What can be done to stop or reverse miniaturization. I am a 65 year old female. Just in the past year, my hairs are so thin, you can barely see them in the sink. I’m on 5% minox with propecia added (my Dr.just started this 3 wks ago).
Female genetic balding is a process that does impact women of your age. It starts with miniaturization of the hair. Minoxidil does slow it down, but there is no evidence that Propecia (finasteride) will have any effect. I have reviewed a number of studies on Propecia in women and the general conclusions by respected researchers and clinicians is that there is no benefit for women except those with known Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which is not the case here.
