I’m a month shy from becoming 22 years old and yet have already early signs of frontal hair loss. And nobody had hair loss in my family except my father but not until his 30s! So I got a miniturization study done by Dr. Bernstein and he said it’s signficant for my age. He did tell me that Propecia will work for me and my hair should reverse to how it was up to 1 year ago (it was really good then). I don’t doubt the doctor but even if Propecia does work for me, can it retain what I have for many years till I’m like 30 or so? Or is that too big of a dream?
Some men report that Propecia gives them long term results, while others report some reduction of value where it seems to be less effective around the 5-6 year mark in retaining their hair. This doesn’t mean it stops working, but that your body is progressing along its genetic track for hair loss. On the other hand, I’ve had patients that have been taking it for 10+ years without any progression of the balding. So what I’m getting as is that each person is different, and I couldn’t say one way or another whether you will have great results, no results, lasting results, etc.
I’d expect that if you’ve seen Dr Bernstein and he says Propecia is a wise choice for you, that you should follow his advice.
