XYON's patented gel delivery system is changing the way women's hair loss is treated. At the heart of every compounded topical treatment is a unique gel designed to release medications over time for more controlled delivery and reduce absorption of medications into the body.
How Does Topical Dutasteride Treat Female Hair Loss?
Approximately 40% of postmenopausal women experience some degree of hair loss (Hershkovitz & Tosti, 2013). This hair loss may be caused by changing hormone levels and a treatment like dutasteride may help. High DHT levels can cause hair follicles to shrink and stop producing hairs. Dutasteride defends against this by preventing the production of DHT.
Does Topical Dutasteride Work for Women?
Is Topical Dutasteride Safe to Treat Female Hair Loss?
Small-scale clinical studies and case reports have shown that women can take dutasteride without serious or long-lasting side effects. A doctor will review your medical history before determining whether dutasteride is right for you. Dutasteride must not be taken if you're pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a personal, or family history of breast cancer. The systemic side effects of dutasteride may be reduced with the help of a delivery system like SiloxysSystem™ Gel.About SiloxysSystem™ Technology

I have been using topical dutasteride in many of my patients for a number of years now. The unique topical SiloxysSystem™ Gel formulation allows excellent targeting of the dutasteride to the scalp with limited absorption and less reduction of the testosterone hormone in the body. This can be extremely beneficial for men and women who need to be treated for hair loss.
How To Use XYON Topical Dutasteride For Women
XYON topical formulations take the guesswork out of treating hair loss. Here are some application tips.
How do I use my topical treatment?
1) Our bottles are equipped with safety locks. Turn the safety lock to the open position to dispense a pre-measured amount of treatment.
2) Focus application on affected areas of the scalp. You may need to part your hair to expose as much of the skin as possible. Rub the gel in for 20-30 seconds.
3) You're done. You can style your hair like normal. Just be sure to wash your hands with soap and warm water after applying and coming into contact with the gel.
When is the best time to apply my treatment?
Your prescription will tell you how often you need to use your hair loss treatment. We usually recommend applying the gel first thing in the morning and leaving it on for approximately 8 hours. Avoid applying before bed to avoid getting the treatment on your pillows and/or sheets.
Other useful tips
Missed a dose? No need to panic. Simply resume regular application as soon as possible. It's important not to double up on missed doses.
Need to dry your hair? Go ahead and blow dry your hair as you normally would. We do recommend blow drying first and then applying your treatment to reduce the chances of disrupting the gel.
