Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.
the condition is called androgenetic alopecia.
It is hormonal condition and can be progressive if not treated.
Minoxidil is a vasodilator and promotes hair growth.
Continue the given treatment for atleast 1 year for optimum results.
Mesotherapy and dermaroller are newer treatments and they are available at skin clinics.

Hope this helps.
