“I feel that I’ve gotten some confidence back…”
Female hair loss can be a difficult topic to discuss, and taking that first step toward treatment is extremely hard. We are lucky to have some patients that are willing to share their experiences to help others. Today we hear from Jennifer, a patient at Medi Tresse since 2016.
“I had been diagnosed with alopecia (female pattern hair loss) and was told by my dermatologist that due to my genetics, there was not much that could be done to improve my situation. It had been suggested that I try Rogaine which seemed to negatively react with my sensitive skin and I found that there was no way that I could do that treatment twice a day because the solution was extremely itchy and greasy looking. I felt as though I tried every special shampoo and nutrition supplement out there until I finally decided to contact Medi Tresse. I knew something had to be done because my confidence was suffering, and I was concerned that others could “see” my thinning.
A female co-worker had a hair transplant and let me know of a newer procedure that she had heard about (Platelet Rich Plasma therapy) and suggested that I do some research and go for a consult. A little over a year ago I finally went for a complimentary consult, discussing many different non-invasive options (PRP, light therapy, 82M, etc.) with the nurse practitioner, who was so patient, kind and understanding of my situation. I asked for clinical trial information and that was gladly supplied to me. After chatting with my husband, I decided to invest in myself and give (the three) PRP (treatments) a try.
It is now one year later from my first treatment. I just had my annual follow-up appointment and I must say that it is amazing to see the before and after photos side by side because when you see yourself in the mirror every day it can be hard to measure progress… I feel that I’ve gotten some confidence back and with the support of the staff at Medi Tresse it has made the process so much more bearable.
I’m writing this testimonial to help other women like myself. It’s an embarrassing topic, but so important to know that you are not alone and that there may be a solution out there that can help you.” – Jennifer
