Stem cells contain the most basic regenerative building blocks of the human body, which is why they are used for cancer, diabetes, and childhood disease treatments. But did you know that stem cells can also help you regenerate your hair?
There’s three places we can get stem cells from in the adult body: blood, bone marrow and fat. The stem cells from blood are difficult to use, so they aren’t used in cosmetic surgery or hair replacement. The stem cells in bone marrow and in fat are much easier to process and turn into treatments that will cause your hair to regrow.
“You’re Going To Do What With My Fat?”
There are, in fact, stem cells in your fat. And since they are easier to get to than bone marrow stem cells, we like to use them! But we don’t just spread body fat over your head, there’s a lot more to it than that! Once the fat cells are removed through liposuction, they are purified, so only the stem cells remain, and then combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP) before being injected into the bald areas of the scalp.
The mixture of stem cells and PRP is a rich combination that provides a happy medium for your hair follicles to regenerate and grow. It’s so powerful that it can be used on its own to stimulate hair growth, or it can be used in conjunction with FUE, NeoGraft, or other transplant options.
