    Default PRP + Acell Treatment is now available in the UK

    ACell – PRP Introduced to London, UK
    Posted on April 27, 2011 by admin
    Leading U.S. hair restoration researcher and surgeon to bring revolutionary injectable treatment that helps regenerate hair to London cosmetic practice.

    NEW YORK, NY – - Hair loss may be a thing of the past for a certain heir to the throne and commoners alike thanks to a vaccination that can help prevent and in some cases reverse hair loss. Gary Hitzig, M.D., a leading hair restoration specialist and pioneer of the ACell / platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, has been invited to instruct a group of doctors and medical professionals at The Private Clinic in May on this breakthrough in hair restoration therapy.

    Dr. Hitzig’s peers, as well as the medical community at large, are following his hair restoration therapy and consistent results in both men and women experiencing genetic and other forms of hair loss. ACell has been available only in the U.S. and has five FDA allowances, but the British Medical Board recently approved the use and availability of ACell in the UK and Europe through Dr. Hitzig. The Private Clinic, the largest UK cosmetic practice, will be the first medical practice outside the U.S. to be trained in the use of ACell-PRP injections.

    MatriStem MicroMatrix, a product of regenerative medicine innovator, ACell, Inc., is a wound healing powder that promotes healing and tissue growth. Dr. Hitzig has spent years researching and proving that when MatriStem MicroMatrix is combined with PRP, it can help both prevent and regenerate hair in men and women experiencing genetic hair loss.

    Hitzig discovered that if you dissolve the MatriStem powder in a specialized blood serum rich in the patient’s adult stem cells and inject it into the scalp, the combination acts like a hair growth accelerator. Many hair transplant patients experienced significant hair re-growth sooner and the wound where donor hair had been taken and transplanted was completely healed with little or no signs of a scarring.

    “This revolutionary injectable combination of ACell and PRP may be the answer to restoring hair growth for those in the early to moderate stages of hair loss,” said Dr. Hitzig. “Similar to how a flu shot can prevent one from catching the flu, ACell and PRP can help prevent further hair loss and help restore one’s hair. I appreciate the interest and support from the British Medical Board, who in conjunction with my supervision, are making this treatment available to people in the UK through The Private Clinic.”

    Said Hitzig with a smile, “And in case Prince William is interested in regaining more hair in his crown when he returns from his honeymoon, I’ll be sure to bring some extra ACell with me.”

    It's available from this Friday and will cost £1000. I'm thinking of getting it done, I'm not expecting major re-growth but if it's gonna help to maintain the hair I have alongside Propecia and Minox then I think it's worth doing until something better comes along. Any thoughts? Anyone else from the UK gonna get it done?

    Are the injections only done once, or is there a need for follow up injections to maintain any gains like PRP alone is done?

    Unhappy Is PRP bad?

    OK, I'm really freaked out after reading on another forum that PRP is actually full of Testosterone and DHT and TGF-B1 - all of which are known to cause hair loss. I was gonna get PRP + Acell done, I knew it wasn't proven and that there's been no clinical trials but I was assured it wouldn't make me worse off and the results that are shown seemed to show no further hair loss.

    I really don't know what to think, I'm sure the doctors using PRP will have reasons as to why it's supposedly fine but I really don't know who to believe anymore. I saw an independant article about PRP and it's definately full of TGF-B1 and if you google that in regards to hair loss they call it the hair follicle assasin and show studies that were done to try and inhibit it to help stop hair loss. I can't believe hair restoration doctors would've bushed over this but who knows if they're just in it for the money.

    I wanted to believe in the promise of this but now I really don't think I can risk it. When I think about it more there's a lot of excitement about Acell but to be honest there's not much interest in PRP from the big doctors, they say it's because it's not proven but maybe it's also because they're aware of these factors.

    Why can't someone just do an F**KING clinical trial and prove things for sure, Greco's been using PRP for over 3 years, if he hada started a proper trial back then we would have contrete answers by now!

    I guess I'm just gonna have to keep using Propecia and Minox, hold they hold out until Histogen or something comes out, at least we can trust in these products that are taking so long to come to market because they're being properly trialled for actual hair loss.

    Any feed back would be appreciated, I'm a bit ****ed up about this because as I said I just don't know what to believe, it could just be forum scare mongering but then there does also seem to be truth behind it.

    Has ACELL/PRP been FDA approved yet for use on the scalp?

    Default Not as yet for the scalp

    As far as I know PRP has been deemed safe to use because it's from your own body so they feel it doesn't need FDA clearence to be used. Acell has been FDA approved but I don't think specifically for the scalp.

    See that's the worry, I mean Greco and Hitzig have been using PRP for 2/3 years and so far they reckon that it's only made a positive difference and there are people of the forums saying they've had PRP done and it works for them. On the other hand PRP definately contains the growth factor TGF-B1 - I checked it out and that def is involved in hair loss so how can it be good? I guess it's just best to wait right? I don't wanna miss out on a good thing but it just doesn't seem to add up and that scares me.

    Dude even i was goin to get prp/acell done to ma scalp but after i read it contains buckets full of Testosterone and DHT i was shocked and i don't want to experiment such a thing on my hair loss as it can make it worsen my hair. I am now NW1 and i am losing my hair very fast. i am just trying to save what i have and for that i can even spent $$$$'s money doesnt matters, hair comes first for me.

    UK Boy, I haven't seen many people praising PRP treatment on this site. I myself have flown to Florida and had a go with Greco's PRP Protein Matrix mix and can say that it did absolutely nothing. No regrowth, no apparent thickening, my hair actually appeared to accelerate in what I was losing, but I'm NOT saying that it was due to the PRP. It could have been that I was a point in my hair loss where it was starting to become noticable more and more with the same amount of hair loss. I'm curious if Hitzig is performing this in the states? I'd hate to hop the pond only to find out that he's already doing this here.

    Hitzig is gonna be in London at the Private Clinic this Friday and Saturday to teach Dr. Reddy the procedure. After this weekend the Private Clinic will be offering appointments for the treatment every 8 weeks or so, not all the time. So it'll be Hitzig's procedure but not him doing it.
