Minoxidil is a medication suitable for men and women, to promote growth in thinning hair.
Minoxidil is a popular treatment, used to prevent further hair loss and stimulate regrowth in people with male and female pattern baldness. Minoxidil does not cure baldness or a receding hairline, it is primarily used to increase hair growth. Minoxidil comes in two forms; liquid and foam, and can be found in 2 strengths; 2% and 5%.
"Crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve"
Really happy with my initial consultation with Regina. Regina not only took me through the whole process step by step but crucially she listened to my concerns and was able to be open and honest about what we could achieve with my hair density.
Had my first consultation with Hillside. Strong core beliefs in promoting ethical values. I received comprehensive information, advice and recommendations from professionals and experts in the industry. I have been to numerous clinics whose aim was to make sales, I had even received incorrect advice and subsequently had the wrong treatments… but Hillside are unique.
Thank you Hillside for all that you did for me. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hillside to anyone contemplating a hair transplant as you are sure to receive a full packaged service with results that are second to none.

How it works
Minoxidil works by enlarging your blood vessels. This enlargement allows the hair follicles to receive more blood, oxygen and nutrients.
There are 4 cycles in hair growth: anagen, catagen, telogen and exogen. These cycles allow our hair to grow, lie dormant, die and regrow. If you experience hair thinning or hair loss, your hair growth cycle has been disrupted. For thinning hair, Minoxidil glues that cycle back together.
The anagen stage is where you grow healthy hair. This stage is known to last between 3-5 years before the hair enters the next 3 stages. Minoxidil allows your hair follicles to skip these next 3 stages and begins to thicken your hair.
