Propecia vs. PRP
Both are an effective way for prevention of Hair Loss. Although, with Propecia there may be some side effects so often patients choose PRP treatments once every 8 months. It would be most effective to do both.
Treating early hair loss
PRP vs. Propecia
The most effective treatment to combat early hair loss would be a combination of both propecia and PRP therapy. However, most young men don't tolerate the side effect profile of propecia, so be sure to speak with your physician about this. PRP is a wonderful therapy for early hair loss. I recommend scalp PRP injections in a series of three, spaced one month apart.
Best of luck to you!

Propecia vs. PRP
PRP on the other hand is extremely safe. Some centers in the United States are combining autologous stem cell injection (stem cells harvested from a your abdominal fat) along with the PRP which though more expensive makes it possible to have the injection done once every 1-2 yrs (with PRP alone you usually do a series of 3 sessions, then one session every 6 to 8 months). Regeneris Medical in the US is doing PRP + Stem Cells for hair loss. I am not sure if anyone in Canada is doing the same.
