Stem cell hair growth treatment has already applied by many center of health in all over the world, We all lose hair, around 50-100 hairs each day, on average. But for some people, hair loss can be much more severe, causing partial or complete baldness. Other causes of hair loss include extreme stress, medical conditions – such as thyroid disorders, anemia and psoriasis – and use of certain medications. The most common form of hair loss, also referred to as alopecia, is hereditary hair loss, in which a person inherits the condition from their mother or father. This affects more than 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States.

The average American loses more than 100 hairs every day, and it’s perfectly normal. But can we imagine if that number increased into uncontrollably high volumes of rapid hair loss to the point of partial or complete baldness? The promise of a successful human stem cell hair growth trial could one day lead to the benefit of the 50 million men and 30 million women who are affected by hair loss in the United States. This could be a game changer for those who are completely bald and don’t have the option of conventional hair transplant surgeries that other partially bald people can benefit from.

Current treatments for hair loss include hair restoration medication, though the results vary in each patient. Another treatment is hair transplantation, which involves removing hair follicles from one area of the head with normal hair growth and placing them in an area that lacks growth. The technique uses pluripotent stem cells, which can be turned into almost any type of cell in the body. The researchers were able to transform them into dermal papilla cells, which are responsible for regulation hair growth in humans. Once they injected the mice with the stem cells and saw hair grow, they knew they were on the path to success. Autologous stem cells from the patients own fat is used for the procedure. It is a safe and easy procedure to experience. First the patient undergoes a small procedure in which fat cells are removed from the abdomen or hip region under local anesthesia. It is done under tumescence anesthesia. The fat is then processed in a special device that separates out the stem cells from the fat. The stem cells are then injected in the scalp under local anesthesia.
