15% minoxidil is the highest percentage available. This unique gel formulation virtually eliminates any issues do to irritation because of the low amount of alcohol used and the gentle formulation. In order to achieve the 15% concentration, minoxidil particles must be micronized by a very experienced compounding pharmacist, with great precision. This results in a rapidly absorbing triple-strength Minoxidil application. 15% minoxidil is ideal for the frontal hair line and crown for people with more severe hair loss, those needing to upgrade from a lower percentage to improve results or those who demand the very best results.
Studies on minoxidil show higher percentages of minoxidil result in greater hair growth (ie: 5% better than 2% and 15% results are better than 10% results).
What Hinders Minoxidil from Working Well?
Sebum from sebaceous gland blocks the hair follicle. Minoxidil therefore, cannot penetrate through the sebum as easily to get to the dermal papilla (where hair growth occurs).
Minoxidil / Rogaine® (which can contains up to 70% alcohol) stays on the surface causing, in many cases, irritation and itching of the scalp and drying of the hair shaft.
Minoxidil works at the dermal papilla, not on the scalp surface.
Limited Penetration = Limited Results!
How Did We Improve Minoxidil?
HLCC® Scalp Therapy breaks up and dissolves sebum - After Dexpanthenol has hydrated the outer layer and dissolved the sebum, minoxidil in carrier solution penetrates down to the dermal papilla. Remember, minoxidil only works at the dermal papilla level, not on the scalp, so if it can't penetrate it can't work to re-grow hair.
Carrier Solution is a product which neutralizes the alcohol and propylene glycol in Minoxidil, while maintaining it in a liquid state, allowing for better penetration, less irritation, and dryness of the scalp. Use of the carrier lotion allows you to use less minoxidil to achieve a larger effective dosage level by converting it into a lotion that is more easily absorbed. This product has not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, mitigate or prevent any disease or illness and is for cosmetic purposes only.
Because of the improved delivery system, the amount of minoxidil needed was significantly reduced (by 50%) to 1ml daily.
