Stem cell injections help men and women regrow their own hair
Both Men and Women Experience Hair Loss (also known as alopecia or baldness). Hair loss is common, but affects men and women differently. Although hair loss can begin during the teenage years, most commonly, early hair loss occurs in men. In women, hair loss is most commonly associated with menopause.
Hair loss (partial or total balding) affects over 80 million men and women today in America.
Although many treatments have been offered for hair loss, the newest, treatment uses your own adipose derived stem cells (ALMI) , offering a natural solution which causes dormant hair in bald and balding areas to regrow your own hair. Adipose-derived precursor hair follicle stem cells are recruited and processed for placement in your own bald and balding areas. Hair begins to appear with the next hair cycle (1-3 months).
Hair adds to your personality. Over 80 million men and women, though, live with varying degrees of hair loss (balding) on a daily basis. Often, they wonder about alternatives.
For those wishing to help their own hair regrow in a natural way without grafting and other hair transplant procedures , studies have confirmed hair growth for men and women within bald areas of the scalp through stimulation of dormant hair follicles using pre-hair follicle, adipose-derived stem cells.
Although not for everyone, in many cases, with adipose-derived stem cells, it is possible for men and women to regrow their own hair!
How does this work?
ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection for Hair Regrowth is a breakthrough biocellular hair rejuvenation procedure that uses your own body’s regenerative cells and fat tissue to improve the function of hair follicles in the scalp.
In a simple, comfortable outpatient procedure, or as an adjunct to a hair transplant procedure, these cells and surrounding tissues can be used to support hair follicle function, fight the progression of hair loss and enhance hair growth.
During the procedure Adipose (fat) derived stem cells are infused with added (PRP) platelet rich plasma to achieve the effect of regrowing your own hair.
What is the role of prp in this process. The prp or platelet rich plasma is rich in growth factors which promote healing. It does not contain stem cells. The stem cells are derived from processing the harvested and recruited adipose cells, separating their components into the stromal vascular fraction which has been shown to contain actual adipose derived stem cells which can diffentiate into needed tissue depending on where they are injected ( and under what conditions).
Known as the ALMI procedure (autologous lipocyte micronized injection), this provides an alternative to surgery with the advantage of using your own tissues to rejuvenate yourself.
By recruiting, harvesting, and reinjecting your own adipose-derived stem cells(known as the stromal vascular fraction) it provides a boost above that obtainable using PRP alone (PRP mainly contains growth factors which aid in healing).
This is ideal for those wishing to use their own tissues for self rejuvenation and who do not want a grafting procedure or who are not candidates for hair grafting.
For those who have undergone grafting procedures and are still losing their hair, this offers an additional option.
