Zenoxidil F Pro Solution


Introduction

Zenoxidil F Pro Solution is a combination medicine used in the treatment of hair loss in men. It works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles which further prevents hair loss and stimulates re-growth resulting in longer, thicker and increased numbers of hair.

Use Zenoxidil F Pro Solution in the dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor or as instructed in the label. Clean and dry your scalp before using it. It may take several months before you notice any hair growth. The first growth could be soft, colorless, and barely visible. Use it in the exact dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. Using more than recommended will not speed up hair growth and may increase the likelihood of side effects. Use it for as long as the doctor has prescribed to maintain proper hair growth. If your condition does not improve after using it for 4 to 6 months, tell your doctor. This medicine is to be used only by men and not indicated in women.

It is generally safe, however, it may cause few common side effects such as application site reactions, dry skin, impotence, decreased libido, ejaculation disorders, breast enlargement, breast tenderness in male, and skin rash. In case of accidental contact with other parts of the body, it may cause excessive hair growth. If you get it in your eyes, mouth, or broken skin, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water. Talk to your doctor if you are bothered by side effects or they do not go away.

To ensure its safety, before using this medicine, let your doctor know if you have any problems with your heart. Additionally, inform your doctor about all the medicines you are taking. Pregnant, potentially pregnant, or breastfeeding women should not handle this medicine because of the possibility of absorption of finasteride. As it may cause potential harm to a male baby or fetus.

Benefits of Zenoxidil F Solution

In Treatment of Hair loss

Zenoxidil F Pro Solution is a medicine used to treat common hereditary hair loss in men. It prevents further hair loss and helps hair to regrow. It increases blood flow to the hair follicles on your scalp, which prevents hair cell death and also enhances new hair growth. It also stops production of a hormone that causes excessive hair fall or baldness and also increases 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.

Zenoxidil F Pro Solution is not suitable for sudden or unexplained hair loss. It is considered as a safe medicine. However, hair that has regrown may disappear after a few months. Regrowth of hair can be beneficial to your mood, self-esteem as well as your appearance, but you need to use it regularly to get the benefits. This product is meant only for men and should not be used in women.

How Zenoxidil F Solution works

Zenoxidil F Pro Solution is a combination of two medicines: Minoxidil and Finasteride, which treats hair loss in men. In men, the balding scalp contains small sized hair follicles along with increased levels of a male hormone that is believed to cause excessive hair loss and retards hair growth. Minoxidil is a vasodilator, which means it widens the blood vessels and provides better blood flow to the hair follicles. This prevents hair loss and stimulates re-growth resulting in longer, thicker and increased numbers of hair. Finasteride is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. It blocks the production of a male hormone in the scalp that stops hair growth, thereby reversing the balding process and preventing further hair loss.
