If you are a man or woman with early-to-mid stages of thinning hair, you may be a candidate for a new “hair cloning” technology called Acell + PRP Hair Regeneration. Best of all, the procedure starts at only $1,750.
Using a material called “ACell" combined with stem cells from a patient’s own blood, we can treat different types of hair loss and dramatically increase the volume of hair. ACell + PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Injection regenerates hair by activating stem cells in those dormant hair follicles. This treatment is considered by many doctors as the first significant treatment for hair loss since the development of hair transplants and medications. That's because the treatment is like no other -- it's fast, discreet, and requires very minimal downtime, if any.
ACell is an FDA approved wound-healing powder that when mixed with a patient’s own PRP (stem cells) and injected into the scalp, improves hair follicle stem cell function and growth. Within just a few months, patients see hair growth where previously the hairs were thin. For patients in the early-to-mid stages of hair loss, the hair growth results after an ACell + PRP injection treatment are significant and last for three to five years. Periodic follow up booster injections are a great way to maintain new hair growth and prevent additional loss. Previously, women with hereditary hair loss were not good candidates for standard and older hair transplantation methods, ACell + PRP offers an exciting new treatment option to help thicken hair, decrease visibility of the scalp, and minimize hair loss and shedding.
