Is There Sufficient Proof that ACell Grows Hair? (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

How many people believe that Drs. Hitzig and Cooley have already offered sufficient proof that ACell (or ACell in conjunction with PRP) grows new hair, or achieves "autocloning" of hair?

Poll Vote
 Do you believe that Drs. Hitzig and Cooley have proven that ACell (or ACell with PRP) can grow cosmetically significant amounts of hair?
0% (0) I definitely believe this; no further evidence is necessary.
28% (7) I think it is very probable, but I think we still need to see more evidence (controlled testing, photos, etc.)
56% (14) I think it is improbable. ACell can help for wound healing, but cannot achieve hair regeneration.
16% (4) ACell is all hype and no reality. Drs. Hitzig, Cooley, and other hair transplant surgeons are guilty of deliberate exaggeration and are trying to lure new patients to their Hair Transplant practices.
  25 voters have answered this question.

Is There Sufficient Proof that ACell Grows Hair?

Is this going to turn out into another long discussion thread? We have all read the many threads on acell before. Lets just leave it up to a vote.I'sn't that why Roger that created this poll? Or is this just going to turn into this? http://www.hairsite.com/hair-loss/forum_entry-id-83492-page-0-category-1-order-last_answer.html

@ Iron_Man

Is There Sufficient Proof that ACell Grows Hair?

I mean …

1) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to make strip wounds almost undetectable? YES

2) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to regenerate missing parts (e.g. through transection etc) of a hair follicle? YES but it more of an increasing in healing time, i mean this will make "downtime" shorter

3) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to make 2 or more hairs from 1 plucked hair in the recipient area (“AutoCloning” etc)? Yes if you consider the plucked hair is successfully transplanted then you can say this

4) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to improve the “take-rate” of FUE/FUT grafts (more “robust growth” in the recipient area) if applied to them? YES because it fastens healing time and provide cells from dieing

5) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to thicken up miniaturized hair follicles or even the ability to produce/create brand new hair follicles if just a MatriStem/PRP or a MatriStem/arterial blood combo is injected into the scalp? YES but only if you hit the follicle dead on and therefore trigger the healing event

6) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to rejuvenate tissue and/or to reprogram (stem)cells (e.g. to make “embryonic-like” tissue)? Thats debatable

7) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to make already mad people even more mad? OHHHH Yes i does, patients and docs the same way, because mad gucs like Rassman still dont believe regenerated limbs. But i wouldnt blame him because Tattoo Ink sometimes (when inhaled) causes major mirages.

8) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability … be used on multiple occassions succesfully? Yes plain and simple

I liked this poll but it was a little bit to hard driven in one direction and two of the answers are somehow extreme (first and the last) :-)

roger_that - I agree too. The poll idea is basically “a good idea”. But there is a BIG problem involved,
so that I CAN’T vote …

Your created poll –as is- is NOT specific enough!

I mean …

1) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to make strip wounds almost undetectable?

2) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to regenerate missing parts (e.g. through transection etc) of a hair follicle?

5) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to thicken up miniaturized hair follicles or even the ability to produce/create brand new hair follicles if just a MatriStem/PRP or a MatriStem/arterial blood combo is injected into the scalp?

6) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to rejuvenate tissue and/or to reprogram (stem)cells (e.g. to make “embryonic-like” tissue)?

7) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability (basically) to make already mad people even more mad?

8) Has ACell’s ECM product MatriStem the ability …

I think you should create a NEW ACell poll …

I think that Acell probably grows hair but not enough hair. I feel like they are onto something but they need to do something to give the treatment some oomph. They need to take it to the next level.

@ slashed

Is There Sufficient Proof that ACell Grows Hair?

i have not seen any convincing evidence and if i did I'd be more inclined to credit PRP rather than Acell.

i do think its useful for those (stupid enough) to get a strip transplant in terms of preventing too much scar tissue formation.

@ kekeke

It would be interesting to have Drs. Hitzig and Cooley vote on this Poll

» The evidence provided so far proves that autocloning works in concept imo.
» It would, however, be nice to see a hair count study on donor regrowth.
»
» I'm way more hesitant about Hitzig's PRP/Acell injections. I don't see how
» a genetic condition could be remediated in a permanent way by injecting
» some growth factors. Feels more like some arbitrary concoction of 'things
» that supposedly are good for other .. things.'

Thank you, I agree with most of what you say. But remember, "autocloning" is a term that Dr. Hitzig coined to refer to his own (dubious) procedures where he allegedly resurrects hairs using ACell, PRP, and (maybe) plucking. Although he is inexplicably reluctant to offer us real proof or evidence of any believable kind.

"Hair Multiplication" is the term that Dr. Gho coined way back in the 90s to refer to any procedure that purports to "multiply" hair follicles, either by injecting cells into the scalp, or transecting (dividing) follicles into halves which then allegedly grow into new follicles, effectively multiplying the number of viable follicles.

NEITHER has been proved conclusively with overwhelming public disclosure of results according to the scientific method; however so far, Gho's argument is much stronger and more believable.

My opinion is that the Hitzig/Cooley/Rassman/Bernstein preoccupation with ACell is an example of HT surgeons desperately latching onto a gimmick and trying to take the easy, cheap, low-investment route to resurrecting NOT your hairs but their HT clinics, which I believe were financially hard hit by the recession.

I'm way more hesitant about Hitzig's PRP/Acell injections. I don't see how a genetic condition could be remediated in a permanent way by injecting some growth factors. Feels more like some arbitrary concoction of 'things that supposedly are good for other .. things.'
