Regrow Your Own Hair Without Surgery!
Hair loss is one of those unfortunate facts of life that all-too-many men—and women—will likely face at some point in their lives. According to the American Hair Loss Association, approximately two-thirds of men will begin to lose their hair by age 35 and by age 50 that number increases to about 85%. Women are not exempt from hair loss either. By the time they reach age 50 approximately half of all women will be dealing with some degree of hair loss. While baldness most often affects us when we get older, for some the signs begin to manifest themselves before age 21. Yet despite these staggering statistics, not everyone is onboard with the idea of having an invasive procedure to restore the hair they have lost over time. For patients seeking a non-surgical solution to their hair loss, there is a revolutionary new option offered at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery: ACell + PRP Injection Therapy.*
What Is ACell + PRP Injection Therapy?
This innovative therapy works to preserve and thicken hair in patients suffering from hair loss.* ACell’s MatriStem technology works at the cellular level to help repair damaged tissues. The system works by activating adult stem cells already present in our bodies. This process regenerates dormant follicular tissue which, in turn, produces hair growth. When combined with powerful growth factors activated within the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) in your own blood, the result is natural stimulation of the hair follicles in the scalp. This new technology forms a regenerative powerhouse that can help stop hair loss and prompt regrowth of new hair follicles in areas previously devoid of hair.*
At the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, with offices located in both Richmond and Tysons Corner, Virginia, Board Certified plastic surgeons Dr. Reps and Burton Sundin are excited to offer this solution to patients currently suffering from hair loss. We understand that this topic is a sensitive and important one that you struggle with on a daily basis. You can rest assured that this is just as important to us! Our professional, highly-trained, welcoming staff looks forward to helping you achieve your hair restoration goals without the downtime of more invasive techniques.*
What Can You Expect From Your ACell + PRP Hair Regeneration Procedure?
After a thorough consultation to discuss your specific goals and desires, we will begin your ACell + PRP process by acquiring a blood sample from you. A local anesthetic will be applied to your desired treatment area. The ACell and PRP that were derived from your blood sample are then administered to the affected area via a series of injections. This entire process generally takes about 90 minutes. There may be mild swelling afterwards that should resolve within 48 hours. Avoiding rigorous activity during this time is recommended. Other than that, there is no other downtime or noticeable effects of the procedure that would impede your daily activities. You can wash your hair normally after the injections are complete.*
New hair growth may be seen as early as two months, but it typically takes 4-8 months for the growth to become evident and it can continue to improve for up to a year. Many patients achieve long-lasting results from one treatment, but follow-up visits will be scheduled to track your progress to determine whether additional procedures may be required to achieve the look you desire. It is important to remember that individual results may vary.*
ACell + PRP is a non-surgical alternative to hair restoration, but it can also be utilized in conjunction with other hair restoration techniques to help enhance results. When combined with FUE Hair Restoration, for instance, it has been shown to increase graft survival rates, improve the quality of existing hair, and promote rapid healing of the donor area. *
