Minoxidil is medication used to stimulate hair follicles to produce thicker, healthier hair production, while lengthening the growth phase of the follicle. Minoxidil was initially approved for use as a blood pressure medicine to widen the arteries and reduce pressure.

Later a different formula was approved to trigger hair growth. Specialized formulations were subsequently developed and FDA-approved to help people retain thicker, healthier hair with the best results in Minoxidil Pittsburgh has to offer.

How Does Minoxidil Work?

Minoxidil has a dramatic effect on hair growth, believed to be due to a widening of the hair follicles so they produce thicker, healthier hairs. One of the mysteries of minoxidil is that it is not completely understood how it achieves this remarkable effect, but it does. While minoxidil is effective, it must be applied carefully and correctly to avoid side effects.

How to Use Minoxidil

The medication is applied to the scalp, typically twice a day. It will require from six months up to two years to see results, and it must be continued, or the increased hair production will cease. Are you concerned about hair loss? Our Minoxidil in Pennsylvania may or may not be the optimal treatment for your case; seek help from our professionals at the Center for Hair Restoration in Pittsburgh, where we offer the full range of state-of-the-art hair restoration treatments, including minoxidil as part of your comprehensive treatment.

Is Minoxidil The Answer for your Hair Loss?

Hair loss can come about as a result of many contributing factors, including:

  • Heredity
  • The use of certain medications and/or supplements
  • Stress
  • Health conditions and diseases

If you are noticing significant thinning, the first step is to determine the cause of your hair loss. Surprisingly, several “healthy” supplements can actually lead to more hair loss. Dr. Heil will determine the factors contributing you to your case of hair loss and establish the most successful treatment.

This treatment may include the use of Minoxidil or could include several treatments – only a personal consultation will reveal the best way to move forward towards a healthier, thicker head of hair.
