The causes of baldness will play a large part in whether Mintop is effective. It’s specifically designed to treat male pattern baldness which starts at the top of the scalp, although it can have an effect on some other types of hair loss.
We can help you decide whether Mintop will be effective for you, or if another treatment might be better. Tell us about your health to get expert recommendations from our doctor.
Some men may find that Mintop takes three months to become effective, but everyone is different. If you haven’t noticed any change within four months you should have a chat with our clinician about other options.
It’s recommended that you take Mintop for at least two months before deciding if the treatment is working, as it will likely take at least this amount of time before you see its effects.
If you’ve been bald for a long period of time or the area of your scalp in question is large and bare, you’re unlikely to get much benefit from using Mintop.
Mintop cannot completely reverse baldness, but it can greatly help men with mild to moderate symptoms that haven’t been present for a number of years.

You should clean your hands before and after using Mintop’s topical solution, as well as any areas of the body that came into contact with it. It’s also important to make sure your hair and scalp are completely dry so the solution can be absorbed fully.
The solution is designed to melt into the skin quickly. This becomes quicker when the skin is warm, so it’s best to make sure your hands are cool to the touch before handling Mintop. If your hands need cooling, rinse them under a cold tap and dry thoroughly before use.
Firstly, make sure your hair and scalp are dry before applying Mintop. Then, apply only the amount the doctor instructs you to the area affected. Mintop comes with an applicator that’s specially designed to apply to the scalp evenly.
If in doubt, refer to the patient information leaflet that comes with the treatment. Using the product as instructed will provide the best results with the minimum of risk of side effects.
Applying, leave it alone to work its magic. Don’t shampoo, rinse or use a hair dryer for at least four hours after applying Mintop. You should also wash your hands immediately after use so that you don’t transfer it to others or ingest it while eating.
If you forget to take a dose of Mintop just carry on taking it as you normally would. While it’s ideal if you can remember to take it perfectly, a missed application here and there won’t make much of a difference. You shouldn’t take two doses of Mintop to make up for a missed dose.
