My Hair Loss Story
Started losing hair at 16. it bothered me tremendously before i found propecia at 18 which filled things in a little and stabilized my loss. but now propecia is starting to lose its effictiveness just a little and i wanted an HT to fill in my temples. i dabbled wtih rogaine, which i will restart in ernest after the HT, and a bunch of other vitamins, supplements and laser therapy. i understand hairloss is a lifelong issue and it will require contant management until i am too old to care anymore
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
propecia without a doubt saved me from being totally bald already. i have not had any real side effects
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
just happened a couple days ago but the doctor and staff were great and the hairline looks fantastic. i do worry that they didnt put enough density in. i have about 40 grafts/cm and i wanted closer to 50 but the doctor didnt think it necessary. if its not enough then i can go back for another proecture
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
get on propecia for atleast 3-5 years before thinking about an HT
