How Topical Finasteride and Minoxidil Treats Female Hair Loss

If you think you might have female pattern hair loss, you’re not alone. It's estimated that approximately 40% of postmenopausal women experience hair loss (Hershkovitz & Tosti, 2013). Genetics, hormonal changes, and certain environmental and lifestyle factors can contribute to this type of hair loss. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help.

Stops Hair Loss

In some women, high levels of the hormone DHT can trigger hair loss by causing hair follicles to shrink. Finasteride helps lower DHT to slow down this process.

Promotes Hair Growth

Minoxidil supports hair growth by increasing blood flow and nutrient exchange to the scalp. It also stimulates the active growth phase of the hair growth cycle.

Is Topical Finasteride & Minoxidil Safe for Women?

Many women wonder if it's safe to take finasteride together with minoxidil. Your doctor will take care to review your medical history before prescribing finasteride. Finasteride must not be taken if you're pregnant, trying to become pregnant or are breastfeeding. You should not take minoxidil if you have a history of heart disease or are pregnant. XYON's SiloxysSystem™ Gel is designed to minimize these potential side effects in a way no other topical can.
