PRP and Your Hair
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an innovative, new technique for fighting hair loss. It’s a fact of life that most men, and many women, experience hair loss as they age. With his office in Foster City, Dr. Miguel Canales is one of the leading PRP therapy specialists here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Indeed, patients who are suffering from hair loss come to Dr. Canales from nearby cities such as San Mateo, Redwood City, Menlo Park, etc., but also from the “big” cities such as San Francisco or San Jose.
PRP and Hair
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which your blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into your own scalp. You can think of it as enhancing your body’s natural, reparative systems. Your own plasma helps stimulate your hair follicles to begin growing (again) or grow more strongly.
The theory is that PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood resources to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes PRP therapy for hair loss is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications. Fortunately, Dr. Canales is a specialist in not only PRP but in hair transplantation at the Silicon Valley Hair Institute. He can consult with you and you can work with him to identify the best treatment options for your hair loss, whether that is PRP therapy or a surgical hair transplant.
PRP therapy has been in use to treat hair loss since the 1980s. It is also deployed for problems such as healing injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
