HOW ROGAINE MINOXIDIL WORKS

ROGAINE® is the first topical brand approved by the FDA to help regrow hair in both men and women. With more than 20 years of results and numerous clinical trials, ROGAINE® is the industry-leading, #1 dermatologist recommended brand for hair regrowth

Minoxidil is a generic medication used for hair regrowth. It was originally developed for treating hypertension (high blood pressure) as an oral medication, and prescribed under the name Loniten1).

Patients taking the drug orally discovered that — as a side effect — it promoted hair growth on the body. Research has demonstrated, that if applied topically to the scalp as a creme or liquid, it would still grow hair for the majority of people using it. In the United States, over-the-counter versions contain 2% or 5% minoxidil at most, due to FDA regulations.

THE HISTORY OF ROGAINE

Like many great discoveries, the power of minoxidil to regrow hair came about by chance. Flashback to the 1980s, when scientists discovered that minoxidil, being studied for other indications, actually showed signs of regrowing hair. This finding was a pivotal discovery for millions of Americans experiencing hereditary hair loss.

Taking note, scientists began studying use of topical minoxidil solution on the scalp. Soon, results emerged showing us that topical minoxidil could indeed successfully regrow hair. That started the years of product innovations leading to the multi-generation ROGAINE® products to provide hair regrowth benefits for both men and women with hereditary hair loss. Today, minoxidil remains the only topical ingredient approved by the FDA to regrow hair.
