Welcome to healthcare magic
If Minoxidil is working for you please continue it. Wait for atleast 3 months for noticing any improvement in hair growth. Propecia is again very useful for baldness and can be tried, but rarely can cause decreased libido, ejaculatory disturbances, impotence and gynecomastia. But these are rare and usually reversible. Discuss this with your dermatologist.
Hair laser comb increases blood circulation and is an adjuvant , not a mainstay treatment.
Hope this helped
Take care
