Classification and Mechanism of Action
Finax belongs to a class of drugs that are known as type II 5̴�-reductase inhibitors. More precisely, Finax does its work by blocking an enzyme that is needed for the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone in the scalp, which is the process that causes the hair loss in men. By blocking this enzyme, DHT is not allowed to form and this helps the hair follicles heal and subsequently even new follicles to appear and cause new hair to grow.
