    Default PRP ended my young looks forever it seems

    Hi everyone,

    I was using minoxidil for 1 year with good results and had a slightly bald crown(not visible much) and an almost straight hairline.i went for prp thinking that it would only improve my results of minoxidil and fill in crown while improving hairline as well.To my surprise within 3 weeks I lost a lot of hair with crazy shedding.my doctor said it is shock loss and will grow back.It has been now 2.5 months approximately and hair seems to get only worse with receded hairline clearly visible now.i think going for prp was the worst decision i have ever made.doctors please help!i had two sessions but the first one did all the damage.

    Were you still on Minoxidil after doing PRP?

    Were you using any DHT inhibitors?

    I was on minoxidil all the time, i mean i am still using it and i am not using any dht inhibitor except saw palmetto ,since other factors were all constant, the most plausible reason for shock loss is prp

    When I had my 1st PRP treatment I shed a TON of hair between the 1st and 3rd month. So much so I thought PRP didn't work. Around the 4th month the shedding stopped and what I lost came back by the 6th month.

    Vic,

    When you say that "you thought PRP didn't work" after shedding for three months, is it fair to say that your hair was no worse off due to the shedding?

    I am about four months post PRP with Dr. Greco. My extreme shedding that started the day after my treatment has not let up. I am way worse off and I do not anticipate a turnaround at this point.

    My hair was worse. My shed was so bad I thought I was going to be bald within 6 months. Then one day, the shed just seemed to stop
