Photograph is of our patient, before and 4 months after PRP + ACell treatment. Patient had five PRP hair regeneration treatments elsewhere prior to her visit at our practice. Individual resulst vary
About 10 months ago we started the PRP + ACell injection treatment for androgenic alopecia or male and female pattern hair loss in our Dallas and Southlake offices. I had researched extensively on the science, side effects, realistic results and mechanism of action of PRP hair loss treatments and attended key conferences on the latest advances on PRP for cosmetic skin and hair loss treatments all over US but I am never 100% sure of the results until I see the outcome of any treatment in my own patients.
The patient photographed above is especially interesting to me because this particular patient had FIVE PRP (alone) scalp treatments, at 2 month intervals before her first treatment at our office. Her last PRP scalp treatment prior to her visit at our office was 2 months before her first visit at our office. According to the patient she noticed no improvement in her hair density or quality after five PRP injection treatments of the scalp over the span of 12 months. She also reported that the degree of her hair loss had not changed after the PRP hair loss treatments either. As you may know that regenerative treatments like PRP for hair regeneration do not work equally on everyone. There is a small percentage of people who do not respond to the PRP hair regeneration. This was my concern with the above patient and I discussed this at length before her treatment. In fact, it is safe to say that I discouraged the patient from getting her PRP + ACell treatment done at our Southlake office on the day of her consultation for treatment of female pattern hair loss. I did not want to do the treatment because I do not like disappointments at all and I was not sure how much difference the addition of ACell will make to the hair regenerating effect of PRP.
