PRP-ACell hair restoration patient testimonials
Actual hair restoration patient testimonials after being treated with Platelet Rich Plasma and ACell. Prior to treatment, patient was using Propecia and Rogaine but with minimal results.
Below is the protocol as described by Dr. Cole's clinic:
"In the first session we used the Angel system, to produce a 5x platelet increase with a low WBC count in 2012. We also used 15 mg of Acell. The patient noted his best improvement 8 months after this treatment. The patient returned 12 months later for a second PRP treatment at the same settings on the Angel system along with 60 mg of Acell".

Recent advances in the world of Regenerative Medicine have been very exciting. Fingertips are being regenerated, organs and heart valves have been cloned and are successfully being implanted in patients. Now one of the leading innovators in the field of regenerative medicine, ACell, Inc., has asked the Plastic Surgeons at Dr. Gary Hitzig’s offices in Rockville Centre, NY to test the use of their MatriStem product for healing the wounds associated with hair transplant sites. Dr. Hitzig and his colleagues will examine MatriStem’s ability to reduce scar tissue and regenerate hair within the donor region of hair transplant patients. MatriStem will also be tested for cloning transplanted hair from the donor area and the beard and growing it in bald areas on the top of the scalp.
ACell’s patented Extracellular Matrix (ECM) products are covered by multiple 510(k) clearances and address important unmet clinical needs, providing safe, effective and therapeutic outcomes. Derived from porcine urinary bladders and referred to as UBM (urinary bladder matrix), trademarked as MatriStem™, ACell’s core technology is a naturally occurring, non-crosslinked, completely resorbable acellular biomaterial. A similar “first generation” ECM technology has been used to treat over 500,000 patients with remarkable effect. ACell’s MatriStem products are the next generation of ECM technology due to its unique characteristics featuring a basement membrane surface which is ideal for epithelial cell growth in many applications.
“We are growing new hair in prior donor scar sites as well as duplicating (growing multiple hairs from a single transplanted beard or donor hair) in the bald recipient area” states Dr. Ted Chaglassian, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and former Chief of Plastic Surgery at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital and Attending Physician at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in NYC. He further states: “Where we go from here is anyone’s guess but the future of cloning growing hair has just been made a reality in the present!”. - reprinted with permission from Dr. Hitzig
