Stem Cell Treatment / Hair
Your hair rejuvenates and strengthens using your own cells.
Who is it for?
Stem cell treatment on hair aims to eliminate fragility and prevent hair loss. It can be applied on anyone who wants to have healthy, problem-free hair.
How is it done?
Treatment takes place in a clinic and is carried out by an expert team who will apply local anaesthetic creams. The patient returns to daily life right after the procedure.
How long does it take?
It takes 10 minutes to derivate sufficient amount of fat for the procedure from the patient, another 40 to 60 minutes for these fat blocks to be stem cell enriched and 10 minutes to be applied to the scalp. Basically, the procedure takes an hour to an hour and a half.
Should it be repeated and in what frequency?
One application of stem cell treatment on hair should be enough. It is not a procedure to be repeated within short periods of time.
When do we see the results?
The effects will be obvious after one month. The positive effects continue as the stem cells renew themselves.
What creates hair loss?
Hair can weaken and become frail as a result of genetic factors as well as age, stressful conditions and affects of cosmetic products. Hair loss in men usually starts on temporal sides and on the top area while in women, after a certain age, the division lines of the hair widens and hair gets visibly frail. Main conditions that trigger hair loss can be physical and emotional stress, health problems like anaemia, polycystic ovary syndrome, hypothyroid, also vitamin B and protein deficiencies, sudden weight loss and drug usage. Stem cell treatment is one of the most effective treatments to prevent hair loss, strengthen the hair and to make it look more vibrant. It is not an alternative to hair transplant operations.

First, a certain amount of fat is harvested from a section of the patient’s body. The fat is then processed for its cells to be separated. Following this procedure; a local anaesthetic cream is applied on scalp and the stem cells are injected via special procedure.
What are the effects of the treatment following the procedure?
After the procedure, the weakness of the hair reduces; the hair becomes stronger and more vibrant. The hair loss decreases relatively after the treatment.
Who are the ideal candidates for this procedure?
Anybody who is losing hair or shows symptoms of weakening or dilution in their hair or whose hair is dull or lifeless. It is quite common to recommend this procedure to people who have not lost their hair but who simply wish to have healthier hair.
What are the benefits of stem cell treatment on hair?
