I’ve had issues with hair loss cause my ferritin was very low. I know that you ferritin levels need to be around 70 for regrowth. I’ve been taking iron supplement and now my levels are currently at 66 and my question is how long does it take for for your hair to regrow again after […]
I am 22 years old. I have been balding a lot since I was sixteen. This made me depressive from time to time and fucked up my confidence. I started Fin eight months ago. No sides yet, but there are moments in which it scares the fuck out of me. After thinking for years about […]
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2019/06/28/hair-grown-skin-using-stem-cells-breakthrough-could-cure-baldness/ Based on what I understand about their technology, the article significantly overstates things. Several other big skin groups are trying to make human hairs from cells, but it is very hard and hairs are not desirable scalp hairs.
A brief rundown of my first ever consultation. The whole thing lasted less than 30 minutes. I filled out a couple questionnaires and then met with a “counselor.” They estimated I was a great candidate due to limited loss and strong donor hair and I would need 1500 or less grafts with FUT. I asked […]
Follicular Unit Excision (new name) was pioneered by me in the mid to late 1990s. I published the first article in the world on this surgery in 2002. This is a great surgery if the surgeon knows how to do it. Fortunately today, there are many surgeons who have mastered it; however, there is a […]
Thanks so much I really appreciate this. So the questions are… 1. How common/rare is propecia in causing (a) prostate cancer, (b) breast cancer, (c) Gynecomastia, (d) infertility? Finasteride does not cause prostate cancer. There is a risk of Gynecomastia which is rare and infertility which is very rare. 2. By taking the propecia it is […]
I want to say that, I used Rogaine a month ago. I applied it only 3 times, mainly due to the headaches, heart palpitations and dizziness. Since stopping I have had hair coming out like crazy. People at work have noticed and I’ve noticed dark circles under my eyes and a puffy face. Stay away […]
Well you should never have had a transplant that young especially with this much hair loss. Any good doctor would never do this because the potential for you to keep going bald is too high. In other words, you only have 6000-7000 transplantable grafts total. You may not have grafts to cover future loss later. […]
I am beginning to notice a trend of accelerated hair loss during certain times of the year, particularly in the winter months. I’m from western Pennsylvania and as such we experience all four seasons, with winters fluctuating from brutal to mild all in the same season. I’ve noticed that my hair looks much more thicker […]
They say a picture is worth 1000 words. Clearly finasteride has had a remarkable impact on this young man. The dose of topical finasteride was subsidized with the oral finasteride so it is difficult to tell which drug did the most for him. I will prescribe Topical finasteride 2.5% with 2% minoxidil in solution and […]
How do you know this? Any evidence you can provide? Anecdotally on Reddit and hair forums – you read hundreds of posts of people “sprouting new mini hairs” (ie at the hairline), after starting finasteride, minoxidil, and more recently – dermarolling. These hairs may not necessarily be fully miniaturized – but they certainly are thinner […]
I have always grown a full mustache but mine started disappearing little by little. I only grow one side and the other is as smooth as a babies bottom. what sucks so much about is that I have to keep up with shaving one side so you cant see it growing in and looks like […]
The pattern shown in this photo shows that the grafts were removed with FUE in two stripes and will cause a see-through donor area when the hair grows out particularly if he cuts his hair short. The lower FUE harvest seems to come from the neck which is not permanent hair.
Did my dermatologist prescribe Finasteride too liberally ? Context : 27 y/o. Father and his 4 brothers have full heads of hair. Mother’s side : 3 out of 4 bald uncles. They were bald in their early twenties. I went to the derm two weeks ago. He didn’t look closely at me or do a hair count. […]
This is called sublingual dosing of a drug. For some medications, slow action is better than fast action, especially for drugs that drop the blood pressure or have heart effects that are supposed to be taken as a pill.
