Cytomedix Heals Hair Restoration Surgical Wounds with AutoloGel PRP Gel

Cytomedix, a company that develops biologically active regenerative therapies for wound care, inflammation and angiogenesis, announced the launch of their Hair Restoration Wound Care Program at the recently held Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgeons.

As part of the program, Cytomedix showcased its new AutoloGel System and educated hair restoration surgeons about the benefits of AutoloGel PRP Gel to enhance outcomes in hair transplant surgery. The company is also helping hair restoration specialists integrate PRP Gel into their post-operative wound care protocols. The details of the service can be accessed from the Web site The Web site provides the rationale for use and the science behind using platelet rich plasma (PRP) for follicular unit transplant, as well as to generate new patient referrals. The site also provides a fast-growing list of surgeons offering AutoloGel PRP in their practice.

Platelets are essential for healing of wounds whether accidental or surgical. AutoloGel PRP speeds up the healing process by delivering a physiologically relevant concentration of platelets on the area of wound thereby stimulating the natural healing processes in the wounds at the donor and recipient sites during the transplant procedure.

"Previous studies using AutoloGel PRP by Robert J. Reese, D.O., a Board Certified hair restoration surgeon, Edina, Minnesota, have shown improved healing with less crusting, swelling, and redness after the hair transplant procedure," said Martin P. Rosendale, chief executive officer of Cytomedix, in a statement,

Alan J. Bauman, M.D., Board Certified hair restoration surgeon, Boca Raton, Florida, confirmed the fact saying, "The use of AutoloGel PRP applied to hair transplant wounds has had a positive impact on the rate and quality of post-operative care. Both our experienced team and our patients are delighted with the simplicity and speed of the PRP gel technique and the visual improvement in wound recovery one day post-surgery."

Cytomedix claims AutoloGel is the only PRP product that is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for wound management.

With the launch of PRP Hair Restoration Wound Care Program, Cytomedix plans to capitalize on the growing market of hair restoration surgeries. According to ISHRS 2010 Practice Census Results, more than 100,000 surgical hair restoration procedures are performed annually in the U.S.

A recent research from International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery’s 2011 Practice Census finds that demand for hair restoration surgery is on the rise mainly due to the demand for the less invasive Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) treatment. According to the research, the demand for hair restoration therapy has risen by 15 percent in the U.S. and 66 percent worldwide between 2004 and 2010.

Meanwhile Gary Hitzig, M.D., a leading U.S. hair restoration researcher and surgeon, recently unveiled a new topical ACell/PRP solution that combines the effects of healing and PRP, which he claims is more effective than traditional FUE hair transplant.

MatriStem MicroMatrix is a wound healing powder that promotes healing and tissue growth. When MatriStem MicroMatrix is combined with PRP, it can help both heal the wound and regenerate hair in men and women experiencing genetic hair loss.
