    Hi guys.... Sooooo...... I'm about to start PRP :D:D Im so excited I can hardly wait! I'm nervous though. It is very expensive. But I think about how much money I've spent on books, herbs, vitamins, lasers, etc. That has also been very expensive over time. What do you guys think? Have you tried it, or know anyone who has tried it?

    I will! Are you doing prp alone or with stem cells or acell too? May I ask what kind of hair loss you have, too?

    I have chronic TE. I think mine is just alone... they never mentioned stem cells or acells. I am still early into my hair loss journey. It's been going on for about 6 years, but I still have a full scalp. I just can't grow hair past like 6 inches anymore. All of my shedding is hair 2-6 inches long. He said the PRP will stop the shedding as well as provide some regrowth. How about you?

    Losing_it, do you know the centrifuge system your doctor uses? Do you mind giving the doctor's name? I might know what protocol he uses. I am having it done with Dr. Greco next month.

    I also have chronic te with some underlying Androgenetic Alopecia most likely. I'm going through a huge shed episode right now- I hope it works for us!

    Losing_it- just out of curiosity, what kind of hairs do you shed? My gynecologist, endocrinologist, and dermatologist all think it's te, but I shed so many thin, unhealthy looking hairs it scares me. None of them seemed concerned by this though. Just wondering if you have these, I fear it means I have Androgenetic Alopecia. Also, where do you go for prp? Your dermatologist? Or a hair loss/restoration center?

    It sounds very exciting this treatment. I hope you both will have excellent results. May I ask how much it costs per treatment and how many and how often do you need the treatments.
    How soon should it start having an effect? Goodluck!

    Ruth- It is very expensive. Probably more expensive for me because I live in a ridiculously expensive part of the US :( Each treatment for me can run between $1500-$3000. Crazy, but I'm giving it a shot. He said to maximize effectiveness it is best to do at least 3 treatments 4-6 moths apart, then continue every 2 years or so for maintenance. I told myself I would try it twice and go from there- I don't expect a miracle at all, even if my shedding stopped I'd be happy!

    Very expensive indeed, but if it really works it is worth it.
    I hope you get excellent results
