8 months ago I was at Dr. Bernstein and under miniaturization he said I have MPB. Right now I’m a NW2 but with early frontal hair loss. And I’m 22 1/2 years old. I been on Propecia daily for 8 months and everything is about the same. I keep reading that you should see all of your results by 8 months! I called Dr. Bernstein today and asked him if what I see are my final results and he said I gotta wait a full year and it may even take up to 2 years to see the full benefits. This is exciting to know but why do you always says 8 months is the optimal time for full results!?
I tell patients not to expect results from Propecia for 8 months, but suggest a 1-2 year waiting time for maximum results. Merck (Propecia’s maker) has a chart that shows when to expect results, though they show that by month 3 you could get some slowing of the hair loss. See Propeca.com for more.
