Pharmacological properties
This tool belongs to dermatological drugs.
The active ingredient stops the process of hair loss by increasing the diameter of the hair shaft.
The preparation stimulates the anagen phase of hair growth and lengthens it. As a result, the anagen hair coverage is restored after the telogen phase. According to the mechanism of action, the active ingredient is able to improve the microcirculation process in the hair follicles.
There is an increase in vascular endothelial growth factor. This leads to more active development of capillaries, increased metabolic activity during the anagen phase of hair growth.
