Regaine – Hair Loss Treatment
Regaine is a popular product that encourages healthy hair growth on both men and women. It can be purchased over the counter (or online), without need for a prescription.
Scientists believe that Regaine works by increasing the supply of blood and nutrients to the hair follicle. In the early stages of Regaine use, old hairs may fall out, but this is only to make way for new, thicker hairs, so this may be a good sign!
There are two types of Regaine products available from Weldricks Pharmacy:
Solution (Extra Strength):
This product is ideal for males who want fast results when compared to Regaine Regular Strength. It is more suitable for those looking for re-growth and such results may become noticeable in just 8 weeks.
- Regaine is clinically proven to help slow or stop hereditary hair loss in up to 4 out of 5 people.
- Some users will even grow new hair.
- Regaine Extra Strength may work in as little as 8 weeks of treatment. The Regular Strength treatment works after about 4 months.
- The active ingredient in Regaine is minoxidil, which has undergone extensive medical testing for safety and effectiveness.
- Use of Regaine can strengthen existing hair and in some cases can stimulate secondary growth.
Regaine for Men Solution is suitable for males between the ages of 18-65.
During clinical testing, Regaine Foam re-grew hair in 85% of men after 4 months when used twice daily. With it being foam, there’s no hassle and no mess; it goes on easy and dries quickly, so your daily routine is never interrupted.
With continued use of Regaine, new hairs should eventually appear with the same colour and thickness as the rest of your hair.
Regaine for Men Foam is suitable for males between the ages of 18-49.
Weldricks Pharmacy also offers a Regaine Regular Strength for Women, which is the only clinically proven topical hair thinning treatment for women. It’s the trusted treatment choice of over 5 million people worldwide! Regaine for Women works in exactly the same way as Regaine for Men, by increasing the supply of blood and nutrients to the hair follicle. Regaine increases the size of the hair follicles and the diameter of the hair, stimulating and prolonging hair growth.
Remember with all Regaine products, that perfect results aren’t going to appear overnight, and products should be used as often as directed to see the best outcome. Early hair re-growth can be soft and downy, and will be barely visible. So stick at it! You also have to make sure to apply ALL the required doses; if you stop using it your hair will go back to how it was before Regaine.
Where did it all start for Regaine? Our Superintendent Pharmacist, Richard Wells, recalls:
“30 years ago I started to see Private prescriptions for Minoxidil Tablets to be crushed and mixed with various creams and ointments. A little bit of research was required and this was long before a few clicks on Google would give you an instant answer. Well it turned out that in America it had been noticed that this fairly new drug for Blood pressure had had some startling effects on the heads of some of the men for whom it had been prescribed. Hair was growing where for some years it had only been receding and of course this was very exciting news for those who didn’t like going bald – not to mention the men’s comb and brush industry.
Many years have now passed and of course the use of Pestle and Mortar are no longer needed. Treating male baldness was a great commercial opportunity and before long “Big Pharma” wanted a piece of the action. At first a prescription was needed but as soon as the safety of this treatment could be shown the manufacturers wanted to reach a bigger target audience and Regaine became available over the counter.
Some men can still feel embarrassed about buying this product in person so it is no surprise that buying online has become a preferred choice of many. Don’t forget, however, this is not a cosmetic product, it is medication and so buying from an approved internet pharmacy site is the only way to guarantee safety and quality of the product.”
