Drug information of solution / Minoxidil foam

Male pattern baldness is a type of hair loss that spreads to many men at some stage. For some men, this natural aging process may cause discomfort, especially if it is excessive or occurs early in life. Minoxidil solution / foam for hair loss can help prevent hair loss and male pattern baldness. This condition is sometimes called androgenic alopecia, which is caused by a combination of hereditary (genetic) and hormonal factors. In some women, a similar type of hereditary hair loss occurs, starting gradually from the top of the head. This type of hair loss is common in postmenopausal women and can be uncomfortable.

Hair is made up of hair follicles and usually grows from each hair follicle for about 3 years and then sheds and new hair grows from the follicles. As the baldness spreads, the hair follicles gradually become smaller than normal; As a result, each new hair that grows grows thinner and sheds faster than before. Eventually the hair follicles become very small over time and produce thin hair that does not reach the surface of the skin.
