ACell + PRP Hair Regrowth Therapy – Portland, OR
ACell, PRP (platelet rich plasma),and Lasers are promising treatments to promote hair growth for hair loss patients. The treatments may benefit patients who have had surgery, do not wish to have surgery, or are not candidates for surgery.

When used in treating hair loss, ACell appears to clinically restore the necessary cells (progenitor cells) responsible for healthy hair growth.
