Regaine Extra Strength Solution FAQs
This is not necessarily the case; your hair loss may prove to be less, the same or even more than other family members.
In 95% of cases, male pattern baldness is hereditary but there are some rare occasions where hair loss can be caused by other things such as a medical condition, prescribed medication so chemotherapy treatment for certain cancers, poor nutrition, bad hair care techniques or severe stress. REGAINE is not suitable for other non-hereditary types of alopecia and you should discuss alternative treatments with your GP.
The earlier you start using REGAINE the greater your chances of seeing results; REGAINE works best in the early stages of hereditary hair loss. When used twice daily, you can expect results after just sixteen weeks. But REGAINE will not work for everyone and it is not possible to ascertain who will be the successful users other than the general principle that the sooner you start using it the better, so it is less effective for men who have been experiencing hair loss for a number of years or who have a large area of baldness.
Minoxidil increases blood flow thereby promoting hair growth by reversing the miniaturisation of the follicles, increasing blood supply around the follicles, stimulating follicle movement from the resting to active hair growth phase and finally, by extending each follicle's growth phase. It was initially discovered as a medicine in tablet form to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and it was noticed that those patients being treated with Minoxidil experienced excessive hair growth. Further research led to the development of a solution of Minoxidil which can be applied directly to the scalp.
If you hair growth is stimulated, you will need to keep using REGAINE twice a day for the growth to continue. Regrown hair may disappear three to four months after you stop using REGAINE and the balding process will then continue. Do be aware that in the early stages of use, you may notice a temporary increase in hair loss in the first two to six weeks; this is part of the hair's natural cycle and rather than being something to worry about, it is actually a promising sign. It shows that the hair is transitioning from the rest phase of the cycle to the growing phase.
