Is hair loss reversible?
Unfortunately there is currently no one-off “fix” for Male Pattern Baldness. However, there are now treatments including our Treatment Spray available that are effective in regrowing hair and slowing down the hair loss process.
Can women use Unthin?
Our product contains Finasteride, which is in a class of medication called 5-alpha reductase inhibitors, known for their use in blocking Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Finasteride is only approved for use in males at the moment, and not suitable to be prescribed to females.
Is this treatment safe?
Yes. We are a pharmacy registered with the GPhC. The short questionnaire consultation will ensure your suitability for our Treatment Spray; checking any allergies and other factors which may mean the treatment is not suitable for you. Unthin subscribers also have access to a dedicated Pharmacist who will answer any queries or concerns at any point during the treatment schedule.
The NHS says on their website that “finasteride and minoxidil are the main treatments for male pattern baldness.” Finasteride and minoxidil are the two main active ingredients in Unthin.
How does this compare to other treatments?
Many others provide finasteride in tablet form, which is taken whilst also using a Minoxidil topical solution. Our Treatment Spray combines both of these popular and tried-and-tested solutions into one topical head spray. Because our Treatment Spray is not ingested and the treatment is applied directly to the source, the potential side effects are minimal and the treatment has an increased success rate.
Our dose of Finasteride is based on water volume - not mg as other companies display. Our comparison is 1.4mg of Finasteride (0.14%w/v).
Does this work for receding hairlines?
Yes, the Treatment Spray is suitable for restoring hairlines. We recommend applying it to the most affected areas and then massaging across the whole scalp. You will benefit from hair growth in the areas required, and overall thicker hair throughout.
Should I just get a hair transplant?
While hair transplants may appear like the be all and end all solution, unfortunately they are not as permanent as they sound. They require regular maintenance, often with the aid of Minoxidil and Finasteride which are the solutions combined in our Treatment Spray.
Therefore even if you were to get a hair transplant, you would likely end up using a similar solution!
Do I need to take pills?
No, our Treatment Spray combines minoxidil and finasteride (which is sometimes taken in pill form) into a convenient spray so it can be used with minimal potential side effects and has an increased success rate.
How long will it take to work?
When using the Treatment Spray daily as instructed, you can expect to see initial results after 3 months and then after 6 months the hair growth should be very noticeable. You will need patience and faith that the product will produce results.
Can I get this on the NHS or in shops?
Unthin treatments are only available via this website; this means that our clinical team are able to check your suitability for the treatment and provide appropriate after care. Most male pattern baldness treatments are only available through private prescription.
The NHS says on their website that “finasteride and minoxidil are the main treatments for male pattern baldness.” Finasteride and minoxidil are the two main active ingredients in our Treatment Spray.
How is it used & does it smell?
Our Treatment Spray is applied through 6 sprays, twice daily. This provides the scalp the correct amount of solution designed for optimal hair regrowth: the liquid can then be massaged into the scalp. The Treatment Spray is odourless and non-greasy, meaning it won’t affect your look.
How long does delivery take?
All of our orders are first signed off by a Pharmacist and within a few days we will send a dispatch notification email, after this the order should be delivered within two days via Royal Mail.
This entire process can take up to 5 days (but it's usually much quicker)!
What is an "unlicensed" medicine?
An unlicensed medicine can be defined in several ways:
- A medicine that is formulated in an alternative version to the licensed medicine (e.g., a oral medication made into a topical liquid formulation, or a medication made in a different strength to the original licensed version).
- A medicine that has no licence at all.
- A medicine that has a licence in other countries, but not the UK.
Our Topical Spray is an unlicensed treatment that contains 7% w/v minoxidil and 0.14% w/v Finasteride which is manufactured by a fully regulated and MHRA manufacturing site. 5% topical minoxidil and 1mg oral Finasteride are both licensed for the treatment of male hair loss. Our unique formulation combines both ingredients into a topical combination containing both products and therefore it is classified as an “unlicensed” medicine.
“I’d tried gummies, shampoos, powders - the lot. The Treatment Spray is the solution for me.”
