Hello dear,
Thanks for the query.
Both minoxidil and Dutamax are temporary treatment, that is it will give you some effect till the time you use it. Once you stop these medications, hair will start falling again.
The same will happen with any type of medical treatment you take.

Only permanent solution for androgenic alopecia is surgical, that is Hair transplantation.

Thank you
