PRP-ACell Injections with Hair Transplant

Hair Transplant Surgery has been successfully helping people grow hair on their bald thatches for more than six decades now. Recently, a new treatment, ACell/PRP For Hair Restoration, has been introduced to help hair loss patients grow thicker and denser heads of hair. The treatment has tremendous success for people with significant hair thinning, but it does not do much when tried on patients with shining bare scalps. To help people struggling with baldness, a new treatment has been developed in which the aforementioned injection therapy is combined with surgical hair restoration.

Shortcomings of Hair Transplant

A hair transplant surgery is, without a doubt, the best standalone treatment for baldness. But the fact is that not all transplanted hair follicles survive. The graft survival rate in FUE hair transplant is particularly low, with about 30% of the follicular grafts not growing hair. It is either due to follicles’ transection or because the roots of the donor grafts get damaged during extraction. And even after that, the number of grafts that potentially heal and grow new hair drops down to 50%. During the extraction and transplantation phase, some healthy hairs get traumatized, resulting in a collateral loss.

PRP-ACell Injections Overcoming Hair Transplant Shortcomings

Now, with the advent of PRP-ACell Injections, the shortcomings of hair transplant surgery can be effectively addressed. Patients are injected with PRP-ACell shots within three months after a hair transplant. It is administered into the scalp during the healing phase. ACell’s Extracellular Matrix and Platelet-Rich Plasma’s growth factors help the grafts grow to their fullest, especially after an FUE hair transplant. PRP-ACell mixture heals the damaged grafts and protects and thickens those at risk of thinning.

PRP-ACell Injections with Hair Transplant now provide an opportunity to save the existing healthy hair (from shock loss) and maximize graft survivability. Since ACell’s MatriStem has the ability to repair and remodel damaged skin tissues, it also speeds up the recovery process after hair transplant.
