Stem Cell Therapy

One of the most recent advancements in the field of hair restoration is the stem cell hair transplant technique. Stem cells are a type of cell that exists in the body and has the ability to differentiate into many different types of cells in order to grow a tissue. It works in a manner similar to conventional transplantation techniques by transferring hair follicles from healthy areas of the scalp to balding areas to encourage hair growth

What is the procedure of Stem Cell Therapy?

The area where the fat containing stem cells is harvested, usually the abdomen, is anesthetized. After the fat cells are extracted, they are placed in a centrifuge in the treatment room, where the stem cells are separated and concentrated before reinjection. Depending on the degree of hair loss being treated, these concentrated stem cells are injected into the scalp in two to six injections. The cells immediately get to work, interacting with stem cells that are already present but sparse and inactive in the scalp and hair follicles.

The addition of new stem cells causes a reaction in the dormant stem cells in the scalp, signaling the follicles to begin producing chemicals, effectively causing a chain reaction across the rest of the follicles on the head. The previously dormant or deteriorated follicles begin to regenerate, producing healthy, strong hair once more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell hair transplantation is a new technology that uses the patient’s own stem cells to treat advanced hair loss. Stem cells are a type of cell that can differentiate into many different cell types in order to grow tissue. They are referred to as “mother cells” because they have the ability to divide and produce all types of body cells.

When will my hair grow back after stem cell transplant?

Three months after a stem cell hair transplant, hair growth should begin. However, the new hairs may be coarser than the surrounding hairs, and hair loss may resume in the future (though this is rare).

Is the stem cell therapy painful?

No, the stem cell Hair therapy is not painful.
