Hair loss is a problem that most people find difficult to deal with, it can be depressing and haunting for your self-image. There may be one or more "triggers" for this problem. However, there are many preparations that can help you solve this problem, but only for a short time.
Hair transplantation using the most modern AHT method is today the most reliable treatment for solving the problem of baldness. However, lately, more and more research is being done on the application of stem cell therapy against hair loss. Stem cells are one of the methods of treatment that stimulates the regrowth of hair follicles for thicker and more natural hair.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are unique in their own way, because in the future they can become any type of cell. Stem cell hair loss treatment uses this feature to start the next phase of hair growth as soon as possible, after the previous hair has fallen out. Stem cells are located in the middle of the hair follicles and provide a continuous supply of cells. Hair stem cell transplant therapy collects their ability to regrow hair in sharp parts of the scalp.
Why use stem cells?
Because stem cells are collected from the patient's own body, they are therefore very safe and have a very low risk of reacting to infection or rejection.
How does the treatment work?
Human hair has three stages of growth and grows from follicles present in the scalp. Follicles act as a storehouse of strength, energy and nutrients for the hair. Hair loss occurs when testosterone is transformed into dihydrotestosterone or DHT. DHT causes the follicles to shrink and as a result the hair begins to become thinner and shorter. Damaged hair follicles prevent the growth of new hair. Also, as we age, hair follicles tend to shrink and stop responding to natural new growth stimulants leading to thinning and hair loss. The hair on the back of the scalp and around the ears is immune to the effects of DHT and therefore hair loss is less obvious in these areas.
Some research has shown that stem cells, when taken from DHT-resistant hair, help form new healthy follicles. Stem cells, when injected into hair follicles, can stimulate the growth of new cells, thus promoting the growth of new follicles and hair. Stem cell therapy for hair loss currently exists only on paper and the process is still in the research phase. However, some clinics offer stem cell treatments to regenerate gathered follicles to grow healthy hair.
