Because it reduces the conversion of androgens to DHT. Period.
yes its the only proven treatment that indirectly slows baldness, but doesnt mean its the most logical way to tackle the problem.
You have a very high chance of androgen levels dropping with age thus stopping baldness alltogether than you do whilst your on fin - finserstride changes your hormonal profile and still the body is trying to reach equilibrium (rise in AR receptors, increase in dht etc) well into old age (presuming you are still on fin of course as you age) hence your natrual hormonal profile (one without fin usuage) has been dissalllowed to natrually drop with time...instead its being held in limbo with a steady but slow rise in AR recptor/increases in dht
Hormonal profile changes with age explains why there is different patterns in mpb and why some mens baldness stops at a certain age.
Anyway dht blockers are not the future. Cox 2 blocking is a good way to prevent further balding.
