Is your hair falling out in clumps and clogging up the shower drain? Having you been seeing way too much of your scalp lately? You’re not alone. Approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair by the age of 50, and up to two-thirds of women experience hair loss after menopause.
With age, genetics, stress, hormones, and environmental toxins working against you, you need a hair restoration treatment powerful enough to disrupt any type of hair loss without the side effects of pharmaceuticals or the risks and costs of surgery. You need stem cell therapy.
The advantages of stem cells are so abundant, that Dr. Williams specializes in delivering both umbilical cord and adipose stem cell therapy for hair restoration.
Why are stem cells important? Sit down with Dr. Williams and he’ll share two decades of research and practical wisdom about the science and art of restoring a thick, shiny head of hair – naturally.
We all experience some temporary telogen effluvium – hair loss at the root that grows back. But other types of hair loss are not so temporary:
To a large extent, your genes and your age determine whether or not you experience hair loss, but these factors also come into play:
First, Dr. Williams will analyze your age, medical history, environment, and lifestyle to determine which type of cells he should use for your treatment.
He may decide you’re a good candidate for umbilical cord cells, which are donated by screened mothers after they give birth. Umbilical cord blood has high amounts of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and hematopoietic stem cells. Both are pluripotent – they can become any type of cell in your body – as well as immunogenic, so they’re unlikely to be rejected.
He may decide to extract a sample of your adipose (fat) using liposuction, then spin it in a centrifuge to isolate the stem cells and cytokines. Extracting your aging cells may be painful and done more than once.
When Dr. Williams strategically injects stem cells into your scalp, they release unique proteins called growth factors and cytokines which respond to distress signals sent out by your damaged hair follicle cells.
These growth factors stimulate your dormant cells to repair themselves, opening up blood vessels and creating new ones to increase blood flow to your scalp.
At your first appointment, Dr. Williams will discuss your medical history and treatment goals to determine whether you’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy.
If you are, he’ll ask you to get plenty of sleep, avoid caffeine and alcohol, and eat a healthy diet before your procedure to keep your immune system strong. The stem cell injection is a relatively painless procedure with little down-time.
Results of your therapy may take a few weeks or months, and will vary depending on your age, general health, lifestyle, environment, diet, and aftercare.
