How REGAINE® (Minoxidil) promotes hair re-growth

REGAINE® works best in men with hair loss or thinning at the top of the scalp. Those who are younger, have been losing hair for a short period of time or have a small area of baldness are likely to experience the best results.2

REGAINE® promotes hair growth by lengthening the anagen phase and increasing follicular size and hair shaft diameter5,6.

Topical Minoxidil is the only substance recommended for treatment of hair loss in both men and women7.

Minoxidil is the only substance licensed for treating androgenetic alopecia for women7.

The majority of patients have a positive beneficial response through reversal of hair follicle miniaturisation8.
