PRP injections for hair loss in the Bay Area are an exciting new way of tackling the problem of thinning hair, but they may not be suitable for all patients. There is no doubt that, at Silicon Valley Hair Institute in Foster City, we are getting a considerable number of inquiries about them.
Hair loss can happen to almost anyone, but people can have varying reactions to it. Some just shrug their shoulders and carry on regardless, but unfortunately, for others, it can be extremely embarrassing and result in a considerable loss of self-confidence. If you fall into the latter category, then PRP injections for hair loss in the Bay Area may be the answer.
However, be aware that everyone is different. Although your hair loss may be similar to another person’s, you have different genes, you may be from a different background, you live differently, you eat foods which others may not, and so on. All of this means that where PRP injections for hair loss in the Bay Area may work great for one person, they may not work as well for you. Equally, they could work a lot better for you.
The only way to find out is to come into Silicon Valley Hair Institute in Foster City (1241 E. Hillsdale Blvd, Suite 190, Foster City, CA 94404, by the way) and meet our Dr Miguel Canales who is the expert, and can assess your individual situation and whether PRP for hair loss is the right course for you or whether another therapy would be better.
PRP Is A New Technology
If you have not heard of PRP therapy before it would not be surprising, because it is a new technology that has only undergone a handful of scientific assessments as yet. However, it is proving very successful with some patients. Here is how it works:
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, and it is made out of your own blood! Don’t worry. Only a little is needed. This is put into a centrifuge which separates the solid parts of the blood from the liquid parts. Then we add certain compounds to the solid parts, and this produces plasma which contains up to five times as many platelets as the original sample.
The PRP is then injected into your head in the places where the hair is thinning. The effect of platelets is to begin the process of healing a wound, and so when the platelets in an area are considerably increased it is thought that the wound healing will be far faster.
This is why PRP therapy can be used successfully in conjunction with hair transplantation as it promotes the growth of the hair.
If this excites you, as it does us, you need to book an appointment – entirely free of charge – with Dr. Canales, when he can then assess if you are a suitable subject and answer all your questions.
