Hair loss -- PRP, Progesterone, Viviscal, Rogaine, Finesteride, Spironolactone
I suggest seeing an expert to evaluate your hair loss and start non invasive options like PRP/progesterone or consider transplantation. I frequently treat women with hair loss using PRP/progesterone and see amazing results with no side effects. We do one treatment once a month and reassess after 6 months. Best, Dr. Emer.
Depending upon candidacy there are several efficacious hair
loss treatments available. We offer non surgical PRP, or platelet rich plasma
injections which have the potential to increase hair growth by
stimulating the hair follicles in both male and females, Capillus laser therapy
which can increase hair volume by up to 20% while preventing future
hair loss. We also offer a variety or topicals and supplements. My goal as a hair restoration surgeon
is to work closely with my patients to determine what is causing their hair
loss and what is best treatment option for their individual need and long term
goals so I would recommend an in person exam.

Thanks for your question. You would be a great candidate for PRP for hair loss and yes it "really works". Not all PRP systems are equal so it would be good to ask them what system they use to prepare the PRP- some of the better ones are PurePRP II, Harvest Technologies, Magellan...

PRP for low iron hair loss? ENGLEWOOD Cliffs NJ
In my opinion, you need to be evaluated by a hair expert. They will do a good history, magnification exam, blood work or review of blood work and possibly a biopsy. If indeed your hair loss is due to a low iron, it may precipitate an acute hair loss called telogen effluvium. As of now, PRP is not known to be effective for telogen effluvium type hair loss. I suggest that your hair loss expert determine if you have telogen effluvium. Hope this helps. Good luck.
