    Default PRP Journey Honest and open experience UK

    Hello all

    Ive been posting for the last few years on the thread below, originally to document my end to end FUT journey, as we had so little real-life stories in the UK. Youíll see its a very open and honest.

    https://www.baldtruthtalk.com/thread...d=1#post284167

    The FUT was circa 6 years back now, but i have thinning of the crown and also thinning around my hairline, additionally as Iíve got older Iím actually conscious of the FUT scar.

    So Iíve decided to look into PRP treatment - first session is booked in on 12 April in Grantham near Nottingham UK.

    Images are:

    Image 1 Pre FUT circa 6 years back
    Image 2, 3,4 taken today and are of my FUT scar, crown and hairline thinning.
    Image 5 taken today after hair is styled (standard wax only, no thickeners/sprays/fibres etc).

    As mentioned in my other thread, i also do the following:

    1, finasteride 1 mg Daily
    2, Kirklands Minoxidil twice daily

    Iíll post updates straight after the first PRP treatment on the 12th April, and each stage throughout. Iím booked for a monthly session over the next 3-4 months.

    Hello. Did you donate blood for hormone level diagnostics before going to the surgeon's consultation? As I heard, hormonal diagnostics and ultrasound are very important procedures before hair transplantation. It is important to understand why hair loss occurs.

    Hi there

    Donít forget my actual transplant was 6 years ago :-). See my other thread. But in answer to your question itís standard MPB, with no underlying concerns.

    This thread is to document start to finish the PRP journey, so Iíve had the pre consultation and no concerns have been raised re my suitability for PRP. Next stage is the actual process.

    I think this is one of the main problems re Finn/Minoxidil/transplants/lasers/PRP etc. Not many people actually maintains a post with genuine updates... so weíre left to join the dots with guess work.

    My first PRP - blood taken and then the plasma injected will be on the 12thApril - my intentions are to post images straight afterwards, so others can see whatís involved. I can then post updates after this and after the next course.

    Hope that helps clarify the thread purpose :-)

    Got it. Your thread didn't finish reading something yesterday. Distracted and that's why I asked this question. I need to be more careful. It's just that there are so many junk topics with spam that I was even confused.

    Default First PRP session

    Okay so Iíve had my first PRP session today.

    Blood taking was painless and was taken whilst a numbing solution was applied to my head.
    The nurse (Jamie) then put the blood in her machine and after the magic was done she used the micro needling machine on my scar and directly injected and did the micro needling on my thinning patches.

    Looks pretty gruesome, but genuinely was not uncomfortable at all.

    The images were all taken almost straight after the treatment, would you all be happy with a weekly photo update? My second session is booked in for 4 weeks time, I can request that the session Is filmed if thatís something you would find useful or interesting.

    Hi all

    Iím a week after my prp (well week and a day ;-)

    No pain afterwards and no after effects to speak of. Here are my images a week after treatment one.

    Tried to show my hair when brushed to the side and then natural (aka at its worse)

    Hi all

    Latest update images are attached.

    Iíve only had one session so far, not noticed new growth yet, but I have seen a huge improvement in the scar. It feels flatter and less obvious already.

    Iíll be going for session 2 of my PRP next week.

    Does anyone have questions? I can see this thread is getting lots of views... Iím happy to honestly answer any questions (as I did with my transplant thread)
