View Full Version : Kanolone(triamcinolone)

03-01-2012, 06:48 AM

I often visit my dermatologist for my regular acne treatment.
I asked my doctor if she has solution for hair loss.
She mentioned that they are using a stimulant/booster injection to help regrow hair.

I found out that the drug she's using is KANOLONE (Triamcinolone acetonide) .
This is the same drug used for acne treatment.

I haven't find any article saying Kanolone can regrow hair.

Any one familiar?

It is a Corticosteroid. I have heard of it being used to jump start hair regrowth in Alopecia Areata but not Androgentic Alopecia (MPB).

Hi Dr. Glen.

Would you know how effective it is?

I do not think it will be very effective in treating male pattern baldness.

Maybe I should stop this.

I'm left with Min and Fins....whoo.... :confused:
