Hair restoration procedures are becoming increasingly developed and practical as technology and medical research continue to advance. After the success of traditional hair transplant techniques, professionals wanted to advance the field with the introduction of the stem cell hair transplant procedure.

The stem cell hair transplant is the latest and most sophisticated advancement in hair transplantation techniques to date. Some clinics have already started to perform this revolutionary technique, while others are waiting to see the long-term results before making a decision.

What Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells play a role in numerous medical processes across various fields, including hair restoration. The structure of stem cells allows them to be beneficial for many conditions, including the treatment of hair loss through a stem cell hair transplant. They are the foundation of development in the body.

Stem cells are unspecialized and have the capacity to regenerate themselves, copy themselves, differentiate, or develop themselves into cells with specialized functions. Adipose tissue, or fat tissue, is a rich source of stem cells in the human body. A small sample of this tissue, taken from any resistant part of the body, can be used for the targeted treatment without the risk of rejection; the sample will be from the patient’s own body.

The Procedure: How Does Hair Transplant Benefit From Stem Cells?

Stem Cells

The stem cell hair transplant differs from other techniques in that it does not rely on harvesting and transplanting a large number of grafts. Instead, the regenerative characteristics of stem cells are used to treat tissues in the hair loss area and stimulate new hair growth.

The Procedure

The procedure starts with a detailed examination and local anesthesia. This is followed by the extraction of the sample, which is rich in stem cells. This sample can be harvested gently with a suction device or an instrument with a blade. The collected sample is then processed in a centrifuge machine to separate the stem cells from the tissue. A cell suspension is then injected back into the areas of hair loss The whole process takes around two and a half hours.

Recovery After Stem Cell Hair Transplant

Patients can be given antibiotics in order to prevent any risks of infection before and after the procedure. The stem cell hair transplant does not require a specific recovery period. Patients can get back to their daily lives shortly after the operation. It is expected that some discomfort will be experienced; however, this should subside within a week.

Some patients may experience a headache and itching after the procedure, which is to be expected and will subside within a few days. Mild scarring, bleeding, and irritation may occur in the area where the sample is collected. However, it is not expected to cause any scarring in the treated area. Patients are advised to refrain from heavy exercises for the first week after the operation.

Who Is a Suitable Candidate for Stem Cell Hair Transplant?

Stem cell restoration has been found to be an effective treatment for the following conditions:

  • androgenetic alopecia (female pattern baldness)
  • male androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness)
  • cicatricle alopecia (hair follicles are damaged and replaced with scarring)

The stem cell procedure is applicable for both men and women. Those with significant hair loss in various areas of the body, including the beard, mustache and eyebrows, as well as those who are reluctant to undergo a surgical hair transplant or who have not achieved satisfactory results from other medical treatments for hair loss, may be suitable candidates for a stem cell hair restoration procedure.

Stem Cell Hair Transplant Costs

The cost of a hair transplant with stem cells is not yet determined, as the treatment is still in its infancy and not commonly performed. The stem cell hair transplant procedure,which was recently invented, offers numerous advantages and promises a highly effective and smooth procedure.

Some clinics are currently offering this procedure, but it is still in the research phase, and the long-term effects and results cannot be guaranteed. However, even at this early stage, the stem cell hair transplant offers the best prospects for achieving optimal results in a restoration.

When it becomes widely used in related clinics, hospitals and medical centers, it is likely to revolutionize the hair transplant concept and become the number one choice of specialists and patients.
