Formula 82F – Topical Finasteride with Minoxidil

This compounded medical formulation is the basic 82M formula mixed with topical finasteride along with some other modifications to improve efficacy of both minoxidil and finasteride.  Please click this link 82M formulation  for more details. With some men who report that they cannot take oral finasteride (Propecia) due to sexual side effects, there has been a resurgence in evaluating the efficacy of topical finasteride as a method of treatment with evidence today that topical finasteride provides the effectiveness of oral finasteride with reduced risk of side effects. 6 In past studies, topical finasteride did not show great promise.  However, adding retinoic acid permitted scalp penetration to the hair follicles and titrating the right dosage facilitated greater effectiveness while minimizing serum (blood) absorption. This formula is designed for men and for some post-menopausal women.  Women of childbearing age cannot take this medication and should not touch a man’s scalp for 3 hours after application of the product.

  • Fantastic results with 82F, a topical hair restoration product that Dr Lam and colleagues put me on to. Highly recommended

  • I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Lam to inquire about hair transplant surgery for my thinning hair. At the consultation appointment they educated me and gave me options outside of surgery. Based on their recommendation I used a topical medicine to allow for my natural hair regeneration and regrowth. It worked beautifully and five months later the results are remarkable. My hair is fuller, darker, the thin spots have filled in and my wife has noticed a thicket set of hair which makes me look younger. I highly recommend Dr. Lam and his professional office team and will refer my friends and family to him.
