TOPICAL FINASTERIDE WITH MINOXIDIL combines two clinically proven treatments into one easy-to-use solution. The solution contains 0.05% Finasteride and 5% Minoxidil.
Freshman’s TOPICAL FINASTERIDE WITH MINOXIDIL solution is compounded without alcohol and propylene glycol. Treatments that contain these harsh additives are known to cause itchy scalps, irritation and dandruff.
Finasteride and Minoxidil work synergistically to treat common hereditary hair loss in men aged 18-65 (otherwise known as male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia).
TOPICAL FINASTERIDE has been shown to lower the levels of DHT in the scalp, a major cause of male pattern hair loss. With continued use, Topical Finasteride can help to reverse the balding process and prevent further hair loss.
MINOXIDIL reactivates and revitalises shrunken hair follicles and increases their size. Minoxidil is thought to work by dilating the blood vessels around hair follicles and increasing nutrient supply to the follicles. With continued use, the hair follicles gain greater volume, which helps prevent further hair loss and promotes the growth of longer and thicker hairs.
Finasteride is sold under different trade names around the world including Propecia ®.
Minoxidil is sold under many different trade names around the world including Regaine ® and Rogaine ®.
Wondering how quickly you can expect to get results from the Topical Finasteride with Minoxidil treatment? We’ve prepared an indicative timeline for you below.
Months 1 – 2
During this time, it’s quite common to see some hair shedding. But don’t worry,
this is the natural process your hair follicles go through before growing back
stronger, thicker hairs. This is a great sign that your treatment is starting to work.
Months 3 – 4
Most guys using Topical Finasteride with Minoxidil will start to see visible results after
3 – 4 months. If you’re not seeing hair regrowth at this point, don’t panic – we’re all different,
and some guys may need to use the treatment for up to 6 months before they see results.
Months 5 – 6 – onwards
After using Topical Finasteride with Minoxidil for 5 – 6 months, most guys will start to see significant results,
with little to no hair falling out, and an improvement in new hair growth and overall thickness.
Your hair should continue to get thicker over the coming months, and the full results of the treatment
can be expected after 9 – 12 months.

Other side effects which may occur, include:
Although uncommon, in clinical trials 3.8% of patients receiving a treatment of oral Finasteride tablets noticed some sort of sexual side effects, compared to 2.1% of patients who were taking the placebo. These side effects included less desire to have sex, difficulties with erectile function and decreases in the volume of semen released during sex. The side effects are usually temporary and disappear when the treatment is stopped. It is important to note that these side effects were observed in trials of oral Finasteride (tablet form) and that there is no conclusive evidence that the same symptoms are likely to occur with the use of topical Finasteride.
This is not an exhaustive list of possible side effects. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any concerns.
