Early Male Pattern Hair Loss Without Finasteride
Male age 25 at consultation, age 26 at follow up
Age of onset of hair loss – 19
This young man has very high DHT-sensitivity and aggressive pattern hair loss as he started losing hair at the age of 19. He did not seek treatment for his hair loss until age 25, and had not been on any hair loss medication prior to this, so his hair loss was already pretty advanced.
He had one TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment, and was prescribed finasteride, but finasteride wasn’t used. Finasteride is prescribed for male Hair Regeneration patients who are highly DHT-sensitive, especially for patients in their 20s or younger, and the treatment is not a finasteride replacement.
TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration can get more scalp coverage and density than a hair transplant, even in patients too young for transplant, and in some who are highly DHT-sensitive but didn’t take the prescribed finasteride.
14 months after the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment alone, he had a dramatic increase of hair coverage throughout his scalp. This type of hair density that cannot be achieved by a hair transplant because natural hair density is more tightly placed than any number of hair transplants can achieve. A hair transplant would have also resulted in permanent collateral loss of his existing hair since he still had a lot of thin native hair is present.
