So I finally decided to start with prp..hd my first session a month back. Its a doctor in the NYC metro area. The shots were not that painful..just like someone pulling out your hair..but literally it take 60 secs in total and I was on my way. I didnt take any meds for pain..I went my own way doing everything the same. I use concealers and the doctor said it was ok to use. I was prescribed the following: Minoxidil oral meds (low dose), nutrafol (2 per night with my meal). The doctor wanted to give me finasteride but since I was not on birth control he said he would not put me on that. He told me not to use any chemicals on my hair, etc..which was fine as I don't. Prior to the prp I was losing 5-15 hairs a day (that I could see after a shower). I do blow dry my hair on low heat and may be losing hair during that too (and my bathroom floor does have hair lying around) - so I'm sure I was losing more hair than I saw. After the prp, the first 4 days there was 0 hairfall..seriously..then I noticed it went back to the same..I will be getting my second shot shortly..I dont see any changes yet..of course it is too early..I'm going to give it a few months before I share my opinion or post any photos..I took them right after the first procedure..so will continue to do that and post it after a few months..I've been on this forum for many years now..and I wish I did something before I lost all my hair..btw I am 41..if you need to know something specific send me a private message. If they are general questions..happy to answer it here..
