External medications for treatment of alopecia

External treatment of alopecia, like any other, should be complex. Include a variety of drugs (nutrients, antifungal, antiseborrhoeic, anti-inflammatory, exfoliating, antiandrogenic and vasodilating drugs). Scientists have carried out a lot of research, and proved that the drugs containing minoxidil (Rogaine, Minoxidil, Proxiphen, etc.) possess great effectiveness in controlling alopecia.

External treatment of alopeciaAll of them are applied exclusively externally, and after 4 months of treatment in 26% of cases the result was noticeable. At the end of the annual course of treatment in 48% of patients, hair growth was practically restored. But a significant disadvantage of these drugs is that they have to be used constantly, since after stopping their production by hair they again cease to grow and alopecia develops with the same strength in 3-4 months.

Do not forget that if you diagnosed androgen-dependent alopecia, it, like all chronic diseases, can not be cured. Constantly it is necessary to conduct therapeutic methods for the suspension of the disease, otherwise there may be relapses. In this case, the doctor who observes this patient must choose a treatment that will have the most sparing effect and have an analogue that can be easily applied for home treatment. Also it is necessary to consider the cost of drugs and possible side effects from the long-term effects of medications.

Often, patients use drugs that are developed based on the extractor of plants, proteins, essential and vegetable oils, complexes of their natural vitamins and minerals. It is good to use complex irritant methods of action (such as alcohol tinctures) with trophic (for example, 100% natural means of Satur-growth).

After treatment, relapses are possible, especially during the period of seasonal exacerbations. We must not forget about preventive methods of treatment, use vitamin and mineral complexes, antioxidant agents.
