In brief: Depends!

Minoxidil protects/enhances hair follicle function.
Scientific measurements done w/ HairCheck trichometry improve in about 90 days w/ visual results in 6-12 months. However, if you are using minoxidil in an area which is severely depleted of hair follicles, results will NEVER be seen. Those areas would require hair transplantation. Seek a doctor's evaluation, advice & follow-ups for best results.
