When Neograft is not a viable option, PSS offers some alternatives.A non-surgical hair loss treatment uses your body’s regenerative power to stimulate hair growth is called Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) . These injections use serum collected from your blood and harvests those growth factors to boost hair growth.
The platelets in your bloodstream contain cells that are directly involved in the healing process. These cells have signaling agents that coordinate healing throughout the body. Autologous conditioned plasma has been shown to produce age-defying results in a number of cosmetic procedures, including hair loss treatment.
The non-surgical ACP procedure takes only 30 minutes. A typical appointment begins when a PSS medical professional draws a small amount of your blood to create the rejuvenating serum. Your blood is run through a centrifuge for 10 minutes to separate the plasma and its healing agents from the viscous medium.
A PSS medical professional may apply a topical anesthetic before the injections. Your attending physician will inject the ACP serum into the scalp, with special attention being paid to those areas where hair growth is most desired.
It will take about six weeks to start seeing results. The Plastic Surgery Specialists recommend continued treatments at monthly intervals to maintain ACP’s effects. ACP is most effective in the beginning stages of hair loss. Patients with advanced hair loss may not be ideal candidates.
