Rogaine work in the frontal area or
is it only effective on the crown?
All treatments that work on the crown also work to
some degree in the front--just not as well. Treatments
are generally more effective the further back you go.
Confusion arises because of the way some studies were
conducted. With Rogaine (minoxidil), for instance,
studies only measured vertex balding; i.e., the traditional
spot. Accordingly, the only hair growth results that
the manufacturer is allowed to claim by the FDA is
to say it will grow hair in the crown. However
this does not mean that you should not use it on all
areas of your hair loss as it most likely will have
a positive result regardless of where its applied.
