View Full Version : Why a folliscope is important with Propecia

Below is a picture of the vertex of my scalp magnified 30X after a hair transplant (+1 year) and Propecia. As you can see from the picture the Propecia is generally keeping the follicles "open" even after 10+ years. Some of the hairs are transplanted and some of them are not.

Look what tools exist! You can't just eyeball if a treatment is working. Know that a folliscope is a good tool when used by an experienced doctor!

Considered "Moderate" in Vertex
