Oral Minoxidil information handout
Below is our written information handout for patients considering oral minoxidil.
Recently, there has been several peer reviewed studies that reaffirm a positive role for PRP for hair loss in men and women.
The studies confirm both increased hair count and thickening of existing hair after a series of PRP treatments. No serious adverse side effects were reported. They point out that there is no standardization in technique. The consensus is emerging that a series of initial treatments are needed with future maintenance once every 9 months to benefit the positive result since we continue to grow new hair.
As with all treatments, PRP does not work in 100% of patients, but seems to have a positive effect in 60-75% of the patients in most studies. Our experience reflects data being published.
