A-cell to improve percent of hair growth?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, new member here.


I am about 90% decided to book a FUE procedure early next year, and in my consultation, the Dr. suggested A-cell, which he says is a 'growth factor derived from pork'. Apparently this is used to increase hair density, improve growth, and reduce scarring. They inject this into the scalp during surgery.


Has anybody ever heard of this before? Or is this just an up-sell gimmick?


thanks in advance, and excited to join this network!
