Propecia and Young Men

At the time, I was told that Minoxidil will just postpone the total hair loss. Well, I never went bald that much. About four years ago, I started taking Finasteride 1mg, and I think it worked out […]

Tretinoin and Minoxidil Combination for Treatment of Hair Loss

Q: How are you doing? All I have to say is TGIF. I was doing a little bit research on hair loss, and I stumbled over retinoic acid. I read about it and have a basic understanding. Have you heard any claims that it could possible revive hair loss? Have a great weekend! A: This is a good question.

Murad Shampoo for Hair Loss

Q: Dear Dr. Mohebi, I hope all is well with you and the family. I wanted to see your opinion about something. Along with proscar, I use Murad shampoo (i dont know if you have heard of it) but it supposedly strengthens your hair and brings nourishment to the hair, therefore promoting hair regrowth. Remember how short my hair was when we first met, well now its relatively longer. Do you think i should keep it short for several reasons: easier to clean my scalp, exposure to vitamin d (sunlight). When my hair is long, I can see it shed, […]

Mega Session Hair Transplant Surgery

Mega session hair transplant surgery has been around for almost a decade since Dr. Rassman and others started doing bigger and bigger sessions. Before 1993 all could be done was less than 1000 and occasionally 1500 grafts per each session. Using newer techniques and larger team of experienced technicians, we at Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration are currently performing large sessions on a regular basis. Not all physician teams are equal. If a doctor routinely performs sessions in over 2500 graft size, then it would be safe to assume that this doctor has mastered the skills required for large session. Unfortunately, not […]

Finansteride, Minoxidil Or Both

hey doctor! As I read through forums and articles, people mention that propecia works better in conjunction with something else, such as rogaine for exmaple. At the moment, the vertex area of my scalp seems emptier than than the crown and minoxidil works well with the vertex.

Answer: I generally prescribe finasteride to most of my patients who have significant miniaturization whether they are getting hair transplants or not. There are several studies on using Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride) as single […]
