What is Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength?

Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment is a colorless liquid medication containing 5% minoxidil for use only on the scalp to help regrow hair in men.

Who may use Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength?

Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength is for use only by men. Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength may be appropriate for you if you are a male at least 18 years old and experiencing gradually thinning hair or gradual hair loss on the top of the scalp (vertex only, as shown on the illustration below).

It is not intended for frontal baldness or a receding hairline. The common inherited thinning or hair loss process begins slowly and may become noticeable only after years of gradual loss. Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength is for men with hair loss or thinning hair that begins on the vertex of the scalp. Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength is more likely to regrow hair in men with hair loss in the range shown in the diagram. If men have more hair loss than shown, Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength may not work. Many of those experiencing hair loss have other family members with gradual thinning hair or hair loss. If you have no family history of gradual thinning hair or of gradual hair loss, or your hair loss is patchy, see your doctor.

Who should NOT use Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength?

  • Women should not use Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength because studies have shown it works no better in women than Women's 2% Minoxidil Topical Solution. Some women may also grow facial hair. In addition, Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength may be harmful if used during pregnancy or breast-feeding.
  • Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength should not be used on babies or for children under 18 years old.
  • Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength will not prevent or improve hair loss which may occur with the use of some prescription and non-prescription medications, certain severe nutritional problems (very low body iron; too much vitamin A intake), low thyroid states (hypothyroidism), chemotherapy, or diseases which cause scarring of the scalp. Also, Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength will not improve hair loss due to:
  • Damage from the use of hair care products which cause scarring or deep burns of the scalp.
  • Hair grooming methods such as cornrowing or ponytails which require pulling the hair tightly back from the scalp.

Do not use if you are not sure of the reason for your hair loss.

Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength differs from Minoxidil Topical Solution, 2% (Regular Strength) for Women products in the following ways:

  • Contains 5% minoxidil (regular strength contains 2%)
  • Regrows more hair
  • With Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength results may occur at 2 months with twice a day usage. For some men, you may need to use this product for at least 4 months before you see results.
  • Is more likely to cause skin irritation. If scalp irritation continues or worsens, stop use and see a doctor. See Warnings on package or bottle label.

Will Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength work for me?

The amount of hair regrowth is different for each person. Not everyone will respond to Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength. The response to Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength cannot be predicted. It is unlikely anyone will be able to grow back all their hair. However, to see your best results with Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength, make sure you get the medicine directly to the scalp and apply it twice a day, every day. You may get better results if you have been losing your hair for a short period of time or have little hair loss. However, for some men Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength may not work.

How soon can I expect results from using Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength?

Since normal hair usually grows only 1/2 to 1 inch per month, hair regrowth with Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength also takes time. Results may be seen as early as 2 months with twice daily use. For some men, it may take at least 4 months for results to be seen. If you do not see any results after 4 months, stop using Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength. When you first begin to use Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength, your hair loss may increase temporarily for up to 2 weeks. This is likely a sign that you are getting rid of old hairs in order to regrow more new hairs. This temporary increase in hair loss is expected and is a part of the process for how Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength regrows hair. Remember, this increased hair loss is temporary. However, if it continues after two weeks, see your doctor.

If Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength is working, what will the hair look like?

At first, hair growth is usually soft, downy, colorless hairs (like peach fuzz). After further use, the new hairs should be the same color and thickness as the other hairs on your scalp.

How long do I need to use Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength?

If you experience hair regrowth, continued use of Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength is necessary or the hair loss will begin again. In studies with Minoxidil Topical Solution 5% (Extra Strength), hair regrowth has not been shown to last longer than 48 weeks of continuous treatment in large clinical trials.

What happens if I completely stop using Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength? Will I keep the new hair?

Continuous use of Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength is needed to maintain hair regrowth. If you stop using Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength, you will lose your newly regrown hair in 3 to 4 months.

How do I use Toppik Men's Hair Regrowth Treatment Extra Strength?
