Functioning of Finasteride is simple enough. Proper functioning of Propecia takes around one year. That means from hair loss reduction to hair growth all this happens in a time period of a year. Patience is very much needed and men should persistently take this drug for at least one year to see the desired effects. Results may start showing in few months time but entire process will take approx one year. At the end results will be seen for sure.
After taking Proscar for continuous three months you can see an evidence of stoppage of hair loss. In the time period of 3 to 6 months little hair growth will be detected in the vertex region. By this time hair loss will be completely stopped. Another 6 to 12 months is the phase when the enlargement on the prior mid-scalp region and vertex region is noted. In the end the noticeable hair growth is initiated on the bald regions. This way Alopecia works.
