Dermarolling and topical minoxidil + oral finasteride - 3 month results

Post by BreakingBald » 3 weeks ago

Hello everyone, this is my first post on this forum.
I am an Indian, 25. Since this February, I have been strictly following this regimen.
Topical Minoxidil(5%) twice daily.
Oral Finasteride 1mg.
Dermarolling 1.5mm( weekly wounding)
Ketoconazole 2%
Biotin+ Folic acid.
I have witnessed great regrowth in the crown area, It's almost filled up. But my temples have improved little to nothing, although there are tons of velus hair appearing in the frontal region but they won't grow in length.
I have recently added Dutasteride (0.5 mg) in my regimen. It's a strong weapon against DHT, but It can give me terrible sides.
I am attaching few images.
First pic was taken on 25th of Feb
Second one is the latest ,10th of May..

Hi mate. Crown is looking better and the front also looks stronger in the second photo. Definitely thicker looking.
Will my America ever be great again?

@blackg just curious, what's your norwood? And do you have a regimen? Can't remember if we've ever talked about this

Okay, I'm now in Norwood 3 territory along with some crown thinning.
A norwood 3 won't look too bad on a lot of men, but throw in a long head shape and a high forehead and it can look pretty off-putting...

I don't have a regime as I'm a big believer in the futility of fighting mother nature, plus I'm pushing 40. I'm at the age where my social life is slowing considerably so I feel less peer pressure I guess.

Do you shave, or sport a buzzcut? Or do you have an extravagant combover situation?

Just a buzzcut, which when I'm lazy turns into a growover/combover type of thing.

Why have you been on hair loss forums for years if you are content with genetics doing their thing?

Well I never said I was content about it. Plus I relate to these people more than my reel life peers.
I can be myself on here.
