Hi Dr Bernstein,

This is impressive.

Just a quick question. On your website you have a section of before and after of propecia/minoxidil users.
I notice for some there was a 4 to 5 years gap between the photos. Does that mean that's how long it took to start seeing noticeable results?
Would you say in the first 1 to 2 years, it looked like nothing was changing?
