Minoxidil (brand name Rogaine) is a FDA-approved direct stimulator of hair growth. It works in 88-90% of individuals with androgenetic alopecia to slow down the progression of hair loss, rethicken hairs that have thinned, and regrow hairs that have not been permanently lost. We recommend using the 5% foam once daily for both men and women. The solution is just as effective; however, it contains a potential irritant and some complain that it is too greasy.

Low-level laser light stimulation devices can also stimulate hair thickening and regrowth. There are many devices on the market. We typically recommend it as an adjunct to other more wellstudied treatments, such as minoxidil and finasteride.
HairMax Laser is an in-home laser hair regrowth device. These laser treatments work through the process of Photobiostimulation, delivering Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to your hair follicles to activate them for stronger hair growth. LLLT can help promote hair growth by increasing production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), which provides energy to the hair follicle, stimulates and stabilizes protein levels, increases blood circulation, stimulates cell proliferation at the base of the follicle enabling it to enter the growth (Anagen) phase and rapidly reproduce new cells to grow new hair, and reduces inflammation.
