Minoxidil for male hair loss: an introduction

Minoxidil is a lotion that is used as a treatment for male hair loss. Also known as Male Pattern Baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia.

Minoxidil is 1 out of the only 2 treatments approved by the NHS England for treating male hair loss. The other one is finasteride.

Minoxidil-based products are applied as a liquid or foam to the scalp. They work by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles, stimulating hair growth. Minoxidil products are available without a prescription and come in liquid or foam form, containing either a 5% or 2% concentration.

It’s important to note that minoxidil does not stop hair loss. Instead, its primary function is to improve hair growth and hair thickness. Men who want to stop hair loss should instead opt for Finasteride, a prescription medication that stops hair loss completely in more than 80% men.

Both Minoxidil and Finasteride are online available through MENSCRIPT, an online health clinic for men. They offer online consultations and personal treatmentplans for men living in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
