We are well into the 21st century now, and people are living longer and staying active longer. They are also worrying about their appearance. Even the dating scene for the forty and fifty set is out of control! However, this doesn’t seem to have put a stop to hair loss. Many people suffer from thinning hair, and they find it embarrassing. It most certainly is, if you are fifty-something and in the dating game.
Not so many years ago, if you had thinning hair, or even went completely bald, then to put it briefly, the answer was “tough”. There was nothing that you could do about it. Would you believe that the very first hair transplant was only carried out in 1952? Even after that, hair transplants produced very odd-looking results, and it wasn’t until as recently as the early 1990’s that the first FUT – Follicular Unit Transplant – was carried out.
Technology Has Moved On In Leaps And Bounds
However, since then, technology has moved on in leaps and bounds and today there are new methods for hair restoration. These include hair transplants carried out by a robot (yes, a robot!), and a brand-new technology known as PRP, among others.
Here at Silicon Valley Hair Institute in Foster City we are bang up to date with all the new methods for hair restoration. This is not least because our director, Dr. Miguel Canales, was the man who invented the robot that carries out hair transplants! He was Medical Director of Restoration Robotics for ten years and led the team that created the ARTAS robot. His name is on no fewer than 11 patents. Where could you possibly get a better robotic hair transplant for your hair loss than from the man who invented the thing?
However, Dr. Canales doesn’t stop at robotic hair transplants. He embraces every new technology concerning new methods for hair restoration, and one of these is PRP for hair loss. This is a technology that is used for other medical purposes, but it has only recently been realized that it can be used to stimulate hair growth in areas of thinning hair. While it is indeed a new treatment, it has been showing considerable promise, and it could very well be appropriate for you too.
If you are suffering from thinning hair, or even completely bald areas, today there are answers. Dr. Canales is happy to offer all patients a completely free evaluation and consultation for your hair loss so that he can assess your individual circumstances and recommend the best treatment to restore your hair to as near its’ original condition as possible.
