What is Regaine for Men Extra Strength?
Regaine for Men Extra Strength is a medication used to treat common hereditary hair loss in men aged 18-65 years old, by preventing further hair loss and encouraging hair growth.
How does Regaine for Men Extra Strength work?
Regaine for Men Extra Strength contains minoxidil, which is thought to work by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles in the scalp. Those who are younger or have less severe hair loss (slight thinning or small areas of hair loss) are likely to see the best results. Those who have been bald for many years are unlikely to benefit from this medicine.
What are the benefits of taking Regaine for Men Extra Strength?
Hair loss can cause psychological effects for men, causing them to become embarrassed and lacking in self confidence. Using Regaine for Men Extra Strength to slow and reverse this process can help men live happier lives.
How do I use Regaine for Men Extra Strength?
Always read the patient information leaflet provided in the medication packet.
Wash your hands thoroughly and make sure your hair and scalp are completely dry. There are two different options in terms of the application of this product and your choice should depend on the type of thinning/baldness that you have.
If you have a large area of balding then you should use the pump spray applicator. Remove the outer cap and put it to one side and remove the inner cap and dispose of it. Screw the spray applicator on firmly, press the pump once to dispense the product on to your scalp and then spread the solution with your fingertips.
If you only have a very small patch of thinning hair then you should choose the extended spray tip applicator. You must have the pump spray applicator in place for this so follow the above steps to insert this. Then remove the small spray head and replace it with the extended spray tip. Again, dispense the product by pressing the pump and then spread the solution with your fingertips.
Regaine for Men Extra Strength dosage
Regaine for Men Extra Strength should be used in amounts of 1ml at a time (the equivalent of 6 pumps in total). This dose should be repeated twice a day, with 12 hours between each dose.
You should not exceed 2ml of the solution per day and you should not use it more than twice daily. If you forget a dose then simply apply the next one as normal – do not double the dose or use twice as much to make up for a missed one.
If you use too much or if anyone accidentally swallows any then seek medical attention immediately.
