For many, losing hair would push them to look for the latest and most effective hair treatments the soonest time possible. Hair loss is caused by the most common things one would never suspect such as abnormal hormone levels, genetic predisposition to baldness, stress, childbirth, side effect of certain drugs or other medical procedure, injuries, medical condition, diet, or some cosmetic procedures. If not treated immediately, hair loss can cause emotional distress, lower self-esteem, anxiety, and depression.
And men are not alone in this dilemma. Hair loss can be particularly difficult for women, who may end up developing negative body image issues more than men. But losing your hairline can be avoided or at least remedied with the help of stem cell hair treatment that can efficiently regrow your hair follicles to help multiply hair cells
Why Stem Cell for Hair Treatment?
There are several reasons why stem cell therapy is a popular hair loss treatment among those who suffer from thinning hair or receding hairline. First, it has been proven to work against hair loss without compromising your safety because it is minimally invasive as it only requires implanting hair follicles on your scalp.
Second, stem cell hair treatment is ideal for those who are badly in need of more abundant hair as soon as possible because it can be completed within just a few sessions and you will see the results within a month with just a little discomfort. That is how fast the stem cells work.
Third, it does more than help hair grow. The new hair growth will benefit from improved hair texture and quality, too.
Stem cell hair treatment gives hope not only to men and women who want to prevent more hair loss to maintain their appearance but also to those who suffer from Alopecia due to underlying medical conditions.
How Stem Cell Hair Treatment Works
People with slight to moderate hair loss may only require two sessions. During the first one, the doctor will remove around 500 hair follicles. These will be processed and lab-cultured to produce more stem cells. It may take around 15 to 20 days before the processed hair will be injected onto your scalp.
This process is as it is because human hair grows on the hair follicles still attached to your scalp, which meant that you cannot expect regrowth from dead or damaged hair follicles. Since stem cells were found to effectively stimulate cells, they can help grow a new batch of hair follicles once transplanted onto the scalp.
Another way that hair follicles produced from stem cell treatment work is that they continue to provide chemical signals to aging, shrinking follicles. These signals will tell them to continue growing healthy, quality hair.
What to Expect
Stem cell therapy for hair loss is deemed safe, considering its minimal side effects. There is no cause for concern. It only requires two to six sessions, depending on the extent of your hair loss or damage.
During the session, you can expect a mild pinprick while new hair follicles are injected onto your scalp. You might also feel some pain after the treatment, but it should disappear after seven days or so. The procedure does not require a recovery time, with the only precaution being to avoid doing excessive exercise for a week. It is also important to get the treatment with a companion who can drive you home or arrange for someone to fetch you from the clinic because you cannot drive yourself home after the session due to the use of local anesthesia.
Since the hair loss treatment uses your own stem cells, you don’t need to worry much about the minimal risk of rejection.
According to an Italian research on stem cell hair transplants, it has very promising results. It shows a 29 percent increase in the subject’s hair density 23 weeks after getting the procedure.
However, stem cell hair treatment can be quite expensive. But if you have tried so many solutions before without any success and you are willing to try this new method, stem cell may be your chance to restore your hair to its former glory. Just make sure to find the best clinics offering the therapy, those who can show proven and tested results with previous patients.
