  1. Have you noticed any enhancements? Hair growing faster, thicker, etc?
  2. THis looks like it’s comong along really well Ellen. Did you shed a lot?
  3. Have you noticed any enhancements from fin? I’ve been debating about trying it and have it on hand, just wonder if it helps improve or Make hair feel better(if that’s makes sense)
  4. Did you get a script for it? I’m wanting to try it but not sure where to buy it from
  5. Have you noticed any improvements/enhancements from it?
  6. Thank you for the response. I’m thinking about trying the oral version. Do you know a reputable online store that I can buy it from? Or where I can buy it?
  7. I read you took oral minox in your thread. Did you see better improvement with it vs topical?
  8. I’m just about to start. Did you notice any enhancements from it? Also do you take any other vitamins/supplements with it? I have the same hairloss/thinning on my hairline as you did pre-op.
  9. Looks awesome so far! Are you on fin? If you are, do you take it in the am or pm?
  10. I’m interested in trying oral minoxidil. Have you seen noticeable improvements? Also can anyone help direct me to a reputable place to buy oral minoxidil online? I’m in the u.s. thanks in advance
  11. Thank you for her informative reply! Does h and w believe that someone getting a transplant should be on finasteride prior to the surgery to prevent shock loss or does it vary by individual? I also see that h&w has a clinic in Seattle? That would be perfect Since I’m close to the Seattle area
  12. How long does it normally take to see the positive effects from it? If you don’t mind answering, how long have be been on it?
  13. Thank you for your reply. Does name brand matter or generic okay? Also did you start on 1mg right away? I’m just asking cause I was recommended to start on .5mg and then work my way up to 1. Just wanting to get your thoughts on it. That’s awesome if it can thicken one’s hair, my biggest worry has been that finasteride makes hairloss worse for some reason. I only have a thinning hairline and no bald spots but I guess my fear is that I’ll look worse after taking it than before(if that’s makes sense)
  14. So it’s best to take/try finasteride before a procedure? Does it strengthen the native hair and that’ll help with shock loss? Also what would the best time be to take finasteride, upon waking or before bed?
  15. Amazing results! Was this done by forceps or an implanter pen? Is one better than the other for maximum density?
  16. I can attach some pictures when I get off of work but it was pretty severe. I had scaling and bad inflammation and I’d lose hair with scales attach to the end of them. I’ve since then gone to a dermatologist and used ciclopirox(antifungal) clobestol solution(for the inflammation) and oral antifungal. It’s gotten way better and hair thickness has gotten better, just the hair line has been coming back slowly but unsure if it’ll come back to how it use to be. The consultations I’ve had I’ve been told that it’s mild mpb but that the seborrheic derm could have sped up the process of my hairline thinning. If that makes sense
  17. thank you very much. i have been doing a lot of research because of this site and its awesome members that seem to help everyone and pretty much positive and uplifting for the most part. i guess im just pretty nervous because you never think itll happen to you until it does and ive never have had sugery before.
  18. do you think he would be a good choice? also i was recommended that i should take finasteride by both gabel and varona. im 31 and have never had hair loss prior until last year when i got seborrheic dermitis on my hairline, i have been dealing with it and my hair seems to be coming back in thicker but the hair line is taking a lot longer and not sure if itll come back to how i was before
  19. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, can you elaborate on him needing more grafts? he quoted me at 1600 but said if he went over it would be at no additional charge and he uses implanters and does a lot of the work himself. As you pointed out, i like him because he seems dedicated and caring as well.
  20. Hey guys, first time poster, this site has helped me so much in becoming informed and well researched in hair loss and with helping choosing a doctor based on patient reviews and experiences. ive had a couple of consultations with dr gabel, and have one coming up with rahal and have had one with dr christopher varona so far. i will continue to do my due diligence, and seek other consultations. i really liked doctor varona and his price per graft fue($7) is the same as doctor gabel, he didnt try to up-sell me, or sound like a salesman. He's not on the recommended doctors on this website as the ones that im going to have consultations with but was just hoping to get some advice and feedback on what you guys think? my english isnt very good, so my apologies in advance if this post is hard to read or understand. thank you.
