Non Surgical Hair Restoration
Dr. Benjamin Bieber, M.D. applies ACell + PRP Hair Restoration to repair damaged hair follicles and create consistent new hair growth. When a person suffers from hair loss and hair thinning, the cells of different hair follicles are damaged and unable to produce new and thick hair growth. ACell + PRP repairs these hair follicles at the cellular level by fostering new cell birth and these new healthy cells replace the follicle's current damaged cells. Therefore, the hair follicle, because of cellular regeneration, transitions from an unhealthy follicle to a vibrant and healthy one and when a hair follicle is healthy again, it can do what it is supposed to naturally, which is produce new and dense hair growth. This in summary is how ACell + PRP reverses the process of hair loss and creates consistent hair growth.
How ACell + PRP Hair Treatment Improves Hair Loss?
ACell is a MatriStem technology (an FDA approved medical device) that works at the cellular level to repair and remodel damaged tissues. When applied to the scalp, hair follicles are repaired and replaced with healthy cells as Stem Cells transform into the type of tissue the body needs to repair itself.
PRP Treatment is a non-surgical method aimed at stimulating “new” and “denser” hair growth. There are over 30 growth factors in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to repair blood vessel damage. For example, PDGF (Platelet Derived Growth Factor), VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) are just some of the growth factors that provide nutrition to the cells in the scalp, promote new blood supply to hair follicles, and reduce inflammation of the scalp creating healthy, productive hair follicles. The result is a scalp that is rejuvenated and able to produce new and thicker hair.
Something New: What is Protein Concentrate?
We now have available the latest technology to take extra blood plasma that we "previously threw away" and put it thru a special filtration system removing water from that plasma. This process gives us the ability to concetrate many helpful proteins present in your blood plasma and add them to the scalp for a better success rate.
Hair Conditions Showing Improvement
Spot Baldness (Alopecia Areata - AA):
Spot baldness is a highly inflammatory autoimmune disease where hair follicle stem cells are dormant. One study demonstrated that growth factors in Platelet Rich Plasma turned on the dormant stem cells 60% of the time in AA. In more than 60 % of cases, experimenters found a significant growth of hair in bald spots with the use of PRP in both males and females.
In over 70% of cases there was a reduction in hair loss, itching, and burning (if present), and a reduction in the number of damaged hairs and exclamation point hairs.
Male Pattern Baldness (Androgenetic Alopecia - AGA):
Men typically display a hairline recession at the temples and crown balding.
ACell + PRP in hair restoration has multiple advantages. Numerous studies demonstrate the use of PRP not only increases the follicular unit yield by 15.1%, suggesting an increase of 480 new hairs per every 100cm2 transplanted surface area but also leads to diminished scalp redness, crusting, and less patient discomfort from swelling.
Female Pattern Baldness (Feminine Androgenetic Alopecia – AGA):
Women normally present diffusely thin hair over the top of their scalps.
ACell + PRP is demonstrated in cases of feminine pattern baldness (AGA with Ludwig grades l-lll) to increase hair growth and reduce hair thinning.
Possible Side Effects of ACell + PRP Treatment:
- Mild swelling of the forehead following lidocaine local anesthesia. If this occurs, usually resolves spontaneously one day after the treatment.
- Headache that if occurs, resolves usually after one day after the treatment.
- Possible scalp tenderness following injections of ACell + PRP.
