What causes hair loss

Hair loss can occur due to a variety of factors including age, disease, stress, genetics, and poor nutrition. Whatever the cause, hair loss can be very distressing and affect quality of life.

How Does Hair Restoration Work with Stem Cells?

Hair restoration using stem cells is a minimally invasive procedure in which stem cells harvested from the placenta, are used to regrow hair. These amniotic stem cells help to restore hair, because they contain growth factors.

The stem cells are injected into the scalp and help to regrow hair by assisting with the regeneration of blood vessels. They also have an anti-inflammatory effect. This is beneficial in cases where hair loss is caused by the inflammation of the hair follicles.

Hair restoration with stem cells is performed as an outpatient procedure, and is carried out using topical anesthesia. A single session takes approximately 45 minutes, and 2 or more sessions made be needed for patients with moderate hair loss.

It typically takes 3-4 months for patients to see results from stem cell therapy for hair loss. Optimal results can take up to 12 months.
