For most people out there a surgical solution for aesthetic changes is not their ideal choice of treatment. If you are among the many people suffering from a receding hairline and thinning hair but are not ready yet for a full-on surgery, then non-invasive hair restoration method maybe the thing for you. PRP and A-Cell injections for hair loss are an outstandingly successful non-surgical procedure aimed at restoring hair quality and volume.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma which is derived from the patient’s own blood and takes no time at all to prepare in the surgeon’s office. Injecting the PRP into the scalp stimulates regeneration in stem cells and counters hair fall while triggering newer growth. A-Cell is also essential n laying down the nutrients and extracellular structure to rejuvenate tissue in the scalp needed for hair growth.
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a serum derived from the patient’s own blood and is prepared right away by the surgeon through a simple method that will be explained in brief detail later on. Concentrated plasma serum is rich in growth components essential for newly grafted/unhealthy hair follicles to restore definition and quality improved hair growth.
How PRP Hair Treatment is performed?
With a sample extracted from the patient by an assistant or nurse, the blood is then put through a centrifuging process in a specifically designed apparatus that separates the blood into different layers. One layer is that containing the PRP serum. The serum is then loaded onto a syringe while local anesthesia is injected into the scalp. Once the anesthetic takes effect, the PRP is administered in a uniform pattern throughout the scalp through various entry points especially where there is excessive balding or recession. As compared to hair transplant surgery, there is minimal downtime and recovery time involved.
What is A-Cell
A-Cell is animal derived protein that exists in powdered solid form. It is FDA approved for the treatment of damaged tissue. It naturally designed to help trigger stem cell growth hence being to stimulate the regeneration of inactive hair follicles boosting hair growth.
How does it Work?
PRP and A-Cell can be combined to be administered through injections for optimal hair growth boost. Once local anesthesia is injected into the scalp to numb any pain during treatment, the syringes loaded with a solution of A-Cell & PRP are applied where the treatment is needed as well as the entire scalp. The entire procedure will take anywhere between 45 – 90 minutes.
Preparing for PRP A-Cell treatment for Hair Loss:
A-Cell and PRP therapy for hair loss does not require a long per-operative care list. The procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis and does not require any incisions or extended hospital stay. However to ensure smooth working and better results without any possibilities of complications it is best to follow a few pre-operative precautions.
- Abstain from the use of anti-coagulants, aspirin-based medications and other over-the-counter meds for at least a week before treatment.
- Quit smoking and alcohol intake for at least one week prior to treatment.
- Enjoy a healthy meal on the morning of your procedure and remember to keep yourself hydrated (coffee and fizzy drinks don’t count as hydration).
- Wash your head and scalp with anti-bacterial soap on the night or morning before treatment.
Recovery and Results
A minimal recovery period is associated with PRP A-Cell hair restoration therapy. Once treatment has concluded do not wet your scalp or wash it for at least 12 hours afterwards. For the next two days you will feel your scalp feeling sore and slightly swollen, but that is only natural. You can resume normal work routine right after treatment but avoid exposing your scalp to direct sunlight or UV exposure. Hair regeneration will however take longer as the PRP A-Cell start taking effect. Growth begins after 2 or 3 months and end results are obvious after a period of 6 to 8 months from treatment. People’s satisfaction and results in the long run vary from one patient to another but on an average a single session can you set up for two years of healthy hair growth.
The benefits include no extra maintenance such as that in hair transplant surgery. The results are very satisfactory in almost all cases and further sessions can further improve quality of hair growth over time.
