Hi there, Thanks for your query. Androgenetic alopecia is a common disorder which is even becoming commoner. A good thing is if the patient follows up with a good dermatologist, results can be seen within a span of few months. It takes time to arrest hair fall and to make them grow back. ​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. 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. Hair transplant is also an option that can be considered. In my personal opinion, you should try the medications and be hopeful for the results. Even if you decide to proceed with hair transplant, these medications are usually coprescribed.
