GIOSTAR Chicago, an Illinois-based regenerative technologies clinic, is introducing stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) solution as a hair thinning product for their clients. When PRP and stem cells are injected into the scalp of patients, they have been shown to increase hair count and density. Platelets and stem cells contain growth factors that stimulate blood vessels that nourish the hair follicle and trigger the growth of hair.
For nearly two decades, orthopedic doctors have used PRP and stem cells to treat people suffering from joint injuries and other painful conditions, such as osteoarthritis or rotator cuff tears. PRP therapy and stem cell therapy have shown great potential in shortening recovery time from injuries. Now the evolving therapy is showing great promise for hair restoration.
The stem cells and plasma injected during the PRP and stem cell therapy procedure work to heal your scalp fast around the hair follicles. The plasma that is platelet-rich and stem cells release growth factors and stimulate healing by increasing the number of reparative cells in the affected area of your body. Growth factors are natural substances made by the body to fight aging or other damage.
Before the PRP procedure for hair, the doctor will collect a sample from the patient, which will then be processed in our in-house laboratory to extract the plasma and stem cells. The patient’s blood contains plasma, red blood cells, and white blood cells. The PRP and stem cells are then injected locally into the patient’s scalp.
The stem cells and plasma are subjected to special treatment and the area needed on the person’s scalp is first anesthetized with anesthetic creams. Then it is injected into the scalp with the help of microneedles. Although PRP and stem cells may be applied to the hair, they may vary slightly depending on the person and maybe painful as a pinprick. The process is done on average after 30 minutes of application. As PRP solutions and stem cell therapy are noninvasive, they leave no scarring to the patients.
Although PRP and stem cells are a relatively new approach, there is some scientific evidence to suggest that they can promote hair growth. Researchers theorized that if they could extract concentrated platelets and stem cells and inject them into damaged areas of the body, they could accelerate healing. PRP and stem cells contain a range of growth factors and proteins that speed tissue repair. As some types of hair loss result from damage to hair follicles, PRP and stem cells could help regrow hair by reversing the process that occurs in androgenetic alopecia.
Patients who will undergo PRP and stem cell therapy may notice hair growth and thickness within 3 months. Repeated treatments may be necessary for most patients to get optimal hair growth.
PRP therapy and stem cell therapy harness and optimize the body’s natural healing processes without the introduction of foreign substances. The growth factors in the reinserted plasma stimulate cell growth, which in turn helps repair damaged cartilage, ligaments, and muscles. In contrast to surgery, PRP therapy and stem cell therapy are relatively smooth procedures as they do not require much downtime.
Aside from using PRP and stem cells for hair loss, GIOSTAR Chicago greatly utilizes PRP solutions and stem cell therapy for other diseases. GIOSTAR Chicago is supported by San Diego-based GIOSTAR, which provides scientific know-how to the center. GIOSTAR has the ability to help with various immunological diseases and blood-related diseases. GIOSTAR recently used stem cells to successfully treat several COVID-19 patients, receiving approval under the FDA Expanded Access for Compassionate Use Program.
GIOSTAR Chicago is made of world-class scientists and doctors in the field of stem cell science. Their aim is to develop regenerative solutions for metabolic and degenerative diseases such as hair thinning. For those interested in the PRP solution and stem cell therapy for hair thinning, they may visit GIOSTAR Chicago’s website or Facebook page to know more about their services.
GIOSTAR Chicago is the pioneer and established leader in the field of stem cell science and regenerative medicine, and is supported by San Diego-based GIOSTAR. The company’s primary aim is to develop solutions for the masses suffering from metabolic and degenerative diseases around the globe. The team members have been involved for the last 20 years in the development and utilization of stem cell-based clinical protocols related to degenerative, malignant, and non-malignant disorders. The adult stem cell technology is well developed and has been used regularly in the Institute’s clinical practice to treat many patients.
