Hair Regeneration Treatment with PRP + ACell® for Minnesota, Minneapolis, St. Paul, & Surrounding Areas

Hair Regeneration, a non-surgical alternative to hair transplantation, is offered at Hogue Cosmetic Surgery/Minnesota Regenerative Medicine for women and men suffering from hair loss, hair thinning, and hair miniaturization. Dr. Hogue, a cosmetic regenerative medicine specialist and cosmetic surgeon, uses a combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and extracellular matrix (ACell®) to regenerate the scalp skin and tissue, to reactivate existing hair follicles, and to revitalize the normal hair growth cycle. PRP with ACell® serves to potentially reverse, and slow the progression of hair loss, hair thinning, hair miniaturization, and balding. The level or degree of response to a single PRP with ACell® treatment cannot be predicted or known in advance of treatment. Results can vary from person to person, depending on the hair loss causation and the individual’s intrinsic natural healing capacity. Visible results may be seen within 2 to 6 months after a hair regeneration treatment using PRP with ACell®.

The process of collecting PRP first involves obtaining whole blood from a patient. The option of either 180ccs, or a double volume of 360ccs of whole blood is drawn from the patient’s arm vein. This amount of whole blood is 3 to 12 times more than what most other providers of PRP Hair Regeneration use with routine blood draws of only 30 to 60 ccs whole blood. The whole blood is placed into our Angel® Whole Blood Separation System, spun down to isolate platelet-rich plasma (PRP). From the original 180ccs to 360ccs of blood, approximately 20ccs to 40ccs of PRP is obtained for use during the hair regeneration treatment. The recommended amount of whole blood depends on the amount or extent of scalp area that needs to be treated. PRP contains high numbers of cells called platelets that promote the body’s natural healing process by releasing powerful growth factors, cytokines, proteins, and peptides to collectively stimulate skin and tissue regeneration. ACell® is a porcine-derived FDA-cleared wound healing material known as extracellular matrix (ECM) that comes as a sterile powder. ECM attracts adult stem cells and promotes an increased blood supply to the area. When used in treating hair loss, hair thinning, hair miniaturization, and balding, ECM appears to restore the necessary cellular conditions responsible for healthy hair growth. Dr. Hogue administers an infiltrative local anesthetic to completely numb the scalp treatment area for a painless experience during the hair regeneration treatment. The patient’s autologous or self-derived PRP is mixed together with ACell® into a solution that is then directly injected into the scalp to promote cellular regeneration and hair growth.

The advantages of Dr. Hogue’s Hair Regeneration Treatment using PRP with ACell®:

  • Safety: Since PRP is harvested from your own blood, there is minimal to no risk of an adverse reaction; ACell® is a sterile, non-cellular FDA-cleared biologic agent (used Off-Label for Hair Regeneration). The PRP with ACell® treatment is a way to give your body a chance to naturally reverse the hair loss and hair thinning process.
  • Non-Surgical: A hair regeneration treatment using PRP with ACell® involves micro injections, local anesthesia, and a blood draw without any incisions or scars. The treatment takes 90-120 minutes to perform, and is done in a private, office-based setting. No special wound care is needed.
  • No Down Time: Following a hair regeneration treatment, your scalp will be rinsed in our procedure room and you will go home looking essentially the same as you did prior to the procedure. There will be no bleeding or down time due to the rapid healing effects of PRP with ACell®. Mild tissue swelling from the local anesthetic scalp ring block along with the potential for bruising may occur.

A good candidate for a hair regeneration treatment using PRP with ACell® includes the following:

  • Someone that is not interested in surgical hair transplantation. Someone that prefers a less invasive, more natural treatment method to prevent ongoing and future hair loss, as well as hair growth and thickening of miniaturized and thinning hairs.
  • Someone with genetic pattern hair loss (female or male pattern baldness) in the early stages of hair loss or balding, or anytime there is an abundance of miniaturized or thinning hairs on the scalp.

Pricing for a hair regeneration treatment using PRP obtained from 180ccs whole blood with ACell® (contains 60mg ACell® MatriStem MicroMatrix Micronized Particles) is $2400.

Pricing for a hair regeneration treatment using PRP obtained from 360ccs whole blood with ACell® (contains 120mg ACell® MatriStem MicroMatrix Micronized Particles) is $3600.

A single treatment is all that is needed for the majority of patients with hair loss or thinning. For select patients, an additional PRP with ACell® treatment may be recommended.
