Lighting is different between photos but it looks like you had an amazing reaction to meds. Norwood 3 possibly.


I would not bother with a HT at this stage, not at age 22. Better to wait a few years.

4,312 FUT grafts (7,676 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - August 2013

1,145 FUE grafts (3,152 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - August 2018

763 FUE grafts (2,094 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - January 2020

Proscar 1.25mg every 3rd day

You had significant improvement in the front and back. The frontal hairs look very weak and thin in the before pictures and now they are obviously thicker and fuller. The crown also refilled. You are a candidate for an HT, you should get it, just get the HT and get hair loss out of your way and move on with your life. All you will do in the next few years is look in the mirror everyday to see if finasteride and minoxidil is still working. If you get an HT, you most likely won't obsessively be looking in the mirror, only to style your hair. Do it and move is my advice.

Looks like you experienced a pretty dramatic response to the medications. Seems like it may be a good idea to continue!
