ACELL & Platelet Rich Plasma
“At Ziering Medical, we consider ourselves to be at the forefront of techniques, technology and service. Consequently, we are always looking for and evaluating the latest technologies to provide our patients with enhanced results and quicker healing.”
Dr. Craig Ziering, Founder Ziering Medical Worldwide
To provide the best possible outcomes for our patients, Ziering Medical combines unparalleled skill and artistry with the most advanced biotechnology available in the field today.
One example of this is the use of ACell micromatrix in conjunction with the standard methods for hair transplant to help reduce scarring, improve graft growth, and stimulate regeneration of donor follicles.
Acell is a multi-layer organic tissue matrix rich in significant vital proteins as well as multiple growth factors that are essential for hair survival and enhancement. Acell sets up a temporary scaffold at the site of transplantation and recruits Adult Stem Cells to converge at the site. These Stem Cells are then converted into Progenitor cells which are necessary for reconstructing skin and hair.
For traditional strip procedures, a sheet of ACell can be incorporated at the donor site after the graft has been removed to aid in wound healing and to prevent formation of scars. During Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) transplants, a revitalized ACell powder bathes the grafts prior to implantation and is applied in both the donor and recipient areas where it facilitates either the robust growth of hair grafts or the regrowth the follicles in the donor area.
Another such therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), offers similar benefits for wound healing, growth factor, and stem cell stimulation. It can be obtained from the patient’s own blood and offers another option to optimize growth and achieve that full, natural looking head of hair.
PLATELET RICH PLASMA
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is used in hair restoration as a stand-alone hair loss treatment and in conjunction with other non-surgical and surgical treatment plans. PRP is created from your own blood, which is comprised of red and white blood cells along with platelets, and is used to stimulate hair regrowth with dormant or newly transplanted hair. PRP is concentrated blood plasma which contains three to five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood and transforming growth factors. The PRP is spun at high speed, resulting in higher concentrations of your platelets and growth factors. Using a thin needle, your own Platelet Rich Plasma is injected into the balding and thinning areas on your scalp. PRP contains platelet derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF) and other bioactive proteins that aid in wound healing and as a safe and effective hair loss treatment for men and women battling hair loss.
