How is Spectral DNC used?
Spectral DNC is a clear, orange-colored solution to be used for external
application only. Apply 10 sprays of Spectral DNC two times a day to the
scalp and rub in. Do not use more than twice a day.
Is Spectral DNC safe?
Spectral DNC contains herbal extracts and vitamins which are known for
their safety especially in topical use. The other active ingredients such
as Minoxidil and Aminexil have been tested in clinical studies and have
been shown safe. Minoxidil has been on the market for nearly 20 years and
used by millions of people with extremely low incidence of side effects.
You should not use Spectral DNC if you are suffering from low or high
blood pressure or have heart problems.
Is a higher concentration of Minoxidil more effective?
Minoxidil has been shown to be more effective at higher doses -
Minoxidil 5% has been shown to be more effective then Minoxidil 2%.
However, beyond the 5% threshold applying more does not seem to improve
the results while the chance of side effects is dramatically increased.
Can I use hair sprays, mousses, gels, etc.?
Hair spray, gel, and other styling aids are not recommended since they
tend to clog the hair shaft. However if you insist on using styling aids
then you should apply Spectral DNC first and wait for it to dry completely
before applying styling aids.
Can I have my hair colored or permed while using Spectral
While there is no evidence that coloring or perming hair or use of hair
relaxers can affect hair loss, it is generally not recommended for people
with hair loss. If you are experiencing hair loss then perming and
coloring hair is not recommended. However, if you insist on using these
treatments then they will not interfere with Spectral DNC.
Is stress a factor in hair loss?
When the body is under significant physical and emotional stress it is
possible that the immune system will produce anti-bodies that attack hair
follicles and this results in bald patches or diffuse loss. Stress-induced
loss will respond very well to Spectral DNC and generally you can
discontinue treatment and keep the hair that you grew.
Can I go swimming or get my hair wet?
You should avoid washing off Spectral DNC after it has been applied.
You should avoid washing off Spectral DNC for at least 3 hours after
application. If you plan on swimming it is recommended to apply Spectral
DNC immediately after swimming on dry scalp or wait at least 3 hours after
Does the treatment reduce libido?
Just the opposite is likely true. Unlike oral hair loss treatments such
as Propecia, Spectral DNC will not affect your sex-drive. Pfizer has
applied to the FDA to use Minoxidil to spray on the penis to improve
erection. The other ingredients in Spectral DNC (Vitamin Complex and
Herbal Extracts) can only enhance sexual function. It is not well know how
Aminexil can impact sex drive.
What can I do about the flaking I've noticed since I started using
Occasionally users will notice flaking with Spectral DNC (only about 5%
of users will experience flaking or scalp irritation). Since Spectral DNC
contains Retinol, the flaking may be due to increased skin cell turnover
induced by that agent. If irritation persists after several weeks of use
then you should discontinue your treatment with Spectral DNC.
Can Spectral DNC be used by women?
Spectral DNC has been specifically developed for men and is not
recommended for women. Spectral DNC for women is currently under
development and expected to hit the market in the next several months. The
current formula is too aggressive for female hair loss.
Can I blow dry my hair after using Spectral DNC?
You should apply Spectral DNC after blow drying. Blow drying can cause
some of the solution to evaporate and is not recommended.
What type of results should I expect?
You should be able to take control of your hair loss in about 2 weeks
and start growing new hair within three months of use. If you have small
patches of baldness you should see significant results. It can take up to
6 months of use to see re-growth if you have an advanced stage of hair
loss. It is also possible that the treatment will not work at all for
users with advanced stages of hair loss.
Can I use Spectral DNC after showering with my hair wet?
Wet scalp will actually increase the penetration and make the effects
of Spectral DNC several times more powerful. This also dramatically
increases your chances of getting side effects from Minoxidil in Spectral
DNC. If you do not notice any adverse side effects from the use of
Spectral DNC you may want to try using it on wet scalp right after
showering to further increase its effectiveness. NEVER APPLY Spectral DNC
ON WET HAIR OR AFTER SHOWERING IN CASE YOU EXPERIENCE RAPID HEART BEAT,
DIZZINESS OR SHORTNESS OF BREATH. IF YOU EXPERIENCE THESE SIDE EFFECTS
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.
What side effects are there to using Spectral DNC?
Most of the side effects in Spectral DNC are due to the use of
Minoxidil 5% and are very similar to side effects reported by Rogaine®
users. In some people this can be a simple irritation, in others it can be
an allergic reaction. A small percentage of people experience dizziness
and/or shortness of breath. These effects occur because Minoxidil can
lower blood pressure.
What should I do if I experience side effects of Spectral DNC?
If you experience itching and flaking then try applying less Spectral DNC. You should try to gradually increase until you reach the normal
dosage once the flaking or itching goes away. If you experience dizziness
or shortness of breath, consult your doctor. Minoxidil can cause your
blood pressure to drop and you should have your blood pressure checked to
see if you have low blood pressure. You should not use Spectral DNC if you
have low blood pressure.
