People are saying minoxidil loses effectiveness after a few years. Is this true?

Name: Andrew

Question: After doing tons of research on the internet it seems many people are saying minoxidil loses effectiveness after a few years. Is this true? Is it only a temporary solution?

Answer: Thank you for your email. No, the minoxidil does not stop working. Your hair reaches its maximum regrowth potential then it stabilises, and then you will still require minoxidil to keep the regrowth that you achieved. Cessation of treatment leads to continuation of your hair loss and you also lose whatever hair that you gained.
