Are you seeking a non-invasive way to restore your receded hair line? Rejoice! You have come to the right place. We have a non-surgical hair loss solution for you named ACell/PRP Hair Loss therapy. This FDA-approved minimally invasive technique is equally popular among the doctors and patients, for it not only help prevent hair loss, but the growth factors injected into the patient’s scalp also help strengthen the miniaturized hair follicles.
What is ACell/PRP therapy?
ACell may be a new term in hair loss management, but doctors have been using it for quite a while now to speed up the wound healing process. But it was until recently that this naturally occurring cellular regeneration product was combined with the stem cells taken from the patient’s own blood. The mixture, when injected into the patient’s scalp, showed tremendous results in controlling hair loss and reversing the symptoms.
Who is a candidate?
While all non-heredity hair loss patients can benefit from ACell/PRP Therapy, an ideal candidate for the procedure is one:
- Who is not interested in hair transplant surgery
- Who is currently experiencing androgenic miniaturization of hair follicles
- Who wants to prevent hair loss from progressing
How is the procedure preformed?
In ACell/PRP Hair Loss therapy, ACell’s MatriStem is combined with the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) taken from the patient’s own blood and injected all over the scalp, focusing on the areas of need. ACell/PRP therapy is a simple 90-minute procedure performed on outpatient basis, with or without local anesthesia. First a blood sample is obtained and centrifuged in a special apparatus to separate PRP from the blood. PRP is then mixed with the ACell’s MatriStem and injected into the scalp – which has already been numbed with local anesthesia – through a series of injections all over the scalp.
How ACell/PRP Therapy works?
The application of a mixture of ACell and PRP activates the adult stem cells and promotes localized cell growth, causing the androgenic miniaturized stem cells to become healthier. This non-surgical treatment is effective for both male pattern baldness as well as female pattern baldness, with the women opting more for the procedure.
The Recovery Process
The best thing about ACell/PRP Hair Loss Treatment is that it does not involve any downtime or recovery period. You can simply come to the clinic, get the procedure done and return to your work immediately afterwards. However, your surgeon will suggest you some dos and don’ts to follow after the procedure. Stick to them if you want to get the most out of the treatment.
Dos after ACell/PRP Treatment
- Massage your scalp with soft hands to ensure thorough distribution of mixture all over the scalp
- Use cold compressions to manage any post-procedural swelling
- Take non-narcotic analgesic medication such as Ibuprofen to manage pain and discomfort
Don’ts after ACell/PRP Treatment
- Do not wash your scalp for at least 24 hours following the treatment
- Do not expose your scalp to direct sunlight for at least a couple of weeks
- Do not indulge into strenuous activities until the swelling is gone
When the results will be visible?
Results of the treatments start becoming visible after two months. However, it will take 4 to 8 months before the full effects will be evident. Through proper care and maintenance, results can be retained for up to two years without additional injections.
