What are Stem Cells and how can they help regrow hair?
A stem cell in general terms is any cell that can both replicate and differentiate. This means that a stem cell by definition can not only multiply, it can also turn into different types of tissues. And while there are different types of adult stem cells in our body, “Mesenchymal” Adult Stem Cells are the the type of stem cells we collect in very large quantities from your own body fat.
With respect to regrowing hair and hair loss treatments, Mesenchymal Stem Cells are able to form new blood vessels which aids greatly in the regeneration of hair follicles.
What is PRP and how can it help regrow hair?
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a product of your own blood. Dr. Obi uses the Magellan Autologous Platelet Separator System to produce a teaspoon of clear solution rich in platelets, growth factors and stem cells known as Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP. PRP is then combined with very large quantities of your own mesenchymal Stem Cells.
Dr. Obi uses Platelet Rich Plasma in many of the procedures he performs to help reduce bruising, speed recovery and to improve skin condition. These same characteristics allow PRP to regenerate hair follicles.
How Long are Treatment Sessions & Recovery Times?
Treatment times depend on the size of the area being treated. Dr. Obi may recommend a single treatment session or a series of treatments for optimal results.
Treatments consist of micro-lipo to harvest adipose stem cells from a small amount of unwanted body fat, and scalp injections. And you may resume your regular activities on the same day that you have your treatment.
What Does the Treatment Feel Like?
You should expect to feel little if any discomfort. Local anesthesia is used at the site of Micro-Lipo and the scalp injections are performed with a very fine syringe. If required, Dr. Obi may prescribe a sedative to help you relax during your treatment.
