Hair loss and its treatments,
Hair loss can be a devastating reminder of the
aging process. Luckily there are now dozens of
effective treatments, including minoxidil, one can
utilize to reverse the loss of one's hair. Many
doctors prescribe Rogaine for severe hair loss.
The active ingredient in this topical drug is
minoxidil. Rogaine usually shows results after
about four months of treatment (applying the drug
at least twice a day to bald areas).
Hair loss has no cure, even with
the use of minoxidil
Hair loss cannot be reversed completely, no matter
how much medicine you take. Minoxidil will often
not show strong results on the very old, those
with larger areas of baldness, or those who have
been bald for a longer period of time.
Keep in mind that this medicine is a treatment and
not a cure for hair loss. Many men and women with
thinning hair report hair regrowth with minoxidil,
but about 16% of them report no change at all.
Hair loss was not the first use for minoxidil ö
high blood pressure was. When patients began to
notice increased hair growth after using the drug,
doctors began experimenting with its topical
usage. There are many theories for why the drug
stimulates hair growth but none of them are
definitive. It has been proven effective, however,
and the drug was actually the first approved by
the FDA to combat thinning and baldness.
