Question: Can Minoxidil lead to excessive facial hair?


Name: Francois 

Question: Will using Minoxidil lead to excess facial hair and if so, is there a remedy for this?

Answer: Excessive facial hair from Minoxidil is a very rare side effect and will usually only be noticeable in women (generally women with dark skin / Asian origin who are more prone to facial hair).  In the unlikely event that excessive facial hair growth is experienced, this will disperse when the medication is stopped.

However, the Belgravia pharmacy can provide an FDA approved cream that is proven to reduce hair growth at the areas of application.
