Is 12.5% Minoxidil Worth It?

According to RegrowHair.com, Minoxidil is a “tried and true” hair loss medication that’s been proven quite effective in preventing and reversing progressive balding. There is no cure for male pattern baldness, but its progression can be slowed in some men using Minoxidil.

Minoxidil appears to work by widening the hair follicle, causing a thicker strand of hair, and by prolonging the anagen stage of hair growth which results in longer and a higher number of hair strands. The exact physiological basis for these effects remains unknown, but it has been shown to be safe and effective when used properly. According to “Fitzpatrick’s Dermatology in General Medicine,” studies have shown that “up to 60 percent of men show improvement in vertex balding…with a mean increase in hair density of 10 percent to 12 percent.”

Currently, the FDA has only approved two formulas, 2% and 5%, for over the counter purchase. Both strengths are applied to a dry scalp twice a day.

If you’re looking for 12.5% Minoxidil visit Dr. Robert Jones at his hair transplant clinic in Oakville.

The formula available at his practice is applied only once a day.
