Hair Loss Q & A

What causes hair loss?

Many conditions and factors contribute to hair loss. For example, you may have a hereditary hair disorder such as androgenic alopecia, which is often referred to as male- or female-pattern baldness. You may also have alopecia areata, a condition that causes sudden patches of hair loss that can lead to baldness. 

However, most hair loss is due to involutional alopecia. Your hair grows in cycles of growth and rest. Involutional alopecia occurs when more and more of your hair follicles enter the resting phase, resulting in reduced hair growth. It also makes your remaining hair brittle and prone to damage and breaking, which makes your hair look thin and dry. 

What is the treatment for hair loss?

At Better Life Stem Cell Center, Dr. Valpiani uses hair transplants, stem cell therapy, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to improve your hair roots and promote fast hair growth, ultimately thickening your hair and preventing future hair loss. 

Stem cell therapy and PRP injections activate the cells in your hair follicles to stimulate hair growth. Dr. Valpiani creates stem cell and PRP serums from your own cells. He may draw blood for PRP or remove a few ounces of fat from your abdomen to extract your stem cells. 

Better Life Stem Cell Center uses a microneedling procedure to introduce the regenerative medicine treatment into your scalp. In addition to delivering powerful regenerative solutions to your hair follicles, the microneedling process stimulates your body’s natural healing response, flooding your scalp with nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to support cell growth.

What should I expect during my hair-loss treatments?

Dr. Valpiani provides hair-loss treatments on an outpatient basis at Better Life Stem Cell Center. Your appointment may take up to three hours if he needs to take a sample of fat to extract your stem cells. 

When your regenerative serum is ready, Dr. Valpiani provides local anesthesia and sedation to keep you comfortable and relaxed while he microneedles your scalp to inject the stem cells or PRP serum. 

As a result, hair-loss treatments are relatively painless, and while you may need a friend or family member to drive you home from your appointment, you won’t need to take time off to recover. 

Your scalp usually heals within five to seven days, and you should notice that your hair is thicker and fuller within nine months.
