Hair loss is something that affects a lot of people as they grow older, and some of them simply accept it as a fact of life and carry on regardless. However, for other people it can be most distressing, and cause a loss of self-confidence.
Hair loss in men and women has a tendency to be different. In men, it often results in a receding hairline and bald areas, while in women it produces areas of thinning hair on the top and sides of the head, while the hairline remains the same in many cases.
Now folks on the Peninsula are high tech. We all know that. It’s the home of Google and Facebook, after all. Many are willing and interested to try the “latest” new thing. Well PRP hair treatment on the SF Peninsula is a new treatment that’s very exciting for thinning hair. It’s especially appropriate for women, as women’s hair loss tends to be thinning rather than all in one place as for men.

PRP hair treatment on the SF peninsula involves taking a sample of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge. This separates the solid and liquid parts of the blood, the solid part containing between three and five times the number of platelets that are in the blood circulating in your body. Hence the name PRP – Platelet-Rich Plasma.
This has platelet activators added to it and the PRP is then injected into the areas of thinning hair on the scalp. PRP works best on areas of thinning hair, rather than those which are totally bald. Two further treatments are required after four and eight weeks, and then at three-month intervals depending upon your response. It is conjectured that PRP treatment stimulates the growth of thin miniature hairs causing them to grow into thicker, terminal hairs.
While this is a new treatment and thus insufficient studies have been carried out, it is certainly an exciting one and something that you may want to consider.
