About Us

A lady asks what would happen if Extra Strength Rogaine (minoxidil 5%) which is labeled for men, is used by a woman. She adds that it says it is dangerous on the packaging, and not for use by women.

New York hair restoration specialist Amiya Prasad, MD reviews this question in this video, where he discusses how minoxidil works, and why a stronger formulation may not mean better results, and details how he stops female pattern hair loss:

0:55 – Dr. Prasad’s background training, and his founding of a non-surgical alternative for hair loss for men and women
1:17 – Dr. Prasad’s experience with minoxidil for men and women, and finasteride for men
1:35 – How 95% of hair loss cases are pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia), which is a progressive thinning of hair until the hair disappears completely
2:06 – How minoxidil can help manage hair loss by prolonging the growth cycle of thinning hair, but it does not stop hair loss progression
2:27 – How 5% minoxidil is the FDA approved dosage for women, and Dr. Prasad finds this concentration adequate
2:46 – How Dr. Prasad has also combined higher percentages of minoxidil, retinol, and other agents for custom formulations
3:02 – How Dr. Prasad has virtually eliminated the need for minoxidil in his practice because of Hair Regeneration treatment, which is more predictable and far more effective at stopping and reversing hair thinning
3:15 – How Hair Regeneration works using extracellular matrix and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stop progression of hair loss, reactivating hair that is not growing, and make hair that is thinning grow thicker
3:50 – How Hair Regeneration has achieved a 99% success rate in treating female pattern hair loss in Dr. Prasad’s practice, an improvement from the over 80% success rate when they were treating other female hair loss causes
4:30 – How most patients see improvement within 12 to 18 months, with only one treatment needed, a second treatment in the second year for a few patients with advanced hair loss
4:49 – How Hair Regeneration is an alternative to just stronger formulations of minoxidil, which can be prone to scalp irritation
5:14 – How minoxidil was originally a hypertension drug, which had the side effect of hair growth, so it does have value
5:26 – How Hair Regeneration patients stop using minoxidil after treatment
5:49 – How most of Dr. Prasad’s female patients usually stop using minoxidil because they didn’t find enough benefit from it, especially when applied twice daily
6:25 – How minoxidil does have a role in hair loss treatment prior to treatment like Hair Regeneration
