When you started losing your hair, the landscape of hair restoration options might have been rather thin. Your best hope was to simply wait until your hair was finished completing its run and then have hair transplant surgery. As you settled into that plan of action, waiting for your turn at receiving FUT or FUE style surgery, new and less invasive hair restoration methods started to find their way into the industry. But what has really been exciting is to see how stem cell therapy has become more popular with people seeking to regain a full head of their own hair. The use of stem cells may have seemed a little odd at first, but now that their function is better understood, it only seems to make sense that this would become a modern way to approach a relatively straightforward solution for hair loss.
Why Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a fantastic approach for treating hair loss for a number of important and practical reasons. The first reason is because stem cells are mostly convenient to extract from the human body. There is a rich source of stem cells in the tissue that resides just below your skin. So, all we have to do is harvest this cellular material. The stem cells can be injected into the scalp to get them to work repairing your dysfunctional hair follicles. This approach is very similar to the approach of injecting the scalp with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the difference being that the PRP solution would have to be spun up in a centrifuge for optimal effectiveness. The advantage of using stem cell therapy, however, is that stem cells can take on the characteristics of any kind of cell they need to in order to affect positive change. The cells that preexist in the area where stem cells are being injected provide adequate instruction for the injected cells to properly orient themselves to the function they need to serve. When this simple method works to restore a significant amount of hair follicles, the patient will start to notice that their scalp is growing hair all on its own again.
