1. What is the advantage of Dualgen-10 Plus?
A. Dualgen-10 Plus has at least 3 advantages:
1. Higher strength of minoxidil means better hair regrowth: Minoxidil displays a dose-dependent effect with higher concentrations, improving the responsiveness and greater regrowth of hair.
2. No need to take oral finasteride. Topical finasteride works as effectively as oral version but with lower chance of having side effects.
2. Why do you offer this product while you have several other topical minoxidil finasteride products already?
A: We have several products that have both minoxidil and finasteride, including Essengen-6 Plus (6% minoxidil + 0.05% finasteride), Maxogen-X (7% minoxidil with 0.15% finasteride) and Dualgen-15 With PG Plus, Dualgen-15 NO PG Plus (15% minoxidil plus 0.1% finasteride). People have been asking us for a solution with 10% minoxidil with finasteride for years. We typically instruct them to mix several of our solutions to make it themselves.
We noticed that not all people are comfortable with mixing different solutions. That is why we decided to offer this premade 10% minoxidil with 0.1% finasteride and 5% azelaic acid solution in Nov, 2022.
3. How do I choose among your different minoxidil and finasteride products?
A. You can see the product comparison here.
In a nutshell,
If you want to be minimal and your hair loss is not very severe, choose Essengen-6 Plus.
If you want to use a product once a day, choose Maxogen-X.
The effectiveness of Dualgen-10 Plus is very close to Dualgen-15 Plus products, but it dries faster thus you may find it more user friendly.
4. Why is Dualgen-10 Plus almost colorless while most of other minoxidilmax products are yellowish?
A: The yellowish color in other products is due to retinol or retinoic acid. Dualgen-10 Plus does not have retinol or retinoic acid. Essengen-6 Plus and Essengen-5 NO PG Fast Dry are almost colorless too due to the absence of retinol and retinoic acid.
5. How often should Dualgen-10 Plus be used?
A: Use the included dropper to apply up to 1 ml to the hair loss area in the evening. If the product does not work for you after consistently using it for 3 months with once a day application, you can apply this solution twice a day with one application in the morning, and the other in the evening given that you didn't have any side effects from minoxidil or finasteride.
6. How soon can I see results?
A: It usually takes 3 to 6 months to see hair regrowth. Some people may see improvement in as short as 1.5 months. If you do not see any improvement in 6 months, this product is probably not for you and you should consider stronger solutions such as Dulagen-15 NO PG Plus.
7. Will I have any shedding if I have used regular 5% minoxidil for quite some time?
A: Most people who switched from regular 5% minoxidil to Dualgen-10 Plus do NOT experience minoxidil shedding. About 20% of such users have initial shedding but recover later because of strong regrowth.
8. Can you tell me the solvent composition of your product?
A. The solvent consists of Purified Water, Ethanol, and Glycerin. We can't give the ratio of the solvents as it is our trade secret.
We have done extensive experiments to optimize the solvent composition to ensure our products have the optimal absorption, usability and effectiveness.
A: The stability of a high strength minoxidil product like 10, or 15% minoxidil depends on how it is compounded.
If properly compounded, it has pretty decent stability. We have done stability study. It shows that It is stable for at least 3 years.
Please be advised that all minoxidil products should be stored at room temperature. Crystallization may occur if it is stored in a refrigerator, which is particularly true for high strength minoxidil like the product listed here. We have noticed that crystallization does occur occasionally during the shipping on cold days.
If crystals are formed in a minoxidil solution, you can warm your product bottle in hot water and shake the bottle for a few minutes to dissolve the crystals.
