you start to notice early results. (source). Finasteride & minoxidil starts working as soon as it’s absorbed into your scalp. This means that you’ll start blocking the conversion of testosterone and have lower DHT levels as soon as the first dose of finasteride gets into your system. However, your hair grows through a multi-phase process that’s referred to as the hair growth cycle. This means that even though finasteride & minoxidil starts working immediately, you shouldn’t expect to see any changes in your hair for several months, even if you’re using the medication as directed. Rest assured that finasteride and minoxidil are actively working long before you can see the results.

Important Safety Information

Finasteride is for use by MEN ONLY and should NOT be used by women or children.
Read this patient information before you start taking Finasteride and each time you get a refill. There may be new information. This information does not take the place of talking with your healthcare provider about your medical condition or treatment.
What is Finasteride?
Finasteride is a prescription medicine used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia).
It is not known if Finasteride works for a receding hairline on either side of and above your forehead (temporal area).
Finasteride is not for use by women and children, and should not be handled by women and children.
Who should not take Finasteride?
Do not take Finasteride if you:
  • are pregnant or may become pregnant. Finasteride may harm your unborn baby.
    • Finasteride tablets are coated and will prevent contact with the medicine during handling, as long as the tablets are not broken or crushed. Females who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not come in contact with broken or crushed Finasteride tablets.
    • If a pregnant woman comes in contact with crushed or broken Finasteride tablets, wash the contact area right away with soap and water. If a woman who is pregnant comes into contact with the active ingredient in Finasteride, a healthcare provider should be consulted. If a woman who is pregnant with a male baby swallows or comes in contact with the medicine in Finasteride, the male baby may be born with sex organs that are not normal.
  • are allergic to any of the ingredients in Finasteride.
What should I tell my healthcare provider before taking Finasteride? Before taking Finasteride, tell your healthcare provider if you:
  • have any other medical conditions, including problems with your prostate or liver.
Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
Know the medications you take. Keep a list of them to show your healthcare provider and pharmacist when you get a new medication.
How should I take Finasteride?
  • Take Finasteride exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to take it.
  • You may take Finasteride with or without food.
  • If you forget to take Finasteride, do not take an extra tablet. Just take the next tablet as usual.
Finasteride will not work faster or better if you take it more than once a day.
What are the common side effects of this medication?
Common side effects include rash, breast tenderness or enlargement (reported in less than 1% of patients) which typically resolve after the medication is stopped, and sexual dysfunction (in clinical trials, 1.2%-1.4% of patients taking Finasteride experienced medication-related sexual dysfunction side effects including decreased libido, erectile dysfunction or a decrease in the volume of ejaculation vs. 1% of those taking placebo):
  • Decreased libido 1.8%
  • Erectile dysfunction 1.3%
  • Decreased volume of ejaculate 1.2%
Several studies have documented the majority of these side effects are reversible. However, 1.4% of the patients who experience side effects may continue to have symptoms following discontinuation of Finasteride. Of particular note there has been an association of the sexual dysfunction symptoms and the use of NSAIDS (Motrin, Advil, Aleve type medications.) For this reason Finasteride should be stopped for the period of time when you take NSAIDS.
Does Finasteride cause depression?
A literature review shows there may be evidence of increased depressive symptoms in individuals younger than age 45 while using Finasteride for hair loss. Patients with new or worsening depression should stop Finasteride use and follow up with their health care provider or a mental health therapist. Source: MedPageToday.org
Does Finasteride cause prostate cancer or prostate enlargement (BPH)?
There have been reports of a slight increased risk (1.8% with 5mg Finasteride dosage versus 1.0% placebo) of high grade prostate cancer for men over age 55 years old. These reports are from men taking a higher dosage of Finasteride (5mg) than the dosage we prescribe for hair loss (1mg). There have been conflicting studies on the increased risk in the number of high grade prostate cancers; however, several recent studies have shown no increase in the number of deaths (with a recent study showing fewer deaths) in patients who use Finasteride at the 1mg dosage. Finasteride can be useful in the treatment of BPH and urinary retention because it can have an antiandrogenic effect (testosterone blocking) at a 5mg dosage. For hair loss, patients are given a 1mg dosage, which should not produce any antiandrogenic effect.
Does Finasteride change blood Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels?
Finasteride can affect a blood test called PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) for the screening of prostate cancer. If you have a PSA test done you should tell your healthcare provider that you are taking Finasteride because Finasteride decreases PSA.
The following have been reported as less common side effects with Finasteride use:
  • Allergic reactions including: rash, itching, hives and swelling of the lips, tongue, throat, and face
  • Testicular pain
  • Male infertility and/or poor quality of semen
  • In rare cases, male breast cancer
Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.
These are not all the possible side effects of Finasteride. For more information, ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088
The following have been reported in general use with Finasteride:
  • breast tenderness and enlargement. Tell your healthcare provider about any changes in your breasts such as lumps, pain or nipple discharge.
