How are stem cells from your fat beneficial in hair restoration? Regenerative Medicine allows you to use stem cells derived from your own fat tissue. After performing a lipo-aspiration procedure (miniature liposuction), the stem cell rich, Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is extracted from the whole adipose and these stem cells can be added to PRP to further boost the regenerative process on a cellular level. Research has shown that adipose-derived stem cells (ADSC’s) have proteins that exert diverse skin rejuvenating effects, such as the stimulation of collagen synthesis, triggering the growth of new blood vessels, as well as hair growth stimulating effects. Adding adult stem to PRP offers physicians another innovative tool for hair restoration.
PRP has been effective in restoring hair to the following:
- Male and female pattern hair loss
- Alopecia Areata
- Eyebrow or beard hypertrichosis
- Metabolic causes of hair loss, such as mediation induced or iron deficiency.
