The Future of Hair Restoration: PRP + Mesenchymal (Fat) Stem Cells
This breakthrough new procedure using Adult Stem Cells with PRP has the ability to increase hair growth and decrease hair loss!
Always staying ahead of the curve, Dr. Yazdan uses the latest scientific advances in hair regenerative treatment combined with PRP for optimal results as a non-surgical treatment option for his patients.
Hair loss and hair thinning can be overwhelming and destructive to your personal life and even your career. It can have a significant impact on one’s appearance and self-esteem. Fortunately, there is now an easy and painless, yet highly effective treatment.
You may have heard of stem cells which are used to treat many diseases and conditions in the medical industry including, embryonic, umbilical and adult stem cells. Stem Cells have come a long way yet unfortunately still hold a stigma when using embryonic stem cells. However, here at Modena Institute we only use Adult Stem Cells which are derived from the patient’s own body fat cells.
For years Dr. Yazdan has pioneered cosmetic surgery techniques and treatments that has consistently produced impressive results for his patients.
What are adult stem cells and how can they help regrow hair?
A stem cell is any cell that can both replicate and differentiate. This means that a stem cell by definition, does not only multiply, it can also turn in to different types of tissues. And while there are different types of stem cells in our body, “mesenchymal” stem cells are able to form new blood vessels which aids greatly in the regeneration of hair follicles.
What is PRP and how can it help regrow my hair?
PRP also known as Platelet Rich Plasma is a product of your own blood. A centrifuge system is used to spin and produce a clear to yellow tinge solution rich in platelets, growth factors and stem cells. PRP is then combined with large quantities of your very own mesenchymal Stem Cells.
What is to be expected in a PRP + Stem Cell Therapy?
Dr. Yazdan’s unique PRP method helps patients with hair loss by increasing the hair diameter, reducing shedding and revitalizing the hair follicles. The first step to a PRP + Fat Stem Cell procedure is to draw your blood. Once your blood has been extracted, your surgeon will prepare the site for extraction of fat cells using sterile technique. Fat cells are extracted using a special cannula device under a local anesthetic which allows for the collection of an abundance of stem cells. Dr. Yazdan uses special equipment configured by himself to process and isolate stem cells as well as growth factors and healing proteins from PRP to create a unique formulation which harvest your own bodies cellular therapy to help reverse the hair loss process. The surgeon will then prepare the scalp with local anesthesia. This is a critical step as care needs to be taken not to damage the hair follicles during the injections. A small needle is used at minimum depth to reduce trauma. The final step is to inject the formulation. Special blunt needles are used in a fanning technique to deliver the PRP and stem cells to the areas of hair loss. Care is again taken to inject at the correct angle and depth to maximize the effectiveness of the procedure while reducing trauma to the patients existing hair. Once the injection is complete, the scalp is massaged, cleaned thoroughly, and the patient is sent home!
Is there any downtime?
This treatment only consists of micro-lipo to harvest adipose stem cells from a small amount of unwanted body fat and scalp injections. You are able to resume all activities on the same day you have treatment.
Is the treatment painful?
A local anesthetic is used at the site of lipo as well as the scalp. As you can see in our video, you can expect to feel little (if any) discomfort during this procedure. If needed, Dr. Yazdan can prescribe a light sedative to calm any nerves and help you relax during the treatment.
Recently there has been a wide focus on the therapeutic potential of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in cases of tendon lesions for the acute treatment injuries of tendons. PRP is also a popular treatment for many professional athletes such as baseball and football players in order to speed up the wound healing process and is becoming a very effective treatment.
