A stem cell hair transplant is similar to a traditional hair transplant. But rather than removing a large number of hairs to transplant in the area of hair loss, a stem cell hair transplant removes a small skin sample from which hair follicles are harvested.
The follicles are then replicated in a lab and implanted back into the scalp in the areas of hair loss. This allows hair to grow where the follicles were taken from, as well as where they’re transplanted.
Stem Cell Therapy: The Process
The process can be understood in a very easy way. If you have moderate hair loss, then it can be done in two sittings. In the first stage, the doctors will take away some hair follicles of yours, say approximately 500. Then, these follicles will be processed and cultured in a lab to produce more stem cells. Example, if they took 500 hair follicles of yours, they may multiply them to 1 lakh hair. After few days (maybe 15 or 20 days) the second stage of this therapy shall be executed. Here, they will insert all the processed hair onto your scalp. This is the simplest explanation for the process of stem cell therapy.
There is another procedure for this therapy as well. It is done for hair restoration process. In this process, patient’s blood is drawn out, concentrated and separated through a process called centrifugation. After this process, they re-inject it into the desired area. This therapy is also known as PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma. It is also a therapeutic non-surgical option for natural hair growth and stimulation.
