What is Regaine for Women
Hair loss can be distressing for women and it often results in a loss of confidence and problems with self-esteem. Available as a lotion, Regaine for Women is a treatment for female-pattern baldness. This hereditary condition causes a general thinning of hair on the vertex, which is the area located at the top of the scalp.
Why choose Regaine for Women?
Regaine for Women contains minoxidil, which is the only medicine currently available that is known to treat female pattern baldness. In clinical trials, three out of five women who used the lotion reported regrowth of hair on the affected areas of their scalp after using the treatment for 32 weeks. In other women, it can stop or slow hair loss.
What dose should I choose?
You will find detailed dosage instructions on the leaflet and if you are unsure of anything, you can contact our experts at Click. A dose of 1ml should be applied to the affected area of the scalp twice a day, using the applicators enclosed with the product. Note that exceeding this dosage will not cause your hair to regrow any quicker and it could lead to unwanted side effects.

You may start to notice regrowth after around four months of using the treatment.
