What Is Autologous Conditioned Plasma?

Autologous Conditioned Plasma is the result of centrifuging (separating) blood to remove the red blood cells. What’s left, is a high concentrate of hundreds of naturally-occurring assorted proteins including growth factors, somatic cells, and other cytokines.

These growth factors are essential for overall cell health and function, including signaling cells to regenerate and repair tissues. Autologous Conditioned Plasma has the potential to repair and regenerate damaged cells to restore and maintain hair growth for stronger, thicker, and healthier hair.

Autologous Conditioned Plasma Therapy In Conjunction With Other Modalities

Autologous Conditioned Plasma has long been used in the medical fields of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, dentistry, and sports medicine. Though it is not an FDA-approved therapy for hair loss yet, there are extensive studies pending that leverage Autologous Conditioned Plasma as a non-surgical option for hair restoration.

Day Of Treatment

Minimal side effects include tenderness and a “tight” feeling. These symptoms usually resolve within 24-48 hours.

Most patients are able to return to normal day activities immediately post treatment. Patients should avoid exercise the first 24 hours, limit sun exposure for 48 hours, and hair color the first 72 hours post-treatment. Avoid anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Motrin, Iburprofen, etc.) for 3-7 days post procedure.

  • First, your blood will be drawn and placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood separating the bloods different components by their densities allowing the Autologous Conditioned Plasma to be collected.
  • Numbing cream will be applied to the area(s) being treated (since pain is quite minimal, some patients opt out of numbing).
  • Once the numbing cream has taken affect, the Autologous Conditioned Plasma concentrate is drawn and injections begin. This takes an average of 5-10 minutes.
  • After the area(s) have been treated, you’re done!

Each treatment begins with a complimentary consultation with one of our trained medical providers. After creating a customized treatment and you are deemed a good candidate the procedure will be scheduled. Some blood tests may be recommended prior to treatment to ensure good candidacy.
