What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a substance that’s thought to promote healing when injected. Plasma is a component of your blood that contains special “factors,” or proteins, that help your blood to clot. It also contains proteins that support cell growth. Plasma is obtained through a centrifuge after obtaining a small sample of blood in the doctor’s office. The idea is that injecting PRP into damaged tissues will stimulate your body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing.
What is PRP for Hair Restoration?
PRP extracted from your own blood is loaded with growth factors and essential proteins. This nonsurgical treatment takes your own platelets and applies them to the areas of your scalp with thinning hair to stimulate the follicles and regrow your hair. Our doctor will apply a numbing cream to your scalp’s thinning areas before injecting the PRP. Some providers also like to do microneedling in the thinning area and spread the PRP topically over the tiny punctures. You might have some discomfort or minor swelling for a few days, but you should be fine going back to work the next day. Just avoid styling products or washing your hair for the first few days.
What is PRP Microneedling Blood Facial?
Our doctor will prep the skin with a topical numbing agent before beginning the microneedling. The plasma obtained from the blood sample with spread evenly over the open pores of the skin of the face. The nutrients from the plasma will help reduce rosacea, improve skin texture and tone, smooths wrinkles and fine lines, and stimulates collagen and elastin production for thinning skin. The healing process can take up to two weeks for the swelling and redness to subside.
There are little to no side effects since we use your own platelets from your blood sample. There could be some irritation, pain or bleeding around the injection site.
Pain relief in the injection sites typically starts to reduce within three to four weeks after your treatment. You should start to notice a difference in an appearance or improvement of symptoms within a period of three to six months following a single PRP injection.
Results are not guaranteed. However, one single PRP treatment may not be sufficient to when trying to achieve certain treatment results. It is recommended to complete a series of 3 PRP treatments every four to six weeks for optimal treatment results.

ACell with Hair Restoration PRP
How does ACell work?
Stem cells allow the body to renew and repair its tissues. Unlike mature cells, which are permanently committed to their fate, stem cells can both renew themselves and create new types of cells. However, adult stem cells cannot develop new tissue, unless they are activated by an acellular device, such as ACell Matristem MicroMatrix.
Benefits of using ACell with PRP for Hair Growth:
The goal of injecting ACell mixed with the patient’s adult stem cells into thinning areas of the scalp is to send signals to the adult stem cells lurking in the dormant hair follicles and wake them up. By using the body’s own tissue regeneration mechanism, miniaturized hair follicles become healthier and thicker, producing more robust hair growth. ACell + PRP treatment is effective for both male and female pattern hair loss. ACell + PRP therapy has also regrown hair in cases of alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis and non-hereditary hair loss. The combination of ACell + PRP hair regrowth therapy provides a significantly longer-lasting solution for hair loss.
How many treatments with ACell should you do?
NuVo applies the ACell for the first Hair Restoration PRP treatment. Our patients see significant results with just one application. However, we recommend doing your first treatment with ACell, then another two treatments every 4-6 weeks for optimal results.
1 Treatment of Acell/PRP Combo: $800.00
