Treating Hair Loss with Stem Cell & PRP Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been known for years to be a viable and strong treatment option for a variety of orthopedic conditions. PRP contains growth factors, meaning it can stimulate the regeneration of cells. In recent years, trials have been conducted to measure the efficacy of PRP therapy as a treatment option for hair loss.
In 2015, Stem Cells Translational Medicine released an article on the usage of platelet-rich plasma injections to the scalp and the resulting hair growth measured against a placebo subject control factor. They found that PRP therapy could effectively stimulate follicular and perifollicular angiogenesis. This means PRP therapy stimulates one of the major factors in active hair growth. Additionally, PRP therapy during this trial was found to have a positive impact on male androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) without any major side effects.
Mesenchymal allograft stem cells have been a hot topic in the medical community due to their ability to differentiate and take on the functions of multiple cell types. As a regenerative medicine treatment, they may be effective in treating a variety of conditions. Recently, doctors have begun to use allograft stem cell therapy in hair loss. The results have been outstanding.
In studies, the Korean Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology found that human umbilical cord blood mesenchymal stem cells (hUCB-MSCs) can promote hair growth. Similarly to PRP therapy, growth factors were a strong factor in the success of the treatment. Stem Cells LA uses mesenchymal allograft stem cells derived from umbilical cord donors.
Professional and innovative doctors use allograft stem cell-infused PRP injections directly to the scalp to promote hair growth. By combining the growth factors and regenerative properties of both treatments, allograft stem cell-infused PRP therapy uses the best of both worlds to provide an innovative and effective treatment option for hair loss.
