Set Realistic Expectations for yourself

Medications don’t always work, but it is important as you explore these medical options, to be realistic, knowing that they may not work.  Your genetic balding could be too strong and not responsive. With regard to finasteride, over 90% of men on this drug get at the least, some slowing of the hair loss. This has been well documented, but slowing from what?  That is a hard question to answer.

The hair transplant option is a good option for those of you who are not responders to medications or microneedling. The best part of a hair transplant is that once it is done on a person who has stabilized their hair loss (usually someone over 25), they can get their hair back and stop worrying. This is what my patients tell me over and over again. It is worth considering and saving up enough money to do it with the right doctor, the right plan and as said in the title of this post, setting realistic expectations.
