ACell and Hair Transplant Surgery combination for receding hairline treatment has gained tremendous popularity in the UAE over the last couple of years. It is a relatively new but highly effective combination of two surgical and non-surgical hair restoration techniques, which has been warmly welcomed by the hair loss patients as well as the doctors around the globe. If you are also planning to undergo a hair transplant surgery to restore your receded hairline, combine it with ACell shots and double up the success rate of your surgery.
A hair transplant surgery is without any doubt the best treatment to grow permanent hair on bald patches. But like any other procedure, it is also has some drawbacks that you have to accept to be satisfied with results. One drawback, which the surgeons and researchers have been trying to fix since the advent of surgical hair restoration is that not all the transplanted grafts grow hair. The graft survival rate varies from person to person depending on the hair transplantation technique used.
Graft survival rate is particularly low in case of modern Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant, where a large number of grafts get damaged and traumatized during extraction and transplantation phases. A latest study has shown that at least 30% of grafts do not grow hairs in case of FUE transplantation. In some cases the number of grafts that potentially heal and grow hair drops to 50%, which is a quite intimidating figure.
To overcome this low graft survival rate problem, surgeons and researchers have been working day and night, because client satisfaction matters a lot, after all. Recently they succeeded in finding the solution in ACell Extracellular Matrix. A protein-rich powder which is mixed with Platelet Rich Plasma and injected into the scalp to speed up the recovery process post-transplant and increase the graft survival rate by healing the damaged grafts.
ACell is the latest development in stem cell therapy. It is developed and manufactured from natural protein known for its tissue healing properties. Surgeons have long been using it for management of surgical wounds, trauma injuries and burns, but it was only until recently that hair transplant surgeons started using ACell and Hair Transplant Surgery combination for receding hairline treatment to enhance outcomes of the surgery. Initial experiments were extremely positive and heartening and now the combination is being used all over the world, including Dubai.
The surgery is performed as usual, starting with initial consultations, selecting the donor area, extracting healthy donor grafts from balding resistant areas and transplanting them in the hairless patches. Both FUT and FUE hair transplant techniques can be used for this purpose. The patient is allowed to heal normally for a couple of weeks and then ACell/PRP shots are administered into the entire scalp, focusing on the donor and recipient areas. ACell is known for its ability to heal damaged tissues, whereas Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – a serum obtained by processing the patient’s own blood – is rich in growth factors and allows the grafts to grow to their fullest.
ACell and Hair Transplant combination now offers the best opportunity to not only grow the transplanted hairs to their fullest and speed up the recovery process, but also to minimize the chances of shock loss by strengthening the existing hairs in the donor and recipient areas.
