    TLDR Minoxidil effectively promotes hair regrowth in younger patients with small balding areas.
    The 1993 document provides an overview of medical treatments for androgenetic alopecia, with a specific emphasis on minoxidil and its effectiveness as a hair growth agent based on clinical trials. Topical minoxidil was found to be effective in promoting hair regrowth in younger patients with smaller balding areas, and maintaining regrowth in many patients in long-term studies. The document also discusses potential future advancements in the field, including experimental treatments and a multi-center study. Other treatments, such as topical corticosteroids and hair transplantation, are also discussed. However, more research is needed to improve therapies despite some treatments being effective.
