Minoxidil for Women: Does Age Matter?


Name: Pat

Question: Will mindoxil for women work on someone over 60 years old?

Three Generations: Women's age does not affect the benefit of minoxidilAnswer: Minoxidil is a product licensed for the treatment of hair loss in women and men over the age of 18. How old you are does not dictate whether or not the treatment will work, nor the extent of hair regrowth you will experience, but there are a few other things that will. The type of hair loss you have and how advanced the thinning is will essentially establish whether or not you are a good candidate for minoxidil, or any other hair loss treatment, rather than your age.

On the flipside, your specific condition and situation can dictate the concentration of minoxidil, or any other supporting products, that are required to obtain the best possible results. Minoxidil is licensed in a 2% concentration for women. This means that any woman over the age of 18 can obtain it over the counter from most pharmacies and the manufacturer’s backside is covered. Women are not limited to this one and only hair loss product, however, and sometimes a little extra is need to achieve the most effective result. But women will require a doctor’s prescription for a concentration any higher than 2%.

The Belgravia Centre’s registered pharmacy produces three unique versions of minoxidil which have the added benefits of concentration variation and medroxyprogesterone or azelaic acid. Each course of treatment is tailored specifically to suit the individual circumstances of each person, following a diagnosis conducted by one of our medically-trained specialists, and are also easily accessible to our clients as we have a resident doctor responsible for prescriptions.
