Hair Rescue™ Treatment Offers More Affordable and Non-Surgical Option for Restoring Hair

Hair loss can be a thing of the past thanks to an injection that can help further prevent and even reverse hair loss. Prasad Cosmetic Surgery is now offering  ACell / platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, called Hair Rescue™. He has spent years researching and proving that only when the wound healing powder ACell MatriStem MicroMatrix is combined with PRP, in the proprietary formulation that he has developed over the course of his thorough research and clinical studies, it can help to both prevent and regenerate hair in men and women experiencing genetic hair loss – all without surgery.

It was discovered that if the MatriStem powder is dissolved in a specialized blood serum rich in the patient’s adult stem cells and injected into the scalp, his proprietary combination acts like a hair growth accelerator. The Hair Rescue™ injection treatment is now available at Prasad Cosmetic Surgery and Medi-Spa through its newly opened Hair Rescue and Restoration™ center.

“Hair Rescue injections finally give men and women a non-surgical option for both preserving and restoring hair by reactivating genetically faulty scalp stem cells,” said Dr. Prasad. “For those in the early to moderate stages of hair loss, this revolutionary, proprietary injectable combination of ACell and PRP can help prevent further hair loss and help restore a patient’s hair.”

Dr. Amiya Prasad has been seeing patients from all around the world ever since work with ACell and PRP gained world-wide attention in the field of hair restoration. Many patients see improvement in hair volume in as early as three weeks to six months following Hair Rescue™ injections in their scalp and in two years, not one patient has needed repeat injections, making this a much more affordable option for improving hair loss.

Stress May Lead to Hair Loss in Women

Turns out that stress and bad habits such as smoking, drinking and even tanning could contribute to hair loss, especially in women, according to preliminary findings from new research.

Reported on health website WebMD on September 23, two new studies found that women’s hair follicles are particularly vulnerable to the wear and tear of a stressful lifestyle. One study found that women who had suffered the stress of a divorce or death of a spouse were at the highest risk of losing their hair at the midline, meaning a widening of the parting in the middle of the scalp, noted WebMD.

Men can chalk balding mostly up to genetic luck of the draw, although smoking, alcohol consumption, daily stress, and sun exposure contribute as well, according to the research.

While you can take preventative measures such as wearing a hat in the sun, quitting smoking, and reducing your alcohol consumption, researchers add that adopting healthier lifestyle choices could possibly help your hair grow back.

“Part of it is to manage what you can,” said New York City dermatologist Doris Day (who wasn’t involved in the study) in an interview with WebMD. “The sooner you address it, the better your chances of having recovery.”

The studies were presented at the 2011 annual meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgery in Denver, Colorado, September 23-27.

Prior research has also linked stem cells to balding, finding that some stem cells in the scalp are incapable of developing into the type of cells that make follicles. The discovery, published earlier this year in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, could give hope to men and women with hair loss, said the researchers in a release.
