Q. What Other Hair Restoration Procedures Do We Offer?..
Oct 10 2016
ACell + PRP Injection
In addition to hair transplants, here at Beverly Hills Hair Restoration, we offer an ACell Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment. Dr. Kahen is the pioneer in PRP and has given amazing results to his patients. ACell uses the body’s own tissue regeneration mechanism to strengthen small hairs. It also stimulates the growth of new follicles through stem cell activation that is through the scalp. PRP is concentrated blood plasma that contains five to 10 times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. PRP contains white and red blood cells and it contains cells known as platelets.
Platelets play a significant role in the human body. They are the reason your body has the ability to heal itself at the site of a wound. Platelets contain growth factors that promote regeneration of the cells in the body and also assist in clotting the blood. This is essential for the body to heal wounds.
We combine ACell with PRP and inject it into the affected area. ACell + PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. So in essence this treatment thickens hair follicles thus improving hair density, reverses hair thinning, and accelerating healing when used during hair restoration surgery. This procedure takes about an hour to an hour and a half. It is very important to know that this hair restoration procedure is only for the existing hair on the scalp, and does not make the hair that has already fallen out grow back. It is a great treatment to receive in conjunction with hair transplantation.
