What are stem cells?

Stem cells are the body's raw materials from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated.

Stem cells are special human cells that can develop into many different cell types, from muscle cells to brain cells.

Advantages of stem cells for hair Loss

The advantages of hair stem cells include:

  • Stem cells result in healthy, thick, and good-looking hair
  • Hair stem cells are a simple procedure that is easy to perform and can be done faster than a traditional Hair Transplant.
  • Hair stem cells do not need a great deal of care or a long recovery period after the procedure
  • Hair stem cells carry a lower risk of hair transplant failure or complications than traditional transplantation.
  • Hair stem cell transplantation can be performed even if there is no good donor area.

Stem cell hair transplant side effects

There is not enough information about the harms and side effects of stem cell hair transplantation. Known harms include bleeding and infection at the site where the stem cells were taken or at the injection site within the scalp, as with any other type of medical or cosmetic procedure. Some scar tissue can also form at the place where the stem cells were extracted.

There is no significant risk of a stem cell biopsy, but damage to nearby nerves or arteries is possible in rare cases.

An important downside of stem cell hair transplantation is that it is costly.

There is no need for a long recovery period after the procedure, it is sufficient to rest during the rest of the day after stem cell transplantation only.

Strenuous exercise should be avoided during the first week after the procedure, and conditions that may strain or damage the scalp, such as scratching the scalp, should be avoided.
