4 awesome repairs with SMG
Looks good.....has he found any benefit from the laser treatment I know it's been a little controversial as to its benefits over the years?

Did he not want to take Finasteride?

Thanks for sharing :)


Thanks for your comment @bullitnut .
He did not want to try finasteride as someone he knew experienced some of the side effects. Given that, I wanted him to be on as much of maintenance arsenal as possible. To be honest, I do seem to see a good response with LLLT on our clients. I encourage it being used at least with minoxidil, but nonetheless I have seen a lot of good results using only LLLT.
