Are there any very-qualified physicians certified in non-surgical management of hair loss for post-menopausal women?
1 year ago
I am 68, have always had thin hair, but have noticed slight, general thinning overall of my hair, (maybe especially at the crown, but not sure) for a few years now. I never knew that there was anything that I could do about this, as i just accepted that this was just part of being post-menopausal aging and not willing to take HRT. Can PRP and/ or laser therapy or anything else help me? I can't take minoxidal products, as my BP is nomally not higher than 90/60. so I don't want to risk AE's.

In my opinion you need to be evaluated by a hair expert. We have found that postmenopausal hairloss responds well to p r p. However the diagnosis needs to be certain. You may need a good history examination and possibly blood work. Other treatments may be added to your regimen. Hope this helps. Good luck.
There are alot of options such as PRP, progesterone, spironolactone that can help. You need a formal evaluation to determine what is best. Dr. Emer.
