This is the region I am referring to (not me):

I've been using Minoxidil for two weeks. I've been applying it to my hairline, the temples, and the region circled above (just below the temple peak).

I've noticed there are much fewer hairs there than there were two ago (which I'm assuming is part of the shedding stage of Minoxidil). Is this a good sign? Is it safe to continue using Minoxidil in this area?

Note: I've been using it in this area because I noticed minor hair loss there.

It's smart to start early with Minoxidil. The earlier you start treatment, the better your chances are.

Wouldn't worry about shedding. Normally it's a one time thing. And usually lasts between twelve and sixteen weeks.
