PRP and Hair Loss: Treatment Options in the Bay Area
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which your blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into your own scalp. You can think of it as enhancing your body’s natural, reparative systems. Your own plasma helps stimulate your hair follicles to begin growing (again) or grow more strongly.
The theory is that PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood resources to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes PRP therapy for hair loss is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications. Fortunately, Dr. Canales is a specialist in not only PRP but in hair transplantation at the Silicon Valley Hair Institute. He can consult with you and you can work with him to identify the best treatment options for your hair loss, whether that is PRP therapy or a surgical hair transplant.
PRP therapy has been in use to treat hair loss since the 1980s. It is also deployed for problems such as healing injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles.

BAY AREA FACTOID
Transportation was another issue during that time upon which hung the regional quality of life, a factor long recognized as central to the Bay Area’s prosperity. Throughout the 50s, the Council continued to take the lead in trying to find a fair and balanced route and timetable for the regional mass transit system that rapidly became part of the regional lexicon under the personable acronym “BART.”
In 1965, the Council sponsored legislation creating the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) and in 1970, promoted legislation to create the Metropolitan Transportation Committee (MTC). Real, effective regionalism was a constant in the collective thoughts of the Bay Area Council; in 1962, for example, the organization held its first “Bay Area Outlook Conference” which through the sixties became an anticipated annual event.
The Bay Area Council became one of the first organizations to recognize that the surge in regional technology development that came to be known as “Silicon Valley” was both intellectually and physically altering the face of the Bay Area.
