Chronostim – A Hair Loss Treatment

Monday, November 16th, 2009


Hey Doc:

My hair is as thin as the state of economy; I’m trying to figure out how to make it stronger. Two products I tried are, Chronostin, suggested by my barber; the other one was recommended to me by my psychiatrist: it’s called Minoxidil, Estradiol Vateral, Esopropyl Acohol.

I’d like to hear your expert advice on these products, doc?

Yours truly,


I commend you for seeing a skin doctor. As part of your dermatologist’s diagnosis, I’m quite certain he took a look at you to see if there was miniaturization of hair leading to hair loss in men. Let me add that combining minoxidil with other hormonal medications hasn’t been proven to be a solution to hair loss. You were probably diagnosed with male pattern baldness and then the doctor decided to recommend it. Since that’s what happened, you might also want to try finasteride, a medication much more powerful compared to Minoxidil, based on a few research publications.

The other product, Chronostim, I don’t know what that is. But, being the dedicated doctor I am, I did some of my own research on it. Chronostim is a product that says it is able to act on a group of factors playing a part in hair loss. It has both morning and nighttime treatments.

It contains sabal enriched lauric acid (seborrhea regulating ), tocopherol Nicotinate (microcirculation stimulating, oxygenating bulbar), glycyrrhetinic Acide bta (reinforces the activity of 5-alpha ductase), excipient alcohol-silicone, perfumed- hypoallergenic.

Chronostim, called NIGHT, contains a semblance of Ruscus, enriched in Neoruscine (stimulating of the VEGF), Diguanosine traphosphate (GP4G – cellular stimulant), Piroctonolamine (cleansing, anti-irritant), excipient hydro-alcoholic, perfumed-hypoallergenic.

Clear as the Los Angeles smog, right? To give it to you straight, these products haven’t been proven in any way whatsoever to aid in the treatment of men’s hair loss.

May I be so bold to say, if I were in your shoes, I’d continue taking finasteride (Propecia), if your dermatologist is okay with it. However, if you continue to experience hair loss, a hair transplant would be the best answer.

Wedding in Two Months and Still Balding!

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

wedding hair loss baldingA patient sent us an email regarding his hair loss condition. He has male patterned baldness and it is still progressing. He already met with a dermatologist and had several studies done prior to the email and was even using Chronostim for approximately 3 months. Now that he’s used up the bottles of Chronostim, he has noticed no change is his hair loss situation. He wants to have a full head of hair and does not want to take hair loss medication for the rest of his life. Before we forget, his wedding is in 2 months.

Chronostim has not been clinically proven to correct or prevent male patterned baldness or any other form of hair loss. It should not be considered a replacement option for medications that have been both proven effective and FDA approved safe for consumption like Propecia (finasteride) DHT blocker.

We highly suggest that all patients experiencing any form of hair loss to be seen by a good hair transplant surgeon and have a miniaturization study done. If the condition is in fact male patterned baldness or androgenetic alopecia, finasteride should be a part of your everyday hair loss treatment plan.

Hair restoration surgery can restore the areas damaged by hair loss by transplanting healthy permanent hair from the donor. In this situation, however, neither of the aforementioned will make enough of a visible difference for the day of your wedding. These procedures take time to show their fullest effect. There are cosmetic options available like Toppik that can cover the balding or thinning areas of your hair through the use of microfibers. If anything, you can use that product for the wedding day while you either consider a hair transplant surgery or at least try using Propecia (finasteride) so that you may see true results a few months after your wedding.
