Topical Finasteride – Top 3 Myths

topical finasteride

Topical finasteride is one of the more popular topics that I'm asked about every day. It all started a few years ago when a few clinics started talking about how topical finasteride has no side effects and should have some efficacy that resembles regular oral finasteride. I remember the discussions before any products were announced. People online would talk about how they believed that by crushing up finasteride tablets they could add it to their minoxidil liquid and it would work better. The problem is that there was zero evidence … read more

Natural Hairline. What Does This Mean?

What makes a natural hairline? What I am going to discuss may be offensive to some clinics and doctors. However, it is time to talk about what every experienced hair transplant doctor knows and understands. Natural hairlines are less common today than they were ten years ago. "But Joe, how can this be true if technology has advanced so much?".  The reason why natural hairlines are less common now more than ever is because of one reason. Money.

Origins of The Natural Hairline

Why is money responsible for the lack … read more

Best Rated Hair Transplant Doctors

You've seen them everywhere, the best rated hair transplant doctors have all of the logos and seals that prove they are the best rated hair transplant doctors. But what do these logos and seals really mean? Do they legitimately mean that the doctor you're looking at is one of the best rates hair transplant doctors you can find? In this episode of Hair Transplant Class I take a look at the many different hair transplant and hair loss societies and associations that you are most likely to come across when … read more

Hair Transplant Review Finale – Dr. Lupanzula

london hair transplant review

This hair transplant review video has taken a long time to get to because when I was in Brussels, Belgium filming my visit to Medikemos Hair Restoration I recorded a lot of footage, more than I realized. In fact, there is still a lot of footage I haven't shared. The other reason why it took so long to wrap up this series was because it was very difficult to get the patient to send in his final result photos. Dr. Lupanzula's support staff told me that the patient reported being … read more

Los Angeles Hair Transplant Doctor- Dr. Baubac

I've been getting emails quite often asking about Los Angeles hair transplant doctor options that I can recommend. Finally, I can recommend a Los Angeles hair transplant doctor that appears to check all the boxes that I consider to be important for me. Dr. Baubac Hayatavoudi, or “Dr. Baubac” of the Alvi Armani clinic in Beverly Hills has what appears to be a solid set of ethics, a real desire for doing the best work possible, and best of all, he’s a hair nerd like the rest of us. He's … read more

Propecia Testicular Pain

Propecia testicular pain is spoken about quite a bit and some of them are very real. This doesn't mean that they can't be tolerated while they eventually dissipate because many times, in my own experience, this is exactly what happens. The caller in this clip from a recent episode of "Spencer Kobren's The Bald Truth" talks about Propecia testicular pain he was experiencing and he wasn't sure what to do about it. Spencer and I both share that we both experienced the exact same thing as we've both mentioned our … read more

Torsion Traction Compression – Avoiding FUE Disaster

Where do I start? Torsion traction compression is a controversial subject for a number of reasons. There is this idea being floated around that there are three forces (classified as being "detrimental") to a follicular unit when it is harvested via FUE. Those three forces are torsion traction compression. This idea is absolutely correct and I think any doctor that denies these forces exist would be lacking some simple common sense. However, there is another idea about these three forces that I do happen to disagree with and that is … read more

FUE Repair Case by Dr. Lupanzula

I love a good FUE repair case especially because of my own hair transplant repair history and here we have a case by Dr. Lupanzula that I think it about as close to perfect as can be found anywhere. This patient had some really unnatural looking grafts placed into his hairline for what I imagine would have been approached as a hairline thickening procedure. As is the case in situations like this he looks like he continued to recede and lose hair thereby exposing his the hair that was transplanted. … read more

Matthew McConaughey Hair Transplant

Matthew McConaughey Hair Transplant. It's more than a catchy title for a hair loss blog post. I rarely ever get involved in discussions about celebrity hair transplants because I think they're boring. Like in most subjects I'm not a fan of conjecture and speculation especially when it has nothing to do with me or if it will not ever affect me in any way. It's just a waste of time. I also think that it's just kind of tacky because celebrities are people too and I don't think it's fair … read more
