Figure 6: Dermoscopy as a monitoring tool in minoxidil. (a and b) Dermoscopic findings after improvement. (a) Pretreatment. (b) Posttreatment. There is an increase in the number of hairs with treatment while there is no change in the number of follicular units with single and multiple hairs and yellow dots. (c and d) Dermoscopic findings after slight improvement. (c) Pretreatment. (d) Posttreatment. There is no major change in the number of hairs, yellow dots, and perifollicular halo. Light yellow dots of varying size are seen. Thin hairs (black arrow) thick hairs (arrow head), variation in hair shaft diameter is >20%, yellow dots (black circle) predominance of follicular units with single hairs, follicular units with >1 hairs (red arrow head), perifollicular halo (white arrows)
