18 years old, what to do?
I have have a really bad, receding hairline with dense hair and no crown problems. I was going to start minoxidil and add finasteride in 2 to 3 years since I still haven’t finished my puberty. I really want to try to recover my hairline, the thing is, I am okay with getting a HT in a few years.
I often prescribe finasteride to 18 years old men. This drug often works very well with a high degree of reversal. If after one year it doesn’t reverse, add oral minoxidil to your routine and worst case, add microneedling 6 months after than it it doesn’t work. Actually, I don’t think that the first or second will fail. A hair transplant is out of the question for at least 7 years and by that time, if you don’t treat it now, you may bald far more than you see now.
