So, I put in my details and uploaded some photos to some surgeon, and they suggested not doing surgery, but actually doing a combination of topical finasteride and minoxidil for 8 months first, and suggest that they've had patients do really well with this combo, plus PRP.
I am a bit skeptical. I did 14 months of minoxidil + microneedling before surgery, and while I did see some mild benefits, the key word there is mild. The Hair Transplant was a real game changer.
Does anyone have real success with adding in topical finasteride to a minoxidil + microneedling regime?
Thanks! Yeah, I was a bit skeptical at first even with still having some miniaturizing hairs but after they shed and when I began microneedling, for such a short time frame I think it’s filling in well so far.
I think anything that helps increase circulation to the scalp safely is worth a shot, haven’t tried PRP as I have yet to see any compelling results but in combination with microneedling it might help.
You should make a post of your PRP & microneedling progress, would be interesting to see.
