Hi i notice my hair is ” kind of ” thin in the crown area. I went to a hair therapist “hair club” and the guy showed me a micrograph of me scalp and on the crown it shows a grey picture with little dark circle surrounding my hair. then he showed me a pinkish picture of the hair in the back without the dark circle. He is saying the dark circle is causing my hair to thin. He keep claiming it is genetic but no one on either side of my family or whoever has thining hair. All i heard from him the whole time the moment i step in the store before any analysis, is that im thining. And toss me those hair loss solution for 3000 a year. I have a feeling he just trying to make me buy his product see that im only 20. I dont wanna judge him but he dont look like a honest guy from how he talks.
PLz give me some advice thx.
I am going to assume he did a miniaturization study and if he did, he should know how to read it. You are young and may have male pattern baldness (MPB), but this question should have been answered by the miniaturization study. I would recommend that you see another physician for a second opinion.
If you are having early thinning in the crown due to MPB, then you would likely be an excellent candidate for Propecia. This is the only FDA approved oral medication for treating hair loss. There are thousands of products out there touting hair restoring capabilities, but outside of the ones that contain minoxidil (marketed as Rogaine), none of them really work. Minoxidil is a non-prescription item and many fancy sounding hair loss treatments you see on store shelves or television infomercials will contain this. Save your money and see your doctor about a prescription of Propecia if you are truly experiencing MPB. Good luck.
