Minoxidil and Women Hair Loss: What are the possible Results?

Minoxidil, also known as Rogaine is a common hair loss treatment provided in generic formulations for men and women. Minoxidil is no longer a restricted hair loss treatment and that means that one can even obtain it from over the counter or any pharmacy.

The treatment is mainly used by women much as men may also use the treatment. It is directly applied to the scalp entirely to stimulate hair growth, or where hair thinning is visible to stop hair loss. A 5% solution of minoxidil is available on the market and it happens to bring viable or visible hair growth as opposed to the first minoxidil solution where inadequate results were seen for more than a year.

The exact way in which Minoxidil works is not yet fully known, but hair experts believe that the solution’s potential as a potassium channel opener is behind the treatment’s ability for hair restoration and curbing hair loss.

Topical minoxidil is best for onset hair loss that results from androgenetic alopecia and relatively small areas of hair loss in patients. The treatment works by stimulating hair growth, especially in the central areas of the scalp than in the frontal regions.

Hair restoration specialists indicate that for one to gain more results from the treatment, he or she must seek dermatology intervention to apply the treatment effectively and this could also prolong the need for a hair transplant in Delhi and as well facilitate a potential hair supply during the procedure.

Minoxidil is highly recommended for as an initial hair loss treatment due to it’s two sided effects. It stops hair loss while stimulating hair follicles to produce more hair. 35% of men and women have reported significant hair growth after 6 months of Minoxidil treatment, which is available in both tablets and a solution form.

Those with retarding hair loss, Minoxidil treatment may become a lifetime hair loss treatment in case they desire no hair transplantation. However, Minoxidil is associated with various side effects that include; irritation in the eyes, burning, itching, redness, headache, and growth of unwanted hair.

Minoxidil application for desired hair restoration will require one to apply the treatment regularly as prescribed by a physician or a dermatologist to continue restoring the hair and as well reduce the effects of the side effects.

Lifetime usage of minoxidil may seem a burden to some patients and so a hair transplant cost in India may seem manageable since it is systematically performed once and notable hair growth is assured. Minoxidil treatment can be used to maintain the rate of hair growth and as well achieve a better density after a hair transplant. This will result in more natural hair and pleasant results for several years.
