Hair loss can be frustrating and it can affect your overall sense of well-being. However, thanks to recent advances in regenerative medicine an innovative, new solution may help. A treatment option using amniotic tissue has proven effective for those who are in the early stages of hair loss or are ineligible for a hair transplant.
What is amniotic tissue?
A fetus in the womb is surrounded by something called amniotic fluid or tissue. It is a liquid that contains stem cells and protects the growing fetus.
How is amniotic fluid collected?
Expectant mothers sign many consent forms in preparation for labor and delivery. One of the forms is consent to donate bodily fluids and tissues, like amniotic fluid, that would otherwise be discarded. A small amount of amniotic fluid is collected from tissue recovered from pre-screened healthy, living donors during cesarean childbirth.
How does amniotic tissue repair hair follicles?
Amniotic tissue has become a major component of hair loss treatments in recent years due to its strong ability to help with hair regrowth. More specifically, the stem cells found in amniotic fluid. Stem cells can develop into many different types of cells in the body, including hair follicle cells.
What happens during the hair treatment?
The non-surgical treatment takes approximately one hour and uses your own blood as the foundation. First, a sample of blood is taken from your arm and is centrifuged to separate the red blood cells and platelets. These platelets (which also contain growth compounds) are then mixed with stem cell-rich amniotic tissue. This plasma-like substance is then injected into the patient’s top layer of the scalp.
This procedure works by slowing down hair loss then, after shedding is reduced, the hair regrowth begins. While experts say hair regrowth from amniotic tissue treatments takes about a year, some people notice results in as little as eight weeks.
There are a lot of ways to treat hair loss medically, however, using amniotic tissues for hair loss treatment may be the most ideal treatment option for you.
