PRP stimulates hair growth and does not causes shedding. It is possible that you have another stress or possibly the stress of the anesthesia used for your PRP injections may have temporarily caused hair loss. I would continue with the next 3 to 4 treatments and assess the growth. You might add Rogaine or Propecia to the formula as well. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green

Can PRP increase hair shedding and hairloss?
- rivera89PRP as a stand alone treatment should not cause hairloss or lead to shedding. But yes a PRP treatment session can be associated with telogen effluvium post procedure. This can occur in patients with Female pattern hair loss if the anesthesia is administered with epinephrine. I think that epinephrine can accelerate hair loss in these patients and cause temporary increase shedding. I use a lot of caution in administering a ring block in my patients with FPHL. I use plain lidocaine, instead of lidocaine with epinephrine. However, this often does not last long. In those cases, septociane or marcaine plain can extent the duration of the block. The telogen effluvium should resolve, Rogaine may help.
