  • Who should use Formula 82F “Finoxidil”? 

    • Formula 82F “Finoxidil” offers the powerful DHT-reducing effect of finasteride along with a deeply penetrating minoxidil formulation in a non-greasy, user-friendly, hairstyle friendly, compounded topical prescription formula that may be appropriate for men and some postmenopausal women in the medical management of hair loss.


  • How does Formula 82F Topical Finasteride “Finoxidil” work?   

    • It is well accepted that minoxidil is a potent hair growth stimulator, causing resting follicles to produce hair, and weak follicles to produce longer thicker, and more pigmented hair over time with consistent use. Oral finasteride is used to reduce dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a known trigger for hair loss, in order to enhance hair growth.  New research suggests that topical finasteride can be an effective treatment for hair loss and may reduce the chance of side effects that may occur with oral treatment.

  • When will I see results with Formula 82F “Finoxidil”? 

    • Increases in hair growth can be seen as early as ten weeks* using a video scalp microscope or HairCheck™ measurements. Cosmetic benefits may take six to twelve months to be noticeable in the mirror or in photos

  • Can I use Formula 82F “Finoxidil” Topical Finasteride with Other Treatments (Laser, Oral Finasteride/Propecia, PRP, Hair Transplants, etc.)? 

    • Hereditary Hair Loss is a medical condition that responds very well to multimodality or multi-therapy approach. Formula 82F Topical Finasteride can be used in conjunction with PRP, Low-Level Laser Therapy (CapillusRX or LaserCap) as well as oral treatments because it works with a completely different, non-redundant mechanism than the other hair growth therapies mentioned. When used in conjunction with hair transplantation, Formula 82F Topical Finasteride should be avoided during the healing phase and resumed after the crusts are gone and the skin is healed completely.
