Does this apply to facial hair implants as well? Will Monoxidil help the newly implanted hairs on the face grow any quicker or thicker? I don’t see why not since the hairs we taken from the head area. I know that the label on monoxidil bottle tells you only to apply it on the scalp.
Yes, minoxidil can help speed up the regrowth of hairs transplanted to the face. However, it can cause irritation, which would be detrimental, and besides, because of the excellent blood supply to the face, it really is not necessary.
