Formula Information

GrowBack's Minoxidil 5%, Dutasteride 0.25% and Caffiene 2% Scalp Serum is a specially compounded liquid formulation designed for topical application to the scalp. This unique blend of active ingredients is dispensed in a dropper bottle for precise and controlled administration, ensuring targeted treatment for a variety of hair loss and scalp conditions. Minoxidil, a potent vasodilator, works by increasing blood flow to the scalp, thereby stimulating hair growth. Minoxidil may stimulate the growth of human hairs by prolonging anagen through these proliferative and anti-apoptotic effects on dermal papillary cells (DPCs). Minoxidil, the second active ingredient, is a well-known vasodilator that has been proven to stimulate hair growth and slow balding. It functions by widening blood vessels and opening potassium channels, which allows more oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the follicle. This results in a revitalisation of shrunken hair follicles, increasing their size, and prolonging the growth phase of the hair cycle. Dutasteride, a potent 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor, works by preventing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that can shrink hair follicles and lead to hair loss. This makes it an effective component for treating conditions like androgenetic alopecia, commonly known as male or female pattern baldness. Caffeine, is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it an effective treatment for conditions such as Alopecia, Androgenic Alopecia, Telogen Effluvium, Trichotillomania, and Female Pattern Hair Loss.

How Does It Work

Minoxidil is a well-known vasodilator that is commonly used to treat hair loss. It works by widening blood vessels and opening potassium channels, which allows more oxygen, blood, and nutrients to reach the hair follicles. This action can stimulate hair growth and extend the growth phase of the hair cycle. Dutasteride is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor, which works by blocking the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone that can shrink hair follicles and lead to hair loss. By inhibiting this conversion, dutasteride helps to prevent further hair loss and may promote hair regrowth in some patients. The 0.3% concentration in this formulation is intended to target the hair follicles topically, minimising systemic absorption and potential side effects. Caffeine, is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it an effective treatment for conditions such as Alopecia, Androgenic Alopecia, Telogen Effluvium, Trichotillomania, and Female Pattern Hair Loss. When Will I See Results? It usually takes months or years for you to lose hair, so it can take several weeks to GrowBack. 80% of our patients see results within 3-4 months. In the rare instance, that the results are not as desirable as you want, we can increase the strength or add other active ingredients based on your hair health profile. The best results will come from continued use of your recommended treatments and are seen after 4-6 months. You will need to maintain the treatment for continual growth and reduced hair shedding.
