I have been figting the good fight (against Hair Loss) for years. I first noticed thinning temples, and a “thin-spot” on the front middle section of my head, around the age of 19. I saw this as a warning sign(since my father is very bald)and began using propecia when I turned 20. I know that this led to a thickening of the ‘thin-spot” and a slow down of thinning. I managed to maintain my hair between a norwood II and III throughout my twenties. After many years of peace I am noticing a renewal of the “thin-spot” and new thinning in scattered areas like the temples and sides of my head. Some of these areas were not a an issue before. I find myself stressed out by styling and seeking new hair products. I worry that I could quickly become a Norwood III – IV if I don’t take action as I did when I turned 20. I would like to explore all options and I am very interested in Dutasteride. I like having hair… although I don’t look like I did when I was twenty anymore, I would like to keep/possibly thicken what I still have. Should I visit you at NHI? I would rather visit proactively than for a transplant later.
I have an office in San Jose (where noted as your location) and would be happy to map your scalp for miniaturization and make a diagnosis. I would not rush off to non-approved drugs for genetic hair loss if that is what you have. Let’s get a diagnosis first and go from there. Proactive is good. If you would like to setup an appointment, you can call 800-NEW-HAIR or visit my Request Info page.
