  • Current Non-Surgical Treatment Regime
  1. Using Gravimetric Analysis1 ?volis ONE has shown a statistically significant 80.2% reduction in hair loss over 112 days (16 weeks) with twice daily use. Hair differentiation (or anagen/telogen ratio, a measure of growing versus resting hair follicles) improved with an increase of 44.2% in growing follicles during the same period, as analysed by the Van Scott “hair pluck” method2. Hair release and recovery (overall improvement in hair quality and volume) was quantified by PhotoGrammetrix™3 measurements and has shown an improvement by a statistically significant 143.3%. The trial was conducted by AMA Laboratories, INC. in New York, a leading independent CRO specialising in dermatological product testing
  2. Hey guys what do you think of that new product from australia? http://www.evolisproducts.com.au/evo...evolis-for-men Evolis comes from Cellmid who is a really serious biotech company. There is some scientific evidence behind it http://www.evolisproducts.com.au/sci...c-publications , I Wonder if it could work well along propecia. Maybe better that minox no, what do you think?
  3. Guys I need some advices please. I would like to know if some of you had a Hair transplant directly without seeing the doc few months before for the first consultation? I mean Schedule the operation by mail and have the first consultation just one day before the surgery. All the guys that go in turkey, india, etc.. they just do one travel is that right? So they take the risk without a real donor aera evaluation? Am i right? I have a top doc in belgium who offers me to directly Schedule a surgery with the consultation one day before? I would like to do that so I don't have to do 2 travels, but it scares me cause I don't have a real good donor area. Please could you tell me if you have informations or exp?riences about that thanks guys and sorry for my bad English, not my native language;)
  4. One thing to add, in my donor aera, you can see that all the hair are not at the same lenght, but it's because I shaved myself and forgot some aeras^^
  5. Hi everyone, I'm french so escuse my english writting. I come to this forum cause I think it's the best place for good advices. To resume, I'm 27, losing my hair since Im 20. I tried propecia and minox in the beginning for more than a year but stopped quickly cause the loss continued. ( I didn't have side effects, so I want to take duta or fina again prior the hair transplant) All my hair on top don't grow anymore, so I will have a large zone to cover. the problem is that I have a poor donor aera, not really dense. But well it's quite normal i think cause during the last 5 years I did the worst things for my hair health : no propecia, no sport, really bad eating/diet, a lot of smoke, many months on anti depressant, a lot of stress, no regularly shampoo, lot of sebum production in my hair with some dermatitis sometimes,etc... well all the worst things, so I think it's normal that my horse shoe isn't going really well no? What is the minimum of donor aera grafts approx. for a person with a bad donor area you think? I plan to use my FUs for the front and mildscalp, and if possible use bht to densify the vertex, do you think it's possible in my case? How much grafts do I need approx. for a decent result with a conservative approach? Does legs hairs are also good for bht to put in the crown? If i take propecia, changes my way of life for healthy hair, and use maximum of my UFs, do you think it's even too risky to go the ht route with my severe hairloss? or is it possible that I will live a few years with a quite decent haircut? I plan to do smp if the result isn't good one year later, for a buzz cut (densify the ht), or for a complete shaved look it depends. and perahp's during that time there will be innovation in HT, or in medication. Or even a stem cell therapy in 5,10,20 years^^ So it's good to try a big FUE/BHT no? even if i'm not the good candidate? what would you do in my case? I need to do something, it's ruining my social life and depressed me, I tell myself " what I have to loose? except money of course", if it can help me for 2 or 3 years, I will enjoy that. So what I have to loose again? Am i going crazy or is my plan realistic guys? Did you see others with a thin donor aera who get a transplant with decent result? Thanks in advance for the probable help. I really think it's here that I can get the best advices. a french dude
