Minoxidil for Hair Loss Treatment

Minoxidil is the only topical hair product that has been FDA-proven to stop hair loss and regrow hair in men and women. 

Minoxidil was originally used to help treat high blood pressure, when patients and physicians noticed an interesting side effect: hair growth. The topical solution since developed has helped individuals worldwide regrow hair, lessening or eliminating pattern baldness and thinning hair with healthy, new hair strands.

Clinical research shows increasing the concentration of Minoxidil from 2% to 5% will increase the quantity of hair growth and decrease the length of time for successful results. 


When Minoxidil penetrates the scalp, it brings life back into hair follicles that have shrunken due to thinning hair or hair loss. Minoxidil will increase the size of these follicles by accelerating their growth phase.

Minoxidil exhibits a linear dose-response relationship. Increasing the concentration of Minoxidil typically improves the response, or hair growth, in quantity and decreases the time to see results.  

Common Minoxidil side effects are scalp irritation and dry hair, due to its 70 percent alcohol content. This can be overcome by using particular Minoxidil formulas, such as HLCC’s Re-Stim, which cuts the alcohol amount and adds aloe to sooth. 

Minoxidil is recommended for anyone combating severe, genetic hair loss or thinning hair. Of course, all patients should check with their personal doctor before starting a Minoxidil regiment. 

HLCC and Minoxidil Products

At HLCC, we have enhanced Minoxidil in eight different ways, starting with a Carrier Lotion™, which neutralizes the alcohol, minimizes the chance of irritation and allows for better scalp penetration. In addition, our Re-Stim products include Saw Palmetto and Aloe, which help soothe the scalp from any irritation. Our proprietary formulas include 10% and 15% Minoxidil with 5% or 10% Saw Palmetto, which treat aggressive hair loss.
