Grow hair faster, more and thicker! Launch of D Clinic’s unique new treatment that increases the activity of minoxidil by 5.7 times and enhances the hair growth effect
*Starting from Tuesday, July 9, 2024! Arrowroot extract and gentian extract enhance the expression of sulfotransferase gene*
D Clinic (Sapporo, Tokyo, Shinjuku, Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka
A total of 6 clinics) will begin a new treatment using D Clinic’s proprietary scalp lotion, which increases the activity of the topical drug “minoxidil” used for AGA treatment by 5.7 times *1. This treatment method was developed in research by Dr. Kobayashi, the director of D Clinic Tokyo, and Dr. Koyama, the director of D Clinic Tokyo.The natural plant ingredients “arrow root extract” and “gentian extract” were used to enhance the hair growth effect of minoxidil. It was discovered that it contributes to the activity of enzymes, and this effect was applied. (European held in Bologna, Italy from May 18th to May 20th, 2018)
Presented at Hair Research Society 2018. )
*1: D Clinic Tokyo will start on July 9th (Tuesday), and D Clinic Sapporo/Shinjuku/Nagoya/Osaka/Fukuoka will start on July 10th (Wednesday).

– * Conducted research to enhance the expression of
sulfotransferase gene to enhance the hair growth effect of minoxidil * Minoxidil is effective against androgenic alopecia (AGA) and female pattern hair loss:
This is a drug used externally to treat FPHL). It is metabolized into the active form by sulfotransferase in vivo and exerts its medicinal effects. Additionally, there are reports that the hair growth effect of minoxidil is low when sulfotransferase activity in the scalp is low. Therefore, we thought that it might be possible to enhance the hair growth effect of minoxidil by increasing sulfotransferase activity in the scalp, and we were conducting research.
and the European Hair Research Society held in Bologna, Italy from May 18th to May 20th, 2018.
In 2018, we announced the discovery of “arrowroot extract” and “gentian extract” as natural ingredients that enhance the expression of sulfotransferase genes. Nine types of plant-derived ingredients were added to human epidermal keratinocytes, and the intracellular sulfotransferase “Sulfotranasferase” was added to human epidermal keratinocytes.
As a result of analyzing the expression of the “1A1 (SULT1A1) gene”, concentration-dependent enhancement of the expression of the SULT1A1 gene was confirmed in “kudzu root extract” and “gentian extract”.

– *Grow faster, more and thicker hair with the new hair growth effect* At D Clinic, we have been conducting research since 2018, believing that if we can increase sulfotransferase activity in the scalp by administering “arrow root extract” and “gentian extract,” we may be able to enhance the hair growth effect of minoxidil. As a result, we have now started a new treatment. Minoxidil does not have any effect just by applying it; it only becomes effective in growing hair through the action of sulfotransferase. The unique treatment (scalp lotion) newly introduced at D Clinic aims to increase the
sulfotransferase and enhance the hair growth effect. Contains highly concentrated natural plant ingredients such as “Kudzu Root Extract” and “Gentiana Extract,” as well as a uniquely developed soy milk fermentation liquid, to achieve both efficacy and safety.
In fact, when we verified the effect of combining D Clinic’s unique scalp lotion with topical minoxidil, the expression of
sulfotransferase was 5.7 times higher in the group using minoxidil + scalp lotion than in the group not using scalp lotion. The results show that the increase in (Apply scalp lotion before applying topical medication). By increasing the hair growth effect of minoxidil, it is possible to grow hair faster, in more quantity, and thicker. – *Treatment plan*
