What is best solution for hair regrowth & does Minoxidil helps in hair regrowth


Before answering this question we have to assess what is the cause of hair loss? then and then only I can suggest you the best probable solution for that cause.

But for the time being, we will consider the most common cause of hair loss in male i.e. androgenetic or pattern hair loss.

For the pattern hair loss, most gold standard treatment is topical minoxidil and oral Finasteride. and yes minoxidil works for regrowth in hair loss here is the video answer by me on that


Minoxidil does work for hair loss, as it increases blood flow to the hair follicle and increases the thickness of the follicle, delays maturing phase (i.e. catagen phase of hair) so decrease the hair loss. It was originally invented for the high blood pressure treatment by acting as a vasodilator, which eventually found out that it causes excessive hair growth as a side effect so they started using it in hair loss.

You can read the interesting story about the evolution of minoxidil as hair growth on Wikipedia.


There are 2 formulations of minoxidil which are FDA approved as 5% and 3% in alcohol and foam base solutions.

Please make a note that it is observed that only topical minoxidil doesn’t work you will have to couple it with oral finasteride. Along with this mainstay treatment, we will have to take other evidence-based therapies also like PRP, Mesotherapy, Low-level laser light therapy, derma roller. We at HairMD have developed a special & successful therapy using these treatment modalities named cocktail management of hair loss & regrowth.

Male Hair Loss

There are many reasons for hair loss in male ranging from genetics or family history of hair loss, daily or work life stress etc. Hair loss may be genetic or non-genetic. The following section briefs you about few top causes of hair loss and treatment for it.

The most important type of hair loss in males is male pattern baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia. Almost 70% to 80 % of males suffer from male pattern baldness. The main causes of hair loss in men are usually changing in eating habits or crash dieting, change in environment or stress induced due to work or personal reasons. HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, provides our patients with proven hair loss treatment which are based on 28+ years of successful clinical experience Dr Dhananjay Chavan, MBBS, DDV & proven medical research. The mainstay of treatment for male pattern hair loss is finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride blocks the hormones i.e. 5 alpha reductase in the body which are responsible for hair loss. Minoxidil increases blood flow to the scalp and promotes hair growth in bald patches or spots. Apart from finasteride and minoxidil various procedures like platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro-needling (derma roller), low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) are some of the ways to treat hair loss.

In PRP for hair loss, concentrated growth factors are extracted from the blood of the patient and then transferred back to the scalp of the patient. In micro-needling (derma roller for hair loss treatment) thousands of micro punctures are created in patient’s scalp with the help of derma roller. These micro punctures result in the release of intrinsic growth factors at that site stimulate hair growth.

In low-level laser light therapy (LLLT), light from a cold laser (red laser waves) is delivered to the hair, this laser light stimulates the hair follicles for faster growth. This treatment is US FDA approved for hair loss problem. In mesotherapy growth peptides, plane stem cell extract and various other growth factors are delivered locally to our hair. All these treatment procedures along with medicine are responsible for the great results. We are able to give to our patients suffering from hair loss.
