How long does one unit last?
A: One unit is 60 ml (2oz). If you used 0.5 ml per application as recommended, it will last for approximately 4 months.
I found that 0.5 ml is not sufficient to cover all the hair loss area, should I use more?
A. Please be advised that you need only a very thin film to cover the hair loss area. 0.5ml should be sufficient for most of people. When applied properly, 0.5 ml should be sufficient to cover the hair loss area of a person with advanced hair loss (such as Hamilton-Norwood scale stage IV - V).
How long will I see results?
A: It usually takes 3 to 4 months to see results. In another word, you should see some difference after finishing one unit. Consistency is the key to the success. To obtain the best result, it is important to use it every day. It is recommended to use it evening and wash your hair in the morning (no need to use shampoo every time. Rinsing out with water will be fine).
Will I experience any regression if I switch from finasteride pill to Essengen-F?
A. This is product is perfect for those who are taking finasteride pills and concerned about its side effects. One is not expected to have any regression as a result of switching from finasteride pill to Essengen-F.
Why should I use this Essengen-F instead of finasteride pill?
A. The shorter answer is that Essengen-F works the same as finasteride pill (Propecia as brand name) while having less side effects. That is the reason why lots of our customers requested it. For more detailed information, read here.
