To those who are just using Minoxidil and micro-needling only. I am just speaking from my own experience but eventually whatever gains you get from the two will not last, at least it didn’t for me. But I have continued to persist with it even though it continued to get worst. I am 39 and now starting on topical finasteride for the first time
I am not surprised that even if you got all of your hair back, once a single hair cycle completed (2-3 years) the balding would have returned to where it is now. If the topical finasteride fails and you want your hair back, a hair transplant is a sure thing for this type of balding.
