This patient first came to see me at age 25. He had been on finasteride for four years and his hair loss was stable. He wanted to fill in his hairline and thicken his crown (photo 1). I advised waiting on surgery and doing a PRP/ACell treatment instead, which he agreed to. He returned a year later with clear improvement in hair thickness throughout (photo 2).
Norwood stage 3 Vertex
In terms of the receding hairline, stage 3 vertex balding is a less drastic version of stage 3.
However, people experiencing stage 3 vertex balding will also begin losing hair on the crown of their head. This often starts as one small bald spot.
