FAQs

  • Minoxidil increases blood flow and oxygen to the vessels which reactivates and revitalises shrunken hair follicles. This helps to increase the size and density of the hair follicle.

  • Minoxidil is suitable for all men aged 18 or older suffering from hair loss

  • Clinical data has demonstrated that Minoxidil is safe and effective when used as a hair regrowth product of the vertex in the treatment of hair loss. Sons recommendation to use 5% Minoxidil is based on clinical data. A 48 week study  by Olsen et al highlighted that 5% topical minoxidil was significantly superior to 2% topical minoxidil. Additionally, data from a patient questionnaire  showed improvements on quality of life, hair growth, and hair styling.

  • You should see improvements such as reduced hair loss or hair regrowth after 3-6 months. Optimal clinical improvements appear after one to two years of consistent treatment.

  • Clinical evidence shows that Minoxidil is an effective treatment alone but in combination with Minoxidil is when optimal results are observed 

  • There is nothing to worry about but in order to get best results you should continue take as per your instructions.

  • Apply 1 ml of the cutaneous solutions directly onto the scalp up to twice daily (once in the morning and once at night), using the pump provided. Make sure that the scalp is dry or towel-dry before applying.

  • There are limited side effects with minoxidil but some patients may experience mild scalp irritation. If you experience any side effects you should stop taking the medication. A complete list of side effects can be found in the  Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) enclosed with your medication, which you should always read before taking it for the first time. Please report any adverse events to https://yellowcard.mhra.gov.uk/.

  •   Propylene glycol (PEG) is an agent that commonly causes irritation and occasionally causes an allergic contact dermatitis. Our minoxidil is PEG free to reduce the risk of such irritation for our patients.

  • No but we do recommend that all patients take photos of their hair prior to start treatment and at key timepoints such as 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months so you can track your progress.
