Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy and Hair Loss

 Stem cells have a wonderful potential to develop into different cell types and serve as an internal repair system, dividing without limit to replenish other cells. Each new stem cell can remain as a stem cell or become another type of cell with a specialized function, for instance a brain cell, a red blood cell or a muscle cell.

Stem cells can be artificially grown. The purpose of stem cell therapy is to harvest stem cells and re-introduce them to affected areas to treat human diseases.

Doctors believe that in the future stem cell therapy will be able to successfully treat cancer, spinal-cord diseases, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and many other impairments and conditions.

Stem Cell Therapy

New adult stem cells are introduced into damaged tissue, and due to their ability to self-renew, differentiate and assume a specific “cell task”, stem cell therapy offers a potential for replacing diseased tissue with minimal risks of side-effects.

There are four accessible sources of adult stem cells:stem-cell-therapy_Small

  • Bone marrow – which requires drilling the bone to extract the stem cells
  • Lipid cells – from adipose tissue which require extraction by liposuction
  • Blood – extraction through apheresis
  • Umbilical cord blood – extracted just after birth

Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Loss

Stem cell therapy for hair is a breakthrough procedure that may lead to success in treating baldness. The concept behind this treatment is the same as for brain damage, cancer, spinal-cord injury, heart damage, in which, according to doctors, stem cells will serve great ends in the future.

Medical researchers predict that using hair follicles containing stem cells may make treating baldness possible. Most research in the field concentrates on the activation of the progenitor cells already existing on the scalp, which consequently will regenerate making healthy hair.

Some clinics already offer stem cell therapy for hair loss. Due to the ever-growing trends of medical tourism, international clinics promote baldness therapy using stem cells to treat alopecia.

The process consists of extracting hair follicles from the patient, and then exposing them to a special processing. Finally the treated follicles with re-activated stem cells are re-inserted into the scalp.

Countries like India and Australia offer stem cell therapy for hair loss at a very favorable price.
