Female hair loss treatment gives women hope

Hair loss is a problem affecting millions of women. But a relatively new procedure is giving them a new sense of hope. The best part about this procedure is it’s done without surgery.  There’s no scalpel involved, no overnight hospital stay.  Patients are awake the entire time and the procedure is so quick, you can do it during your lunch break.Little did Laurel Lacy know her collection of vacation snap shots would also chronicle her life-long struggle with hair loss. “It’s at the point now that it is noticeable,” Lacy said. “I do want to address the problem.” Lacy is hoping a new injectable treatment will do the trick. “They’re not looking for miracles,” said Dr. Daniel McGrath. “If they’ve got a little bit of improvement they’ve got hope.” Dr. McGrath is one of only a handful of surgeons performing this innovative procedure known as ACell + PRP. Here’s how it works;First, Dr. McGrath draws a few large vials of blood from the patient. The platelet rich plasma or PRP is separated from the blood,and combined with an FDA approved powder, known as ACell. “This has all the gold in it,” McGrath said. After the patient’s head is numbed using a local anesthetic, the “liquid gold” as McGrath calls it, is injected into various parts of thescalp. Micro needling tells the dormant hair follicles to wake up. “That’s what turns it on,” McGrath said. “That’s what stimulates it to bring in stem cells and activating factors the growth factors etc.”  This makes existing hair stronger.  And in many cases, sprouting new growth. “It’s been shown quite miraculously to stimulate stem cells to reproduce similar types of cells where it’s placed,” he says The entire procedure takes about an hour.  And there’s little to no down time. The results?  Well, see for yourself.  Before and after pictures seem to show a significant improvement in the patient’s hair over thecourse of several months.  Lacy is hoping for a similar outcome.  Replacing her old photos with new ones featuring her new hair. “I’m very excited about it actually,” Lacy said. Dr. McGrath says the ACell + PRP procedure costs about $3500 per treatment and is not covered by insurance. It’s an option for both women and men who suffer from mild to moderate hair loss. Like 19 Action News on Facebook for the latest news, weather, sports and giveaways.Copyright 2014 WOIO.
