Shaltop-A Solution general information

What is Shaltop-A Solution used for?

Shaltop-A Solution is used as a tropical treatment for male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) and also for hair loss in women (female pattern hair loss). Shaltop-A Solution is also used to treat alopecia areata, which is when round bald patches appear on the scalp and is thought to be an autoimmune disorder due to self-destruction of hair follicles. Shaltop-A Solution is a combination medication that stabilises hair loss and induces re-growth of hair in areas where the hair is thinning. Shaltop-A Solution is most effective in people who have just started to lose hair or when hair loss is recent, and can reverse mild to moderate hair loss and prevent the progression of hair loss in the frontal areas of the scalp as well as the vertex area. However, Shaltop-A cannot cure baldness or restore hair that has been lost for a long time. At first the new hair will be soft and downy but with continuous treatment it should become the same colour and thickness and your existing hair.

How does Shaltop-A Solution work?

Shaltop-A Solution contains a combination of three medications that are known be help reduce hair loss. Hair loss is due to shrinking hair follicles that gradually produce smaller and thinner hairs, which eventually do not emerge from the follicle. The longer hair follicles are inactive the harder it is for them to respond and begin new growth. Minoxidil in Shaltop-A Solution is a vasodilator (dilates or widens blood vessels) and is thought to stimulate hair follicles to grow by increasing blood flow in the scalp and enhancing cell proliferation in hair follicles that were in resting phase. Azaleic acid in Shaltop-A Solution is an inhibitor of 5α-reductase the enzyme that converts the male hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the androgen primarily responsible for development and growth of the prostate gland. DHT is also found in hair follicles and is responsible for hair loss, as it causes hair follicles in the scalp to gradually shrink producing smaller and thinner hairs, which eventually do not emerge from the follicle. Tretinoin in Shaltop-A Solution is an active metabolite of Vitamin A that modifies the way skin cells behave by blocking the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinisation and cornification) and increasing the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting growth of new skin cells. It is thought to help reduce hair loss by increasing the absorption of minoxidil through the skin.
