Regaine for Men Extra Strength is used to treat common hereditary hair loss in men aged 18-65 years. It is thought that it works by aiding the blood flow to the cells in your scalp which grow hair. The exact process by which this occurs is not known.
Regaine for Men Extra Strength works best in men with hair loss or thinning at the top of the scalp. Those who are younger, losing hair for a short period of time or have a small area of baldness are likely to respond best to Regaine for Men Extra Strength.
What Results Can Be Expected?
Regaine for Men Extra Strength will not work for everyone and it is not possible to predict how you will respond.
Hair growth is a slow process hence Regaine For Men Extra Strength takes a few months to work. In clinical trials 3 out of 5 men reported hair re-growth after 48 weeks of continual use.
Hair re-growth should become more noticeable after 2 months. Hair growth will be soft and downy at the start but should eventually become the same as normal hair. There may be a temporary increase in hair loss initially after 2-6 weeks of use. This is likely to be a result of the hair re-growth cycle and should subside within a couple of weeks. If shedding persists for longer than 2 weeks you should stop using Regaine for Men Extra Strength and consult your doctor.
If there is no re-growth after 12 months it is very unlikely that you will respond and you should stop using Regaine for Men Extra Strength.
You should continue to use Regaine for Men Extra Strength every day if re-growth occurs, to maintain re-growth. If you stop using Regaine for Men Extra Strength, re-grown hair may disappear within 3-4 months.
How to Use
Apply a 1ml dose to the total affected area twice daily (with a 12 hour interval in between) using the appropriate applicator. Each applicator is designed to accurately release a 1ml dose when used as described in the Product information leaflet.
