View Full Version : Rogaine on the strip?

Anyone have any thoughts or experience with applying rogaine on the strip? I'm wondering if it would help by promoting blood flow to the scar and assist in healing as well as speed up or assist growth due to shock loss?

Do you mean Rogaine on the donor scar area after the procedure or on the strip after it is removed during the procedure?

On the donor scar.

To my knowledge there are no studies or data available that show the effects of Minoxidil application to healing wounds and scar formation. It is recmmended by some doctors to prevent post operative shock loss.
