Hair loss at a young age

You should see a hair restoration physician for a consultation and microscopic evaluation.  The microscopic evaluation will show the degree of thinning and the location of thinning.  Based on this, decisions can be made with respect to starting you on another medication if the minoxidil is not working.  Based on your family history, quality of hair, and the current microscopic evaluation a master plan regarding your future hair needs will be discussed with you.

Hair Loss Treatment Basics--Minoxidil with Progesterone and PRP

Please see a hair specialist to discuss the best treatment options for you. PRP with Progesterone injections done for a series on a monthly basis can help improve this, but hair loss is genetic.

Hair loss in 22 year old

Your biggest enemy is the progressive thinning leading to a balding pattern that is not evident at this point in time. The degree of thinning that you are experiencing would suggest that you should see a doctor who most likely will get Bulk Measurements of your hair to determine the degree of the thinning that you are presently having. If the diagnosis is early genetic hair loss (the most common cause of hair loss in young men), then the best treatment would be the drug finasteride which is highly effective in men of your age and may not only stop the hair loss but possibly reverse it. If you are developing a more advanced balding pattern the HAIRCHECK test will determine the Bulk Measurements of your hair and put a number on that hair loss (a metric) and this will show, over a one-year time frame, how effective the treatment will be. Once you know this information, then you and your doctor need to develop a MASTER PLAN which will define what you need to do over the years to come.
