Most of the time, this loss is progressive and may take 4-6 months to respond to treatment. Sooner the treatment is started better are the results. Though it's important to understand that some alopecia problems may not respond to best of the treatment modalities .So it's important to consult a good dermatologist on time .Mesotherapy and Prp are promising therapies which can be tried. All these treatment definitely need maintenance sessions along with local lotions application under the supervision of dermatologist.

Prp results may vary from patients to patients and from Doctor to doctor depending upon how the prp is made.

Ideally it should be done by dermatologist himself or herself without relying on technicians /nurses for best results. We as the pioneer in hair loss treatment would suggest you to have all this in mind before you go for treatment for hair loss or hair fall. Ofcourse some persistent effort by the patient and its importance in final result can not be ruled out. All centres have their own protocols for the technique but the best results are obtained by the technique which keeps platelets in the solution in their viable form.
