There are about 100,000 strands of hair on your scalp and it is considered very normal to lose 50 to 100 strands a day.

If your hair loss is caused by an underlying disease, treatment for that disease will be necessary. This may include drugs to reduce inflammation and suppress your immune system, such as prednisone.

Costs would likely be on par with hair transplants, roughly $10,000 and up.
I’m 33 and I still have quite a full hair line. I was facing mild hair loss until recently I’m noticing a lot of shedding, I’ve been on Propecia for the past year though.

To start with, a detailed consultation helps the doctor decide whether PRP therapy is suitable for your type of hair loss. You will need to undergo several blood tests as well as a detailed hair analysis exam to ensure that your hair follicles are in the active stage. Once you are determined to be a likely candidate, the doctor will draw your blood-at least 6 vials of blood may be taken from your body. The blood is then sent to the lab for activation. The activated plasma is returned to the facility within 3-4 days where it is injected into your scalp during an in-office procedure. The entire treatment takes only 45 minutes to one hour. You can go home after the procedure but you might experience pain and swelling for 3-4 days in the areas where the plasma has been injected. Results of the therapy can be seen in as little as 2 months. You will need to take PRP injections once every 2 to 3 years to maintain the results.
