An Introduction to Belgravia’s High-Strength Minoxidil + Azelaic Acid Creams
Belgravia’s high-strength Minoxidil creams contains 10% or 12.5% Minoxidil respectively, and 5% Azelaic acid and have been exclusively developed by the Belgravia Pharmacy to treat stubborn cases of male and female pattern hair loss and Alopecia Areata, amongst other conditions. As Minoxidil is dose dependent, the higher-strength preparations are in most cases specifically beneficial in areas which include the temples, frontal hairline, or in some cases patches on the vertex or crown. Because of the thick texture, Belgravia’s minoxidil cream is easy to apply to problematic areas.
How Do Belgravia’s Minoxidil Creams Work?
Minoxidil acts as a vasodilator and increases blood flow to the hair roots which encourages hair growth. Azelaic Acid is a natural substance found in some whole grains and in trace amounts in the human body. Azelaic Acid acts as an inhibitor of the enzyme 5 alpha reductase, which converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is responsible for damaging the hair follicles and restricting growth. This reduction of DHT in the scalp encourages hair growth.
The combination of minoxidil and azelaic acid is highly complementary. Minoxidil ensuring enough blood is being delivered to the follicles, and azelaic acid making sure the blood is in fit condition to ensure healthy hair growth .
Can Minoxidil 10% / 12.5% + AA be Used With Any Other Medications?
Over years of treating thousands of hair loss sufferers, Belgravia has found that the combination of more than one medication ensures the best results. Depending on the individual case, some patients might be recommended a combination of a minoxidil cream as well as a minoxidil liquid, and/or Propecia, as well as one or more of Belgravia’s Hair Growth Boosters to ensure optimum levels of hair regrowth as is the case in many of our Hair Loss Success Stories.
Like most other drugs there can be side effects from the use of Minoxidil. Side effects from Minoxidil are unlikely and are usually mild. Some of the possible side effects are increased facial hair growth, headaches, rashes and palpitations. They either diminished in a short time during use of Minoxidil or shortly after stopping Minoxidil. Higher doses of minoxidil will increase the chances of side effects.

If any mild hair growth in unwanted areas is experienced from minoxidil 10% or 12.5% + AA (such as the face), Belgravia’s pharmacy can prescribe a cream called Vaniqa, which is medically proven to reduce hair growth in areas that it is applied.
