For years, hair loss was thought to be mostly a men’s problem, yet 40% of all hair loss patients are women. For virtually all patients, hair loss takes a toll on their self-esteem and confidence, but your hair growth can be restored with stem cells and other natural treatments provided by Mark Ghalili, DO, at Regenerative Medicine LA. To learn how stem cell therapy can promote hair growth, call the office in West Hollywood, California, or book an appointment online.
Hair follicles cycle through stages of growth and rest. When the follicle enters a resting phase, the existing hair falls out. Before long, the follicle returns to a growth phase and a new hair replaces the lost hair.
Many problems can affect the hair follicle, interfere with the growth cycle, and cause hair loss. Emotional stress, medications, nutrient deficiencies, significant weight loss, and at least 30 medical conditions are known to cause hair loss. However, the most common reason for balding is androgenetic alopecia.
Androgenetic alopecia, also called male- and female-pattern baldness, is an inherited condition that makes hair follicles more sensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). As a result, DHT shortens the growth phase, which makes hairs grow shorter and thinner. Over time, they stop growing completely.
When women develop androgenetic alopecia, they experience diffuse hair thinning all over their scalp. In men, hair loss due to DHT causes distinct balding patterns. Men start losing hair at their temples (called a receding hairline) and on the top of their head. Then the hair loss progresses to include their entire scalp except for a ring of hair along the bottom of the hairline.
Stem cells have the ability to continuously self-renew and develop the specific cells your body needs to repair and regenerate. They also release a variety of chemicals that promote cellular growth and healing.
When Dr. Ghalili injects a concentrated amount of stem cells into balding areas of your scalp, the stem cells can stimulate the follicle to grow new hair.
Studies show that treatment with stem cells leads to more hair growth and an increase in hair diameter. Your new hair growth is also strong and resistant to the hair pull test used to evaluate hair loss.
