Turn thinning hair into beautiful hair
Stem cells are a unique, powerful type of cell present in each of our bodies that fight disease, repair damage and re-grow important cells such as those necessary for the growth of skin and hair. Hair regeneration is a treatment for thinning hair and hair loss using ACell, a new FDA approved Extracellular Matrix tissue-regenerating product that is being used extensively in surgery to stimulate stem cells and enhance success in heart bypass and organ transplantation. ACell is combined with the patient’s Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), an isolated serum from a patient’s own blood and then injected into the scalp. The injection repairs damaged tissue at the follicular level and is the closest researchers have come to hair cloning. This advanced treatment promotes the growth of hair, improves miniaturized follicles, and extends the lifecycle of your hair strands.

The PRP + ACell Procedure
We begin with a small collection of your blood. Special laboratory technology is used to separate the platelet rich plasma from your blood. The PRP provides the foundation for a solution loaded with growth factor, naturally occurring chemicals and hormones that foster hair rejuvenation. The PRP is then mixed with calcium chloride. The higher concentrations of calcium chloride cause the platelets to react as if a tissue injury has occurred. The platelets then release at least 7 different growth factors (receptor proteins) that trigger stem cells to grow younger tissue. Your PRP is mixed with ACell and then injected into your scalp targeting the areas where your current hair growth is diminishing. PRP + ACell causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. You leave our clinic looking no different in appearance than when you came in. The entire procedure takes about 90 minutes and is virtually painless. You can resume normal daily activity immediately upon leaving the clinic. New hair growth can be seen as early as 1 month and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.
