    Default Advice on treatment options

    I recently went to a hair transplant clinic to discuss my options with a doctor. They said I didn't qualify for FUE because my donor area is too thin. However, I was told to start some treatments together and there could be potential in a year or so if some hair grew back.
    These are the treatments he recommended
    Proscar 5mg (1/4 tablet daily)
    Monoxidil 12.5%
    Low Level Laser Therapy (laser cap)
    The doctor said i have a lot of small hairs on my head that might grow back if I try these, and that the more of these I do together the better. I'm just a little skeptical because ultimately the clinic is there to make a profit, and some of these treatments (the last two specifically) are quite expensive. I was wondering if I can maybe expect some results if i try the Proscar and Monoxidil together? I was hoping I could just get some opinions on these treatments and their effectiveness. Attached are some pictures of me

    Just shave it as you're donor area would never cover the amount youve lost. Ive had 2 h.t. with similar amount of loss as you and still dont have the coverage needed.
