How does Tugain 5% Solution work

Minoxidil is the active ingredient of Tugain 5% Solution, which helps reverse the hair loss process of Androgenetic Alopecia.

Minoxidil is a vasodilator. Its vasodilating effect dilates blood vessels. Therefore, when applied to the scalp, it increases blood circulation.

Uses of Tugain 5% Solution

Tugain 5 solution containing Minoxidil is prescribed for treating Male Pattern baldness (also known as Androgenic Alopecia).

Male Pattern baldness, also known as Androgenic Alopecia, is men’s most frequent type of hair loss.

Each hair has a growth cycle. With Male Pattern baldness, this growth cycle weakens, and the hair follicle shrinks, resulting in shorter, finer hair strands.

Eventually, each hair’s growth cycle ends, and no new hair develops in its place.

Male Pattern baldness is associated with genes and male sex hormones.
