What is Tugain 5

Tugain 5 solution contains Minoxidil, a member of the class of medicines known as vasodilators.

It is prescribed to stimulate hair growth in men with Male Pattern baldness.

It acts on the scalp to promote hair growth in areas of baldness and should only be applied to the scalp region.

This prescription-based medicine is FDA-approved and can only be purchased with a doctor's recommendation. 

Cipla Ltd. is the leading pharmaceutical company that manufactures revolutionary Tugain 5.

Uses of Tugain 5

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

Male pattern baldness

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. 

How does Tugain 5 work

Minoxidil is the active ingredient of Tugain, 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. 

It is believed to Reverse the miniaturization of follicles. However, the actual working of Tugain 5 is unknown.

Additionally, it stimulates follicle movement to the growth phase and extends each follicle growth phase.
