During some hair restoration techniques, platelet rich plasma is combined with ACell. PRP comes from the patient’s blood on the day of treatment. ACell is a type of stem cell derived from pig bladders. When injected into the scalp, these two regenerative tools can provide visible results and hair growth.
Platelet rich plasma acts as fertilizer for your hair follicles. When injected, it tells your body that there has been an injury. Your body then sends defenses such as white blood cells and proteins to heal the microscopic injury. Additionally, PRP itself contains growth factors and hormones that support hair growth. This can help heal damaged hair follicles and promote the growth of new hair in the treatment area.
ACell provides the topsoil for your new hair. When your scalp has damaged (but not inactive) hair follicles, skin issues, or your hair loss is more extensive, ACell can bond with your existing skin to provide a new, nutrient-rich environment that can better support hair.
When you choose to combine PRP and ACell during your hair restoration treatment, you receive the most advanced injectable hair restoration procedure available. To schedule your consultation at PRP In Seattle, call us at (206) 279-2112 or contact us online.
