Apply up to 1 ml of Maxogen-X to your scalp in the hair loss area using the included dropper, preferably, in the evening.
Once a day should be sufficient for most people.
Use no more than 1 ml each time.
You only need to use enough to cover your balding/thinning area with a thin film of the solution.
No massage is needed.
You can use your finger tip or the tip of the dropper (included) to spread the solution.
Try your best to apply the solution directly to your scalp by parting your hair.
Otherwise you end up with wasting the product on your hair and it takes longer time to dry.
1. What is the volume of each unit and how long does it last?
A: One unit has two ounces (60 mL). It is sufficient for two (2) months with one application per day.
2. What does each of main ingredients do?
A: Minoxidil: FDA approved hair growth stimulator. Finasteride: FDA approved DHT blocker. Retinoic acid (aka, tretinoin): minoxidil enhancer. Minoxidil with Tretinoin, used once daily, is shown to have same results as that of using minoxidil twice daily. Azelaic Acid: a natural DHT blocker. ABN ComplexTM: our proprietary complex for non-genetic hair loss. Caffeine: hair growth stimulator. Fluocinolone: help reduce the scalp irritation and itchiness.
3: I have used Dualgen-15 NO PG for two years and received very good results. Can I switch to this product?
A: You can do that. It is recommended to use Dualgen-15 NO PG and Maxogen-X at the same time for two months (transition time) to see if there is any negative effective before you completely switch to Maxogen-X. You can alternate Dualgen-15 NO PG and Maxogen-X by using each product a day during the transition time.
If you are currently using any other products from MinoxidilMax and plan switch to this product, it is recommended to do the same. Give yourself some time to switch and monitor the change.
4. Should I use Dualgen-15 Plus or Maxogen-X?
A: Dualgen-15 Plus (Dualgen-15 NO PG Plus or Dualgen-15 With PG Plus) has somewhat advantage in effectiveness in general, while Maxogen-X has tremendous advantage in convenience. Maxogen-X dries much faster and is much less grease compared to Dualgen-15 Plus. In addition, Maxogen-X requires only one application a day; there is no need to use another topical solution with it. While Dualgen-15 Plus itself generally requires one application a day in the evening, it is typically recommended to use in conjunction with a lower strength product such as Dualgen-5 in the morning.
Therefore, Dualgen-15 Plus is preferred if you want to have the maximum effectiveness, and Maxogen-X is preferred if you want to have great result with great convenience.
If you are currently using Dualgen-15 Plus and plan to switch to Maxogen-X, please do what is recommended in the question 3 above.
5. Why does Maxogen-X require only one application per day, while other products require two times a day?
When the first minoxidil based hair regrowth product (Rogaine) was launched, it required twice daily application. Other hair regrowth products followed suit. There has always been a demand to cut down the number of application for better compliance and convenience. As a matter of fact, we have received a lot of requests from our customers to offer a solution that can work very effectively with once daily application.
The addition of the retinoic acid (Tretinoin) is the key in this product. Clinical study has demonstrated minoxidil with retinoic acid offers equivalent results as using minoxidil only solution twice daily. More information regarding retinoic acid can be found here.
6. Why is Maxogen-X recommnended to be used in the evening?
