Hair loss is a concern for many men and women in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and elsewhere. However, you have many more treatment options available today than you did a decade ago, and many of them work far better than you may expect. For example, you do not have to turn to an uncomfortable surgery that comes with a lengthy recovery period, nor do you have to use topical treatments that make your scalp itchy and do not provide much relief for you hair shedding. Today’s therapies often make use of new developments in scientific research. One of the most promising options that is making great headway in hair restoration these days is stem cell treatment.
Stem cells are very interesting, completely natural cells that are found throughout your body. They are basically the baby cells that can then turn into nearly any cell in your body. When needed for hair treatments, they are taken from autologous samples, meaning that the cells come from your own body.
Once we have collected these stem cells, we are ready to purify them and get them ready to use in your scalp. While many of the treatment methods used are still investigational and part of research studies, we have found that stem cell treatment can be quite useful in the treatment of hair loss, thinning and baldness. There are currently several thousand studies available using stem cell treatments this way.
With stem cell treatment, you do not have to undergo surgery nor do you have to have strips of skin harvested from elsewhere in your body. Instead, the stem cells are used to stimulate regrowth of hair.
As you can see, stem cell treatment for hair loss is a great option, and it could work for you! Make an appointment at New England Center For Hair Restoration to find out for sure. Contact us today to schedule a consultation at our office in North Attleboro or Westwood.
