What is stem cell Hair Transplant?
A stem cell hair transplant and a standard hair transplant are similar treatments. However, a stem cell hair transplant utilizes a small sample of skin from which hair follicles are taken, as compared to removing a significant number of hair to transplant to the region suffering hair loss. Stem cells are cells with the ability to transform into a variety of body cell types.
How does it Work?
How does it
- An initial punch biopsy is performed on the patient to get stem cells.
- During a punch biopsy, a tubular sample of tissue is removed from the skin by rotating an instrument with a circular blade into the skin.
- The stem cells are then removed from the tissue using specialized equipment.
- Small incisions are made at the recipient site.
- In the regions of hair loss, the remaining cell solution is injected back into the scalp.
- The physician carefully places these removed grafts into these incisions to finish the procedure.
