Yes, hair transplant is indicated after exhausting all other treatment options. In fact, some treatments done before a hair transplant can improve the success rate. For example, it is recommended that patients begin medical treatment for hair loss one year before undergoing hair transplantation, so to slow down hair loss and stimulate new hair growth.
Currently, there are two effective medications for hair loss – Minoxidil and Finasteride. Minoxidil is an over-the-counter medication that is applied topically and is the active ingredient in Rogaine. Finasteride is a prescription medication that is taken orally and is the active ingredient in Propecia.
