  1. Has anyone had experience with this stuff? Hairgenics Pronexa Clinical Strength Hair Growth & Regrowth Therapy Hair Loss Shampoo With Biotin, Collagen, and DHT Blockers for Thinning Hair I've been using for months. Seems to be ok, but it's expensive. Anyone else confident in it's ability to prevent hair loss? Or any other suggestions?
  2. Getting better every day! All work was done to frontal hairline.
  3. Is it safe? I’m all healed up and showing good growth.
  4. @hairlossPA glad you asked 🙂 I’m very happy with the hairline density at only 4.5 months! I’m going out without any concealer or hat at this point and feeling confident. I’m a little concerned about the density on top and on crown at the moment. Dr Cooley assured me those areas should see improvement around 9-12 months, considering I got the PRP Acell treatment, as well as started finasteride and daily minox. I’m debating whether or not to continue Nugenix testosterone booster in case that’s contributing. I’m hoping a lot of it is shock loss.
  5. Hey all. 4 month update! I'm finally feeling confident enough to go out without a hat! Density is getting substantial enough that with a little help from a concealer, I've got a solid hairline! If it's already doing this well, I'm excited to see the next 8 months of progress!

  7. Thanks for the encouragement @HLPToronto! I've only have frontal HT. Might consider the crown if I don't see results from PRP Acell, Fin, biotin, collagen and Minox over the next year. I'm ok with a little thinning back there so long as it's not a shiny reflection dome ha! As my wife reminds me, I'm 6'5", so few people can even see up there. Aside from the treatments mentioned above, any recommendations on helping growth?
  8. I'm hoping to be on the verge of seeing some real growth. If I squint I can't kind of imagine the hairline, and it's definitely bit thicker than 3 months ago. I'm hoping the PRP Acell as well as the rogaine twice a day and finasteride will thicken the crown, where I didn't have FUT. Dr. Cooley feels confident I should see some thickening there. I've also added biotin, collagen and Pronexa shampoo to my regimen. More to come!
  9. Here's a 3 month update! STARTING to see little follicles and if I squint I can imagine the impending hairline. Started using Hairgenics shampoo, biotin supplement, and cologen. Anything to support the cause.
  10. @jj51702 I'm taking nugenix for a few reason. 1, to offset some sexual side effects of a few other meds (lexapro, finasteride) but also to help slim down and tone muscle. Mostly the libido part though, which I can confirm is working 😂 I ran it by Cooley and he said give it a year, if hair loss is prevalent, we can switch to dutasteride (assuming i wanted to stay on testosterone)
  11. @xadiohead that's just what Cooley prescribed. It's a 5mg pill split in 3's and taken monday, wednesday and friday. But now I'm curious and will ask him about dutasteride. Thanks!
  12. @Raphael84 thank you ! That good to hear because even thought I was warned about shock loss I still worried that things look worse! Patience commence.
  13. This is 4 weeks out from 2000 grafts with Cooley in the front sides. This amount of shedding is normal, right? Just want to make sure the testosterone supplement (Nugenix) isn’t the cause. Been in that about a week, but taking 1.25mg of finasteride 3 times week. Just need some reassurance :)
  14. 4 Week Update! So all has healed up well. The stitches are out and the donor strip no longer feels tight. As you can see, shedding has begun as expected. Gotta say I got kinda attached to those transplanted follicles haha. But excited for new growth! Gonna be wearing a hat for a while longer, as it's in the awkward adolescence stage.
  15. @RecessionProof very cool! How many grafts did you get and with which doc? Be curious to see photos.
