    Is PRP Effective?

    If you guys are interested in anecdotal evidence, I am actually going to be trying out PRP very soon in addition to a couple of other non-surgical options. I have been on finasteride for a few years, starter on Minoxidil two months ago, and will be trying out PRP treatments. I'd be happy to try to provide some details on my experience for whatever that's worth. Disclaimer: I have a lot of my native hair and am primarily suffering from early thinning and miniaturization. My understanding is PRP has the best chance of success in this kind of situation, particularly when combined with synergistic treatments like the ones mentioned above.
  2. This was basically my understanding; that it may terminate dying hairs a bit prematurely but the healthy ones should grow back, which I assume is why I've seen some patients put on a finasteride and/or minoxidil regimen for a stretch prior to undergoing a transplant. I always figured in addition to the obvious need to stabilize natural loss that was a preventative measure to try to strengthen any native hair as much as possible to prevent shock loss.
  3. Thanks for posting the post op pictures. I think the clarification on the frontal portion having thinned less visibly is helpful because in the initial photos it is hard to tell without wondering if I'm imagining it. Is the patient taking Finasteride?
  4. Long time lurker. I'd be interested to hear some additional details on graft placement in this case as well. I was just looking at patients with a similar graft count with placements covering the bulk of the frontal area, and here that same amount seems to have been packed into the hairline alone. Was there a bit more thinning in the hairline than the pictures show? Or possibly it was lowered and I'm too inexperienced to be able to spot it?
