What to expect

There will likely be no visible change before 3 months. After 3-4 months of daily use, you may notice that hair loss has slowed, stopped, or maybe even starting to regrow.

1-2 months: Save it

There will likely be no visible change in the first two months. Though some people may shed more fine hairs than before. This is temporary and normal.

3-6 months: Regrow it

At this point, it may become noticeable that hair loss has slowed, stopped, or in some cases maybe even reversed. Take a photo to track your progress.

Help with side effects

By now, hair loss may have considerably slowed or stopped, and some people may see signs of regrowth (usually at the crown of the head). Consistent daily treatment is required to maintain results and increase the chance of regrowth.

How does hair loss treatment with Roman work?

We use telemedicine technology and U.S. licensed physicians  to provide hair loss treatment that’s reliable, convenient, and discreet.

It starts with your dynamic online visit. Your Roman-affiliated doctor needs to know about your health (current prescriptions, lifestyle, habits, medical history, and symptoms) and see pictures of your current hair loss. They also need to see an official ID to confirm your identity. They review everything, determine if telemedicine is safe for you , and either approve your treatment request or follow up within 24 hours.

If you qualify, our doctors will provide a diagnosis and prescribe the right course of treatment to help you stop hair loss—and you may even regrow hair.
If approved, your FDA-approved medication will come with a  treatment plan with a great deal of information about hair loss. It is important you take the time to read it all.

What type of hair loss treatment do you prescribe?

Our physicians may prescribe finasteride (generic Propecia) to treat male pattern hair loss (androgenic alopecia). This medication helps patients maintain the hair they have or possibly even regrow some hair they have lost.

You can also get minoxidil (generic Rogaine), an over-the-counter topical treatment, to slow or even stops hair loss at the crown of the head.

Your doctor may recommend the use of finasteride combined with minoxidil.
Finasteride is not appropriate for all men and should never be used by women or handled by pregnant women. To learn more about who should not use finasteride and the potential side effects, please see the FAQ below regarding side effects and the important safety information.

Are there side effects or hair loss medication?

The most common side effects associated with minoxidil are local skin irritation. Systemic side effects are rare as less than 2% of it gets absorbed.

Like most medications, finasteride is not safe for everyone. In clinical trials, less than 2% of men experienced sexual dysfunction due to finasteride. In addition, finasteride can lower serum prostate-specific antigen and may increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancers. If you decide to seek care through Roman, your Roman-affiliated physician will be available to answer your questions about side effects. Finasteride is not approved for use in women, and pregnant women should not handle finasteride. To learn more about risks associated with the use of finasteride, please see important safety information.

Just as no drug works on everyone, no drug is 100% safe, and finasteride is no exception. Becoming familiar with the possible side effects will help you identify if you are one of the men who experiences them. If you do, you should stop immediately and inform your doctor.

Is hair loss treatment effective?

Hair loss treatment can work to preserve hair and possibly even regrow hair. In one study, Finasteride was effective at stopping hair loss in 83% of men compared to 28% for the placebo group.

Finasteride is not appropriate for all men and should never be used by women or handled by pregnant women. To learn more about who should not use finasteride and the potential side effects, please see the FAQ below regarding side effects and the important safety information.

How long does it take for hair loss treatment to work?

Finasteride and minoxidil typically take 3 to 4 months of daily use to start seeing visible changes. It can take up to a year to see the maximum results. As long as you don’t experience side effects, it’s best to continue medication for one full year before deciding on whether the medication is doing all it can for you. Like all medications, finasteride and minoxidil will work differently for different people. View the important safety information.
