Prior finasteride use with TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration
Male age 23 (at consultation) Age of onset of hair loss - 21This man was experiencing diffuse hair thinning all over his scalp, and temporal hair recession starting at 21. He was taking finasteride due this his high DHT-sensitivity, and slow his hair thinning for more than one year prior to his consultation. 4 months after one TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment, his frontal hairline was significantly thicker, and temples had visibly more hair coverage. Hair quality and thickness throughout his scalp was improved, and he remarked how his hair felt healthier.TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration can increase frontal hair density, notably on patients already on finasteride.This study illustrates that stimulated hair growth and thicker hair cannot be achieved with finasteride alone, and that the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration system works at a different level than finasteride. This also shows that combining the finasteride with the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment as an effective combination treatment for male pattern hair loss.TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration can thicken thinning hair, and restore healthy hair texture and growth, even on patients already taking finasteride.
Early Male Pattern Hair Loss Without Finasteride
Male age 25 at consultation, age 26 at follow up Age of onset of hair loss - 19This 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.
Scalp Micropigmentation with Hair Loss
Male age 32 (at consultation) Age of onset of hair loss - 2732-year-old man was concerned about hair thinning due to pattern hair loss after previously having scalp micropigmentation, a scalp tattoo procedure to camouflage the effects of balding. The effects of progressive pattern hair loss made the small tattoos on his scalp more obvious.Progressive pattern hair loss left a 32-year-old man with almost no hair coverage at this area of his hairline, making his scalp micropigmentation look obvious.5 months after his TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment, where he was also prescribed finasteride, pictures were taken of his results. He was happy with his new hair growth at the frontal hairline, which was previously receding and unveiling his scalp micropigmentation.One session of the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment increased hair growth and thickened thinning hair at the hairline, making micropigmentation less noticeable, and greater hair density without surgery.
Treatment of late onset hair loss without finasteride
Male age 49 at time of consultation Hair loss started about 10 years agoThis 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.
Male age 23 (at time of consultation) Age of onset of hair loss - 21A 23-year-old man was noticing hair thinning for the past couple of years at his hairline and temple areas, but never decided to take finasteride or use minoxidil to treat it. He came in for consultation, and then received one TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment as well as a prescription for finasteride.More hair growth was noticed in the frontal hairline, with hair throughout growing thicker and with healthier texture after the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment.12 months after the treatment and starting finasteride, he had thicker hair growth at his frontal hairline, including very short and fine hairs at his temple now growing long and thick.Very fine hairs at the temple area now growing thicker and longer after the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment.
Improving hair coverage after multiple hair transplants
Male age 39 (at time of consultation) Age of onset of hair loss - 17Man had 3 FUT (strip) hair transplants, and 2 FUE hair transplants before he had his first consultation with us at age 39. Although he has been highly DHT-sensitive throughout his adult life, with evidence showing with pattern hair loss at 17, he was only on finasteride 5 years prior to his consultation. With his multiple transplants and rapid rate of hair loss progression, he adopted a short hairstyle to blend his thin native hair with thicker transplanted hairThicker hair growth after the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment allowed this 40-year-old man to have a longer hairstyle, as he previously kept his short to blend thicker transplanted hair with thin native hair.He had the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration at age 39. 14 months after a single treatment, at age 40, he achieved thicker and stronger hair that allowed him to wear a longer hairstyle. He claimed that his hair has not felt this healthy in 20 years.Thicker hair after the TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration treatment thickened the mix of transplanted and native hair at the frontal hairline, giving a more natural-looking hair densityThis case shows that hair thickness and density can still be improved years after early and aggressive pattern hair loss, and with both native and transplanted hair.Multiple transplants spaced widely apart, and thin native hair left this man with little hair density. With the Hair Regeneration thickening grafted and native hair, and improving overall hair health, he was able to grow a longer hairstyle and get more hair coverage throughout the head.
Treatment of late onset of hair loss without finasteride
Male, age 47 (at time of consultation) Age of onset undeterminedThis 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.
