Topical Hair Growth Formulations

Hair Growth Topical Serum
A topical prescription containing minoxidil 5%, tretinoin, and fluocinolone aids in hair growth by targeting different aspects of the hair growth cycle and addressing underlying scalp conditions.
  • Minoxidil 5%: Minoxidil is a vasodilator that promotes blood circulation to the hair follicles. It extends the anagen, or growth phase of the hair cycle, resulting in thicker and denser hair. Minoxidil may also stimulate dormant hair follicles to enter the growth phase.
  • Tretinoin: Tretinoin, a derivative of vitamin A, enhances the absorption and effectiveness of other ingredients in the formulation. It works by promoting cell turnover and removing dead skin cells, unclogging hair follicles, and allowing for healthier hair growth. Tretinoin can also improve the penetration of minoxidil into the scalp.
  • Fluocinolone: Fluocinolone is a corticosteroid with anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces inflammation and irritation on the scalp, which can contribute to hair loss. By addressing scalp conditions such as dermatitis or psoriasis, fluocinolone creates a more favorable environment for hair growth.
  • Vitamin E: Vitamin E is beneficial for the scalp as it helps to improve blood circulation, nourish hair follicles, and protect the scalp from free radical damage, promoting healthy hair growth.
  • This combination of ingredients works synergistically to address various factors affecting hair growth. Minoxidil promotes blood flow, tretinoin improves cell turnover and follicle health, and fluocinolone reduces inflammation and scalp irritation. Together, they aim to stimulate hair follicles, prolong the growth phase, and create optimal conditions for hair regrowth.


Finasteride is an oral medication commonly used to treat male pattern baldness, which is characterized by hair loss in men. It belongs to the class of drugs known as 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors.

Finasteride inhibits 5-alpha-reductase, which converts testosterone to DHT. DHT shrinks hair follicles and may cause hair loss in people with male pattern baldness.

By lowering DHT levels in the scalp, finasteride helps to reverse the miniaturization process of hair follicles, allowing them to regain their normal size. This can lead to increased hair thickness and regrowth.

It is important to note that finasteride is typically prescribed for men and may not be suitable or recommended for women. Schedule a complimentary consultation with our licensed provider to see if this medication is right for you.
