​​​ Thanks for the query. ​​ ​​Hair loss is an increasing p​​roblem in today's society. You should rule out a condition called Scalp psoriasis where the management is totally treatment. For female pattern hair loss ,the treatment typically consists of topical lotion (Minoxidil). Based on the cause of hair loss, certain spec​​ific med​​ications can also be started. ​​​​It also depends on the age of t​​he patient and if planning for conception or not. Various issues need to be decided before initiating the treatment. The dosage and duration is decided​​ by your dermatologist. You need to be patient with the treatment protocol as it takes months to see initial improvement. Certain derma​tologists supplement biotin, hair serum and advice procedures like PRP therapy which may accelerate the rate of hair growth. PRP needs multiple sessions roughly at 6 weeks intervals. PRP therapy is increasingly being accepted by dermatologists all over the world. Apart from active pharmaceutical medicines, a healthy diet and lifestyle is mandatory to achieve results. Best wishes Dr MK Agarwala ​
