Oral Minoxidil Informational Handout
Below is a copy of our office handout that we would give to patients who are interested in taking oral minoxidil for their hair loss.
Recently a paper was published in a leading laser journal that revealed a combination of topical minoxidil and low level light laser therapy was synergistic. Both treatment options for hair loss for men and women are effective alone but in a patient that has used one without optimal results, adding the other could enhance the results for hair loss. Very interesting!
