We lose hair throughout the day––every day. Both men and women lose anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs in any given day through a process called alopecia, which is normal hair loss.
Hair grows in stages with each hair follicle experiencing a growth period from 2 to 7 years, with an approximately 60-day rest period where the follicle is dormant.
On a healthy head of hair approximately 85% of hair is in the anagen or growing phase.
We lose our hair for a variety of reasons, but not to worry as those who experience hair loss or a lack of hair regrowth can find a resolution in Stem Cell Therapy! This breakthrough technology, utilizing the powerful and restorative benefits of stem cells, could be the answer you’ve been looking for!
Changes in hair can range from thinning or alterations in texture all the way to complete balding. Thankfully, Stem Cell Therapy for hair loss at AgeRejuvenation targets the body’s natural regenerative processes, helping hair transition out of the dormant phase and back into the growing stage.
Read on to learn how therapy at AgeRejuvenation can combat the common symptoms of hair loss without the need for complex regimens or invasive surgery.
Common Changes to Hair Over Time
Hair loss, or alopecia, can be a gradual or sudden occurrence, with symptoms ranging from mild to severe hair loss or thinning.
Factors such as genetics, nutrition, and stress levels can all impact hair loss, with symptoms ranging from mild to severe. Chemical changes such as chemotherapy, acne medication, and even hormonal imbalances can all impact the rate at which our hair falls out. This type of damage can compromise hair follicle’s functionality causing them to remain in the dormant, or telogen phase.
The trick to sustaining a healthy, thick head of hair is to recognize the symptoms of hair loss and act on them as soon as you can.
Pattern Baldness – this is the most common type of hair loss experienced by both men and women and is the natural hair loss associated with the aging process.
Alopecia Arreata – this type of hair loss is characterized by circular patches of hair loss across the scalp. Most people only experience one or two of these patches while some may experience far more. Some believe that this condition is caused by an autoimmune disorder where the body becomes confused and begins attacking the hair follicle.
Thinning – hair may appear to be thinning in sections or across the scalp. Known as telogen effuvium, this is characterized by a decrease in the number of hairs in the growing stage and an increase in the number of hairs in the dormant stage.
Receding hairline – experienced by approximately 2/3rds of men, this type of hair loss is characterized by a gradual retreating of the line where the hair stops growing, causing a larger and larger region of sparsity or shiny baldness.
Balding – Balding can happen to both men and women in varying degrees: men usually see a receding hairline first while women may notice thinning patches on the crown.
Physical Damage – this type of hair loss is experienced by people who regularly pull their hair very tight or use chemicals to process or treat their hair, which can damage the hair follicle.
Hair loss has been a real issue for people since the dawn of time. It’s only recently that we’ve lived long enough to really experience its progressive effects or had the science to treat it. Today, there are easy, natural solutions available to combat these various types of hair loss using our body’s growth factors and concentrated stem cells to do the work.
Rejuvenating Hair with Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are highly concentrated growth factors, they are undifferentiated meaning they have not turned into a specific tissue type (ex. lung, joint etc.).
These undifferentiated cells can be reintroduced to almost any region in the body to promote regrowth – healing damaged or compromised tissue, promoting regeneration of the cell, and restoring cellular function for a long time to come.
The stem cells used at AgeRejuvenation undergo the same testing and screening process as organ donations and are taken from umbilical cords from full-term, scheduled cesarean sections. These types of cells are immunopriveleged, meaning there is almost no risk of reacting and all mothers undergo an extensive screening process.
By implementing this ground-breaking technology, the medical practitioners at AgeRejuvenation are able to halt hair loss in its tracks, visibly restoring hairs thickness by causing once-dormant hair follicles to begin growing again. This can also improve hair texture and sometimes color, staving off the effects of hair loss for years to come.
The Process of Stem Cell Therapy
To restore hair, individuals are typically prescribed a daily topical or oral medication to promote hair growth with mixed results and side effects. Some opt for a more aggressive route where hair is surgically removed from one area of the scalp and reinserted into small holes made in the skin. This can be painful and does not restore hair to its prior glory as the patient has the same number of hair follicles––only they are now more spread out across the scalp.
Stem Cell Therapy is a far simpler process, utilizing your body’s own PRP, or Plasma Rich Platelets, (which contain your body’s own growth factors) and combining them with concentrated stem cells. In this uncomplicated procedure, your body’s own natural growth factors are injected into the scalp to awaken dormant cells. Although topical numbing is used, there is no downtime associated with the process and patients begin seeing improvements in hair loss and new growth forming rather quickly. Due to the highly-concentrated nature of the stem cells, improvements can continue to be seen for months to come.
Stem Cell procedures are performed at any of our 5 locations throughout Hillsborough and Manatee County.
