What would be the difference between taking oral dutasteride and needling and applying topical dutasteride?

I'm using RU58841 and apply minoxidil + lclt 4 hours after RU application with light needling. I've been considering making a minoxidil + RU mixture to cut down on application time, but very on the fence about needling before using RU.

How often do you microneedle? One day every two weeks of RU going systemic isn't going to do anything. It's such a small amount. If RU were given as an oral AA the dose would be at least a gram per day.

Was considering .25mm daily after application. Then .8 to 1.5mm, depending on area, every 14 days.

I had the same experience with Dr Mwamba and his upselling of products, but he did agree to prescribe topical duta. I also thought he was pretty nice.

Overall, Mwamba said that he was not sure about the best dosing schedule, and that while dosing every 10 days or so has worked for one patient (I.e., Mustang) it wouldn't necessarily work for everyone. Dr Mwamba advised me to start off by applying every 4 or 5 days and see how I get on.

Unfortunately, he said he thought I was more likely than not to have side effects as I experienced them with topical finasteride, but that I could try topical duta and stop if necessary. This now leaves me with a decision to make.

Thx for you input, what's the percentage of your topical duta? Please give us some feedback if you start

Did anyone test 5-10% Urea or Ceramide creme for improving your skin barrier so that less topical will be absorbed into the blood stream?

@blub10 was just looking up some of these creams. what do you know about them and how do they work? Any specific brands or versions you recommend? I'm interested in reducing my scalp porosity / improving scalp barrier before applying topical dutasteride

I did some research here on the forum. One member claimed to have stronger side effects in topical Duta than on low dose oral finsteride. So far only Mustang claims having less side effects which is not too much of an evidence, especially without good photos, nevertheless I really like his Scar Repair thread

@Pegasus, there are studies on alcohol causing skin aging. Is your claim of PGA backed up by any scientific paper?

Furthermore Mustang does not tell which Doctor or pharmacy did produce it and doesn't want to disclose the formula. From I heard it's from Dr. Mw*mba, not Lupanzula. 30ml finasteride ordered directly at Parati costs about 30 Euro + shipping ; Duta 50Euro + Shipping. I do not believe that both of these surgeons do get any mentionable commission that interests a surgeon (maybe 10 Euro per monthly order if at all)

But needless to say, I also had a consultation with Dr. Mw*mba. He is nice guy and took his time but but he tried to cross sell things which other reputable surgeons in Europe and Asia told me it is a waste of money such as "Whey Help Hair Protein", Prp with Acell and Hylauronic Acid, Shampoos of a certain brand, Laser Caps (I can even back this up with a proposal). So you never know

Nevertheless 50% DHT suppression from Mustang is quite a lot, but he uses a very high dose topical duta and claims the best regrowth ever. From my topical Fina Experience and study of oral Fina it makes almost no difference if someone takes 0.25mg oral finasteride compared to 1mg finasteride or 1% topical finasteride to 0.05% topical finasteride. I have a high suspicion that the same will occur to topical Duta

I do not have 50% suppression of DHT with Topical Dutasteride
It's around 15% with normal dosing which is nothing.

It's not my formula to disclose and I want to refrain from mentioning any pharmacy or clinic so that we are here for the right reason but no, I do not use Paratti.

Laser cap works 100%. I bought 4 already from a Spanish clinic.

Topical finasteride will give you sides.

Any Urea Cream will probably do the Job. I use a 10% Lotion from Eucerin or Cerave but its really up to you, I dont think they are better than other brands

Do you need prescription for topical dutasteride?

Yes, follow this thread I posted all details how to obtain and pay for prescription and the lotion mixtures with discount options. Check they ship to your country, let me know if you require my help and assistance. They can also mix different Strenght minoxidil into the Finasteride mixture, but Dutasteride with or without 5% minoxidil.

Still using this and it is working for me. Topical dutasteride is the only thing I would recommend to anyone. My hairline has receeded a bit more but Ive only been applying every 2 weeks. I'm planning to apply to my hairline more often for better maintenance.
