Treatment of late onset of hair loss without finasteride
Male, age 47 (at time of consultation)
Age of onset undetermined
This 47-year-old man could only say his hair loss has been progressing over many years, but his pattern was not aggressive as he said it happened slowly. He didn’t take finasteride or any other hair loss treatments prior to consultation.
Increased hair density and growth is seen at the frontal hairline, while hair coverage at the mid-scalp and crown increased. Darker hair is a common side effect of the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment.
He had one TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment, and was not prescribed finasteride as his DHT-sensitivity was moderate as evidenced by slow and late progression. He was photographed again one year after treatment, and showing increased fullness at his hairline, and increased density at the mid-scalp and crown area. His darker hair color is a side effect commonly seen in the treatment.
Hair growth at the hairline significantly increased in visible density and thickness, with the added side effect of darker hair growth. Bald spots throughout the scalp are minimized.
The TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment is not a substitute for finasteride, but men with slow and later onset of hair loss are not as highly DHT-sensitive as men with early and rapid hair loss. Need for finasteride with less DHT-sensitive patients is decided on a case-by-case basis.
