Treatment of late onset hair loss without finasteride
Male age 49 at time of consultation
Hair loss started about 10 years ago
This 49-year-old man started suffering from hair loss about 10 years prior, so age of onset was pretty late, and his sensitivity to DHT would be classified as moderate. Hair thinning was diffuse throughout the scalp, as well as the temples. He wasn’t on a DHT-blocker like finasteride prior to treatment.
Hair at the scalp and crown grew back thicker 10 months after one TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment. As DHT-sensitivity is not as high in later age of onset of hair loss, finasteride was not prescribed.
He received one TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment. Since his age of onset was later, and he is not highly DHT-sensitive, using finasteride after treatment was not as critical. He was able to achieve thicker hair growth and greater hair coverage 10 months after treatment, without using finasteride.
Thicker, longer hair growth was achieved in the frontal hairline from miniaturized hairs and dormant follicles. Darker hair growth can be a side effect of the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment.
Finasteride is almost always prescribed for men with high DHT-sensitivity, such as those who start losing hair in their late teens, 20s, and early 30s. However men who start losing hair in their late 30s and older are less DHT-sensitive, so a DHT-blocker like finasteride is not always necessary on a case-to-case basis.
