“Similar to how a flu shot can prevent one from catching the flu, ACell and PRP injections can help prevent further hair loss and help restore one’s hair"
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 28, 2011
Hair loss may be a thing of the past for a certain heir to the throne and commoners alike thanks to a vaccination that can help prevent and in some cases reverse hair loss. Gary Hitzig, M.D., a leading hair restoration specialist and pioneer of the ACell / platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, has been invited to instruct a group of U.K. doctors and medical professionals at The Private Clinic in May on this breakthrough in hair restoration therapy.
Dr. Hitzig's peers, as well as the medical community at large, are following his hair restoration therapy and consistent results in both men and women experiencing genetic and other forms of hair loss. ACell has been available only in the U.S. and has five FDA allowances, but the British Medical Board recently approved the use and availability of ACell in the U.K. and Europe through Dr. Hitzig. The Private Clinic, the largest U.K. cosmetic practice, will be the first medical practice outside the U.S. to be trained in the use of ACell-PRP injections.
MatriStem MicroMatrix, a product of regenerative medicine innovator, ACell, Inc., is a wound healing powder that promotes healing and tissue growth. Dr. Hitzig has spent years researching and proving that when MatriStem MicroMatrix is combined with PRP, it can help to both prevent and regenerate hair in men and women experiencing genetic hair loss.
Hitzig discovered that if you dissolve the MatriStem powder in a specialized blood serum rich in the patient’s adult stem cells and inject it into the scalp, the combination acts like a hair growth accelerator. Many hair transplant patients experienced significant hair re-growth sooner and the wound where donor hair had been taken and transplanted was completely healed with little or no signs of a scarring.
“This revolutionary injectable combination of ACell and PRP may be the answer to restoring hair growth for those in the early to moderate stages of hair loss,” said Dr. Hitzig. “Similar to how a flu shot can prevent one from catching the flu, ACell and PRP injections can help prevent further hair loss and help restore one’s hair. I appreciate the interest and support from the British Medical Board, who in conjunction with my supervision, are making this treatment available to people in the U.K. through The Private Clinic.”
Said Hitzig with a smile, “And in case Prince William is interested in regaining more hair in his crown when he returns from his honeymoon, I’ll be sure to bring some extra ACell with me.”
