Lacovin by Galderma labs 5% minoxidil 4×60 ml pack
Anti alopecia & vasodilator topical solution – 4 months supply
The mechanism of action by which minoxidil stimulates hair growth is not exactly known; A possible alteration of androgen metabolism in the scalp has been suggested, or also a vasodilator effect that can increase microcirculation around the hair follicle.
Applied locally, minoxidil stimulates the growth of keratocytes in vitro and in vivo, it does not increase the number of hair follicles but partially converts miniaturized and intermediate hairs into terminal hairs, slowing the progression of androgenic alopecia in certain patients.
Said stimulation occurs after 4 or more months of treatment, and is of variable intensity between patients. After 6-12 months of uninterrupted treatment, 1/3 of the patients have presented positive responses. However, stopping the treatment stops hair growth, and pre-treatment alopecia can return in 3-4 months.
