Rogaine, a brand of McNeil Consumer, announced the launch of Women’s Rogaine 5% Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, the first once-daily treatment for female pattern hair loss.

The new Women’s Rogaine formulation contains 5% minoxidil. Minoxidil is thought to act at the level of the hair follicle, possibly directly stimulating hair follicle epithelial growth. It may induce follicle hypertrophy and a return to more normal hair follicle diameter and depth in existing small follicles (eg, regrowth) rather than stimulation of new follicle formation.

Clinical data showed that once-daily treatment with Women’s Rogaine 5% Minoxidil Topical Aerosol for 24 weeks resulted in hair regrowth in 81% of the women participants. Results were seen as early as 12 weeks with new hair growing in 48% thicker than before.

Women’s Rogaine 5% Minoxidil Topical Aerosol is available over-the-counter in 2-month (one 60g can) and 4-month (two 60g cans) supply packages. Women’s Rogaine is already available as a 2% Minoxidil Topical Solution.
