Medical treatment of hair loss with Rogaine is a widely accepted treatment of all hair loss solution. which is even recommended by the FDA either as a treatment for male hair loss and hair loss treatment for women. Minnoxidil act by prolonging the growth phase of hair. But for medical treatment with minoxidil fully effective requires long-term use. It may take a long time, about 6 to 12 months, to predict a noticeable increase in hair growth. Within 2 to 3 months of drug withdrawal, increase in terminal hair density and growth due to the use of drugs can suddenly disappear.

Another drawback of Rogaine is that while it is effective in the crown or the top of the head, is much less effective in frontal area, so overall it is not effective as a solution for the front man for whom balding scalp and hair line is an important area for hair loss restoration.

Rogaine, especially the drug of choice for many women hair loss medication hair loss which is often characterized by diffuse thinning. Long-term use of drugs can sometimes bring about a complete reversal of thinning, visible even after stopping the drug, but the man, stopping treatment results in a complete reversal of benefits.

Medical hair restoration (Rogaine) as a combination treatment

Some hair restoration surgeons strongly recommend the use of Rogaine before and then immediately after hair transplant surgery, especially when the grafts have been placed in and around the existing hair. The idea behind the recovery operation combines medical hair restoration and hair is to help prevent a temporary loss of a healthy, preexisting hair due to shock of hair restoration surgery procedures.

The use of topical minoxidil both before and after hair restoration surgery is often recommended for patients who undergo hair transplant procedure as has been shown that Minoxidil reduces hair shedding due to transplant trauma and shorter recovery from surgery.

Attention prior to hair transplant surgery

Most surgeons feel that the medical hair restoration treatment with minoxidil should be discontinued before surgery to minimize the risk of skin irritation and dilation of blood vessels, which may lead to increased bleeding. Treatment of patients with 2% topical minoxidil is generally stopped 4 weeks before surgery.

The effectiveness of topical minoxidil application before hair restoration surgery are also well documented. It was seen that the hair loss due to telogen effluvium observed 2-4 weeks after surgery is more apparent in the placebo-treated patients (52%) compared with minoxidil treated patients (22%).

Attention after hair transplant surgery
It is not advised to use minoxidil on the transplant immediately after surgery until the incision has been allowed to heal. Most surgeons prefer to initiate the use of topical minoxidil at least a week or more after the hair transplant surgery. This allows time for the epithelium to heal and minimize potential damage from the theoretical to transplant grafts minoxidil-based propylene glycol. However, the use of minoxidil special glycerin based solutions can take care of potential problems and can help to obtain better growth after surgery.

Where minoxidil used before surgery, was stopped up to 3 weeks after surgery, and then start again and continue. It has been observed that about 70% of the grafts grow into the hair when minoxidil was continued, if not most of the transplanted hair is usually shed after 2-4 weeks of transplantation. There are reports that are available in medical trials showed that topical minoxidil is a useful adjunct after hair transplant.

Benefits of regular topical minoxidil administration was reported after the hair transplant surgery include:

o Increasing the number of anagen hair

o Promotion of hair growth in grafts transplanted and surrounding

o Reduction of post-operative shock and telogen effluvium

Medical hair treatment with Finasteride

As the Medical hair restoration with Propecia brings back the growth of hair in crown area, it has a complementary action, which allows the surgeon to have more donor hair will be available for frontal hair transplant and design the hairline at his own will. Since finasteride has no effect on the frontal area of ​​the scalp, no hair loss treatment of men with hair restoration surgery is generally done at the hair line and frontal regions.

If you are experiencing male pattern baldness, it makes sense to use the best medical treatment in conjunction with hair transplant surgery, you are sure to have your hair transplants grow well, but keep in mind that the non-transplanted hair will continue to fall.
