Thinning, brittle hair, and bald spots are common signs of hair loss that can easily sneak up on you.
Gradual – or sudden – hair loss is a problem, no matter who you are. For many women, hair defines who they are and helps them feel confident every day. When this comes under threat, it’s not just vanity that’s at stake, but your self-esteem in many areas of life.
Some women prefer to let the condition run its course, untreated and on display. Others might start showing a fondness for hats or wigs. For those who want to treat the condition, however, they turn to supplements and hair loss treatments hoping to find a proven solution.
Youthful MD takes a holistic, interactive approach to your hair health, creating a solution that works for your body based on comprehensive lab work, continued interaction and guidance, and medical history to determine the best treatment plan.
Our board-certified, A4M anti-aging trained physicians and nutritionists will guide you through a complete hair loss treatment program backed by functional medicine. This program will help you reach your goals of healthy, full hair no matter your age.

I tried Youthful MD’s hair loss program and had no idea what to expect. I suffer from Alopecia, and I’ve tried many types of treatments over the years. Youthful MD has been amazing!
The YouthfulMD doctor, Dr Brandi was wonderful to work with and very knowledgeable in anti- Aging, which is refreshing. The incredible Repair Night cream that the she prescribed reduced my wrinkles!
YouthfulMD helped me with my hormone replacement therapy. The process was very easy and the doctor who I consulted with via telemedicine was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. So convenient!

At Youthful MD, our U.S.-licensed healthcare providers deliver the highest quality hair loss treatment via the latest telemedicine technology.
To start your hair loss treatment with Youthful MD, you’ll fill out some relevant medical history and information to create your account. A Youthful MD medical provider will use info about your lifestyle, current prescriptions, medical history, and symptoms to evaluate your hair loss. You’ll also be asked to upload pictures of your hair loss and a photo ID for identification verification. After reviewing your information, your Youthful MD provider will determine if telemedicine hair loss treatment is right for you, and they’ll either approve treatment or follow up with you within 24 hours.
If you qualify, a Youthful MD doctor or NP will provide you with a diagnosis and prescribe the appropriate course of treatment to help you stop hair loss—and you may even regrow hair. Your FDA-approved medication will come with a treatment plan with a detailed info about hair loss. To ensure efficacy and safety, be sure to read all information provided to you about your program.
We commonly prescribe finasteride (generic Propecia) for male-pattern hair loss (also referred to as androgenic alopecia). Finasteride helps patients maintain their hair and can, in some cases, regrow some lost hair.
We also offer minoxidil (generic Rogaine), an over-the-counter topical treatment, which slows and may even stop hair loss at the crown of the head.
Your Youthful MD doctor or NP may recommend a combination treatment plan, including both finasteride and minoxidil.
Finasteride should never be used by women or handled by pregnant women, and it is not appropriate for all men. For important safety information, click here.
Hair loss treatment can work to preserve hair and possibly even regrow hair. In one study, Finasteride was effective at stopping hair loss in 83% of men compared to 28% for the placebo group.
Finasteride is not appropriate for all men and should never be used by women or handled by pregnant women. To learn more about who should not use finasteride and the potential side effects, please see the FAQ below regarding side effects and the important safety information.
Typically, patients will begin seeing visible changes after 3 to 4 months of daily Finasteride and minoxidil use. For some patients, maximum results may take up to a year. As long as you aren’t experiencing side effects, we generally recommend continued medication for a full year before determining whether the medication is effective for you or not. As with all medications, finasteride and minoxidil will have differing levels of efficacy for different patients.
Local skin irritation is the most common side effect associated with minoxidil. With less than 2% skin absorption, systemic side effects are exceedingly rare,
As with many medications, finasteride is not safe for everyone. Clinical trials have found that less than 2% of men experienced sexual dysfunction in association with Finasteride. Finasteride has been found, in rare cases, to lower serum prostate-specific antigen and may increase the risk of some high-grade prostate cancers. If you seek hair loss treatment with Youthful MD, your YMD physician will be available to answer all questions regarding safety and side effects.
