This MatriStem technology is used in a wide variety of surgical procedures due to its ability to revitalize and repair damaged tissues. ACell is a mix of natural proteins found within the body’s own tissue layers. Due to its organic nature, it is approved by the FDA.
When applied to a surgical site or open wound, the substance rejuvenates younger cells and fosters improved levels of hair growth.
Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide (through mitosis) to produce more stem cells. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues.
The results of the procedure can almost be described as “organic” as the effects are not immediately noticeable. Results will begin to develop along with the natural human hair growth cycle, and will probably be seen around the 4-month mark. Results in the hair line are often the most noticeable, though between 4 and 8 months patients will notice a fuller, denser, healthier head of hair.
