San Franciscans are people who are on the ball and always ready to grasp the use of the latest technology. That goes for developments in all sorts of different fields. One of the latest technologies is for hair loss and is called PRP hair treatment right here in the San Francisco Bay Area.Oddly enough, the best PRP treatment for hair loss is not in San Francisco but in Foster City.
After all, Foster City is only a short drive from SF and takes about 25 minutes. Here you will find Silicon Valley Hair Institute with our Director Dr. Miguel Canales. When it comes to treatments for hair loss, Dr Canales is one of the foremost experts not just in California, but worldwide. For a period of ten years he was the Medical Director of Restoration Robotics Inc and he led the team which invented the ARTAS robot for hair transplantation. There is nobody who knows more about hair restoration than Dr. Canales, and he keeps up to date with every latest development. This is why he has jumped upon PRP therapy as a new and exciting way to solve the problem of hair loss once and for all.
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma and is created from a patient’s own blood. Our blood is composed of red and white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelets are the part which begins the process of coagulation of the blood when a wound occurs so is the key to healing.
How Does PRP Hair Treatment in San Francisco Work?
In order to obtain the PRP, a sample of the patient’s blood is spun in a centrifuge for about ten minutes and this has the effect of separating the blood into solids and liquids. The solid part is the platelet-rich plasma which will contain anywhere from three to five times the platelets of the original blood circulating in the body.
This is then injected into the scalp in the areas of thinning hair and it is thought that it has the effect of stimulating the growth of hair and the thickness of the hair shafts.
Book A Consultation on PRP for Your Hair
If you are looking for PRP hair treatment in San Francisco you need to book a consultation with Dr. Canales (which is free of charge, by the way) as he will need to examine your hair, since not all patients are suitable. However, if you are a suitable patient the initial treatment can be given straight away and takes about an hour. Two further treatments are needed at four-week intervals, and then every three or four months on an ongoing basis, depending upon your reaction. Each patient is followed closely in order to evaluate the effectiveness.
