Thanks for the query.
Minoxidil is a maintenance therapy. Once you start, you need to use it indefinitely, hair changes will be noted in 4 months. Apart from this, few people may develop allergic contact dermatitis or hypotension which is very rare. The treatment typically consists of usage of oral medication (Finasteride) and topical lotion (Minoxidil ). The dosage and duration is decided by your dermatologist. You need to be patient with the treatment protocol as it takes months to see initial improvement.
Certain dermatologists supplement biotin, hair serum and advice procedures like PRP therapy which may accelerate the rate of hair growth. PRP needs multiple sessions roughly at 6 weeks intervals.
PRP therapy is increasingly being accepted by dermatologists all over the world.
Apart from active pharmaceutical medicines, a healthy diet and lifestyle is mandatory to achieve results
