Drug Description


Rogaine for Men Foam is a hair regrowth treatment indicated for male pattern baldness (MPB), a form of androgenetic alopecia, to promote hair growth. 

Rogaine for Men Foam is categorized as a vasodilator drug. Its precise mechanism of action remains unclear, yet it is believed to involve scalp blood vessel dilation, potentially enhancing hair follicle function and promoting hair growth. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before starting treatment with Rogaine for Men Foam, and every time you get a refill, carefully read all information on the package and enclosed booklet. Should any inquiries arise, consult your healthcare provider or pharmacist. 

Rogaine for Men Foam is intended for external use and is specifically designed for men’s use only. 

This hair regrowth foam should be applied to the crown of the scalp twice daily, in the morning and at night.  

To properly use Rogaine for Men Foam, follow these steps: 

  1. Begin with dry or damp (not wet) towel-dried hair. 
  2. Part your hair into several rows to optimize scalp exposure. 
  3. Invert the canister and release half a capful of foam onto clean, dry fingers. 
  4. Delicately massage the foam into the areas of your scalp where hair is thinning. 
  5. Allow the foam to be fully absorbed and air dry completely before blow-drying, styling your hair, or going to bed. 
  6. After use, wash hands thoroughly and be cautious not to get the medication in the eyes; if contact occurs, rinse with ample cool water. 

Do not apply this hair regrowth foam to other body areas. Avoid application on red, painful, irritated, scraped, cut, or infected skin.  

For optimal results, use this hair regrowth foam exactly as directed. Avoid overuse or application to an irritated or sunburned scalp, as it may lead to the drug being absorbed into the body, resulting in severe side effects.  

New hair growth may become noticeable after at least 4 months or more, appearing initially soft, colorless, and barely visible. Continued treatment should lead to a gradual transformation, matching the color and thickness of the existing hair. 

If your condition fails to improve or worsens after 4 to 6 months of using Rogaine for Men Foam, or if you suspect a serious medical issue, promptly inform your doctor.
