What is a Stem Cell Hair Transplant?

Did you know one of the main contributors to hair loss is damage to the stem cell pools in hair follicles?

Genetics, excessive sunlight exposure, chemicals, and the ageing process can all cause damage to the hair follicles, causing a loss of stem cells which leads to hair thinning or balding. So how can we replenish these lost stem cells?

This blog will dive into stem cell therapy for hair, including stem cell hair transplants, to uncover why stem cells are the new revolutionary approach to hair loss treatment. First, what is a stem cell hair transplant?  

What is a Stem Cell Hair Transplant?  

The Este Medical stem cell hair transplant is a state-of-the-art procedure that combines the regenerative power of stem cell therapy with our hair transplant techniques.  

This innovative approach involves extracting stem cells from the body and injecting them into the scalp to regenerate the damaged or dead stem cells in the hair follicles to stimulate new, strong, and healthy hair growth. The stem cell therapy is then followed by a FUE or DHI hair transplant to generate fuller, more natural-looking results.  

This dual approach enhances the effectiveness of the treatment, providing a comprehensive solution to thinning or balding hair that effectively reverses your hair loss and restores your confidence in the process!

How Does the Este Medical Group Stem Cell Hair Transplant Work?

Prior to one of our hair transplant procedures, our stem cell therapy works to replenish the stem cells in the hair follicles, preparing the scalp to receive the hair grafts. A small fatty tissue sample is taken from the patient and the stem cells are then harvested from this sample.  

Once harvested, the stem cells are placed into a specialised device to be activated. This activation ensures the cells can replicate into the cell types that work to replace damaged or missing hairs.  

The stem cells are then carefully injected into the areas of the scalp affected by hair loss, producing new follicles and restoring healthy and reliable hair growth. Next, it’s time for the FUE or DHI hair transplant.  

The FUE hair transplant involves extracting individual hair follicles and transplanting them to thinning areas of the scalp with minimal scarring. The DHI hair transplant uses a specialised tool called the Choi Pen for precise implantation, resulting in natural and dense hair growth.

What are the Benefits of Stem Cell Hair Transplants with Este Medical?  

The Este Medical Group stem cell hair transplant works differently to a traditional stem cell hair transplant which replicates harvested hair follicles in a lab. The benefits of the stem cell hair transplant here at Este Medical includes:

  • Enhanced Results:  

Our stem cell hair transplant provides enhanced, more reliable results than stem cell therapy or a hair transplant alone. The synergy of these advanced hair restoration treatments ensures increased hair density, improved hair follicle survival, and more.  

  • Natural-Looking Regrowth:  

The combination of stem cell therapy with a hair transplant ensures that the transplanted hair blends seamlessly with the existing hair, providing natural-looking and long-term hair regrowth.

  • Minimal Downtime:  

Thanks to the advanced techniques used by our leading specialists here at Este Medical, patients can usually resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.  

  • Holistic Approach:  

The use of stem cells not only addresses hair loss but also promotes overall scalp health, leading to improved hair quality and longevity.

  • Boosted Confidence:  

If hair loss is robbing you of your confidence, our stem cell hair transplant can significantly improve your self-esteem. By effectively reversing hair loss, you can feel more confident in your appearance and experience a new lease for life.
