If there are two things that you can say about the residents of San Francisco, they are as follows. First, they are always concerned about their looks. Not for San Francisco residents a scruffy pair of jeans and T-shirt. Well, OK, maybe on Sundays sitting in the yard, but not anywhere where it is important to look smart.
The second thing is that San Francisco residents are forward-thinking and open to new ideas and technology.
Now, unfortunately, San Francisco residents are no more immune from suffering from thinning hair than those living anywhere else. Quite a large proportion of the population does suffer from hair loss, and it is one of those things which happens. With a lot of people, it’s in the genes, which is unfortunate because thinning hair and balding patches can be extremely embarrassing, especially for women. Quite a number of men will just accept it for what it is, but for women it can be a catastrophe.
A New Technique For Dealing With Hair Loss: PRP Therapy
However, as luck would have it, there is a new technique for dealing with hair loss and it is called PRP hair treatment in San Francisco. PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma and it is a method of encouraging hair to grow in thinning areas using a specially treated small amount of the patient’s own blood.
Human blood consists of red and white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The platelets are what start the process of coagulation when a wound occurs, and it is thought that if you can increase the platelet count in a wounded area the body’s healing properties there would be accelerated. The possibilities for promoting hair growth have been explored and there have been several scientific studies carried out.
PRP hair treatment in San Francisco commences by taking a small sample of blood and placing it into a centrifuge where it is spun and separates out the solid portions of the blood from the liquid. This has the effect of increasing the platelets by 3 – 5 times and this is then put into a syringe and injected into the areas of thinning hair. This seems to stimulate the growth of miniaturized thin hair into thicker terminal hairs.
