The Benefits Of PRP Hair Restoration After Hair Transplant Surgery

By | Hair Restoration

Hair transplant surgery is a great option for patients in the more advanced stages of hair loss. At this point, PRP hair restoration may not provide the results patients desire. But, what about after surgery? Can PRP hair restoration help retain hair after transplant surgery? 

The short answer is: yes! PRP hair restoration can contribute to continued hair retention and growth after hair transplantation. It is best to wait until hair grafts are fully secure and the scalp healed from surgery to begin PRP injection therapies. Due to the previous hair restoration surgery, patients seeking PRP after hair transplant will likely need only a couple touch up treatments per year. Although, this will vary based on the patient and is best determined during a consultation. 

PRP hair restoration works by stimulating collagen production in the scalp. This can maintain the quality of hair follicles as well as repair damaged ones. While hair transplant surgery restores lost hair, it often cannot fully stop hair loss because the causes are usually genetic. Using PRP hair restoration after hair transplant can lead to reduced loss over time and overall slow down the rate of loss.

PRP With ACell: How They Work Together

By | Hair Restoration

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.
