Stem Cell + PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
Treat your hair loss without surgery
Stem cells taken from your own fat tissue, when injected into the scalp, can reverse the shrinking of hair follicles.
What makes stem cells so unique is that they have the ability to repair and heal more quickly. Since stem cells have special regenerative properties, their ability to help with a variety of conditions and injuries is vast and promising.
In fact, research has discovered that stem cells can now be used within the hair follicles to promote new hair growth in those dealing with thinning hair or balding due to a variety of different factors.
Stem cell + PRP therapy is most effective for those in the early stages of hair loss or for patients who are not candidates for surgery. The treatment is also ideal for women who prefer to avoid hair surgery or do not have enough quality donor hair for a transplant.
What to Expect
In the stem cell + PRP procedure, we will first take a sample of your blood and spin it down to extract the platelet-rich plasma. Dr. Niedbalski will then perform a mini-liposuction to obtain 1 to 2 ounces of adipose (fat) tissue from your abdomen, flank, or hip area. This portion of the treatment takes about 30 minutes.
Using special equipment within our lab at Northwest Hair Restoration, live stem cells are extracted from the fat sample and combined with the PRP. Dr. Niedbalski then administers a number of stem cell + PRP injections into the scalp. The entire procedure may last 3 - 4 hours. For best results, Dr. Niedbalski recommends two treatments within a 3- to 6-month period.
There is very little downtime associated with the stem cell + PRP treatment, although you may experience some soreness in the liposuction area as well as the scalp for up to 7 days. You can go back to work the day after treatment, although you should refrain from exercise for at least a week.
Results from stem cell therapy, like other hair loss treatments, usually take 6 - 8 months before any noticeable improvement in hair density.
