This hair loss question was answered by Dr. Paul Shapiro who is a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians.
What makes Liposomal ATP spray so effective in cleaning the hair transplant recipient area and its ability to aid hair growth. I know some hair restoration clinics use the spray post-op.
After a hair transplant the cells cannot make as much ATP. Until new blood vessels attach to the bulb which takes about 3 days, the only way the cells can get oxygen and nutrients is by diffusion from the fluids surrounding the cell. The Liposomal ATP provides the cells with the ATP they need for healing.
After blood vessels have reattached to the hair follicle it then can produce more ATP then we could ever give them with the spray.
That is why we have our patients spray the Liposomal ATP every half hour for the first 48 hours and then continue spraying after that but not as aggressively. By the 3rd day blood vessels have attached to the cells and they can make their own ATP.
