Hi, I´m 20 years old. I´m using finasteride since two years and I
have a NW 6 pattern (Hair miniaturized on hairline, top and crown).
I´m sure that finasteride help me in this two years because my hair
is more consistent but I know that I am going to lose my hair
progressively. My question is if you know any case of a NW 6 pattern
who had started his treatment early and finasteride give him results
for a long time (10 years). I need some hope but I want the truth.
Thanks. Regards. Sorry for my english.
I have not seen a complete reversal of hair loss on Propecia on a Class 6 or 7 male your age. Mainly male pattern balding or androgenic alopecia is a genetic condition. When it shows up in the late teens or early 20s, the process is usually more rapid. The drug Propecia (finasteride) with or without Minoxidil may slow down the loss but they will not stop the inevitable pattern from evolving. Surgery can address the balding by moving hairs around to the balding areas but if your pattern is a Norwood 6 or 7 pattern, complete coverage may not be a reasonable goal for hair transplantation.
