Hair Duplication with ACell: Regenerating the Hair Transplant Donor Supply?

Wed 5 Jun 2013

This question, from a member of our hair loss social community and discussion forums, was answered by Coalition hair transplant surgeon Dr. Carlos Wesley:

Dr Wesley, has there been any sign of donor regeneration from the application of ACell to the donor?

Dr_Wesley_photoWe’re certainly looking at it closely and have effectively adopted the use of both ACell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) into our patients’ follicular unit extraction (FUE) donor healing.

Although we haven’t initiated any formal investigation, there is anecdotal evidence that it can help regenerate hair follicles (hair duplication) from transacted hair fragments in the hair transplant donor area.
