Rogaine spot test on the scalp
Yes, you can test a small area of the scalp with minoxidil (Rogaine). You would need to use it daily for 3-4 months before making a decision on whether it is working.
Hair Loss Treatment Basics--Minoxidil with Progesterone and PRP
Yes, minoxidil will work wherever you use it, so you can start by using it on only a part of the head. Usually a combination approach is best. I suggest seeing a hair loss expert to evaluate and go over your condition and provide you information about your best treatment options. There are great non-invasive options like PRP/progesterone which work well with Minoxidil and/or hair transplantation. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Minoxidil is a topical medication that works in the area you place it. So the simple answer to your questions is yes
