Stem cell treatment on hair aims to eliminate fragility and prevent hair loss. It can be applied on anyone who wants to have healthy, problem-free hair.
Treatment takes place in a clinic and is carried out by an expert team who will apply local anaesthetic creams, this means the patient returns to daily life right after the procedure. It takes 10 minutes to derivate sufficient amount of fat for the procedure from the patient, another 40 to 60 minutes for these fat blocks to be stem cell enriched and 10 minutes to be applied to the scalp. Therefore, the procedure takes an hour to an hour and a half.
Stem cell treatment on hair is not a procedure to be repeated within short periods of time - In most cases, one application of stem cell treatment on hair is enough for results and the effects are usually obvious after one month. These positive effects will continue as the stem cells renew themselves over time.
Hair loss can happen due to a number of different factors. Hair can weaken and become frail as a result of genetic factors as well as age, stressful conditions and effects of cosmetic products. Hair loss in men usually starts on temporal sides and on the top area while in women, after a certain age, the division lines of the hair widens and hair gets visibly frail. Main conditions that trigger hair loss can be physical and emotional stress, health problems like anaemia, polycystic ovary syndrome, hypothyroid, also vitamin B and protein deficiencies, sudden weight loss and drug usage. Stem cell treatment is one of the most effective treatments to prevent hair loss, strengthen the hair and to make it look more vibrant. It is not an alternative to hair transplant operations.
To apply the stem cell treatment to hair:
+ First, a certain amount of fat is harvested from a section of the patient’s body.
+ The fat is then processed for its cells to be separated.
+ Following this procedure; a local anaesthetic cream is applied on the scalp and the stem cells are injected via special procedure.
+ After the procedure, the weakness of the hair reduces, the hair becomes stronger and more vibrant and hair loss decreases relatively after the treatment.
The ideal candidate for this procedure is anybody who is losing hair or shows symptoms of weakening or dilution in their hair or whose hair is dull or lifeless. It is quite common to recommend this procedure to people who have not lost their hair but who simply wish to have healthier hair. This is because the hair tissue rapidly renews itself with the injection of the stem cells on the patient’s hair following the stem cell treatment. Thus, the hair gets more vibrant, strong and full. This method, without any serious surgical operations and any interruption for the patient from their daily routines, enables stronger, healthier hair.
