Suffering from hair loss? If you’re looking for some of the newest techniques in hair restoration, ask the surgical staff at Koher Medical about Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and ACell technology. Although this technique is not FDA apporved at the moment, this is a new way to potentially target hair loss in both men and women and can be used on its own or in combination with a procedure like a hair transplant.
PRP Treatment is a new treatment that utilizes the natural healing plasma from your body. The procedure will gather a portion of your blood and then take out the inflammatory aspects, leaving behind a serum of concentrated growth factors and plasma, both of which may promote hair growth and health. This is then mixed together with Acell technology and injected directly into the scalp. ACell is an extracellular matrix (ECM) which contains a protein sequence that maximizes the body’s own regenerative capabilities.
Injections are typically made in places where there is thinning hair, or in areas that are going to be transplanted. They can also be used to embed hair grafts, as the grafts themselves can be coated in it which can possibly promote healthy growth.
Koher Medical notes that patients can potentially expect the following benefits from PRP and ACell injections at Koher Medical:
While it doesn’t shorten a healing or scabbing period, PRP and ACell typically yield better results than other methods.
Whether you’re interested in stand-alone PRP and ACell injections to promote hair growth, or if you want to use it in conjunction with your hair transplant, Koher Medical can help. Look over our FAQ section to learn more, and then contact us at 336-792-9591 to schedule your free consultation.
