Before and After Finasteride and Minoxidil Photos

While we await a true cure, for those who have not lost too much of their hair yet, taking the combination of Finasteride and Minoxidil can often result in excellent results.  For those who have already lost a lot of hair, with rare exceptions, modest regrowth and maintenance are unfortunately the best you can hope for with these medications.

My recent post on collecting Dutasteride testimonials made me realize that I should write this post for people who are highly skeptical of Finasteride.  Dutasteride, if approved to treat hair loss, will certainly be superior to Finasteride (albeit with higher rates of side effects).

On this page, I will post links to before and after photos on various hair transplant surgeon’s websites of patients who have had good to great results from Finasteride and/or Minoxidil treatment.  Most patients take both medications.

    1. hi,
      First, you can try to use Minoxidil Foam which does not contain a certain ingredient which makes most of the troubles.
      Second, I don’t recommend you using Minoxidil but rather Finasteride – since most people don’t persist on the treatment with Minoxidil and the moment you stop you lose all the hair you gained and some more..

    2. Well…finasteride only inhibits DHT (primary factor for hair loss) and if you want hair re-growth you need something like minoxidil…so it will work as 50%

  1. spain, in my opinion, Finasteride is a lot better than Minoxidil, although also more likely to cause side effects due to its systemic inhibition of DHT.

    1. Hi,
      I am 22 years old. I’ve little frontal baldness and little on crown. And the baldness is going on.
      I want to use minoxidil and finasteride but I am worried about the above comments, because they causes to loss sexual power. So what should I do now? I need your opinion.
      Waiting for your reply….
      Thanks….!

        1. Hi Zahir you need to discuss with a doctor and then decide, plus read all the studies on the internet to see risks versus benefits.

          Minoxidil does not cause any sexual side effects.

      1. Zahoor…sexual effect is only with finasteride but not with Minoxidil…and that sexual effect is too only one percent. You can stop finasteride whenever you want to and you can restart the course

  2. if they could just fine tune dutasteride to only have a local effect… dayum, that would be monumental.. i personally think anything which affects the fertility of a male or female will be left untouched by the medical industry since we are overpopulating the planet.. hence why we only found out about finasterides side effects after forum member spoke up.. they want us infertile…

  3. I used fin for a year and minox for a year before that. Saw little results with minox and then after a year on fin, my scalp went to s***. Developed scalp pain, pimples along hairline, huge shed of hair. Had to quit and am waiting to recover still after three months.

  4. Hey admin,

    Can and should I use Minoxidil for temple point regrowth?

    I am restarting minoxidil after 4 or 5 months of not using (I started phasing it out since I thought that propecia would keep the ‘minox gains’) I lost some gains, especially on the hairline, but fortunately I did not go below my baseline.

    Penny for your thoughts? 🙂

    1. I have heard mixed testimonial for temple point regrowth with Minoxidil. If you have lost all your hair there, probably not worth trying. Also be careful that you do not put in on your forehead area by mistake!

  5. Thinking of starting propecia and minoxidil. My hair line isn’t receding, its just been thin for years every since I grew it out back in high school! I work with a doctor and spoke to him about possible side effects. I’m a little worried though to tell you the truth. Is it all worth it? Thoughts please.
