I used topical minoxidil for 1yr and got results with my hair, but noticed distinct changes in my face, including dark circles & lines under my eyes and changes to skin texture. After searching online, I found dozens of people reporting the same issues (try googling "minoxidil dark circles"). The number of such reports and the fact that minoxidil is a vasodilator makes me question its safety. Is it possible to definitively say that minoxidil cannot cause systemic side effects involving the face?
Is It at All Possible That Topical Minoxidil Applied to the Scalp Could Cause Systemic Side Effects Involving the Face?
