For those who have struggled with hair loss for quite some time — and have tried more products than they can count — it can be easy to want to give up and throw in the towel.
For those who feel like they’ve run out of options, the good news is there is a way to restore your body’s hair production using a combination of your body’s own growth factors and A-Cell technology.
In this introductory post on hair restoration, we’re going to cover PRP and A-Cells: what they are, how they work, their benefits, and their explosive power when used in conjunction to treat hair loss.
What Causes Hair Loss?
While there may be a variety of reasons (such as genetics, stress, hormonal changes, reactions to medication etc.) that men start to lose their hair, the ultimate cause of hair loss has to do with a steroid hormone called DHT or dihydrotestosterone.
What happens is DHT binds to receptors in your hair follicles, causing them to weaken and eventually die. Once started, the eventual end of this process is a complete end of hair growth in DHT-affected follicles.
Thus, one of the most effective ways to stall hair loss is to block DHT. At FemCare Health & Beauty, we use a combination of A-Cell technology and PRP therapy to jumpstart hair growth.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
What is PRP?
PRP is your body’s platelet-rich plasma. PRP is extracted by withdrawing blood and separating its components using a centrifuge. The PRP part of your blood rises to the top, and from there it’s injected into your scalp.
What are the Benefits of PRP?
The power of PRP in hair loss is the presence of growth factors. These growth factors stimulate your hair follicle’s microenvironment, causing the cells to accelerate their tissue healing and regeneration processes.
What is A-Cell?
A cell is a non-crosslinked, absorbable tissue that contains regenerative properties and naturally occurring collagens. While this protein is developed from the sterile tissues of pig bladders, it has been stripped of all cells and muscle tissues that would cause allergic reactions.
What are the Benefits of A-Cell?
A-Cells recruit adult stem cells, sending a larger supply of blood to the site of the wound. This action repairs damaged tissue at an accelerated rate. When A-Cell is injected into your scalp, dormant hair follicles are regenerated, increasing growth rate and quality of hair.
How PRP And A-Cell Work Together To Fight Hair Loss
When PRP and A-Cell is used in combination, the results are greatly amplified. Not only do results typically last longer, they also require a less extensive treatment regimen.
While other wellness clinics may offer solo PRP therapy for hair loss at a cheaper rate, over time PRP treatments usually end up being more costly as they have to be applied more frequently.
