Medical Therapy For African American Male

This 35 year old black male was experiencing significant male pattern baldness (Norwood Class 5). Dr. Nicole Rogers recommended medical hair loss therapy as the first choice for treating his hair loss. Dr. Rogers prescribed oral finasteride 1mg daily with topical minoxidil 5% spray. 5 months after initiating medical therapy the patient was already exhibiting significant hair growth.  He was thrilled to have restored a strong, squared-off hairline as well as increased density over the midscalp. He should experience more hair growth over the next 6 to 12 months.
