Stem cells can morph into any needed cell type, making them versatile. Unlike specific-task cells, stem cells can divide endlessly and specialize.
Researchers study stem cells to explore their potential benefits. Most stem cell research aims to find ways to replace damaged or malfunctioning cells. One recent discovery pertains to how stem cells can help people with hair loss.
Stem Cells and Hair Transplants
An article from Healthline identifies stem cell hair transplants as a potential new balding treatment. Doctors use a punch biopsy to extract stem cells from patients. The doctor removes scalp tissue from the patient with a circular blade. The doctor then separates stem cells from the sample using a centrifuge. The doctor will use these stem cells to inject back into your scalp in areas suffering from thinning or balding.
In 2017, one team of Italian researchers successfully treated patients suffering from alopecia with this stem cell replacement therapy. Most U.S. stem cell hair replacements aren’t FDA approved; consult your doctor. Scientists continue to study the risks and side effects of this procedure. These procedures usually take about three hours to complete.
