Will HM work for someone with diffuse balding in their \'safe zones\'?


#1

I’ve been following this board for awhile with limited hope. My hairloss is strange in that even the typical horseshoe area is thinning out, while I still have most of my old hairline. It is following my father’s pattern, where he is left only with a very thinned out tiny strip in the back. He is at a NW7 level, but even his NW7 is thinned out. I think it’s called DUPA (diffused unpatterned alopecia).

I know I’m not a candidate for HT because of my future. I’m still in my early 20s though and need something for hope. Will HM even work for me? Even if they duplicated my hairs, wouldn’t they thin out anyways? Could you duplicate enough thinned out hairs all over to eventually get density?

Am I doomed for life no matter what? Someone please tell me something encouraging :(.

I think it could be possible to perform a peer to peer transplant/multiplication. I may donate something for you :smiley: .

Cheer up, you’ll have something new to try anyway.

I’m speculating here of course but in my opinion it should work even for you but you might need much more regular topups before the healthy DP cells reach safe levels.

There is a dude I work with in his mid to late 50’s who has a full head of hair but I can see his scalp through the hair especially in the “safe zone”. IOW, although his hair has miniaturized all over it is still cosmetically acceptable- He is not bald. In fact, I believe as we age everyone’s hair will miniaturize to some degree (to what extent of course is key) even in the wreath area. With this said, I see no reason why HM won’t work for those who do have DUPA. You probably wont be able to achieve the same density- maybe a look similar to the guy I work with and I’m sure it will probably cost a hell of a lot more for many more injections. But again, this is just pure speculation- besides you’re so young you will probably be able to get an advanced cloning procedure when it comes around.

It will probably work for you well enough to get you through to a more complete cure. The important thing will be to harvest cells from your healthiest donor hairs. Of course, since you have a special case, you will have to find a clinic that will handle your case with care on an individual basis.

In 20 years, HM will be thought of as an antiquated procedure, and we will have real cures. Truthfully, HM is just an interim treatment for anyone under the age of 50, so get the best from it that you can, and then move on.
