    Hi, has anyone tried PRP treatment? My doctor recommended it, but I'm leery as it seems quite new

    I tried it over a year ago. I was informed that the clinical trials show positive results in 97% of participants. I was also informed that even if I did not find any regrowth, the treatment should at least temporarily halt my hair loss. A little over a year later, and $1600 in the hole, my hair looks worse than ever. Now, I do not have a solid diagnosis behind my hair loss, and the treatment may prove successful for you. I just wanted to share my experience. Good luck, and if you want to talk, I know what you're going through, and I am here.

    Its proved good for fewer depends on the texture of hair, cause of loss etc.I think you should consult at least 2 to 3 hair specialist and then check for the solutions they all give. This would might help you to choose the best treatment to be applicable.

    Hair follicles survive through the absorption of oxygen from surrounding tissue. It is conjectured that the introduction of platelets and white blood cells through platelet rich plasma (PRP) would amplify the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism. Others propose that PRP can actually stimulate the stem cells (dermal papilla) of the newly transplanted hair follicles. Some practitioners also claim that PRP can be used to stimulate the growth of follicles, thereby reversing hair miniaturization seen in androgenetic alopecia and even preventing hair loss.

    While there is much conjecture as to the benefits of using PRP during hair transplantation and its use in the medical treatment of hair loss, there is little scientific evidence to support these theories at the present time. This is an exciting new area in the field of hair restoration that awaits further scientific data.
