Stop Loss, Restore, Grow
ACell + PRP Injection Therapy is a cutting edge non-surgical procedure that has been shown to stop hair loss, restore hair, and grow hair that is in many cases thicker. Dr. Armani was the first Dallas hair restoration specialist to use PRP Injection Therapy for hair restoration to treat hair loss, male pattern baldness, and androgenic alopecia.
The cost of ACell + PRP Injection Therapy is economical, as it is less invasive and thus not surgical, and usually only one or a few treatments are needed to get results that can last from months to a few years.
In the comfort and convenience of Dr. Armani’s Dallas, Texas office, an ACell + PRP Injection Therapy treatment typically takes no more than 90 minutes, with little or no down-time, and natural results first become noticeable four to eight months later.
A thorough consultation with Dr. Armani is first necessary before this or any other procedure is performed. Contact his offices and book an appointment by calling (972) 2- ARMANI.
What is ACell + PRP Injection Therapy?
ACell is the name of the company that perfected its FDA-approved medical device named MatriStem technology. This technology, usually referred to simply as ACell, works at the cellular level to repair damaged tissue and is used in a wide variety of surgical procedures to support the body’s natural healing processes. ACell does this by stimulating adult stem cells that in turn regenerate dormant hair follicles. Adult stem cells cannot regenerate follicles or any other tissue without first being activated by ACell.
PRP is an acronym for Platelet Rich Plasma. This plasma, which will be derived from your own blood contains lots of growth factors that when injected into the scalp stimulate hair follicles.
When ACell and PRP are combined and injected into the scalp the results are the growth of thicker and stronger hair.
The ACell + PRP Injection Therapy Procedure
First come to Armani Medical for a thorough consultation with Dr. Armani, where you will discuss your hair loss concerns and restoration goals in as much detail as you feel is necessary. If you decide that ACell + PRP Injection Therapy will produce the goals you desire, an appointment for the injections will be made.
At the appointment the procedure starts with a sample of your blood, which is then centrifuged to harvest PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). Dr. Armani will then apply a local anesthetic to your scalp to ensure your comfort during the procedure. ACell is added to the PRP and then injected into your scalp using very fine syringe needles.
After no more than 90 minutes, you will be out of Dr. Armani’s office and free to resume most activities including washing your hair, but you should definitely avoid strenuous exercise for (##@@PLEASE GET THIS INFO FROM DR. ARMANI@@##).
ACell + PRP Injection Therapy Results and What to Expect
After the procedure your scalp will remain sore for no longer than 48 hours. Only with Dr. Armani’s advice, you should be able to use an over the counter non-narcotic analgesic medication such as Ibuprofen, and you can apply ice packs to keep the swelling down.
In as early as four months you may be able to begin to see a noticeable difference in the amount and thickness of the hair in the treated area. Effects will definitely be noticeable after eight months and even more so after 12 months.
Dr. Armani will want to ensure that you are satisfied with your results and will want to monitor your progress with some follow up visits usually every four months after the initial injections. He may feel that a “touch up” procedure is necessary to achieve the desired effect.
To maintain the optimal effects of this procedure, booster injections will be necessary once every so often.
