Androgenetic alopecia

The hair loss progressive is a logical phase of aging humans. Some start earlier, others a little later, but slow, progressive hair loss is very common in men in their 20s and 30s . An age in which physical appearance is given special importance so that not everyone is accepted when they look in the mirror .

In today’s clinical case we present a male who describes slow hair loss for about 8-9 years . His hair loss is mainly concentrated in the inner area until he reaches the current pattern of androgenetic alopecia type IV-A .

What is androgenetic alopecia type IV-A

It is a more advanced phase of baldness . It is generally recognized by a frontal area with less hair than in grade III. The density of the hair is noticeably reduced in the crown area as well, not in all cases but in most cases.

In the case of this man, he did not have any case of baldness in the family as it usually happens with other cases. During his progressive hair loss he had been taking Finasteride 1mgr for many years and Minoxidil 5% for a few months . He went to the clinic to assess a possible hair transplant .

We propose a maximum session to increase anterior and superior density with follicular units of 2-3 hairs to obtain the maximum possible density. Do not act at the level of the 1st line as it maintains its integrity.

1,737 follicular units of 2 and 3 hairs are transplanted with the strip technique, which is equivalent to more than 4,000 transplanted hairs .

We recommend continuing with Finasteride 1 mg r (1 per day) and Minoxidil 5% (10-12 sprays per day) as maintenance treatments after transplantation.


I certainly don’t think this hair supplement is the ultimate solution to resolving baldness and I certainly wo n’t stop the drug therapies I’m following. However, it has serious studies at the base and acts by attacking…
