The Perfect Duo: A Receding Hairline & Minoxidil
Effectiveness and potential side effects should be your top concerns when researching what treatment to use for your receding hairline. Minoxidil is safe, effective, FDA-approved, and most importantly, comes without side effects like low libido and erectile dysfunction.
Finasteride Vs. Minoxidil
Many men turn to use finasteride to treat male pattern baldness. Hopefully they realize that using finasteride comes with the risk of experiencing issues in the bedroom, and even mental health problems.
On the other hand, minoxidil is safe and effective. Side effects of using a solution with 5% minoxidil are minimal but can include redness or stinging at the application site. Keep in mind that minoxidil is only FDA-approved to regrow hair on the top of the scalp, but studies have also shown minoxidil can improve hair growth on a receding hair line.
