Tricomin, a copper-peptide complex designed for topical application, was tested in 18 male patients with type V (according to J. Hamilton) of normal alopecia. Twice a day for 6 months, 2% and 10% gel were applied to the areas of baldness. In patients who used 10% gel with tricomin, more active hair growth was noted. The mechanism of action of the drug is not deciphered, there are no side effects. It has been suggested that copper stimulates the synthesis of extracellular matrix components, thereby contributing to the prolongation of the growth phase. As you know, the hair in the growth phase is in close contact with the components of the matrix, and during the rest phase, the extracellular metric is gradually disappearing. It is also known that one of the manifestations of chronic copper deficiency (Menckel's disease) is the thinning of the hair.

Trichostim (French pharmacological company "Pierre Fabre"). The drug contains an aqueous (zinc sulfate, vitamin complex, amino acid complex) and oily (extract of Sabal, tonic essential oils, vitamin complex) phase. Extract from palm fruits Sabal, by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase and blocking the receptors for dihydrotestosterone, prevents the androgen's action on androgen-dependent follicles. The drug also activates microcirculation in hair follicles, enriches the roots of hair with nutrients and vitamins, significantly reducing the number of hair falling out. Restoring already lost hair is estimated as not so significant.

The preparation contains the main active phase (6% RTH 16 - a patented plant molecule in 40% alcohol solution) and an additional phase (sabal extract, the main extract of pine in the composition of a neutral excipient). The lotion stimulates the growth factors of the vessels, restoring and developing the vascular network around the hair follicles, affects the activity of androgenconverting hormones.

Anastymum is applied 3 times a week. 1 bottle is enough for 3 months of treatment. Shake the bottle before mixing to mix the phases. Distribute 10 doses of lotion (10 pump strokes) along the prophores, massage the skin until the composition is completely penetrated.

Satura-rosta (OOO "Proniko", Russia). Biomass from seaweed; shows significant anti-androgenic activity, and also affects follicles, which are, in all probability, in a "rudimentary" state and do not have androgen receptors.
