Alopecia areata and PRP? ENGLEWOOD Cliffs NJ

In my opinion, you need to be evaluated buy a hair loss expert. Although PRP has been reported to be effective with alopecia areata, I have not seen excellent results.  You need a definite diagnosis as to why your hair is shedding . Should you have a female pattern hair loss, PRP would be effective in decreasing hair loss increasing hair diameter and causing regrowth in recently  dormant hairs. Hope this helps. Good luck.
