Minoxidil is an FDA-approved topical solution that has been demonstrated to be a highly effective means of slowing hair loss related to male pattern baldness. It increases the growth cycle of hair follicles, improving the quality, length, and thickness of hair. This over-the-counter medication was a break-through in the medical hair restoration field, and is especially effective during the early stages of hair loss.
Be Proactive Against DHT
DHT is the primary culprit in male pattern baldness, the most common cause of hair loss in men. A genetic disposition causes testosterone to convert into DHT, which attaches itself to hair follicles, eventually suffocating them, causing them to die and creating baldness. Minoxidil works to prevent this by increasing blood flow to the follicles, which improves nutrition and counteracting the effects of DHT. Its ability to slow the rate of hair-loss has been well-documented. It is particularly effective during the first years of use and on the follicles located on the crown of the head.
