What is ACell Prp treatment for hair loss?

To begin with let’s first understand what is ACell and Prp individually.

ACell is an FDA approved device which is used in many surgical procedures that regenerates and remodel the tissue. When injected into the area it activates the stem cells which solely are incapable of activating new tissue growth. It renewals the growth of the damaged tissues and results in the rejuvenation of the weakened tissue thereby producing strong hair growth in the area which was once effected by hair loss.

Prp is platelet rich plasma present in the blood of an individual. Blood contains liquid called plasma and in this liquid are some solid components such as red and white cells, it also contains platelets which are rich in protein that are helpful for the growth of tissue and healing of injuries.

How is a Prp prepared?

Blood is drawn from the patient and the platelets are separated from the blood cells. The concentration of platelets is increased through a process called centrifugation. Increased concentration of platelets are inserted back in the blood.
