What is acell graft

ACell Supportive Injection Therapy works to preserve and thicken hair in patients who are genetically predisposed to hair loss. As a non-surgical solution, the ACell Supportive injection procedure is a short 90-minute visit with limited downtime.

Unlike prescription medications or topical applications that must be used as part of an ongoing daily routine, ACell Supportive Therapy does not require daily maintenance.

Non-Surgical Hair Restoration

Most hair loss is hereditary. The genetic signals cause hair follicle stem cells to gradually slow down, resulting in shorter, smoother hair on affected areas of the scalp.

Non-surgical hair restoration treatments can stop hair loss and improve hair growth by stimulating inactive hair follicle stem cells with specific, targeted proteins called growth factors.

Sources include Supportive, Extra-Cellular Matrix (ACell), and Adipose-Derived Stem Cells.

What is Supportive?

Supportive, or Supportive, is a concentration derived from your own blood – a rich source of specialized proteins called Growth Factors that stimulate stem cell activity in dormant hair follicles for up to 3-4 months.

What is ACell graft?

The ACell’s MatriStem technology (it’s a Food and Drug Administration approved medical tool) works at the cellular level to repair the damaged tissues. The ACell has a broad range of medical and surgical appeal, and is a naturally occurring protein complex found in the skin and also other tissues.

When it’s injected into the scalp, the ACell activates dormant follicular stem cells between 18-24 months. Please Note: ACell is not Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment for hair loss.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are found in all tissues of the body and are responsible for tissue preservation and maintenance. It is considered to be of utmost importance due to its role and site-specific consideration (unlike embryonic stem cells, which have the ability to form any type of tissue).

When the tissue is damaged, adult stem cells are activated and other types of GF cells are recruited into the area and tissue regeneration begins.
This process takes about 90 minutes and the healing is faster with a painful scalp that lasts about 48 hours.

In the case of hereditary hair loss, there is no tissue damage, only the follicular stem cells are gradually disrupted. The process causes a steady decrease in the quantity and quality of hair as well.

Why does ACELL Supportive?

Early treatment is always better. Men and women over the age of 18 who are at the beginning of the development of their hair loss benefit the most from supportive ACell treatment.

Regular treatments with ACell Supportive keep more hair on your head by protecting the targeted hair follicles from initiating the miniaturization process and rejuvenating those that have already begun to recede.

Early intervention with ACELL Supportive

ACell + booster injections help combat the physical properties of hair loss. This helps increase the chance to slow down or even stop the hair loss before the procedure needs to be repeated.

The main goal of treating hereditary hair loss early is to preserve hair for as long as possible, improve its thickness, and maintain results in the long term.

ACELL Supportive Actions

The ACell + Support procedure begins with taking a blood sample from the patient. After local anesthesia, it is applied to the scalp until it is completely numb.
This process takes about 90 minutes and the healing is faster with a painful scalp that lasts about 48 hours.

Who Would Benefit from ACell Supportive?

ACell Supportive Therapy protects hair from additional hair loss, rejuvenates micro-hairs to improve growth, and restores hair quality and quantity for patients with thinning hair.

  • ACell Supportive Results
  • In most cases, results of new hair growth appear within 4-6 months after the ACell + booster injection procedure. Hair continues to thicken over a period of 12-15 months.
  • And the treated area has an important role in the thickness and density of the hair that will grow, which leads to the appearance of the hairline more clearly for patients.

A series of ACell  Supportive procedures recommend optimizing hair growth, depending on your expectations for results, the nature of your hair loss progression, and your overall response to the treatment.
