“Stem Cell” Therapy

Autolagous fat transplantation into the scalp

“Stem Cell” Therapy refers to mesenchymal stem cells that are harvested by suctioning fat from the abdomen (which has a high concentration of stem cells) then mixing the fat cells and breaking it up into small particles. This mixture is either injected by itself or mixed with PRP for reintroduction into the scalp. It is thought that mesenchymal cells release growth factors that might stimulate hair growth. The procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia. It takes 30 minutes to do. After the procedure, avoid getting the area wet for 2 days. The donor area can be tender for a few days. The procedure can be repeated every 6 months.
