PRP Hair Restoration

PRP injections have been shown to be effective in promoting hair growth. The growth factors in PRP help to stimulate the hair follicles, resulting in thicker, healthier hair.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) injections have gained popularity in recent years as a non-surgical treatment option for hair restoration. PRP therapy involves using a patient's own blood plasma, which is rich in growth factors and healing properties, to stimulate hair growth.

  1. Natural and Safe: PRP injections are made from a patient's own blood, which makes it a safe and natural treatment option. The use of the patient's own blood reduces the risk of allergic reactions and other side effects associated with other hair restoration treatments.

  2. Effective: PRP injections have been shown to be effective in promoting hair growth. The growth factors in PRP help to stimulate the hair follicles, resulting in thicker, healthier hair.

  3. Non-Surgical: PRP injections are a non-surgical treatment option, which means there are no incisions or stitches involved. This makes it a great option for those who do not want to undergo surgery or those who are not good candidates for surgical procedures.

  4. Quick and Easy: PRP injections are a quick and easy procedure that can be performed in a doctor's office. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, and there is no downtime afterward.

  5. Long-Lasting Results: PRP injections provide long-lasting results, with patients often reporting improvement in hair thickness and growth several months after treatment. In some cases, the results can last for up to two years.

  6. Cost-Effective: Compared to other hair restoration treatments, PRP injections are a cost-effective option. The procedure is less expensive than hair transplant surgery and other non-surgical treatments.

At the San Diego Center for Restorative Medicine, we combine ACELL Micromatrix, a proprietary purified collagen complex comprised of naturally-occurring urinary bladder matrix (UBM) with PRP made from your own blood.

ACELL Micromatrix

ACell’s wound management products are medical devices that maintain and support a healing environment by facilitating the remodeling of functional tissue.

We find this unique combination of cellular tissue has a better growth response.  Hair becomes thicker and darker and we don't have to inject as often as many other clinics who will have you come in for PRP injections 6x in a year for treatment.


ACell MatriStem MicroMatrix technology works at the cellular level by recruiting adult stem cells and increasing blood supply to the site of the wound to repair and remodel damaged tissue. During the healing process, ACell converts these adult stem cells back to their active form as progenitor cells. They facilitate direct healing by leaving new native tissue where scar tissue would normally form. Once activated, stem cells recruit other cell types to the area to begin tissue regeneration. ACell, when injected into the scalp, regenerates dormant hair follicular tissues and increases hair growth and quality.

Stem cell activation with this proprietary UBM scaffold technology has been used extensively in a broad range of medical applications, including general surgery, gastrointestinal surgery, urology and plastic and reconstructive surgery to enhance wound healing. The use of ACell in wound healing also dramatically decreases the formation and appearance of scar tissue.
