- Piloxidil is used in the prevention and treatment of alopecia. It is used in male pattern baldness in men and women.
1 ml of the preparation contains 20 mg of minoxidil for topical use.
The preparation uses the local action of minoxidil. It stimulates hair growth in male pattern baldness in men and women. In androgenetic alopecia, it positively affects the hair follicles, causing them to grow as a result of stimulating DNA synthesis. Hair improvement can also be associated with increased blood flow through the skin. The beginning of hair loss suppression is observed after about 2 months, the growth appears after 4 months, and the maximum effect - after about 12 months of systematic use of the preparation. After discontinuing treatment, after a few months it is possible to return to the initial state. Minoxidil is a pyrimidine derivative. When used systemically, it significantly reduces blood pressure through direct influence on smooth muscle of the arteriole and a significant decrease in peripheral resistance. It causes secondary stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system, acceleration of heart rate, increase of cardiac output and cardiac output, reduction of vascular wall sensitivity to catecholamines. It does not reduce renal flow. It is characterized by a high affinity to the walls of blood vessels. Metabolized in 90% in the liver to glucuronins excreted by the kidneys.
Prevention and treatment of baldness. Used in male pattern baldness in men and women.
