Does Alpicort F Really Work to Stop and Regrow Hair?

Alpicort F Solution Name: Nouf

Question: I was wondering what your experience with alpicort f solution is. Does it really work to stop and regrow hair? How long do you use it to see the effects? Are there any side effects? Thanks.

Answer: Alpicort F is not a licensed treatment for hair loss. It is a topically applied product that consists of 5mg estradiol benzoate, 0.2g prednisolone and 0.4g salicylic acid in 100mL of solution, but we do not have any experience with Alpicort F as the Belgravia Centre specialises in medically approved, clinically proven products that are licensed for the treatment of hair loss.

Alpicort F has not been through the appropriate methods of testing for us to be able to comment on its effectiveness in stopping hair loss or promoting regrowth. Side effects associated with its main ingredients include weight gain, rash, increased appetite, indigestion and dry, peeling, red, or scaling skin. However, without any clinical trials, we cannot safely caution about the likelihood of these or other possible side effects when combined and administered in this dose.

Here’s some very useful information for anybody without expert knowledge on hair loss treatments, to know how to spot which ones you can be sure are likely to work, and which ones may not be so effective. As long as you take note of this short guide, there’s not much more you’ll need to know to ensure the best chance of hair loss prevention – HAIR LOSS TREATMENT GUIDE.

Belgravia’s hair loss experts always advise treatment courses based around the medically licensed products for hair loss which are the only ones that have been clinically proven to prevent hair loss and regrow hair; Minoxidil and Propecia. For more information you can speak to a hair specialist by visiting Belgravia for a free consultation or completing an online diagnostic form. You could also call 020 7730 6666 – a member of our hair growth assistance team will be more than happy to help you.
