Regenerative medicine is at the forefront of the futur treatments. The article written by Regeneris Medical CEO is explaining how stem cells can be used today for Hair loss patients.
Stem Cells for Hair Loss? ( By Ryan Welter, CEO of Regeneris Medical)
PRP and SVF Treatment: WHY STEM CELLS?
Stem cells are tiny progenitor cells found in our body that can divide (through mitosis) and change (differentiate) into various cell types. Your stem cells are your body’s natural healing cells and can act as your repair system in your body by replenishing adult tissues. They are the source of all these cells that have died.
At Regeneris Medical, we use (MSCs) which is found in various adult tissues and derive them from the most accessible source of stem-cell rich tissue: Adipose tissue (aka fat cells).
MSCs are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types including: osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage), connective tissues and adipocytes (fat cells). Hair follicle papilla, which is a large structure at the base of the hair follicle bulb, is made up mainly of connective tissue and a capillary loop. Since it is mainly connective tissue, MSCs could play a role in the repair and regenesis of the hair follicle papilla.
This therapy is expected to work by activating already existing stem cells on the scalp. Most recently, some doctors have claimed that stem-cell therapy led to a significant and visible improvement in follicular hair growth.
The first step is a “Mini-Liposuction” We administer a local anesthetic and extract a small amount of fat from your abdomen (about 50 ccs). While we’re extracting the stem cells from the fat, we draw a small amount of blood. We then spin it in a centrifuge and extract the platelets. After that, we activate the platelets and add some naturally-occurring growth factors. Next, we combine the Stem Cells and the Platelet Rich Plasma and return it to your body through a series of pinpoint injections.
Despite sounding complex, these revolutionary procedures are very easy, and can give you the natural results that you are looking for.
