“What’s the Difference Between Belgravia Minoxidil and Rogaine for Women?”

hairlossANSWERS - you ask, our hair loss experts answer

belgravia-centre-minoxidil-v-regaine-rogaineName: Kermina

Question: Hi, I’m 27 and am experiencing the female pattern hair loss. I wanted to find how one goes about it if they’re interested in getting treated. Secondly, I notice minoxidil is the same as rogaine and is used for hair loss treatment; what is the difference between the products you provide and rogaine?

Answer: Hi Kermina. If you are interested in receiving treatment for female pattern hair loss, we would always recommend booking a free consultation at one of our Central London hair loss clinics. However, as we are assuming you are based outside the UK (‘Rogaine’ hair loss products go by the brand name ‘Regaine’ in the UK), you can complete our Online Diagnostic Form and send us photos of your condition to assist with the diagnosis which will be carried out by one of our hair loss specialists.

They will then ensure the diagnosis is correct, assess the extent of your condition and contact you with their recommendations for the most effective course of hair loss treatment for your specific needs, the components of which can be sent out to you.

Regarding the difference between our minoxidil preparations and Rogaine, minoxidil is known to be a dose-dependent medication for both men and women, with the Women’s Rogaine version containing a low 2% dose. The Belgravia Centre offers bespoke minoxidil formulations that you can find out more about by contacting us or completing our Online Consultation.

You can see a number of examples of women who have followed our comprehensive hair loss treatment programmes in this collection of Women’s Hair Loss Treatment Success Stories, extracted from our wider male and female Photographic Success Stories collection which provides Before and After images of over 1,000 hair loss patients. These examples should give you an idea of the types of results our patients experience and the time it has taken for them to see regrowth in the affected areas.
