In the last couple of decades, there has been an unbelievable progress in the hair transplant surgeries. The effectiveness of these procedures has been ever improving while minimizing the invasiveness associated with them. More and more people are now able to get their natural charm back with these hair transplants.
However, there are many that prefer non-surgical options. Medications such as Finasteride and Minoxidil are good solutions but need long term usage and have side effects. Hair restoration systems too work well but have a relatively short life.
There is now a new solution, known as the ACell/PRP injections for hair loss that provides the perfect fix for such people. It helps the scalp in growing new hair and help weak follicles to grow stronger. This brand new hair rejuvenation procedure is available exclusively at Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic in all of UAE and the Gulf.
What is ACell/PRP?
ACell’s MatriStem technology is FDA approved and is used to repair damaged tissue. Its very nature allows it to help regenerate dormant follicles, which improves the hair growth. PRP stand Platelet Rich Plasma. It is derived by taking the blood of the patient looking to get hair restoration. It has lots of goodness for the scalp and adds a lot of health to the follicles.
How does it Work?
The first step of the treatment is to administer local anesthesia to the scalp so that no pain sensation is felt by the patient. The ACell + PRP combination injections are injected into the scalp where the hair are thinning. This procedure takes about ninety minutes. It provides with a boost of some much needed growth factors to the scalp and helps the follicles in gaining strength.
Pre operative care for ACell/PRP Hair loss Therapy:
ACell therapy for hair loss / PRP therapy is a simple procedure that does not require any special pre-operative care. But still there are certain things that you have to take care off when preparing for the treatment, just to ensure that the procedure goes on smooth and you get the most out of the treatment.
- Stop taking blood thinners at least 5 to 7 days prior to the procedure.
- Quit smoking for a week before and after ACell therapy.
- Alcohol and drugs should be avoided during the last three days before the procedure.
- Have a healthy breakfast on the morning of treatment but avoid coffee and other caffeinated drinks.
- Wash your head with some antibacterial soap in the morning or the night before the treatment.
Post Procedure Care:
While some believe that one can go straight off to routine after the session has been completed, it is better that some rest is done before resuming normal routine. The swelling at the scalp is expected to remain for 48 hours.
The results that have been observed are extremely heartening. A marked improvement in the thickness of the hair can be seen within six months of the procedure. This is a good six months less than what hair transplant procedures require. Unlike other non-surgical options, there is no need for day to day maintenance and a visit to the doctor every few months is more than enough. With nothing more than normal hair maintenance needed, ACell hair loss therapy is a real winner.
In the long term, more sessions may be needed to maintain the thickness of the hair and to further enhance it.

ACell/ PRP Injections with Hair Transplant:
ACell/PRP injections are also used to speed up the recovery process and enhance the results of hair transplant surgery. ACell’s MatriStem is a completely resorbable extracellular matrix rich in proteins and collagens. This naturally occurring protein works by stimulating the healing process. When used in combination with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), it not only speeds up the recovery process but also ensures healthy growth of freshly transplanted hair follicles. PRP is obtained by centrifuging blood sample taken from patient’s body. It is then mixed with powdered ACell. The mixture is carefully injected in the entire, scalp, paying special attention to the recipient and donor sites. Hair Transplant surgeons are also using PRP-ACell technology to grow hair in linear scars resulting from traditional strip method transplant.
