Propecia Patient Results (with Photos)

Dr. Rassman, I saw one of your comments on Propecia on the balding blog. You are welcome to use my pictures to show your bloggers what the drug can do. As you remember, I am 39 years old and I got these results in just 8 months on the drug. Contrary to what some say about the sex drive, the drug did nothing to suppress it. Sometimes I wish it did. I saw a couple of other doctors before I started Propecia and one had a salesman who tried to sell me 1500 grafts. He said Propecia would not work. Glad I did not have the surgery and listened to you guys.

Thanks for coming forward on this very important issue. The young man can get an outstanding response from Propecia, especially the ones under 30. You are an exception to the rule and a lucky one at that. Although sometimes I feel like a Merck salesman, because I suggest this medication for many of my patients, it is because of people like you that I have become an enthusiast for Propecia. Although the corners did not return, the fullness you wanted was achieved and you are happy. That is what this is all about. You were wise to seek out other opinions and I applaud you for such persistence. There is no “A” given in school for such decisions, and in the real world, the hairy guy you look at in the mirror every day is better than that “A” on a report card.

  1. Thanks for the comments Brian. Always great to have these personal stories to boost the spirit of those who are losing their hair.

  2. Im 22 and thinking about getting on finasteride. I still have hair to the point of having my head covered, however the rate at which I am losing it is fast. Will I have better results because of my age and (still present) hair?

  3. That does look a bit dodgy.

    i have been taking finax from dr reddys for 8 months or so , im not sure if i was just paranoid at the start when i noticed it thinning , but ican say 100% that it hasnt gotten any worse while on it , i can say it does look alot thicker on top and people have noticed its gotten better as they could obviosuly see the thinning before. i have been taking 1 tablet a day didnt cost a whole lot so worth a try , i will never give it up, my brother is thinning alot hes 3 years ahead of me so i can compare to him in 3 years

  4. The picture on the left has a skin marker outlined before hair transplant surgery. Transplant surgeons use this as a guide for restoring hairline. This result is fake.

  5. I started taking Finasteride 1mg daily exactly a year ago. I’m 21 years old now and I have noticed a very nice improvement on my hair. I used to look at my hair after a shower and noticed how thin it was and how I could see a lot of my scalp. I look in the mirror now and I actually feel a lot better about it because I can see that the hairs that I had actually got thicker.

    I also noticed that at the very front of my hairline my hair was really thin, like a golden light blond, now those same hairs are thicker and are my natural light brown color.

    I also noticed that using the same Camera I was using before I could notice scalp above my eye brows on my head, now when I take pictures I don’t see it anymore.

    It’s only been one year and I’ve noticed awesome results. It doesn’t work on the temples very well… My hairline around my temples has grown hair but its kinda fine and not as thick as normal hair, but any hair is good right?

    Honestly I can’t wait to see my results in 2, 3, 4 and 5 years. I read that there was a 5 year study on the drug and it continued to show good results! So the key thing is to start when you’re young and still have your hair, when you first notice Thinning and not a complete bald spot.

    No side effects whatsoever while on this drug, my libido is still as strong as ever and nothing crazy like penis shrinking like some people have mentioned on forums… lol don’t believe that stuff.

    My recommendation is starting ASAP, of course its best to go through a doctor and get it prescribed, but I just bought the drug from a Canadian site and I’m loving the results.

    Don’t be afraid! The side effects are NOT permanent, if anything goes wrong discontinuing the drug will fix it. Its FDA approved for a reason guys :)

  6. Why does he have a line drawn across his head??? seems to me like this is a before and after picture of a HAIR TRANSPLANT…….very suspicous.

  7. Guys why don’t you just embrace your new look and keep your head closely shaved? This is a very popular look which started in Italy and they know what looks good! I do and now I don’t even think about hair – imagine that?! : )

  8. what is the best way to grow or maintain some growth in the frontal area?
    my hair was loss in front corner n my age is 22, can i used it

  9. Hi I’m 26 years old and starting to thin. I’ve been loosing some hair in the peak area. I do read that propecia might not regrowing hair in this area. So my question is will it at least stop the hair loss in the peak area. I will be more then happy keeping what I have. Can some one tell me the scoop on this not looking for regrowth in this area just for it to stop!!!!!!!!!
