The Rogaine Alternative: Compounded Minoxidil Formula 82M
Compounded Minoxidil Formula 82M is a sophisticated and powerful prescription topical hair regrowth medication for both men and women with hair loss. Compounded versions of medications are often prescribed “off label” by doctors who are looking to reduce side effects or improve compliance and ease-of-use. Minoxidil is proven to improve hair growth by stimulating resting “Telogen” follicles to enter and remain in the growth or “Anagen” phase, increasing blood flow to hair follicles, and helping follicles produce thicker and longer hair over time*.
Formula 82M makes minoxidil “less greasy” than traditional over-the-counter products by using a sophisticated preparation process at the pharmacy. When used properly, the medication dries fast and does not become a hinderance to hairstyling. This “usability factor,” in addition to a synergy of ingredients beyond simply just minoxidil, is what we attribute the powerful results we have seen and measured in our patients using Formula 82M. 82M also combines the known hair growth promoting abilities of retinoic acid or Retin-A which also acts like a penetrating agent–allowing more minoxidil to get to the target hair follicles. The sophisticated 82M mixture also contains a mild anti-inflammatory to prevent skin irritation and a mild anti-androgen, like those often found in anti-acne skin care products.
Instead of greasy and irritating propylene glycol base or “foam,” Formula 82M uses antioxidants and a mild hair conditioner. And, finally, sophisticated product packaging allows the medication to be applied where it is needed—on the scalp—as opposed to “Foam” products which end up primarily on the hair fibers and fail to penetrate to the hair follicles under the skin.
Compounded Formula 82M should be used twice a day, every day, and HairCheck tracking measurements should be performed approximately every 12 weeks or approximately 90 days.
