Lotions & Foam Medications
There are topical treatments available for treating baldness. Minoxidil which is a generic cream/foam drug is readily available for men who don’t like swallowing pills but would still want to slow down, prevent as well as re-grow their lost hair. According to Dr. Penstein, you may experience some side effects using this solution. You also need to use most baldness lotions and foams at least twice daily. One notable advantage is; you don’t need a prescription to buy Minoxidil.
The treatment works by expanding hair follicles and encouraging hair growth. Minoxidil can take approximately four months to start working. 70% of users report some re-growth after using the treatment as directed.
