In our experience, we recommend once-daily application of minoxidil 5% foam. This increases compliance and also decreases the risk of contact allergy.
We recommend it for use in the frontal two-thirds of the scalp and vertex, even though the package insert recommends only the vertex.
We have observed that the more recent the hair loss, the more success patients will have with the medicine.
We encourage patients to use the product for at least 6 months, to allow all catagen and telogen hairs to cycle back into the anagen phase.
