What is topical finasteride?
Topical applications of finasteride are quickly becoming a popular alternative to the oral finasteride pill. Clinical data shows that it can be just as effective at treating male pattern hair loss while potentially exhibiting fewer side effects, many of which are sexual in nature. Topical finasteride must be applied consistently for patients to reap the full benefits of this drug.
What is Topical Finasteride, with SiloxysSystem™ Gel and how does it work?
Topical Finasteride with SiloxysSystem™ Gel was developed by Dr. Victor Hasson (Dr. Hasson is a founder and a shareholder of Xyon Health ) with patient safety and wellness in mind. The SiloxysSystem™ Gel technology combines clinically proven finasteride with a proprietary silicone base for easy and targeted application directly to the regions of the scalp that are affected by hair loss.
Each component of SiloxysSystem™ addresses key challenges facing topical treatments. The nanoparticle technology enhances penetration of finasteride across the outermost layer of the scalp skin. Two types of lab-synthesized silicone create a mesh-like matrix across the scalp that helps regulate the rate of absorption of the drug. These gel components work to optimize finasteride uptake by hair follicles while reducing the amount of drug that passively enters the bloodstream.

Topical SiloxysSystem™ targets the scalp
The sexual side effects associated with finasteride are thought to result from widespread, systemic drug action.

SiloxysSystem™ Gel delays the penetration of finasteride into the skin, releasing it into the body at a reduced rate. Topical Finasteride, with SiloxysSystem™ Gel can safely contain a higher concentration of finasteride, up to 2.5%, aiming to provide maximum results with minimal risks of side effects.
