The first line of defense against hair loss is the nightly use of minoxidil. Minoxidil encourages hair growth in the new strands of hair, and for them to stay on the head longer. Patients who notice decreased density or thinning hair should start using minoxidil at the first sign of thinning. Our practice has developed a 5% minoxidil solution that adds to prescription ingredients to enhance the absorption of minoxidil into the thinning hairs.
