I’m 9 1/2 months into Propecia 1mg a day treatment and everything is about the same since I started. I’m currently a NW2 but under miniaturization I have a NW3 with mid anterior thinning. Right now I have early frontal loss all I needed is thickening of miniaturized hairs and that would give me a way fuller look. I’m 22 1/2 year old guy and started Propecia only like 4 months or so after I noticed I’m losing hair so I would be a candidate for reversal but now it looks slim because I’m close to hit that 1 year mark! Is there a still a chance? The reason I want to have those hairs thicken because I’m very worried if Propecia would lose effectiveness and MPB will start again those hairs will be gone before I know it but if they would thickened up I could at least spot it that I’m losing hair again and do something about it and also I want to do different hairstyles!
Sorry to break this to you, but there is no cure for male pattern baldness (MPB) and no guarantee that Propecia will work on you. There’s a new genetic test to determine if finasteride (Propecia) will be of benefit to you — HairDX Tests for Finasteride Response.
Propecia does work, but it is not the cure and will not completely stop hair loss. The drug very rarely reverses hair loss in the frontal area, but you should be able to retain the hair you had (which is what it sounds like it’s doing if you say everything is the same 9 months later). You need to sit down with your prescribing doctor and have a discussion on realistic expectations.
