  1. No hood to be over zealous. Just trying to find out if anyone had any first hand experience. I have no relationship to the product whatsoever.
  2. I can second a great experience with Dr. Cooley!

    Topical Finasteride + Minoxidil

    Thanks. Too bad if that's true as it prevents me from donating blood (must wait 1 month before donating for finasteride, and 6 months for avodart). Thanks

    Topical Finasteride + Minoxidil

    Thanks for posting the article, I looked on the forum for this topic after seeing it basically copied here: http://www.defymedical.com/resources/health-articles/325-topical-minoxidil-fortified-with-finasteride-an-account-of-maintenance-of-hair-density-after-replacing-oral-finasteride I too would be interested in learning more about this and if it is available. Anyone?
  5. Thanks Mue, Scooter! 2youngforthis - I don't have the best photos that really show the improvement, but to me it's amazing, and my wife really likes it. The first photo here is before my first one done back in 1996 (about ~1,000 grafts, a lot back then) when I was in my early 30's, the second set is before the work that was done last April (at age 50) with Dr. Cooley. He and his team are amazing.
  6. It's January 29, 2015, about 9.5 months post op. Very happy with the work Dr. Cooley and his team have done! Now ready for Spring.
