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 before and after results from Finasteride and/or Minoxidil treatment. Most patients take both medications (brand names Propecia and Rogaine, respectively).
Before and after Finasteride photos from Dr. Collins’ website. And one more with just the crown.
