Benefits of Minoxidil
It is one of the most widely used medications and is proved to give excellent results in baldness. It works best if used in the initial period of hair loss. During this period of time, minoxidil helps in converting the existing telogen phase (resting period) hairs to anagen phase (growth period) hairs. This medication works well for pattern baldness for men and women, and androgenetic alopecia patients.
If you are wondering, ‘Can I use minoxidil or rogaine for frontal hair loss?’, then let me tell you. Minoxidil will only work if there are hairs roots present in your scalp. On a bald area, this medication will be of no use. If there are no roots on the scalp or there is complete baldness, then minoxidil will not be able to convert the hairs into the telogen phase. Another important fact is that Minoxidil works best when applied with Finasteride.
I hope I have cleared all your doubts about minoxidil. It will not be beneficial for a bald area in the scalp. Do not use minoxidil or rogaine without a doctor’s prescription, speak to your dermatologist to understand the dosage that’s right for you.
