What Is Stem Cell Hair Restoration
Hair loss, particularly (PHL), pattern hair loss, is known to affect up to 80% of caucasian men and 40% of caucasian women, by the age of 70. PHL starts early for many young men and can be incredibly devastating, preying on one’s well-being, inducing states of depression and lowering the quality of life. In many different cultures, hair is synonymous with beauty. Hair loss can be a hard blow to one’s self esteem.
Stem cell hair restoration starts with a biopsy, in order to extract the stem cells. A cylindrical sample of tissue is removed via a punch biopsy. The stem cells collected from the sample tissue are then separated from the tissue, isolating the stem cells, through centrifugation. Hair follicles are duplicated in the lab. The procedure can involve injections and/or implants. Existing follicles are injected with stem cells to stimulate growth and new follicles are inserted on the bare areas of the scalp.
