Thanks for the query. Certain Dermatologists advice procedures like PRP therapy, platelet rich plasma therapy when needed which may accelerate the rate of hair growth. PRP needs multiple sessions roughly at 6 weeks intervals. PRP is rich in components needed for the hair to grow and become healthier. However, it is a top-up treatment and has to be done in parallel to the main medications for hair fall. The treatment commonly consists of usage of oral medication (Finasteride) and topical lotion (Minoxidil in 5% strength). Minoxidil is recommended by US-FDA for indefinite usage. Certain dermatologists supplement biotin, hair serum. Minoxidil is for indefinite usage in patients of male pattern baldness as per current medical literature and has to become a part of life, if you wish to have a good hair volume. It gradually enlarges the miniaturized hair follicle to full grown hairs. 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.
