TECHNIQUE

To ensure optimal results and safety, please follow these preparations prior to your Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) therapy session:

Consultation: Schedule a consultation with our medical professionals to discuss your hair loss concerns and determine if ACP therapy is the right treatment for you. Inform us about any medications or supplements you are currently taking, as certain drugs may need to be temporarily discontinued before the procedure. Drink plenty of water on the day of the treatment to ensure adequate hydration, which aids in blood collection. Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo before the procedure, avoiding any styling products, oils, or conditioners.

PREPARATION

You will be given detailed pre-op instructions which would include abstaining from alcohol a few days prior to your procedure. The doctor/clinician will also review your medications and may discuss them with your primary care provider. Please be sure to list all medications, allergies, vitamins, health conditions, prior procedures/surgeries, and other intakes on your medical history form before your consultation. You will also be given instructions on how to cut your hair prior to your procedure.

ADVANTAGES

Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) therapy offers several advantages for hair restoration:

  • Natural and Safe: ACP therapy uses your own blood, eliminating the risk of adverse reactions or allergies.
  • Non-Surgical: Unlike invasive procedures, ACP therapy is a non-surgical approach, reducing downtime and discomfort.
  • Stimulates Hair Growth: The growth factors in ACP stimulate dormant hair follicles, promoting natural hair regrowth.
  • Complementary to Hair Transplants: ACP therapy can be combined with hair transplant procedures to enhance results and improve the overall success of the transplant.
  • Minimal Side Effects: ACP therapy has minimal side effects, with temporary scalp redness or mild soreness being the most common, which typically resolves quickly.

frequently asked questions

Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) therapy is a non-surgical hair loss treatment that utilizes the patient's own blood to stimulate hair growth and improve hair health. It involves collecting a small amount of blood, processing it to isolate platelets and growth factors, and then injecting it back into the scalp.

ACP therapy works by harnessing the growth factors present in the patient's blood. When injected into the scalp, these growth factors stimulate dormant hair follicles, promote blood circulation to the hair follicles, and encourage the growth of new, healthy hair.

ACP therapy can be effective for various types of hair loss, including androgenic alopecia (pattern baldness) and certain cases of alopecia areata. However, its suitability depends on individual factors, which can be assessed during a consultation with our medical professionals.

The number of ACP therapy sessions needed can vary depending on the individual and the extent of hair loss. Generally, a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results. Our medical professionals will provide a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

While ACP therapy can stimulate hair growth and improve hair health, it does not permanently alter the genetic factors that contribute to hair loss. Regular maintenance sessions may be necessary to sustain the results over time.

ACP therapy is generally well-tolerated by most individuals. The procedure is performed using very fine needles, and any discomfort experienced is typically minimal. Our medical professionals can apply a topical anesthetic if needed to ensure a comfortable experience.

ACP therapy is considered safe, and side effects are generally minimal. Some individuals may experience temporary scalp redness, mild soreness, or swelling at the injection sites. These effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days.

Yes, ACP therapy can be used in conjunction with other hair restoration procedures such as hair transplants. When combined, ACP therapy can enhance the success and results of the additional procedures.

ACP therapy is a non-surgical procedure that requires minimal downtime. Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after the session. However, it's advisable to avoid intense physical activities and excessive heat exposure for a short period as advised by our medical professionals.

The timeline for noticeable results can vary among individuals. Some patients may start observing improvements in hair thickness and quality within a few weeks, while others may require several months of treatment to see significant changes. Patience and consistency with the recommended treatment plan are key.

Yes, ACP therapy can be used to treat hair loss in both men and women. The treatment is customized based on the specific needs and patterns of hair loss for each individual.

Insurance coverage for ACP therapy may vary depending on the insurance provider and policy. It is recommended to check with your insurance company to determine if they provide coverage for hair restoration procedures. Our clinic can provide any necessary documentation for insurance reimbursement purposes if applicable.
