Without pictures it is hard to say, however from what you describe, it sounds like you would be a good candidate for PRP.

In my opinion, PRP works well for post menopausal PATTERN hair loss. You should be evaluated by a hair loss expert. They will do a good history, examination, Review your blood work and possibly a biopsy to determine if you are a candidate. Good luck.
PRP for Hair Loss
Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about your hair thinning concerns. PRP can be an excellent treatment for woman and even men who are experiencing thinning hair. The growth factors in the platelets stimulate the follicles to grow hair. It can be combined with other hair loss treatments for extra benefit depending on individual need. I would recommend an in person exam to help determine the cause of thinning hair which is most important as well as candidacy. Best wishes.

PRP for thinning hair
PRP and PRP with cell additive mixtures are effective treatments to grow more hair. My patients usually see fuller hair in 6 months. It is normal to see more shedding early after the treatment. I find most women need a series of 3 PRP treatments for maximal results. Taking medical grade hair vitamins during the treatment also boosts your final result.

PRP might help but it's probably not the first thing on the list. First and foremost you need a diagnosis, because the proper treatments are different depending on the diagnosis.
See your dermatologist please. I use PRP in my practice but I can say emphatically that there is no hair loss condition for which PRP is the first step in the overall treatment algorithm.
