ACell therapy is a medical device that uses MatriStem UBM™ technology. When placed in the body, ACell recruits healing properties to initiate and support the regeneration of cells and tissue.
ACell’s technology is often used to heal burns, surgical wounds, and trauma wounds. The hair restoration specialists at Meshkin Medical use ACell therapy to treat hair thinning and hair loss.
When injected into the scalp, ACell’s protein matrix activates growth factors and healing proteins over a period of several months, restoring and lengthening the hair growth cycle.
ACell therapy can help many types of hair loss, including genetic hair loss like patterned balding. The innovative therapy may also improve hair growth if you have hair loss from a medical treatment, excess stress, or nutritional deficiencies.
ACell therapy is a non-surgical treatment for hair loss and works best during the early stages of hair loss when hair follicles are more responsive to medical interventions.
The experts at Meshkin Medical conduct a thorough history and physical before making any hair restoration recommendations. They determine if ACell therapy is a good choice for you based on the severity of your hair loss and when it started.
Your provider at Meshkin Medical customizes your ACell therapy and reviews the details at your consultation so you know what to expect. They usually combine ACell therapy with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to provide a continuous supply of growth factors for your hair follicles over several months.
However, they can provide ACell therapy without PRP for patients who are uncomfortable using their blood or have a hard time with blood draws.
During ACell therapy, your provider may use a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during your therapy. Then, they inject the ACell into the parts of the scalp where hair is thinning.
ACell therapy injections take about 30 minutes and require no downtime.
ACell therapy stimulates the natural healing process, and it may take time until you see hair restoration results. However, you may notice improvements in the thickness and health of your hair within three months.
Meshkin Medical recommends repeating injections two or three times a year to maintain your results.
