Treatment available: Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia are the two medications in the U.S. For treatment of baldness, mainly male-pattern baldness. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate and start treatment. Results vary from person to person, but one's "appearance" is usually improved. There is no cure for baldness, so the medications must be continued for the benefit to continue.
