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.
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.
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.
