Habits affecting aCell + PRP
These habits can affect hair loss results. Alcohol affects the regular levels of estrogen and zinc, two factors, that eventually will affect hair growth. It reduces Zinc in the body which is essential in growing healthy hair. Recreational drugs significantly rise the levels of adrenaline which can trigger the malfunction of the hair growth cycle. Cocaine stimulates a vasoconstriction which will reduce the blood flow to critical tissues and a good blood flow is necessary for a great acquisition of PRP.
Yes, this behavior can effect your results.
Smoking effects blow flow circulation which can effect growth.
It possibly could affect your hair loss
Cocaine and nicotine are vasoconstriction and decrease blood supply to tissues. Alcohol can also cause problems with wound healing. Both these two mechanisms could be deleterious to the any situation where you are trying to encourage healing or new growth of tissue. That is exactly what you are trying to accomplish with prp and acell; ie to heal and promote growth of the hair cell. While there are no direct studies of the cause and effects of alcohol, cocaine, tobacco and prp and acell, I do think they could be counterproductive.

Any sudden shock to the body, such as that experienced from the use of recreational drugs like cocaine can trigger telogen efflivium which is the decrease of hair follicles that can lead to thinning, shedding and hair loss. Long term smoking generally reduces blood flow to extremities, and the decreased blood flow to the scalp will affect hair growth. Furthermore, excessive drinking can cause a drop in Zinc which is and essential mineral for healthy hair.
