Learn How Topical Finasteride-Minoxidil Spray Works

2-minute read

Many men with concerns regarding the condition of their hair and whether it might be lost might have heard of Finasteride and Minoxidil as the two primary treatments to combat the issues facing them.

However, there is also a combination spray comprising Finasteride and Minoxidil to offer a 2-in-1 course of treatment, but how does it work? This article will explore the Finasteride-Minoxidil Spray to discover the effects of using the formula so readers know what to expect.

Why You Should Use Finasteride-Minoxidil Spray 

You may have noticed that Minoxidil is normally supplied in topical form but Finasteride is usually prescribed to men via oral application; these are the primary ways of receiving the medications but sometimes other routes can be reserved for men who need them.

If you have suffered from negative side effects due to oral application, you will likely be suggested to use the topical spray instead. Side effects might include bloating or sexual performance changes, for instance, but these can be avoided altogether if you apply the medication topically.

Interactions with other medications you consume for other ailments will no longer be a concern for you when you take the topical combination spray, no matter how unlikely they are anyway. The treatment is also very simple to apply, simply squeeze a pump of the lotion onto your hand and rub it into the affected area twice daily.

Because it’s not always straightforward to identify the reasons behind somebody’s hair loss, other than a genetic disposition, it is deemed more effective to provide medication that harnesses the power of both Minoxidil and Finasteride for a more likely positive outcome. The reason for this is that the medications work dissimilarly and therefore target the cause of your hair loss from different angles.

How Does Finasteride-Minoxidil Spray Work?

The wonderful thing about this product is that it incorporates the qualities of both Minoxidil and Finasteride in one powerful and convenient spray. Each form of treatment increases the anagen phase of your hair cycle despite working differently.

Topical Minoxidil works by revitalising your hair follicles by increasing the levels of oxygen and blood flow your scalp’s blood vessels receive, thus widening the hair follicles so thicker and healthier strands can grow.

Oral Finasteride, however, blocks the DHT hormone from being present on your scalp. DHT is naturally converted from testosterone in the body and helps form male characteristics during development, but contributing to hair loss is one of the negative aspects of the hormone.

The full extent of the treatment will take around one year in total, assuming you use the product consistently and as directed. Don’t be disheartened if you don’t notice signs of progress as soon as you start the medication; it’s working in the background and requires patience.
