ACell + PRP Injections vs. Hair Transplant


The fact is, both hair loss treatments, ACell + PRP Injections and Hair Transplants procedures are good and most effective in giving you fuller head of hair.

Due to the advancement in the hair loss treatments, ACell + PRP therapy has been introduced as a non-surgical procedure, as many patients are afraid of opting for a surgical hair loss treatment such as hair transplant. So for them, Acell+PRP therapy is a better alternative to hair transplants.

ACell + PRP Injections:

ACell + PRP injection therapy is the blend of ACell and platelet-rich plasma (which is extracted from your own blood). ACell works at the follicular level to stimulate the hair follicles tissues for hair regrowth process. It also helps in the activation of the dormant, weak and damaged hair follicles.

Stimulation of dead hair follicles through ACell + PRP therapy injections, helps in extending the life cycle of hair strands and results in the reduced hair thinning and produces healthier hair by improving the quality and boosting up your shrunken hair follicles.

Miniaturized Hair:

Miniaturized hair can really make the difference when it’s treated with ACell + PRP therapy. If you have damaged and dead hair then don’t worry, because ACell + PRP injections can bring them back to life.

Tiny hair on the scalp means that you still have many actively generating hair follicles but due to your genetic makeup or other internal/external factors, their growth cycle has been miniaturized.

But when they are treated with Acell + PRP therapy, inactive hair follicles are regenerated and normal hair regrowth cycle is restored.

After getting ACell + PRP therapy, you will be able to see better results after some time. ACell + PRP produces does not produce hair in reality, it just helps boosting miniaturized hair regrowth that weren’t re-growing before.
