Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Loss
For men and women who are losing hair the experience can be frustrating. The association of a full head of hair with youth and vitality has left many people searching for a solution that truly works and which does not simply provide the false promises that numerous adverts offer.
Stem cell hair growth is a new, safe, and effective method of hair restoration. Many patients are excited to learn that stem cell therapy can be utilized as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with hair transplant surgery, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, and topical treatments to maximize results. Because the wounds created during microinjections are so small, stem cell hair restoration can also be used to restore previously untreatable areas like the eyebrows, moustache, beard, scars and burn wounds.
The concept of stem cells dates back to 1868 and can today be defined as: unique cells that have the ability to grow into several other types of cells. Therefore, stem cells can be considered as the building blocks of the body, providing a blueprint from which other cells are made.
Most recently, it has been discovered that fatty tissue contains rich reservoirs of stem cells that can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including hair loss. In recent years specialists have developed the following technique to utilize a patient’s own stem cells for hair restoration.
The procedure is an out-patient one with local anesthesia and a mild oral sedative being given. A very small liposuction procedure is performed on the belly, flanks or “love handles” to obtain the patient’s own fat. A special process is used to isolate and concentrate the stem cells from the fat and these are then injected into the scalp. The area enriched with stem cells becomes extremely fertile, producing new, as well as fuller, thicker hair.
