About the Procedure
PRP has been used for hairless treatment and can also be combined with Acellular matrix to encourage better and longer lasting results. Acell is a porcine derived powder that has regenerative properties similar to stem cells. When combined with PRP concentrate, the serum can then be injected into the scalp to encourage hair growth. The PRP and Acell matrix helps to heal damaged hair follicles which in turn allows for more, and thicker hair growth. Before injection, a small amount of blood will be drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood will be placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma, or PRP. The PRP will then be mixed with the powder Acell product. The serum can then be injected into parts of the scalp that are experiencing hair thinning.
The goal of ACell injection in combination with PRP is to reverse the early stages of hair loss created by thinning hair, bald spots and receding hairlines.
No recovery needed.
The ideal candidate for ACell and PRP injections for hair loss is in the early stages of hair loss.
Not Recommended For
ACell and PRP injections are not recommended for patients with critical low platelet count, hypofibrinogenemia, hemodynamic instability, or who have hair loss as a result of medication, stress, or medical treatment as these can be reversed.
Side effects from ACell and PRP injections for hair loss may include minimal pain, pinpoint bleeding, and redness when the injections are being delivered. Some patients comment on a “full” or “tight” feeling in the scalp immediately after injections that can last up to about 1 day. Rarely, patients will complain of a mild headache the next day.
