Finasteride is a 5α-reductase inhibitor that works by decreasing the production of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in tissues in the scalp. It has been approved as a treatment for hair loss in the US since 1997. 

Formula 82F, or "Finoxidil", contains (5%) Minoxidil and (.25%) Finasteride along with a topical steroid to improve efficacy and reduce irritation, complimented by other proprietary ingredients that improve the formula's overall effectiveness, stability and usability.

Note: Finasteride is not approved for hair loss in women and is available by prescription for men only. See Formula 82M (Minoxidil-based) for women.

Increased Efficacy With Minoxidil And Finasteride

"Based on the success of Finasteride (Propecia®) in stopping hair loss and regrowing hair, many patients have asked if topical Finasteride is a viable hair growth treatment. They also want to know if a topical Finasteride treatment would have a lower risk of side effects.  At Bauman Medical, we’ve watched the research on topical Finasteride in the medical literature which supports the efficacy and relative safety of topical Finasteride preparations. Now available for patients by prescription, is compounded Formula 82F, 'Finoxidil', which contains both topical Finasteride and topical minoxidil in a powerful yet 'palatable' sophisticated mixture for the scalp to improve hair growth. Patients report it is a quick drying, less greasy, less sticky and more powerful alternative to over-the-counter hair growth treatments like Rogaine®.
