There are so many options for reversing hair loss available. And it’s no surprise why – losing your hair is a sign of aging.
The endless search for the fountain of youth has created a massive market for serums, supplements, and even surgeries that promise to reverse the aging process.
But one cutting edge hair restoration treatment is gaining in popularity because of its effectiveness and quick recovery time. It’s called “Regenerative Medicine.”
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss, also called “alopecia,” can be caused by a number of things, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
- Women may experience noticeable thinning after giving birth
- People under a lot of stress can see noticeable hair loss
- Some diseases and medical treatments can cause hair to thin
About 80 million men and women in the United States have the medical condition called “hereditary hair loss.” You may have heard it called male- or female-pattern baldness, or “androgenetic alopecia.”
It is completely normal to lose between 50 to 100 hairs a day. If you see bald patches or lots of thinning, you may be experiencing hair loss. Many common causes of hair loss can be stopped or treated.
So, what is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative Medicine is different than hair plugs and other hair growth techniques on the market that help men and women who are losing hair – it can harness the body’s ability to heal itself.
The treatments are easily administered and require little to no downtime. It can even be an ideal alternative to surgery for a variety of conditions, including for those who experience hair loss.
How can stem cells help regrow my hair?
Stem cell hair restoration treatment uses adult stem cells from the patient’s own body.
When dead or damaged hair follicles stop growing, the body does not always replace them.
The growth factors in regenerative medicine work in numerous ways to improve and regenerate hair by providing nutrition and promoting new blood supply to the follicle; increasing hair shaft size.
Stem cells can replicate quickly and substantially. And when they are used to stimulate hair growth, they help retrigger the growth and reproduction of cells that are too old or damaged.
Men and women alike are affected by thinning hair and receding hairlines as they age. But reintroducing these stem cells to the scalp can help fight baldness, promote hair growth and give your hairline a more youthful appearance. As an added bonus, since the stem cells continue to divide, the chance of losing more hair decreases.
When will I results from the stem cell therapy hair loss treatments?
It can sometimes take several months for a patient to see results. The outcome of stem cell therapy depends on your body’s ability to heal, so results will vary from person to person.
One study published in 2017 by Italian researchers reported a 29% increase in hair density 23 weeks after stem cell therapy.
