An 18-year-old man has been experiencing genetic hair loss. He started minoxidil, which helped his hair grow temporarily, but after 5 months, he lost it all again. He wants to know if undergoing low-level laser light therapy alongside minoxidil will help regrow his hair permanently.

New York hair restoration specialist Amiya Prasad, M.D., reviews his concerns in this video, and explains how there are no permanent solutions for hair loss, and how younger individuals with aggressive hair loss can benefit from a treatment plan of Hair Regeneration and a DHT blocker:

1:20 — Dr. Prasad details his background training in cosmetic oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as his experience as a hair loss specialist and founder of TrichoStem™ Hair Regeneration Centers

2:27 — How pattern hair loss is an unavoidable genetic condition; and how hair loss management is about managing progression or managing the consequence via surgery or medical therapy

3:36 — How younger people with aggressive hair loss have fewer hair growth cycles

4:04 — Dr. Prasad discusses his disappointing experience using low-level laser light therapy

5:12 — How there is no permanent solution for hair loss — only management strategies
