Male pattern baldness

Ive started having 1-2 stages of alopecia. Before trying mesotherapy or prp, Im thibking I should go for Minoxidil. But Ive read reviews that people lose hair again once they stop minoxidil. Will I end up worse if I stop using minoxidil? Or will my condition return to where it was before using minoxidil? I mean Im just 21, how will I apply minoxidil for 10-15 more years daily..

Thanks for the query. The treatment typically consists of usage of oral medication (Finasteride) and topical lotion (Minoxidil ). The dosage and duration is decided by your dermatologist. You need to be patient with the treatment protocol as it takes months to see initial improvement. Minoxidil is recommended for indefinite usage. Certain dermatologists supplement biotin, hair serum and advice procedures like PRP therapy which may accelerate the rate of hair growth. PRP needs multiple sessions roughly at 6 weeks intervals.
