What is Minoxidil?

Minoxidil is a topical solution for your hair loss problems. It’s been approved by FDA to treat hair loss and even helps in regrowth of hair. Medically it is said to be an antihypertensive vasodilator medication to hair loss problems. Under proper observation of an expert doctor, with the use of minoxidil, you can put an end to your hair loss problems and can even see new hair growth.

At YV Rao clinic we are using minoxidil which helps in regrowth of hair and it is the only counter medication for hair approved by FDA to treat hair loss. It can be used by both men and women.

Precautions To Use Minoxidil

It is recommended that the medicine is used under proper guidance from expert doctors only. When you apply it, it is absorbed by the skin. So, don’t use it more often other than your doctor ordered. It is important to note that minoxidil should not apply to other parts of the body. If it is absorbed by your body it may cause unwanted effects to your blood vessels and sometimes heart.

It is mandated not to use any other skin products in the same area on which minoxidil is used. Hair colouring, hair permanents, and hair relaxers might be used while minoxidil therapy with specific guidance of your doctor. Your scalp should be washed thoroughly before using hair colours, hair relaxers other hair products. Don’t use minoxidil before and after 24hrs of any other hair treatment procedure.

Minoxidil is available as Rogaine or Theroxidil and in two forms as minoxidil solution and as well as foam.

  • It monitors the proper flow of blood to the hair follicles and it helps in increasing the size of follicles and hair shaft diameter. It stimulates a prolong hair growth.

    Does Minoxidil Have Side Effects?

    Some people experience unusual hair fall when they start using minoxidil. It doesn't mean that you are losing hair permanently. After using minoxidil, hair follicles go through the growth process and enter into the anagen phase where old hairs fall out in large numbers and new hair follicles start to grow. You may come across some side effects which can be treated by proper medical attention.
