The hair loss market is huge and sometimes baffling, with a host of products with varying efficacy (or lack of it) and side effects.
One of the leading products in hair renewal is dutasteride, available as both oral and topical solutions. Dutasteride reduces hair loss from the scalp and prevents the body from converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT, which causes hair loss). In fact, as discovered in a 2004 clinical trial, dutasteride blocks over 98% of DHT production.
However, oral dutasteride comes with side effects. These can include erectile dysfunction (ED), premature ejaculation (PE), and reduced sex drive. Let’s be honest… there’s little consolation in having a full head of hair if you find yourself unable to perform in the bedroom.
But there’s good news – XYON has developed a topical treatment of dutasteride that goes above and beyond typical treatments in reducing or eliminating many of the side effects of the oral version. Let’s look a little more closely at this remarkable treatment, so you can decide whether it might be right for you.
We’ll review the application, efficacy, and effects and determine whether this is safer than hair-loss pills and alternative treatments.
XYON Topical DutasteridePros + Cons
- Lower side effect risk: 92% less systemic absorption with topical application, rather than oral, dutasteride ensures fewer side effects (usually sexual).
- More effective: XYON’s gel technology combined with SiloxysSystem™ Gel allows for up to 2% Dutasteride solution and drives the formula precisely into the scalp.
- Compounded just for you: XYON offers a personalized formula with your medical history, lifestyle, age, and other factors in mind.
- Lasts 10-17x longer: The controlled release mechanism gradually deposits active ingredients into your follicle sites over multiple hours rather than all at once.
- Easy to apply: Many customers prefer it to the aerosol sprays and liquid droppers common to other topical treatments.
- Not FDA-approved: Dutasteride for hair loss is currently sold off-label, which simply means it was approved to treat another condition than hair loss initially.
- Only 1 active ingredient: Combining minoxidil or finasteride with dutasteride could potentially yield even better results.
- Not cheap: Works out as more expensive than most topical creams and gels.
