Hair Loss Treatment - Are Medicines Enough or PRP Therapy is Mandatory?

Most common type of hair loss is Androgenetic Alopecia. This type of hair loss is being treated with medicines like Minoxidil and finasteride for many years. But after few months these hair loss medications stop working due to development of resistance.



But why does this resistance develop? According to Dr Upavan Pandya (Cosmetic skin & hair expert, Vibra Clinics, Udaipur), this resistance to hair loss medications is due to loss of tissue and small blood vessels found around hair follicles. Genetic hair loss is associated with fibrosis around hair roots and loss of blood supply.


According to Dr Upavan Pandya, PRP Therapy helps in tissue and blood vessel regeneration and thus help reversing the damage caused by androgenic alopecia. Thus PRP Therapy is a backbone of hair loss treatment while hair fall medicines may help augment its results.
