Minoxidil and Formula 82M

Minoxidil and Formula 82M

Hair Transplant and Restoration Center

Minoxidil (Rogaine) was the first treatment to gain FDA approval for fighting men’s hair loss. This 5% topical foam works well for promoting new hair growth as well as sufficient developing follicles in men when applied twice a day, and women when applied once a day. It carries a low risk of side effects and clinically proven to stimulate growth. Additionally, Dr. Gray offers a prescription strength Minoxidil called Formula 82M. This prescription solution mix of Minoxidil, Retin A, and a weak steroid increases the penetration of the Minoxidil, which enhances its efficacy.

Minoxidil regrows hair

Minoxidil – more widely known by the brand name Rogaine – is a tried-and-true medical option for fighting hair loss. This over-the-counter topical solution was the first hair-loss treatment to gain FDA approval more than 20 years ago. Though its mechanism for fighting hair loss has yet to be entirely understood, the results are undeniable. When applied consistently, Rogaine stimulates hair growth and reduces, slows down, or even reverses the impact of male pattern baldness. At Hair Transplant & Restoration Center, Dr. Gray is also able to offer a prescription strength Minoxidil called Formula 82M. This is a prescription solution mix of Minoxidil, Retin A, and a weak steroid that increases the penetration of the Minoxidil, enhancing its efficacy.

Stopping hair loss by starting growth

Rogaine is applied to the scalp twice a day as a topical solution or foam, in a 5% concentration when used by men. It is a very effective solution for slowing the rate of hair loss, in men of all ages, and is especially viable for younger patients who are not yet candidates for hair transplants. Thanks to its growth-stimulating properties, it is useful for fighting hereditary male pattern baldness, as well as other forms of hair loss. This FDA-approved treatment enlarges the hair follicle and restarts the growth cycle, resulting in thicker hair and regrowth. Minoxidil can improve the quality and thickness of hair on all areas of the scalp, but it tends to achieve the greatest impact in the crown. It has its greatest effect in the first two years of treatment, and many men see a decrease in effectiveness as time goes on.

Minoxidil at HT&RC

Dr. Gray can help you get the maximum impact from non-surgical treatment with Minoxidil while also planning your next steps. Since it’s a topical form of medical hair loss treatment, Minoxidil can be used in combination with many other solutions to achieve results. When paired with laser treatments, for example, it can accelerate growth while the laser fights the effects of DHT. At HT&RC, Rogaine is likely to be one component in a comprehensive treatment plan.

    Alopecia Awareness Month: Trichotillomania

    This September, let's increase awareness of a specific type of alopecia, Trichotillomania. Trichotillomania is an obsessive compulsive disorder that causes people to pull out their own hair.  At the root of an obsessive-compulsive disorder is a mental disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions) and behaviors that drive them to do something over and over (compulsions).  Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts. This disorder often begins in childhood, commonly affects women more than men, and is estimated to affect 1 - 4% of the population. It is also estimated that as many as 2.5 million Americans experience trichotillomania at some point in their lifetimes.
