1Is Prp More Effective Than Minoxidil?
PRP treatment was more effective than minoxidil therapy (p = 0.005). Complex therapy turned out to be more effective than minoxidil monotherapy (p < 0.0001) and PRP monotherapy (p = 0.007).
2Can I Use Minoxidil Same Day As Prp?
Do not apply any oils, serums or minoxidil for at least 2 days before your PRP treatment and for at least 24hours afterwards. Residual products in the scalp can inadvertently affect the PRP preparations and limit it’s ultimate effect.
3Should I Stop Using Minoxidil After Prp?
Androgenic alopecia is progressive. Hence minoxidil has to be used all your life. Prp is used only in the beginning to accelerate the hair growth. Continue minoxidil even after 6 months.
4Can Prp Grow New Hair?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is a novel procedure that uses your own blood platelets – a type of cell that helps with healing throughout the body – to potentially reverse hair loss and grow new hair.
5Should We Use Minoxidil After Prp?
The first 12 months of treatment is very important and Minoxidil should be continued twice daily or else the expected benefits may not happen. It is a good maintenance drug with minimal side effects. Apart from active pharmaceutical medicines, a healthy diet and lifestyle is mandatory to achieve results.
6Can I Use Rogaine With Prp?
Rogaine and PRP can be combined. IT is best to hold usage of Rogaine for 24 hours after PRP treatments, and then to resume. Other additions to PRP may include laser biostimulation, and Propecia (oral medication). It is safe to continue these treatments in conjunction with PRP treatments.
7Should I Go For Prp Or Minoxidil?
PRP with topical minoxidil was the most effective treatment modality while PRP alone and topical minoxidil alone were more effective than placebo. There was no significant difference between PRP alone and topical minoxidil alone, but the effect of PRP was seen earlier than topical minoxidil.
8What Should You Not Take After Prp?
Blood thinners (e.g. Aspirin, Plavix, Coumadin, etc.) may be resumed 24 hours after the procedure. Avoid anti-inflammatory medications for six weeks after the procedure (e.g. ibuprofen, naproxen, celebrex, etc.). Increased irritation in the affected area may occur after your PRP injection.
