Does rogaine (minoxidil) for beard work?

It May: Rogaine (minoxidil) is approved for application on the scalp to grow hair as an over the counter product. Trying it in other areas may work, but more likely you would benefit from a medical evaluation and other therapies (some people do hair transplant to missing beard hair areas!). ...Read more

Will rogaine (minoxidil) foam work on a beard?

Hard to say: We know it works well for the scalp, but for other areas its not proven. However, rogaine (minoxidil) is no longer expensive, and if you have thin areas in your beard, or areas where your beard has lost hair, I would definitely try rogaine (minoxidil), twice daily for 6 months. ...Read more

Very very small empty areas in my beard. What is the solution for this. Will rogaine (minoxidil) help. Again its is small area but I would like it full looks bett?

Alopcecia: What you are describing is called alopecia. There are many causes for this, but small patchy areas of hair loss in the beard could be a sign of alopecia areata. This is an autoimmune disease and requires the help of dermatologist to treat. Still, as there are many causes for this type of hair loss, I would recommend you see a dermatologist to get the correct treatment for your condition. ...Read more

Does applying rogaine or minoxidil on the beard causes acne?

Does applying rogaine or minoxidil on the beard causes acne?

Maybe: It won't help you grow a thicker beard. About 5% of guys in the US can't grow much of a beard, and at age 25 it's time for you to accept what Mother Nature gave you. If somebody is giving you a hard time over your sparse growth, simply recognize mean-minded man-made superstition and be done with all that nonsense. Manage your acne with topical benzoyl peroxide & maybe your doctor's Rx. ...Read more

If I put rogaine (minoxidil) foam on my face will it help me grow a beard?

If I put rogaine (minoxidil) foam on my face will it help me grow a beard?

Unknown: As far as I know, the effects of rogaine (minoxidil) on facial hair have not been studied. However, rogaine (minoxidil) works in part by increasing blood flow to the hair follicle and could potentially help hair grow in any location. You must be very careful around the mouth, eyes and mucous membranes of the nose. Rogaine (minoxidil) is not formulated for use on the face. ...Read more

Can I grow beard with rogaine (minoxidil)? What hormone causes masculine chracteristics

Can I grow beard with rogaine (minoxidil)? What hormone causes masculine chracteristics

You can try: Hormone is testosterone. If you're a woman who wants to adopt the male body / role, there are programs in most developed nations that can help you. If you're a man who's genetically programmed to have a very thin beard despite normal testosterone (erections, body odor), you can try rogaine (minoxidil) for your face / chest (anecdotes of success), or simply note many women prefer a thin-bearded, smooth man. ...Read more

Is minoxidil good to take for growing a beard?

Is minoxidil good to take for growing a beard?

No: It does slow the process of male pattern baldness. Several percent of men can't grow a good beard. Many women seem to prefer a smooth man. You don't see Justin Bieber or Larry Bird complaining. If you're "culture" disparages a thin-bearded man, you have my sympathy. Hit the gym hard, build yourself up, and nobody will criticize any aspect of your genetics. ...Read more

Sir, I am 25 years old man. Can I use minoxidil tropical solution USP 2% for getting beard (for mustaches)? And can you suggest veg. Food for this?

Not sure: Minoxidil is effective in growing hair in the crown area of the head, will not work on the frontal area. It may work on face? If you haven't experienced hair growth on your face by now than chances are you have limited hair follicles. If you really want more hair on the face than consider a hair transplant. ...Read more

My age is 20 and MALE. I have not got beard! Can I apply minoxidil to get facial hair? : (: (

My age is 20 and MALE. I have not got beard! Can I apply minoxidil to get facial hair? : (: (

Some thoughts...: Billions of men and boys shave every day to get rid of any beard that might be starting. That means not having a beard is a great time-saver, and that beards are unnecessary for humans. The medical question is whether or not a guy has other male characteristics (which would be evidence that his hormone levels are normal)... and a visit to one's primary care doctor can address those issues. ...Read more

I have a problem with beard. I am using minoxidil 5%.Heard that derma roller increases minoxidil absorption. Is it true? Is it going to help for beard?

Sorry.: Minoxidil is for hair on your head. Facial hair is almost completely hormone dependent. Abrading your face will not increase facial hair growth. American indian men rarely have facial hair. They are still handsome and manly. ...Read more

Can I use rogaine (minoxidil) on my face? What will happen if I stop using it?

Can I use rogaine (minoxidil) on my face? What will happen if I stop using it?

Rogaine (minoxidil): Rogaine (minoxidil) is intended to prevent hair loss on the scalp, so I can't conceive of why you would want to use the topical preparation on your face. If rogaine (minoxidil) was successful in stopping hair loss or growing hair that had been lost, once stopped hair that has regrown will fall out and hair loss will resume. ...Read more

Are there side effects from using Rogaine (minoxidil) foam (womens)? Can you where a shower cap to bed so you don't get it anywhere on your face? Thank you

Hardly ever: Apply to scalp. Measured amount. No need for shower cap. A few people get local reaction, but I have never seen it. Helps some women keep more hair if used religiously twice a day for years. Generic 2% minoxidil is about as good as any other form and costs $4 a month. ...Read more

How does rogaine (minoxidil) work to cause hair growth?

According to them: "the exact mechanism of action of rogaine (minoxidil) is uncertain. However, researchers believe that rogaine (minoxidil) works in part by partially enlarging the hair follicles and reversing the miniaturization process. By enlarging miniaturized follicles, the growth phase of the hair cycle is prolonged, allowing the hair to become longer and thicker looking and with more follicles in the growth phase at the same time.". ...Read more
