Stem Cell Hair Loss Treatment FAQs
Is stem cell hair loss treatment safe?
Stem cell hair restoration is an extremely safe procedure when conducted in a sterile medical environment, by a licensed physician, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, like ESP Medical in the greater Boston area. Because stem cell hair restoration involves the transfer of blood, it should never be attempted out-of-the-country or in a salon, spa or other non-medical facility.
Does stem cell hair loss treatment hurt?
At ESP Medical in Brockton, MA we perform stem cell hair restoration using local anesthesia for the most comfortable and relatively painless procedure possible.
Are there side effects to stem cell hair loss treatment?
Stem cell hair loss treatment is not only safe and painless, there is also minimal to no downtime and few to no known side effects. Because stem cell hair restoration is a 100% natural treatment derived from the patient’s own cells there is no possibility of an allergic reaction.
Some patients may notice tiny marks where the mini liposuction took place, but carefully following aftercare instructions will minimize the possibility of scarring. Some patients may also experience some slight soreness after the anesthetic wears off – but this is easily managed with over-the-counter medications like Tylenol, and should resolve in a few days.
When will I see the results of stem cell hair loss treatment?
Individual results of stem cell hair loss treatment depends upon each individual patient’s unique healing process, the degree of hair loss being treated, the size of the area, and even the speed with which the patient’s hair grows. However, most patients report seeing the beginning of new hair growth in just a few weeks, while some may have to wait a few months to see noticeable results.
As with any medical treatment, each hair loss patient is different and results will vary from person to person.
For whom does stem cell hair loss treatment work best?
Stem cell hair loss treatment is an ideal alternative to hair transplant surgery for patients who are not surgical candidates because of age, or medical conditions. Stem cell hair loss treatment works best on patients who are in the early phases of hair loss. Women who suffer from hair loss are also typically excellent candidates for stem cell hair restoration when they have lost hair due to aging, hormonal changes or pregnancy.
