how does Minoxidil work

If you find yourself asking, “How does Minoxidil work?” then you’re certainly not the first person to wonder.

Otherwise known by its brand name Regaine®, we offer this topical hair loss formula to a number of our clients. It is typically used to reduce the appearance of genetic pattern baldness.

Minoxidil must be applied directly to the scalp either once or twice a day. It works by increasing the size of hair follicles and encouraging the hair cycle to remain in the growth phase for longer. Best results come in the form of thicker, fuller hair with around two-thirds of patients seeing positive effects.

It is far more effective when tackling hair that is mid-loss as opposed to fully bald areas. That is why it’s so important to catch the condition early and look out for the signs. For more information on pattern baldness and the treatments available, contact our team.
