Introduction

Biodens Hair Lotion belongs to a class of drugs known as vasodilators. It is used to promote hair growth in men with male pattern baldness.

Biodens Hair Lotion should only be applied directly to the scalp area in the amount and in the way specified on the label or by your doctor. Clean and dry your scalp before using it. It may take approximately 2- 4 months before you notice any hair growth. The first growth may be soft, colourless, and barely visible. Using more than recommended will not speed up hair growth and may increase the likelihood of side effects. This medication must be used continuously to maintain hair growth. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsen after using it for 4 to 6 months.

Biodens Hair Lotion is generally safe and suitable for most people but may have potential side effects. The most common side effects of this medicine are itching and skin irritation of the treated area of the scalp. In case of accidental application in other areas, it may result in unwanted hair growth. Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water if you get it in your eyes, mouth, or broken skin. Talk to your doctor if you are bothered by the side effects or if they do not go away.

People under 18 or over 65 should not usually use Biodens Hair Lotion. It may also not be appropriate if your hair loss is due to medications (such as chemotherapy) or any nutritional deficiency. You should also not use this medicine if you have high blood pressure or use other creams or lotions to treat other scalp conditions. Talk to your doctor if you have heart disease or blood circulation problems.

Uses of Biodens Lotion

Benefits of Biodens Lotion

In Treatment of Hair loss

Biodens Hair Lotion is a medicine used to treat common hereditary hair loss. It can prevent further hair loss and help hair to re-grow. It works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles on your scalp, which prevents hair cell death and also enhances new hair growth. It is most effective for baldness or thinning at the top of the scalp but less effective at the front or for receding hairline.

Benefits are less likely if you have been bald for many years or have a large area of hair loss. Biodens Hair Lotion is not suitable for sudden or unexplained hair loss. It is considered a safe medicine. There are separate products for men and women and you should follow your doctor’s instructions carefully while using Biodens Hair Lotion. Regrowth of hair improves your appearance, boosts your confidence, and enhances your social life. Use it regularly to maintain hair growth and to get the maximum benefits. Consult your doctor if you notice any changes in the hair growth while using Biodens Hair Lotion.

Side effects of Biodens Lotion

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

Common side effects of Biodens

  • Skin irritation
  • Itching

How to use Biodens Lotion

This medicine is for external use only. Use this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Shake it well and apply to the area evenly.

How Biodens Lotion works

Biodens Hair Lotion is a potassium channel opener. Its vasodilation action expands the blood vessels. Therefore, when it is applied to the scalp, it helps to increase blood flow. This increased blood flow provides more nutrition and oxygen to the hair follicles, which prevents hair cell death and also enhances new hair growth. This is how it works to treat your alopecia (hair loss).
