View Full Version : Is Propecia an effective treatment for DPA (Diffuse Pattern Alopecia)

I put this in this thread in the transplant forum by action, so I apologize for the duplicity if this is your second time reading, but this topic has no reason to be in the transplant section!

I just started the big three about a week and a half ago after a derm's recommendation, and I wanted to make sure that treatment regimen has a positive chance of success for my type of hair loss.

For clarification: my hair loss is DPA, not DUPA. The donor areas (sides and back) show no miniaturization.

Yes. If it is MPB, then it is effective.

Thanks for the reply. Luckily, I still have quite a bit of hair, so maintenance would be a success.

I also have a follow question: does diffuse MPB mean more aggressive MPB or just merely a different pattern?

Merely a different way of getting there.... :)
