Understanding Hair loss and hair loss treatment options: hair transplant, prp and progesterone
It can take 3-6 months for final results with Minoxidil and Finasteride and there can be an initial hair shed. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a hair loss expert to go over your test results, condition and advise you on best treatment options. In our office, we use progesterone and prp with great results. Hair transplantation is an alternative. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
You must continue to use this drug for at least a year to see value. The hair that you get will be dependent upon the minxodil so when you decide to stop it, what new hair you have may fall out
Hair loss with minoxidil.
It's normal to lose hair in the first 8 weeks of minoxidil treatment. If it extends beyond 12 weeks, that is concerning, but otherwise it is very normal. If you have limited hair loss 3 drops is appropriate or if he is concerned about any other issue that is appropriate too. Please see you doctor to review if you concerns persist.
