PRP a good alternative to Finasteride?

Cosmetic Treatments QuestionsCategory: PRPPRP a good alternative to Finasteride?
A patient asked 9 months ago
Me: 28-YO with two prior transplants, happy with my results, but I’m considering a third and final transplant. I’ve started PRP as a maintenance measure, but, as I think about my final transplant, I’m concerned that the PRP ALONE won’t prevent shock loss/further hair loss, as well as Finasteride. I’ve taken Fin before for a short period but stopped after experiencing negative side effects, so I’m uncomfortable taking it again. Would you say PRP is a viable alternative to Fin for maintenance?

PRP for Hair Loss

 
Hi and thank you for your question! PRP can be considered as a possible alternative to finasteride for hair loss but best results are often achieved when the 2 are combined. If you have had side effects from finasteride, another option to consider can be Minoxidil with can be take together with doing PRP and combining the two can greatly support hair growth. I hope it helps and good luck!
