Corvinex Hair Loss Treatment Review

Corvinex is a popular hair loss solution used by many people nowadays. However, it has a number of positive and negative aspects. Basically, you cannot use Corvinex if you are a woman. It has some chemicals which are not fir for the physiological make-up of a woman. What’s more is that it may have some adverse side effects especially for those who are pregnant or for those who are of the reproductive age and are planning to get pregnant.

Corvinex is generally efficient as a hair loss solution. Just like other hair loss medications, it will take some time before it can produce visible results. In majority of the product users, they observed positive results after two months of continuous use at a dose of twice a day. In some cases, it took them four months before they saw the results.

Before you use this solution, you must first examine the reason for your hair loss. Corvinex is only for people who have male pattern baldness. This is characterized by a thinning crown. Male pattern baldness usually starts after puberty. It is triggered by the hormone – dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a by product of testosterone.

Corvinex contains a 5% minoxidil topical solution which is very effective is promoting hair growth and reversing hair loss for those who have androgenetic alopecia. But, this solution is not appropriate for frontal baldness so you cannot use it if your hair loss is only apparent at the front of your head. Also, Corvinex is not for you if you have no family history of hair loss because this might be the indication that your condition is not generative. If your hair loss is sudden or if it is patchy, then this means that your problem is also not androgenetic so again, Corvinex will not be effective.

While hair loss supplements can be used with topical creams, Corvinex is one of the few hair loss medications that should not be used with other medicines applied on the scalp. Adverse effects might occur when chemicals ingredients from the medications mix. In addition to that, you should not use Corvinex if you have a scalp problem or if your scalp is red, inflamed, irritated, or painful. If any of these occur as side effects of the medication, you should also immediately stop using the product and seek the help of a medical expert. Also, you cannot use this product if you are under eighteen years of age. For the best results, it will be better if you consult your physician before you take this medication, especially if you have a cardio problem. Because of all these limitations, Corvinex somehow appears not so effective in many cases of hair loss.

Another downside of this product is that it must be used continuously. Although hair can start to grow back after two months of use, the patient must consistently take the medication if he wants the strands to continue growing. If the patient decides to stop the medication, the effects of Corvinex are immediately stopped and the new hair will start shedding and thinning again. Considering this case, it might be concluded that this type of hair loss solution is more expensive than the onetime permanent solutions.
