Hi, I’m considering a hair transplant, though I heard that Propecia and/or Rogaine can work better. Is this true?
Very rarely are there cut and dry answers when it comes to hair restoration. Therefore, the answer to this question is that it depends.
Propecia (Finasteride) and/or Rogaine (minoxodil) have a much higher chance of reversing the hair miniaturization process thus regrowing hair when a person hasn’t experienced a great amount of hair loss. For the majority of hair loss sufferers considering hair transplantation, hair loss medication should be tried first at the very least to maintain existing natural hair. Hair transplantation is typically not a viable option for younger patients who have only just started to experience hair loss. In fact, any hair transplant doctor that performs hair transplant surgery on a younger patient with minimal hair loss may be exposing the hair transplant patient to expedited hair loss if hair is being transplanted between a lot of natural hair. See shock loss for more details.
But for those hair loss sufferers who have greater balding patterns, Propecia and Rogaine combined cannot do what hair transplantation can do.
