Maintaining well with this regimen (well over 2 years)


#1

Hi guys,

I’m maintaining well with this regimen for a quite a while now and wanted to share what I’ve learned.

Quick HT history:
Many strip procedures since 1992 and a BHT procedure to soften my HT hairline.
Lots of NW5&6s on both sides of my family.

It’s been well over 2 years since my last BHT procedure (hairline only) and almost 5 years since my last strip procedure.

I seem to be maintaining well with the following combo…

1/4 Proscar every other day (going on 18 years)
Minox once per day (going on 18 years)
Hairmax vitamin once per day (over 5 years)
MSM 3000mg once per day (over 2 years)
Fish oil 2000mg once per day (over two years)
Laserbrush every third day for about 20 minutes (over two years)

Iv’e dropped Horsetail and Biotin as they are contained in the hairmax vitamin.

Just looking for any feedback, questions, concerns or comments.

This seems to be working for me and wanted to share.

I really wish I had taken pictures before starting the laserbrush.
I’m a BIG believer.
Not so much for regrowth but hair diameter, scalp health and maintaining.
My HT doc however, is not convinced.

Peace.

SFSG,

Thanks for sharing. I will add that to your personal journal. Glad you are seeing result with the brush.

I have also added a little “footer” to your post signature letting people know that you are available to meet in the Los Angeles area should anyone wish to meet with you and examine your hair transplant result in person.

Is the laserbrush the same as the lasercomb?

No, actually it is an “alternative” to the comb.

The gentleman who makes them seems to know his stuff and was very nice to deal with.

Man, that is only 80 bucks? The lasercomb is like 500 bucks.

Is that device durable? Never a problem in 2 years?

No problem whatsoever and the customer service was great.
I’d bet if there was a problem in the first year, Joe would work something out with the customer.

I’m tempted to upgrade but I’m going to wait until this one fails.

For the price, if I had to buy one every two years, I wouldn’t be upset.

Can someone with a science background comment on the type of lasers used in the brush?

My understanding is that the comb used a mirror to split the laser into multiple “dots” and now uses individual lasers like the brush.

I found this to be a good sign for the brush.

(No, I don’t work for the company, lol)

Hey Josh,

How long did it take for you to see results using the laserbrush? I know you mentioned it didn’t help with regrowth but made existing hairs thicker. Can you comment further on your experience with laser treatment? Do you believe it is a good practice for anyone who has had a HT for maintenance purposes?

Thanks,

Jay

I found this picture from the front page, this is probably magnified 100 times already, it’s not that impressive if you ask me

Hi Jay,

I’d give it a good six months.
Don’t use it every day though.
Every other day or even every third day is optimal, imo.

Again, it’s hard to say if the laserbrush or the MSM is what I’m noticing.
Both are pretty inexpensive and worth a try, imo.

Wish I had taken ‘before’ pictures but my crown looks better than it did two years ago, imo.
I don’t want to use the word ‘regrowth’ so as not to raise hopes.

I don’t shed much these days and my scalp seems healthy.

It would be great if a few of us could try it and see what the feedback is over time.

Please understand that, imo, the laser might just help for folks who are NOT slick bald but are noticing thinning. It’s not magic.

And yes, I’d say if one had an HT, it’s worth trying.

Peace.

Thanks for your response Josh.

I am noticing some thinning in my hairline and behind the hairline so maybe I should try the laserbrush and see what kind of results I can achieve. I am still going to go for an FUE procedure but want to try some alternatitve methods of keeping the hair I already have. Taking Proscar doesn’t seem to be cutting it. Any other suggestions that have worked for you would be appreciated.

Hi Sofarsogood,

Thanks for sharing your regimen. Will add the hairmax to my routine. Wondering the brand of laser you are using. My best friend is looking to purchase one, so Id like to pass on to him that you are getting good results, diameter etc with the laser.
Good luck with it all.
