Thinning hair affects men and women of all backgrounds, ages, and stages of life. Whether caused by genetics, medical conditions, or illness, the blow to your confidence a thinning or receding hairline causes is not something you have to live with. Stem cell therapy is showing remarkable promise as a non-surgical restorative treatment for hair loss. The experts at Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics have all the information you need to learn more and get started.
The Science Behind Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Restoration
The undifferentiated pluripotent stem cells we use at Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics are derived from the amniotic extract. As such, they are “blank” cells without DNA and copy the surrounding cells. Stem cells are capable of connecting with nearly any system within the body, creating new tissues. When injected into the scalp, these cells replicate into the necessary tissues and follicles responsible for human hair growth. Because these cells continue to divide and reproduce, hair restoration stem cell therapy is a long-term solution. As long as there are hair follicles to replicate, new hair growth is possible.
Hair needs several factors to grow:
- Protein for the hair strand
- Blood to bring oxygen and nutrients to the follicle
- Oil for hydration and protection from breakage
- Growth factors to stimulate continued growth
- Viable follicles

If any of these ingredients is missing, hair growth is stymied and eventually stops. When the scalp stops receiving signals, it can’t give hair follicles what they need for continued growth. The follicles shrink and go dormant, eventually shedding entirely. Medical conditions and hormonal changes can trigger these gaps in signal to the scalp. Because we’re born with all the follicles we’ll have when they die, they aren’t replaced.
Hair transplantation and chemical stimulants like Rogaine have had some success in the past, but they come with risks and don’t always look natural. Stem cell therapy helps the body repair itself in a way it wouldn’t otherwise be capable of. By replacing dead or shed hair follicles with living ones that are receptive to receiving all the growth factor ingredients, we can now restart the growth process and thicken thinning or receding hair.
The Procedure to Restore Hair with Stem Cells
We use properly harvested, frozen stem cells in our hair restoration process. When injected into your scalp, the stem cells replicate your existing hair follicles and the growth factors within them promote hair growth in areas of thinning and loss. While relatively painless thanks to topical anesthesia, you may experience discomfort after the treatments. Talk to your doctor about potential side effects and expected results. While there’s not yet a lot of information on outcomes, initial results are promising. Because stem cells keep dividing to become the cells responsible for hair growth, the chance of losing more hair drops in the future. Final results will depend on your individual healing processes.
Hair loss doesn’t have to be a permanent cross to bear. At Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics, we understand how important appearance is to one’s self-confidence. Stem cell therapy is an exciting, yet complex treatment option to regrow hair, and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have and schedule your consultation to begin.
