Minoxidil exists in both topical (hair spray) and oral form.
It can be used to treat hair loss in both male and females. Both forms (topical and oral) can be used concurrently.
Originally, Minoxidil was used as a blood pressure lowering medication. However, it was incidentally found to stimulate hair growth by increasing blood flow to the scalp and thereby delivering more nutrients to the hair roots.
Ever since the discovery, Minoxidil has been commonly used as one of the most popular treatment options for hair loss.
Minoxidil should be applied and / or taken for at least 6 months for the best results.
Some individuals may experience scalp irritation when using topical Minoxidil.
Finasteride is another commonly used active ingredient for the treatment of male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss in post-menopausal ladies.
It also exists in both topical (hair spray) and oral form.
Finasteride works by blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT. High levels of DHT are associated with increased male pattern hair loss.
Over time, the hair loss process will be slowed, and hair regrowth is stimulated.
Like Minoxidil, Finasteride should be taken for at least 6 months.
Rare side effects include loss of libido, sexual dysfunction, and gynecomastia in men. These side effects are temporary and will improve once the medication is stopped.
For suitable patients, Dr Edwin recommends the combination treatment of Minoxidil and Finasteride which may produce better results when compared to using them individually.
