Dr. E’s Health Update: A New Approach to Stemming Hair Loss

Stem cell therapy shows promise in maintaining hair growth.

Hi friends, 

Were you pleased with what you saw when looking in the mirror this morning? What about what you did NOT see? Like the thinning hair and bald spot that is out of our sight – but is all too obvious to those around us. If you’ve tried other hair loss treatments without success, I have some good news for you. Stem cell therapy, which has succeeded in so many other medical applications, is now showing promise in stopping hair loss. 

Stem cell therapy has been a topic of interest in the field of hair restoration, showing potential for promoting hair growth and addressing certain types of hair loss. While this area of research is still evolving, here is how stem cell therapy is being applied for hair restoration:

Mechanism of Action:
Stem cell therapy for hair restoration involves the use of stem cells to stimulate the hair follicles, promote hair growth, and potentially regenerate damaged hair follicles. The goal is to rejuvenate the hair follicles and encourage the growth of new hair.
Types of Stem Cells Used:
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are commonly used in hair restoration treatments. These cells can differentiate into various cell types, including those that support the growth of hair follicles and contribute to tissue regeneration.
The procedure typically involves harvesting stem cells from the patient's own body, often from adipose tissue (fat) or bone marrow. These cells are then processed and prepared for injection into the scalp, where they can promote hair growth and improve the overall condition of the hair follicles.
Potential Benefits:
Stem cell therapy for hair restoration may offer benefits such as improved hair density, thicker hair, and a more robust and healthy hair growth cycle. It has the potential to address certain types of hair loss, including male and female pattern baldness and alopecia areata.
Clinical Research and Efficacy:
While some studies have shown promising results, more research is needed to fully establish the long-term efficacy and safety of stem cell therapy for hair restoration. Factors such as the specific type of hair loss, the patient's individual response to treatment, and the quality of the stem cell preparation can all influence the outcomes of the therapy.

If you are not seeing results from other types of hair loss treatments and are not ready to surrender to the all-too-obvious look of hair implants, stem cell therapy could be right for you. At AgeRejuvenation we can design a stem cell treatment program that is personalized for you and the type of hair loss you are experiencing.
