I am wondering what steps I should undertake to try to fix the issue with my hair? (Photo)

what steps can I undertake to fix the issue with my hair? should I take propecia and monoxodil or should I be looking to have a hair transplant? Although the pictures are not so clear, it seems I am losing hair over the complete surface area of my head as oppossed to just one area

the first step is to find a qualified hair restoration specialist in your area and get a consultation. During the consultation the doctor should find the cause for your hair loss, do a detailed evaluation and give recommendation for a comprehensive plan that may include surgical and medical treatment option that best fits your concerns.

Your photo shows a full head of hair and it really does not help with a diagnosis or treatment option.

If you believe you have issues with your hair and want a medical recommendation, see a doctor in person.  Your photo shows a full head of hair and it really does not help with a diagnosis or treatment option.

Hair loss is due to many factors but in our practice, medications and injections like PRP and progesterone really help.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Hair loss in early stages

You are not a candidate for surgery regardless of the cause.


Certainly there is 99 % chance you hair loss is from genetic hair loss but if you truly believe you have diffuse hair loss (hair loss all over), I'd encourage you to get a comprehensive consultation.

There are a few causes of diffuse loss other than male balding. Most men with hair loss don't need blood tests.

An exception is those men with diffuse loss. In these sutuations, I recommend a basic profile including hemoglobin, iron, thyroid and a few hormones


If it truly is genetic hair loss, consider steps to slow or stop with

  1. finasteride
  2. laser
  3. minoxidil
  4. platelet rich plasma

Steps to undertake to fix questionable hair loss?

Steps to undertake to fix questionable hair loss?  You should do nothing now. You look like you have a full head of hair and should not start any surgical treatment.  If you are a maie you can start Propecia for crown hair loss which gives good results in many patients.

There are several treatment options

We offer our patients several different hair loss treatment options depending on the severity of your hair loss. We see a lot of success with the NeoLts Light Therapy treatment combined with HairMedica at home hair loss kit. I would consider a combined treatment plan with those two options. 

Hair loss at an early age

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Is difficult to tell from your pictures if you are male or female. I'm assuming by your name that you are male. 95% of hair loss in males is due to a genetic predisposition called androgenic alopecia. Treatment for androgenic alopecia at the early stage includes propecia, minoxidil, low level laser microneedle rolling and platelet rich plasma. We have had excellent results in treating young individuals with platelet rich plasma. It is not a permanent cure however it does thicken the hair, decrease loss and regrow hair in certain individuals. I would seek a physician who has expertise in hair loss so that they can determine the exact etiology of your hair loss. The above is only a estimate and should not replace a formal consultation. Hope this helps. Good luck

Can you please let me know if you are male or female and also the exact area where you feel that you suffer from hair loss. It is important to have more information before determining if you are in surgery stage or if its best for now to work with treatments first.

You sent many photos but it is not clear what you are talking about. You did not state your sex (man or woman) nor what are the problems you are asking about. See a good doctor about whatever problems you think you have
