What is stem cell treatment?
Currently used in many branches of medicine, stem cells are special, non-specialised cells in the body which have the ability to transform into all types of cells and have an almost unlimited ability to divide and renew themselves.
Treatment of baldness with their help has the task, as in the case of treatment of other types of damage and changes, to induce the regeneration process by stimulating scalp cells and hair growth. What is important, in this way the formation of new hair follicles is stimulated and dormant hair bulbs are mobilized.
The procedure itself involves drawing blood from the patient and isolating the right cells, then injecting the scalp with stem cells. Stem cells are isolated using a safe, technologically advanced method. The injection procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia.
Effectiveness of stem cell treatment
