Stem cells for baldness?
What are the advantages?
Our current serum helps encourage regrowth. Patients’ results are far better than generic platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments. The effect of our team’s stem cell serums also remain over time. There is no risk of rejection or infection and patients experience little to no pain. We are still in a phase of experimentation and data collection but it’s already evident this therapy is a radical improvement over current treatments.
What about timing and costs?
Patients see obvious results from 3 to 6 months to a year. We currently charge around $1,800. This is a major improvement over transplants, which often cost around $8,500. Just remember that our treatment is only available at authorized facilities.
You talk about diseases, but for the Italian law it's about aesthetics ...
Italian hospitals do not consider baldness a disease. However, it functions as such and the U.S. recognizes this fact. People can go bald for numerous reasons but alopecia, an autoimmune reaction, is the most common. Think of it as a thyroid disease. Put simply, most instances of hair loss have a pathology that coalign with other autoimmune diseases and effective treatments must use acknowledge such. This is without detailing the devastating social and psychological impact hair loss can have on someone, female or male.
What's your message?
Science indicates that most hair loss is pathological. Research and treatment should focus on origins rather than aesthetics. Such a mentality will lead to more effective results. The current attitude discourages innovation and curtails research. Patients should seek surgeons who specialize in hair restoration before those who specialize in generic cosmetics. Due to misinformation, though, many Italians are engaging in medical tourism Turkey is a generic example of where people visit due to advertising that boasts all-inclusive packages: air flight, hotel, sightseeing, and hair transplantation.”
