The science behind Women’s ROGAINE®

The active ingredient in Women’s ROGAINE®, minoxidil, stimulates shrinking follicles to regrow thicker, beautiful hair.

Minoxidil: an innovative hair regrowth treatment for women

The active ingredient in Women’s ROGAINE® Foam is minoxidil. The topical foam is believed to act on the follicles themselves. In hereditary hair loss, a combination of genetics, hormones, and age causes progressive shrinking of certain scalp follicles and shortening of the hair’s growing cycle. Over time, the active growth phase for hair becomes shorter, producing smaller and finer hairs with each cycle. Eventually, there may be no growth at all.

The exact mechanism of action of Women’s ROGAINE® Foam is unknown. However, researchers believe that Women’s ROGAINE® Foam works, in part, by increasing the amount of time that hair spends in its active growth phase and by increasing the size of inactive hair follicles so they can return to producing thicker, longer strands of hair.

Although Women’s ROGAINE® Foam may look like a hairstyling mousse, it’s actually a convenient topical foam that revitalizes shrinking hair follicles and helps regrow thicker, more beautiful hair.

Minoxidil: A proven hair regrowth treatment

Women’s ROGAINE® Foam is clinically proven to help regrow hair — but don’t take our word for it. The numbers speak for themselves. A large body of evidence spanning more than 20 years supports the topical use of minoxidil for the treatment of hereditary hair loss.

Development of Women’s ROGAINE® Foam was based specifically on the findings of two pivotal studies, which provided the primary support needed to gain approval for use of Women’s ROGAINE® in Canada.

Simply put, Women’s ROGAINE® promotes hair regrowth. Women who participated in the clinical studies increased their hair count and hair thickness. It’s important to remember that with Women’s ROGAINE®, you have to keep using it in order to maintain hair regrowth. Although clinical results can be seen as early as 3 months, it may take up to 6 months for you to see visible results.
