Everything You Need To Know About Stem Cell Hair Transplant

Hair follicles have a niche content filled with adult stem cells. It has a protrusion containing epithelial and melanocytic stem cells. These stem cells, a clearly demarcated structure beneath the hair follicles, contain hair follicle structures and sebaceous glands. The epithelial stem cells present in the protrusion can also develop into a new hair follicle in an artificial in vivo system, for example in a laboratory setting.

In stem cell hair transplantation, a system is used by isolating human adult stem cells by mechanical centrifugation of punch biopsy from human hair follicles without culture condition.

In its simplest terms, stem cell hair transplantation is an application in which a small skin sample is taken from the donor area that is not programmed to shed, enriched with stem cells and then injected into the scalp. This stem cell application, which is initially activated before hair transplantation, helps to revitalize the area where the patient has baldness problem and to make the new hair that will grow after transplantation be fuller and healthier.
Stem cell hair transplant treatment costs approximately 15,000 TL. The final cost depends on the type and degree of hair loss being treated, and the city and location of the clinic also affect prices.



After the patient's hair is shaved, the operation begins with the administration of local anesthesia and a punch biopsy, usually above the ear. A punch biopsy is performed using an instrument with a circular blade inside that is rotated through the skin to remove a cylindrical tissue sample. This hairy tissue is sent to the laboratory and enriched with stem cells. At this stage, the stem cells are separated from the tissue in a special machine called a centrifuge. It is then injected into the scalp in areas of hair loss. Immediately after, hair transplantation is started with the classical FUE method.
Some research has found that stem cell hair transplantation can be effective in treating different hair loss conditions, including:

  • Male androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness)
  • Androgenetic alopecia (female pattern baldness)
  • Cicatricial alopecia (burned or scar tissue cases where hair follicles are destroyed)
Some pain can be expected after stem cell hair transplantation. This will subside in a few days. No other effort is required during the recovery period, but excessive exercise should be avoided for a week. Some scarring can be expected at the site where the biopsy was taken.
There is little information about the possible side effects of stem cell hair transplants. As with any medical procedure, there is always a risk of bleeding or infection at the injection site. Scarring is also possible.

While complications from a punch biopsy are rare, there is a small risk of damage to the nerves or arteries below the area.
Research on the success rate of stem cell hair transplantation is very promising. According to the results of the Italian study, a 29% increase in hair density was noted after 23 weeks of treatment.

Clinics that currently offer stem cell hair treatments that are not approved by the FDA do not make any guarantees about results or success rates.
