with SiloxysSystem™ Gel
A potent 5-alpha reductase inhibitor that reduces levels of DHT at the scalp, the leading cause of male pattern baldness.
By blocking an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT (a hormone known to negatively impact hair growth and health), dutasteride can help keep hair follicles productive.
Dutasteride has been clinically shown to assist in restoring hair growth over a period of just a few months. Experience the potency and efficacy for yourself.
Developed to maximize efficacy and minimize risks, SiloxysSystem™ gel enables targeted delivery of active ingredients like dutasteride, without compromising your safety.
The gel forms a mesh-like layer across the top of the skin that slowly deposits medication over time.
Specially formulated liposomes carry medications to the layer of skin where hair follicles are located. And that’s where medications stay.
By combining controlled release with precision delivery, less medication makes its way to the bloodstream.
Restore your hair in 3 easy steps:
Complete a quick and secure virtual intake.
A dermatologist will review your case.

Frequently asked questions about Topical Dutasteride with SiloxysSystem™ Gel
Using topical dutasteride to treat male pattern baldness can take several months before the patient sees noticeable results. Topical dutasteride is applied directly to the scalp, where it blocks dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is responsible for hair loss in men.
Men need to be patient and maintain the regular topical application of dutasteride for their treatment period to maximize results. Some men may find that it takes longer than six months to start seeing the effects of topical dutasteride. This timeframe can vary depending on individual factors such as age, genetics, and coexisting medical conditions.
SiloxysSystem™ Gel is a delivery system designed to maximize the efficacy of hair loss medications and minimize the risks of potential side effects. The proprietary gel matrix is based on hypoallergenic silicone, which helps maintain a concentration gradient across the skin. This concentration gradient impacts the direction and rate of movement of a medication into the skin. It is responsible for the controlled and gradual release of hair loss medications such as finasteride and dutasteride.
This controlled release ensures maximum effectiveness, with the potential for better results than traditional methods of hair loss treatment. The technology is also designed to help reduce the amount of medication that is absorbed into the body.
Topical dutasteride works by inhibiting the activity of type 1 and 2 isozymes of the 5 alpha-reductase enzyme. This blocks the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which has been linked to male pattern baldness and female pattern hair loss. Topical Dutasteride with SiloxysSystem™ Gel can treat receding hairline, patchy hair loss, and bald spots.
The treatment may help slow down or even stop further hair loss. It also helps promote the regrowth of existing hairs.
Topical dutasteride application has advantages over oral delivery methods such as capsules or tablets. Studies have shown that topical dutasteride may have fewer systemic side effects because medications delivered this way do not enter the bloodstream as readily as oral medications do. In this way, topical dutasteride may be a safer and effective option for treating male pattern baldness in some patients.
The side effect profile of topical dutasteride is similar to the side effect profile for topical finasteride. Adverse effects are typically less common with topical formulations than the oral version of the medication.
The side effects of oral dutasteride include: erectile dysfunction, decreased libido (sex drive), ejaculatory disorders and breast swelling and/or tenderness. Topical forms of the medication may help reduce these side effects by limiting absorption of the medication into the body.
In studies, topical dutasteride was more effective than placebo in promoting hair growth and slowing down hair loss. Side effects were primarily mild, and included irritation near the site of application.
Topical dutasteride appears to be a safe and effective option for treating male pattern baldness. But there may be risks if certain medical conditions are present. Talk to your dermatologist before starting topical dutasteride treatment.

When using topical dutasteride with other hair loss medications, discussing potential drug interactions with your dermatologist is essential. Topical dutasteride is generally considered safe when used alongside topical minoxidil or finasteride. It may interact with certain hormones or drugs and cause adverse reactions.
Compounded hair loss medications are customized topical treatments prepared by a pharmacist specifically for an individual patient. Compounding allows the pharmacist to combine active ingredients into a topical medium, which can then be applied directly to the scalp. Compounding allows for more personalized treatments as it considers medical history, lifestyle, age, and other factors.
Compounded hair loss medications may contain finasteride or dutasteride. These medications help reduce dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the hormone responsible for male pattern baldness. They may be a good option for patients who are concerned about side effects associated with oral medications. However, you should be aware that compounded treatments require a doctor’s prescription. You will need to consult with a doctor to determine if such a treatment is right for you.
Topical Dutasteride with SiloxysSystem™ Gel can treat hair loss issues such as a receding hairline and bald spots that are the result of male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). We recommend consulting a dermatologist sooner, rather than later to to increase your chances of regrowth through medical interventions such as topical treatments or oral medication. Early intervention is essential for the best results, as permanent hair loss may occur if left untreated.
Individuals lose hair for various reasons, and treatment options depend on the type of hair loss. Patients experiencing traction alopecia, scarring alopecia, or telogen effluvium should consult a dermatologist to determine their best treatment options. Topical Dutasteride with SiloxysSystem™ Gel does not treat these hair loss conditions.
