Hair Loss Treatment With Minoxidil

Minoxidil is one of the best hair loss remedies with proven results against hair thinning. Treatment of hair loss with minoxidil is achieved by inducing vasodilation and increasing blood flow to the scalp and has been used in men and women safely worldwide for the past 20 years. Approved by the National Drug Administration (NDA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), minoxidil is used in the form of lotion in concentrations of 2% and 5% once or twice daily and has very good results in both male and female androgenetic alopecia and other forms of alopecia.

Apart from androgenetic alopecia, treatment of hair loss with minoxidil is also possible in other forms of hair loss such as normal seasonal, telogen, endocrine and hormonal disorders, as well as pollen alopecia. Minoxidil is an essential hair loss treatment before and after hair implantation, either by FUE, FUT or Strip, to maximize the result.

In addition, after hair transplantation, minoxidil plays a very important role in the maintenance of existing hair in the recipient area and in avoiding the phenomenon of shock loss.

The efficacy of minoxidil is achieved by inducing vasodilation and increasing blood flow to the scalp, thus activating and prolonging the anagen phase of the hair. After 2-3 months of treatment, the rate of hair loss is significantly reduced, while the regrowth of some hairs that have recently entered the telogen phase is observed.

The treatment of hair loss with minoxidil, according to many scientific studies, has been shown to be effective in more than 90-95% of patients using it. This refers to approximately 60-65% of patients who observed hair growth and reduction of the bald part of the head and approximately 35-40% of patients who observed stabilization of the bald area and reduction of hair loss.


Highly effective treatment for men and women

Younger patients, as well as those in the early stages of hair thinning, who start treatment with minoxidil seem to show better results than older patients with established baldness for several years.

In recent years it has become increasingly common to combine chronic treatment with minoxidil 5% and the use of autologous hair mesotherapy for the treatment of hair loss.
