Infiltrations of Dutasteride and Vitamins
That is to say, dutasteride (selective antiandrogen of the follicular root) directly affects inhibiting isoenzymes five alpha-reductase types 1 and 2 (the other most used antiandrogen – Finasteride- acts only on type 2).
These enzymes are the ones that transform testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. Which is responsible for the thinning of the hair due to the effect of male hormones (miniaturization process).
Blocking this step favours the thickening of the hair, and an increase in capillary density achieves.
