Regaine (known as ‘Rogaine’ in the US) is the most well-known brand-name for minoxidil . Regaine’s manufacturer, Pfizer, offers the product in a 2% ‘Regaine Regular Strength’ (men and women) or 5% ‘Regaine Extra Strength’ (men only). The extra strength version is available as Regaine liquid or Regaine Foam.
Minoxidil is one of only two medically proven treatments for hair loss in men and the only medically proven treatment for hair loss in women. The drug is a vasodilator, which means it increases blood circulation to the areas of application. Its hair growth properties were discovered accidentally when it was being administered in pill-form for high blood pressure. For more information on minoxidil including statistics, side effects and how to get the best from it you can visit our MINOXIDIL page.
Regaine takes form as a liquid or gel that’s applied to the scalp once or twice a day. Other minoxidil formulations are available and more information about high strength minoxidil is available by contacting the centre.
Minoxidil is effective for both men and women, and although not licensed for conditions other than androgenetic alopecia, it is well-known that minoxidil can be beneficial for other hair loss conditions including Alopecia Areata and Diffuse Hair Loss. The effects of minoxidil for hair growth are still a bit of a mystery as other vasodilators have not been found to have the same effects.
Find out how you can maximise results achieved for hair growth from Regaine, Rogaine or another form of minoxidil by combining it with the other medically proven treatment and various hair growth boosters – HAIR LOSS TREATMENT INFORMATION.
