Hello doctor,

I am using Minoxidil and noticing dark eyes and wrinkles. Is there a way to keep using Minoxidil but counter the side effects?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

1. Minoxidil has nothing to do with dark eye circles or wrinkles.

2. It can lead to dryness, a bit of headache, and facial bloating.

3. Apply it in the prescribed amount only. Not more than 1 ml at a time and wash your hands afterwards.

4. Apply half a centimeter inside your frontal hairline so it does not get diffused on the forehead.
