Proven Ingredients That Perform
Custom Prescription Hair Loss Treatments
Our portfolio of regrowth treatments draws from both lab science and Mother Nature to deliver phenomenal results. In addition to the FDA-approved treatments minoxidil and finasteride, our offerings include our famous shampoo, conditioner, and other signature formulas that put Shapiro MD on the map.
These unique, science-backed formulas contain our signature triple-action blend of green tea, saw palmetto berry, and caffeine extracts. In studies, these botanicals have been shown to fight the effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that triggers hair loss. Our experts will help you discover which combination of formulas is best for you.
The Story of Shapiro MD™
Shapiro MD’s flagship hair loss solutions stemmed from a need.
Two decades ago, men and women suffering from hair loss had few compelling solutions. Shapiro MD™ Cofounders Dr. Michael Borenstein and Dr. Steven Shapiro needed something easy, natural, and safe for their patients who weren’t ready for more aggressive and invasive interventions like surgery.
After five years of research and testing, the two doctors began piloting their first formulations, a combination of naturally sourced ingredients selected for their capabilities in fighting hair loss. They were a hit, and Shapiro MD has continued helping patients fight hair loss and thinning ever since. Today, our offerings still include the same patented, simple, and natural formulations, but telemedicine has opened up new frontiers for men and women suffering from hair loss. Our limits today are boundless.
Frustrated with the results and limited options for their hair loss patients, Drs. Borenstein and Shapiro begin seeking potent new, natural solutions.
Research into naturally-sourced DHT-blocking ingredients begins, testing formulations with a variety of ingredient blends.
With promising formulations in hand, they begin piloting these natural alternatives with their private practice patients. They're a big hit.
Recognizing that their clinics can only serve so many patients, Shapiro MD is born to take these formulations online.
As mobile capabilities and virtual health acceptance grow, Shapiro MD begins offering FDA-approved minoxidil for eligible patients.
Full-suite telehealth platform launches to help patients get direct physician access and more precise guidance.
Shapiro MD begins offering custom compound treatments piloted in private practice with high patient success.
Still innovating and improving, every day.
