Hair loss effects both men and women. The causes of hair loss is still not clearly understood and many types of treatments have been tried and to some degree are effective. Now it is possible to use your own fat stem cells, harvested from your waist area to help rejuvenate the scalp and tissue responsible for hair growth.
Your fat is a rich source of stem cells. There are large quantities of stem cells in your abdomen and inner thighs. The stem cells are typically in a dormant state. By removing them and activating the stem cells, a surgeon can use these regenerative cells to repair and renew tissue in the body. This process is known as regenerative medicine, using the bodies own cells to restore form or function.
For hair loss the procedure is straight forward and takes about 3 hours. A mini-liposuction procedure is performed on the patient, removing about 50-100cc of fat. This is taken from the waist area. Then the fat is put into a centrifuge and spun for 5 minutes. The stem cells go to the bottom of the test tube and are collected. Then an activation solution made up of natural proteins is added to " turn on " the stem cells, takes about one hour. The activation solution is completely rinsed off so only the patients own stem cells are used for the treatment. Finally, the stem cells are directly injected into the dermis of the scalp, near the hair follicle and supporting tissue. The stem cells go to work repairing the tissue and increasing cellular function. There is no issue with rejection as they are the patients very own cells.
