Hair loss is a quite common problem among men and women. Nowadays, boys as young as in their late teens are fighting with hair loss and baldness issues. Surgeons don’t recommend a hair transplant to women and young boys, so they are left with only non-surgical options. And among all the non-surgical hair restoration options available today, ACell/PRP therapy is the most effective solution.
As the name suggests, it is an injection therapy that uses a mixture of ACell and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). ACell MatriStem is a naturally occurring biomatrix that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for repairing and remodeling damaged tissues, especially to help speed up healing process after a major surgery. But now FDA has approved ACell’s MatriStem for repairing damaged hair cells as well. PRP on the other hand is an all natural serum extracted from the patient’s own blood. These platelets are rich in growth factors which, when combined with ACell’s MatriStem, strengthen miniaturized hair follicles and stimulate them to produce more robust hair growth.
It is a virtually non-surgical, painless procedure that takes up to 90 minutes for its completion. The first step is extraction of blood from the patient’s body. The blood sample is then processed in a special apparatus to separate platelets from the red and white blood cells. PRP is then combined with ACell and injected into the entire scalp, which has already been numbed with topical anesthetic. Special attention is paid to the areas with hair thinning.
Recovery after PRP therapy is simple and uneventful. Immediately after the treatment, your clinician will gently massage the scalp for even distribution of ACell and PRP mixture. You may be asked to avoid washing the scalp for at least 12 hours. Also, your doctor may ask you to gently massage your scalp 3 to 4 times a day for the next few days. It will take up to a year before you will be able to see the results of the treatment. However, the good thing about PRP hair treatment is that its results are fairly lasting, and most patients don’t need a reinjection for up to 2 years.
