Minoxal Forte 5% 60 ml
Minoxal Forte is used for people with hereditary hair loss, also known as male-pattern hair loss (MPHL) and female-pattern hair loss (FPHL).
Classic male baldness begins above the temples and vertex, or calvaria, of the scalp. As it progresses, a rim of hair at the sides and rear of the head remains. MPHL occurs due to a combination of genetics and the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Female-pattern hair loss more often causes diffuse thinning without hairline recession; similar to its male counterpart, female androgenetic alopecia (AGA) rarely leads to total hair loss. FPHL is commonly caused by aging, genetic or changes in the levels of androgens (male hormones). For instance, after reaching menopause, many women find that the hair on their head is thinner, while the hair on their face is coarser.
Minoxal Forte active ingredient Minoxidil – is an antihypertensive vasodilator (trichogenic agent), which slows down hair loss and produces hair growth in some users. Minoxidil acts by relaxing blood vessels and opening potassium channels, thus, allowing more oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the follicles. This reduces the duration of the follicle resting phase (telogen), which is followed then by the anagen phase (active phase of growth).
You will experience an increase in hair loss during the first 2 weeks of Minoxal Forte 5% use. This is temporary and expected, and is a sign that old hairs are being shed as new ones start to grow.
Remember, that Minoxal Forte is less effective when there is a large area of hair loss. Its effectiveness is more noticeable in younger men who have experienced hair loss for less than 5 years. Minoxal Forte solution is for topical use only. Avoid getting solution in your eyes, nose, or mouth. If you get minoxidil solution in your eyes, wash them out with cool tap water. Do not use on scalp that is irritated or sunburned.
Wash your scalp with a mild shampoo. Your hair and scalp must be dry before applying Minoxal Forte. Make sure you use 1 ml of Minoxal Forte per application, not more than twice daily. To apply solution on the scalp areas, use a special dropper. Apply the liquid onto different areas of the front and top of the scalp. Wash your hands after applying Minoxal Forte. Allow the solution to remain on the scalp for at least 4 hours before washing. Wait approximately 4 hours after application before going swimming, and do not allow your scalp to get wet from the rain after applying the solution. The night-time application should be done 2-4 hours before going to bed to allow the solution to dry out. Wait until the solution is dry before using other hair care products. A hair dryer should not be used to speed up the drying of the solution as it may decrease the effectiveness.
It may take several months before the improvement appears. If you do not see improvement after 4 months, check with your doctor. Temporary hair loss may continue and increase for up to 2 weeks after you start using Minoxal Forte. More frequent use or longer application time have no effect on the hair growth. In case of missing any daily applications of Minoxal Forte, the patient should continue with the next application.
Minoxal Forte should not be used more than two times a day, or be taken orally or applied to any other part of the body to avoid the risk of adverse effects and unwanted hair growth. The total daily application dose should not exceed 2 ml.
Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) and away from excess moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.
