Let’s face it: lots of people suffer from thinning hair, and many of them go bald. Walk down any street and you will see people who are nearly bald or completely bald. Unfortunately, it is in the genes in many cases, and there isn’t much you can do about that. If that is the way that you are, then that is the way that you are. Sad, but true. (more…)
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. (more…)
Suffering from thinning hair is something that can cause many people considerable embarrassment, especially women. Although men tend to suffer from hair loss more than women, nonetheless a lot of women suffer from it also, and feel the need to do something about it. (more…)
Losing hair can be very depressing, but unfortunately, a very large percentage of the population (both men AND women) does lose hair, so if it happens to you, at least you are not alone. However, that may not be much consolation. (more…)

The Bay Area is big – both in terms of size and population. It covers some 6,900 square miles, and the population is a shade under 7.8 million – that’s up from 7.1 million at the 2010 census. However, fortunately, when you want hair restoration Bay Area, Silicon Valley Hair Institute is right in the middle in Foster City, so wherever you are you don’t have to travel very far.
Yes, we do hair restoration Bay Area. Yes, we do PRP therapy. And yes, we do both male and female hair transplants. And while we are on the subject of female hair transplants, we also do hair transplants “down there”. Fashions come and fashions go, and for several years, women have been encouraged to undergo waxing and remain clean shaven in the pubic region. However, several celebrities – among them Gwyneth Paltrow, Kourtney Kardashian, Lady Gaga, and Cameron Diaz – have begun to go back to the natural look, and many more women now want to follow suit.
We use the ARTAS robot to carefully remove hair follicles from the scalp and implant them into the pubic area one at a time under a comfortable local anesthetic. This leaves no visible scarring on the scalp, and the hair will start to grow in 3 – 4 months and will restore the lush natural look permanently.
We also carry out eyebrow transplants for both men and women. The most important aspect of an eyebrow transplant is to follow the natural direction of the hair very closely. Eyebrow hair grows relatively flat to the skin, in contrast to scalp hair which can grow at an angle of as much as 45° to the scalp. So the most important aspect of an eyebrow transplant is to follow the natural angle of the hair very closely. Only individual hairs can be transplanted, and this means that the hair follicles from the scalp, which can contain up to four hairs, have to be divided up into individual hairs.
Another factor is that natural eyebrow hair only grows for about four months before the hair enters the resting phase and then falls out. The hair on the scalp can grow for between three and seven years, which is why it grows so much longer. This means that the transplanted hair will have to be trimmed every so often in order to maintain the natural look.
