The latest research for stem cell application for hair loss has proven that stem cell therapy can regenerate hair follicles and lead to new hair growth in men and women. Hair loss frequently leads to low self-esteem and embarrassment for the people affected by hair loss.
Some Hair Loss Is Normal
In your natural hair growth cycle, losing up to one hundred hairs daily is normal. In hair loss, the hair follicle becomes damaged and scars, disrupting new growth.
Male pattern baldness, known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common cause of hair loss. Stress, changes in your hormones, hairstyles in which the hair is pulled too tight, medications such as antidepressants, chemotherapy, and beta-blockers, and other medical conditions will also cause you to lose your hair.
According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, “About 35 million American males and 21 million American females suffer from hair loss.”
A Brief Explanation of Alopecia
When you say the word alopecia, most people think of alopecia universalis, a condition that leaves a person hairless on the entire body. This condition is rare. Alopecia comes in three forms. Alopecia universalis, alopecia totalis, and alopecia areata the most common form of alopecia.
In alopecia areata, the hair follicles that grow hair are attacked by your body. Alopecia means bald, and areata is the medical term for patchy. When used together, it refers to patches of baldness. These bald spots or patches can be anywhere you grow hair on your body, including your eyebrows, eyelashes, armpits, beard, inner nose, and ears. Most baldness is seen on the scalp.
Alopecia universalis, as mentioned above, means hair loss all over your body.
Alopecia totalis means total baldness and refers to a completely bald head or scalp.
Current Treatments for Hair Loss
Current treatments for hair loss offer promising solutions to help individuals regain their confidence and achieve a fuller head of hair. Hair transplants have emerged as a highly effective option, involving the relocation of healthy hair follicles to areas of thinning or balding. Mesotherapy and PRP injections provide non-surgical alternatives, stimulating hair growth by delivering essential nutrients and platelet-rich plasma to the scalp.
For those who may not be suitable candidates for these procedures or do not want to go under surgery, stem cell therapy presents a compelling alternative. With its less invasive nature, stem cell therapy harnesses the body’s own regenerative abilities to stimulate hair follicles and foster new growth.
How Stem Cells Treat Hair Loss
At ProgenCell, we use autologous mesenchymal cells harvested from your bone marrow. Because these stem cells come from your bone marrow, the likelihood of rejection or receiving infected stem cells is eliminated.
Does stem cell therapy regrow hair? Yes, it does. More importantly, stem cells for hair loss are ideal for men and women. It is safe when done under sterile conditions, as we use at ProgenCell clinics. The stems treat male and female patterned baldness and regenerate your hair follicles while offering density to areas of thinned hair.
Stems cells for hair loss provide hair restoration that will last a long time and look natural, especially at the hairline where it counts most!
Current Stem Cell Research
Stem cell research for hair loss is in the early stages. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is currently sponsoring more than 4700 stem cell trials!
The current research includes the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) alone and in combination with other forms of stem cell therapy to rejuvenate hair follicles and create active growth in cells that no longer grow hair. So far, they have been able to slow down the balding and thinning hair using PRP.
In combination with stem cell therapy, PRP has grown hair within 3-5 months by enhancing tissue and cell healing while restoring the hair’s natural growth pattern.
Research using iPSCs (induced pluripotent stem cells to regenerate hair. Their target solutions are for people with alopecia that has caused scarring, alopecia caused by chemotherapy, and male pattern baldness.
Northwestern Medicine has been researching the stiffening of hair follicles as you age. The stiffening makes it difficult to impossible for the follicle to grow new hair. They have found that increasing miR-205 (a ribonucleic acid) softens the hair follicle and has renewed hair growth in ten days!
