About half of all people have such a hair loss by around age 50. Earlier day Joe Tillman released an excellent and very instructive video for those who are thinking of getting a hair transplant.
I still can’t believe his before and after hair transplanttransformation considering that his first two bad hair transplants occurred almost 24 years ago.
FYI click on the title of the below video to open in a separate page.
Note that follicles is different from follicular units or grafts.
Joe’s transformation is very impressive and he is very honest about all the edges and drawbacks of his new transplanted hair. I did not realize that he has had 25000 hair follicles moved from the back of his scalp to the front and crown of his scalp over the years. I liked the below finding. Just think for a moment. The more interesting facts of this particular study is that the authors also measured how many miniaturized/miniaturizing hairs became thick once again. Then again, while Finasteride 1 mg led to a reduction in the thin hair count by 5 percent at 24 weeks, in this particular study, Dutasteride 5 mg led to a reduction in the thin hair count by 12 percent at 24 weeks.
It’s unclear exactly how many if most of the thin hair that became thicker were vellus hair that had shrunk many years or even decades earlier. That’s important as long as it shows ‘that5 alpha reductase’ inhibitors similar to Finasteride and Dutasteride can bring back hair from the dead/almost dead/slowly dying. Over the years, I have read many online anecdotal reports of older men who were taking Dutasteride to treat enlarged prostates and saw hair growth in areas of the scalp that were tally bald for decades. Nonetheless usually just a certain amount it, dutasteride likely helps bring back long lost hair in many patients. With that said, Surely it’s basically Finasteride on steroids. More benefits as well as more after effects than Finasteride.
You can also read about some great positive results of using Dutasteride to treat hair loss in the comments to this post.
I have discussed Dutasteride numerous times on this blog.
There’re a lot of internet testimonials that you can find of old men who got on Dutasteride and saw hair growing on parts of their scalp that were bald for decades. You see, in identical study, 45 men were also treated with Finasteride 1 mg once a day and saw about a 2 percent increase in hair count at 24 weeks. Still a perfect results when considering that virtually most of the balding men would have seen a decline in hair count at 24 weeks without treatment. Hair loss forum members all over the world were going berserk with excitement, when Dutasteride first came out onto the market in 2002. I miss those days when it seem liked Dutasteride was the ultimate cure for hair loss and everyone was counting the days till the pending product release with extreme levels of hope and hysteria. Now look, the drug was not a miracle for most people who already had significant hair loss. Quite a few such studies seem to come from the western world so I am glad that this one comes from India.
It seems like Dutasteride is effective at growing hair irrespective of one’s ethnicity and genetics.
That’s yet one more study among numerous others over the past decade that has concluded Dutasteride to be significantly superior to Finasteride in regrowing hair. I have mentioned Spencer a few times on this blog before. He has had around 10 large and small hair transplants over the years and is featured in numerous newspaper stories about hair loss. I was very pleased to learn that he very recently started using Dutasteride to treat his hair loss. He is documenting his results with photos here. Please read my original post on them, with the intention to learn more about both thesehair legends.
