Answer Snippet
Can I expect more growth as my hairline density seems very low after 8 months of my FUE HT?
Yes, you can expect more
Aug 15, 2021
It takes time for the hair to grow after the transplant. At 6-8 months you should see anywhere from 40-50%. It can take up to 18 months to see your final results. So far it looks appropriate for the time frame.
Can I take Finasteride and Dutasteride together? And should I wait till I’m 30+ years old before tra

Most of dermatologist said I have female pattern hair loss (I started oral minoxidil)?
More options for female pattern hair loss.
Mar 9, 2021
Minoxidil is only one treatment and certainly not the strongest. With female pattern hair loss platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a very strong and successful solution along with laser therapy and exosomes (very new and some what controversial). Also lab tests would be included in the evaluation. Many dermatologists just don’t want to take the time to keep up with the new treatments. This is not a criticism, they have so much other things to focus on, to take an hour for an evaluation is very t…
