Bangalore, January 13th 2016: Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic now offers patients of Alopecia the benefits of Hair Follicle Stem Cell therapy to enhance the regrowth of hair. This is a procedure that utilizes stem cells present in hair follicles. These cells are processed in a laboratory, made into solution and reintroduced into the scalp via injections on the bald site. In patients with less than 40% of hair loss, this treatment form is used as a standalone form or may be combined with PRP. For patients with more than 40% of hair loss, this procedure may be combined with hair transplant surgery for effective results.
Speaking on this procedure, Dr. Premalatha, Dermatosurgeon, Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic says, “In the first session with the patient, we extract hair follicles –using the dermal punches or plugged out hair. This is then sent to the lab for processing. These follicles are multiplied and a lotion prepared of it. This process takes around 3 days. A liquid form of the stem cells is obtained, in which the cells have been cultured in a specific media. The cell count is increased to one-two million on average. This liquid is then injected into the scalp after the application of local anesthesia.”
Speaking on the introduction of the procedure, Ms. Bani Anand, Founder and Managing Director, Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic says, “We are constantly looking for ways to improve on the results of hair regrowth with the various procedures that we offer. With stem cell therapy already being in extensive use and its efficacy proven, this therapy is ideal for introduction in the market right now”.
What makes this procedure interesting is its flexibility. Based on the extent of Alopecia, this is a procedure that can be performed independently, or in combination with PRP. It can also be combined with hair transplant surgery. Usually where hair loss is labelled between Grade 1 to 4, hair transplant surgery is not opted for. When there is a loss of more than 40% of the hair only then is surgery prescribed. In such cases stem cell therapy may be used on the table as well as six weeks post-transplant.
In general, this therapy is conducted over 3 sessions at a monthly interval depending on the grade of alopecia or the response shown.Alternately it can be 4-6 weeks interval. The schedule is created based on the response to treatment.It takes about 8-12 weeks for visible results.
