Thinning hair can affect both men and women at any age. While it is not a physically debilitating condition, hair loss can still be an embarrassing and discouraging occurrence for anyone who experiences it. Fortunately, thinning hair is not always irreversible. Hair restoration treatments are becoming increasingly effective as our knowledge of the body and medical science both expand.
Painful and unnatural-looking surgical procedures are no longer the only options for patients seeking treatment for thinning hair, balding patches and receding hairlines. Today, hair loss can often be addressed effectively with minimally-invasive procedures, especially if it is detected early and treated promptly. ACell + PRP injection therapy is at the forefront of these promising developments in hair restoration.
ACell is an FDA-approved cellular regeneration product initially developed to help wound healing. Using proprietary technology, ACell facilitates the body's ability to repair and remodel itself at a cellular level. It is naturally derived, fully resorbable and designed to cause no immune system reaction or rejection.
As a hair loss treatment, ACell is injected into your scalp, where it increases blood supply and restores dormant follicular tissues. This process harnesses the power of your body’s own tissue regeneration mechanism to stimulate your hair follicles and reactivate the hair growth cycle. The treated follicles become larger and healthier, producing more robust hair growth.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a concentration derived from your own blood. It contains hundreds of bioactive proteins, including cytokines, peptides and growth factors that stimulate the healing of skin and soft tissues. PRP therapy is used in various fields of medicine, including wound healing and musculoskeletal regeneration. In aesthetics, it is often combined with microneedling for skin rejuvenation.
Mounting evidence shows that PRP therapy can be effective in reducing hair loss and increasing the thickness of existing hair. When injected into the scalp, PRP triggers inactive hair follicles to enter the active growth phase, while the growth factors and proteins promote tissue repair.
ACell and PRP can be used individually, but they create an even more potent blend of regeneration and growth factors when combined. The combined treatment is more effective and provides significantly longer-lasting hair restoration results. Benefits can last a year or more, compared to the 90-day results duration achieved with PRP alone. A once-a-year ACell + PRP treatment regimen is sufficient for most patients.
ACell + PRP is the next frontier of hair restoration. As one of Dubai’s leading aesthetic and dermatology clinics, we offer this treatment to:
During your consultation, your Lucia Clinic specialist will assess the status of your hair loss and listen to your goals for treatment. They will then use this information to create a treatment plan customized to meet your hair restoration needs.
Hair transplants (both FUE and FUT techniques) require extensive surgery with downtime, risk of scarring and a steep cost. Hair transplantation can be an all-day commitment, lasting from five to eight hours. Surgical hair restoration techniques can increase fullness, but they cannot prevent future hair thinning and hair loss.
Hair transplant surgery can offer remarkable results for the right candidate, but many patients seek less invasive options. ACell + PRP is a non-surgical injectable procedure with no downtime and minimal post-treatment restrictions. It maximizes coverage with existing hair while also managing hair loss progression.
ACell + PRP therapy may be used synergistically with hair transplant surgery to strengthen non-transplanted natural hair, increase the survival rate of transplanted hair grafts and slow hair loss progression.
Lucia’s ACell + PRP hair restoration procedure is suitable for men or women noticing a reduction in hair volume. Individuals in the early stages of genetic hair loss benefit the most from this treatment. The sooner we begin treatments, the more hair we can strengthen and save. Those with more advanced hair loss considering surgical hair restoration can benefit from combining the surgery with ACell + PRP therapy.
Hair thinning can result from hormonal imbalance, stress, poor diet, a medical condition and numerous other factors. Consult a doctor to determine the underlying cause of your hair loss before deciding on a treatment option. ACell + PRP is applicable for male and female hereditary hair loss (also called male- and female-pattern hair loss), alopecia areata and hypotrichosis (fine hairs or reduced hair growth) of the eyebrows or beard.
Lucia’s ACell + PRP treatment is a 90-minute procedure that starts with drawing blood to create the platelet-rich plasma concentration. The blood will be put in a centrifuge and processed to separate the PRP. The PRP will then be mixed with the powdered ACell product to create an injectable serum.
Your head will be locally anesthetized to ensure you remain comfortable during the remainder of the procedure. Once your scalp is numbed, the prepared ACell + PRP mixture will be precisely placed into different areas of your scalp through a meticulous injection process. Your hair will then be cleaned and you will be free to return to your daily routine.
Recovery from ACell + PRP therapy is typically straightforward. In most cases, post-treatment discomfort is minimal and there are no visible signs of the injections. You may experience mild swelling, redness and soreness, but most people can resume their regular activities with few disruptions. Please wait 24 hours to wash your hair. After that, you can wash and style your hair as you normally do.
Following ACell + PRP therapy, you may observe new hair growth as early as one to three months post-treatment. Most patients start to notice results after four to six months. You may continue to see improvements in hair thickening and shedding reduction over a period of 12 to 15 months. The Lucia Clinic team will monitor your progress and offer suggestions to maintain or improve your results as they develop.
Most patients achieve improvement with a single treatment. However, your doctor may recommend a series of ACell + PRP procedures to optimize hair growth. Your hair restoration treatment plan will be customized according to the status of your hair loss progression, your goals and your response to the treatment.
For the best long-term results with Dubai ACell + PRP injections, consistency is key. Maintenance treatments every 12 to 24 months ensure you can enjoy your improvements for months and even years to come.
Regenerative medicine offers a revolutionary way to stimulate hair growth, strengthen weakened hair and halt hair thinning using the power of your own body.