How effective is Spectral
Spectral DNC is significantly more effective then Rogaine® or DERCOS
Aminexil. Many users who did not respond to the Rogaine® treatment will
respond to Spectral DNC® and have a much better chance of growing
normally thick and healthy hair.
Who is the ideal Spectral
The ideal Spectral DNC® candidate is someone with little hair loss or
at the beginning stages of hair loss. It is much easier to prevent hair
loss then to grow new hair. If you have a large bald spot for longer then
15 years then Spectral DNC may not work.
What can I REASONABLY expect from Spectral
When deciding to use Spectral DNC, it is important to have realistic
expectations. Hair grows at a rate of approximately 1 cm per month and you
will not see immediate hair growth. In fact, during the first 2 weeks of
treatment you may actually notice increased hair loss as old hair are
being pushed out and the hair follicles start growing new hair. Do not
become alarmed with this and just stick to the treatment. You can expect
to replace hair lost within 6 months to 1 year of treatment.
When should I expect to see the results from Spectral
The response to treatment is different for every individual. However,
you can expect to completely inhibit hair loss within just 2 -3 weeks of
use and start seeing new hairs after approximately 2 months of use. You
will at first see "fuzz" hairs that are light in color, these
hairs will eventually become normal hair. Full hairs may be seen to grow
as early as 4 months into treatment, although the full effect is usually
achieved between 8 and 12 months. After that point, as long as Spectral
DNC is used properly the hair can usually be maintained indefinitely.
Can I use Spectral
DNC once a day instead of twice?
For Spectral DNC to be used effectively, it must be used twice per
day, preferably morning and before bedtime. Some people find that after a
year or two they can use Spectral DNC only once a day to maintain what
Can I skip a treatment or two of Spectral DNC®?
Yes. You can skip treatments for one or several days without reducing
effectiveness. If you miss an application, do not increase your dose the
next day to make up for it. Simply continue with the normal treatment
How long can I stop using Spectral
DNC without losing hair?
Once you restore normal hair growth, it is possible to interrupt the
treatment for 1 - 2 weeks at a time without shedding. However, it is best
to continuously use Spectral DNC to maintain normally strong and healthy
Will I lose the hair I grew if I quit Spectral
Yes. Spectral DNC requires continual treatment to maintain the new
growth. If you stop using Spectral DNC, the hair that you grew during
treatment will shed in about 2-3 months.
What is the DS Laboratories nanosome technology?
DS Laboratories nanosome technology encapsulates the active ingredients
in microcapsules that are hundreds of times smaller then human cells. The
outer layer of the microcapsules is formed from a material similar to the
skin. These microcapsules reach much deeper into the epidermis tissue then
standard carrier agents and therefore boost the effectiveness of all
active ingredients. Therefore, the 5% Minoxidil concentration in Spectral
DNC® is equivalent to using a 10% Minoxidil solution. This is
state-of-the-art technology that delivers remarkable results.
Can I use Spectral
DNC along with Propecia®?
If you have advanced stages of hair loss or
you have had hair loss for more then 15 years, it will not be possible to
re-grow all of your lost hair. It may be necessary to combine your
treatment with Spectral DNC with Propecia®. It is necessary to evaluate
the benefits versus the risks before taking on this treatment program.
Is it possible to grow unwanted facial or body hair from using Spectral
It is possible to get unwanted hair on certain parts of the face or
body from the use of Spectral DNC®, however, this side effect is
extremely rare. Make sure that the medication is only applied on the scalp
and does not spread to other parts. Wash your hands immediately after
applying Spectral DNC. You should also wait for the medication to dry
before going to bed so that it does not spread to other parts of the face.
What shampoo should I use?
To boost results of Spectral DNC, the manufacturer recommends using Revita
Hair Growth Shampoo. The manufacturer
recommends washing your hair every day and keeping the scalp clean at all
What's the difference between Rogaine® and Spectral DNC®?
Rogaine is a 5% Minoxidil solution approved by the FDA as a treatment
for hair loss. Rogaine® does not contain any other active ingredients.
Spectral DNC® uses the highest quality research grade Minoxidil combined
with Aminexil - the only other compound clinically proven to re-grow hair.
Spectral DNC® also contains Retinol, a vitamin & mineral complex,
highest purity herbal extracts, and Copper Peptides. All the active
ingredients are encapsulated in DS Laboratories microcapsules. In short,
Spectral DNC® is significantly more effective and provides rapid and
dramatic results even in users who did not respond to Rogaine®.
DNC work on the frontal hair line or is it only
effective on the crown?
Unlike other topical treatments, Spectral DNC can help re-grow hair
on the frontal hair line as well as on the crown. Most users are able to
re-grow and maintain normally strong and healthy hair on the entire scalp.
