PRP Is a New Procedure That Is Used for Replacing Lost Hair

PRP for women with thinning hair.

If you live in South San Francisco and suffer from hair loss, you are by no means alone. Recent figures have shown that some 40% of men are showing signs of hair loss by the age of 35, while the same percentage of women are suffering by the age of 40. Those figures increase rapidly as you age.PRP therapy for hair loss

Of course, hair loss is something that affects people in different ways. Some people just shrug their shoulders and get on with life. They take the attitude that things are the way they are, and there is nothing that they can do about it anyway. Of course, while the first part of that is correct, the second is not: there are several things that you can do about hair loss.

Then there is a group of people who are mildly affected by it. They feel a certain amount of discomfort and try to comb their hair or wear it in a way that covers up any bald spots as far as possible.

The third group is one whom it affects badly. They really feel embarrassed at their lack of hair and desperately want to do something about it.

Now if you fall into the first group, then in that sense you are lucky. It doesn’t bother you particularly, so you just get on with things. However, if you fall into either of the other two groups there are actions that you can take.

Both of these involve a trip down the 101 to Foster City where you will find us at Silicon Valley Hair Institute. Our director is Dr. Miguel Canales and he is the man who led the team which invented the ARTAS robot for hair transplants. This has very many advantages over having a manual hair transplant.

However, there is also now a new treatment for hair restoration which doesn’t involve a transplant and it is known as PRP for hair restoration in South San Francisco.

PRP for hair restoration in South San Francisco involves the use of a small amount of your own blood which is then treated so that the platelets in it are up to five times the number in the blood flowing through your body. This is then injected into your scalp and promotes the growth of new hair in the bald areas.

Dr. Canales can provide both hair transplants using the ARTAS robot and PRP therapy. If you are not certain which would be best for you- PRP for hair restoration in South San Francisco or an ARTAS transplant – Dr. Canales is happy to provide all patients with a totally free consult.
