When experiencing hair loss or thinning hair, it becomes frustrating when looking at your hair restoration treatment options. Between hair transplanting, over the counter products, and other hair restoration methods available on the market, it can be hard to choose which one is right for you. The plastic surgeons at Seattle Plastic Surgery can help you. With knowledge and training in hair restoration procedures, they use cutting edge technology to stimulate hair growth using a combination of your own growth proteins and Acell. Seattle Plastic Surgery offers PRP and Acell hair restoration for patients in the Seattle and Tacoma areas.
At Seattle Plastic Surgery, we want to provide you with the best possible results from your Seattle PRP and Acell hair restoration. This is why we combine these two hair restoration methods to give your hair the optimal environment to come back. If the Acell provide the foundation for your new hair, then PRP is the fertilizer that stimulates hair growth.
When these two successful regenerative treatments are used concurrently, they create an ecosystem for your hair that is rich in growth hormones, white blood cells, and new skin cells. Your Seattle plastic surgeon will determine the best course of action for your hair restoration procedure. Most patients seeking hair restoration are good candidates for PRP and Acell hair restoration and the regenerative benefits it yields.
PRP and Acell hair restoration works by using your body’s healing response to repair and stimulate hair follicles. One of the main causes of hair loss is the shrinking of hair follicles and the loss of blood vessels in the scalp. Combining PRP and Acell helps repair these shrunken hair follicles and regrow new ones, as well as, triggering the formation of new blood vessels to nourish the roots of your new hair.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a regenerative treatment used in the cosmetic and physical therapy fields to help promote new cell growth. PRP comes from your blood and is rich in growth hormones and white blood cells. During your PRP and Acell hair restoration in Seattle, we will draw your blood and use a state-of-the-art centrifuge to isolate the PRP.
When used in regenerative treatments such as microneedling with PRP or hair restoration, PRP stimulates the repair of cells and the production of new ones. In PRP and Acell hair restoration, PRP helps reduce shrunken hair follicles and produce new ones so that your can see brand new hair growth in thinning and lost areas.
ACell is a type of stem cell produced from pig bladders. This tissue is chemically similar to human tissue and often compatible. Surgeons use Acell in a variety of ways including to help heal wounds and burns. In the case of your Seattle plastic surgeon, they will use these cells to promote the rejuvenation of your hair follicles and scalp, which will create a healthy environment for your new hair.
Acell stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the scalp. Blood vessels provide nourishment for the skin of your scalp and new hair growth. There is evidence to support that those with hair loss often have few blood vessels in their scalp, which may contribute to the original hair loss. The PRP and Acell help combat this by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels in the scalp.
PRP and Acell essentially rebuilds the foundation of your scalp. Moreover, making it stronger and in better condition for new hair growth. PRP cell hair restoration in Tacoma has grown in popularity due to its powerful healing and restorative properties.
With any hair restoration procedure, it will take time to see the final results. It’s possible to see results in 1-3 months, but on average patients see their Seattle PRP and Acell hair restoration results in around 4-8 months. Some patients choose to have another treatment six months later to prolong and improve their results. However, depending upon the state of your hair thinning and loss you may not require more than one treatment.
Your Seattle plastic surgeon will begin your PRP and Acell hair restoration by drawing your blood to begin processing the PRP. The PRP is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP from your blood. This takes about twenty minutes and during this time a topical anesthetic is applied to your scalp. By the time the PRP is ready, the anesthetic should take effect and your cosmetic surgeon will mix the PRP and Acell together.
Using a short needle, your plastic surgeon will begin injecting the PRP and stem cell mixture into your scalp. They will precisely inject in the areas you experience thinning and hair loss, tailoring your PRP and Acell hair restoration treatment to you during the procedure. This custom approach allows you to get the most out of your PRP and Acell hair restoration in Seattle.
Because of the topical anesthetic, you should not feel any pain during the procedure. You will remain fully alert and awake during the procedure. The entire treatment takes around 1-2 hours depending upon the size of the treatment areas and your needs.
PRP and Acell hair restoration in Tacoma is one among many hair restoration options. Hair grafting or hair transplant entails taking hair from one place on the scalp (or from another part of the body) and transplanting it into the scalp with the hopes that it will grow and fill in the thinning or balding area. Normally, these treatments don’t include any stimulation in generating new hair, simply transplanting the hair in thin strips.
Hair transplant works for some patients, but others continue to experience hair loss and the grafted hair does not take off. For these patients, PRP and Acell hair restoration may be a better option because it stimulates hair growth from inside the hair follicles themselves.
PRP and Acell hair restoration does not require hair grafting which means the hair generated from the procedure is entirely new hair. It also lowers the risk and invasiveness of the procedure.
Hair grafting comes with the risk of scarring and because PRP and Acell hair restoration does not require an incision of any kind. Therefore, there is very little risk for scarring. The needle pricks are small and most of the time do not produce any visible or long term scarring.
Anyone with hair loss may find benefits in Seattle PRP and Acell hair restoration.

Because this hair restoration method requires a blood draw to create the PRP, you need to be healthy enough and able to give blood.

Your PRP and Acell hair restoration in Tacoma will take 1-2 hours including the blood draw and numbing time. After that, there are generally no restrictions on activities afterward. While this will vary depending upon your general health and needs, your plastic surgeon will explain any downtime or restrictions required for you.
