AmnioFix® for Hair Loss
Stimulate Hair Growth with AmnioFix
AmnioFix® is a product developed by MiMedx, a tissue processing company that develops collagen-rich products from placental tissue. AmnioFix contains 226 different growth factors and cytokines known to enhance healing and stimulate hair growth. All of the placental tissue for AmnioFix is donated by healthy, consenting mothers that have delivered a full-term live birth by scheduled caesarean section. All tissue has been tested for infectious diseases prior to processing.
AmnioFix is being used to treat hair loss in a fashion similar to ACell. These products have a lot in common but there are some important differences that may make AmnioFix a more effective therapy for hair loss.
Important similarities are:
- AmnioFix and ACell are both classified as an extra-cellular matrix (ECM)
- Both products are used by physicians to
- Enhance healing
- Control inflammation
- Reduce scar tissue
- Treat hair loss (off-label use)
Primary differences are:
- AmnioFix comes from human tissue vs. ACell, which comes from animal tissue
- AmnioFix is more biologically active than ACell once injected into the scalp
The use of scalp injections to treat hair loss, or as an added component of hair restoration surgery, can do wonders for new hair growth and speed up your recovery.
