DERMAROLLER

Dermaroller & Stem Cells

Demaroller also known as Needle Mesotherapy, the rollingover of microneedle points multiply across the surface of of the Dermaroller massages the scalp and induces better blood flow to the head. This results in conveyance of nutrients to hair follicles. It’s also used in conjuction with Serum solutions/ PRP, as it preconditions the skin for better reception of medicated solution. It helps by reducing/ stabilizing Hair Loss, promoting hair growth. At least 10 sessions are advisable at weekly intervals.

Indications:

  • For Male and Female Pattern Baldness, Telogen Effluvium
  • For Hair Thinning/ Hair Fall

Disadvantages:

  • Micro needle punctures. Bleeding.
  • Painful

Advantages:

  • Economical
  • Easy to use

Dermaroller / Stem cells

STEM CELL CLONING

Stem cell cloning is not a new idea. Since 1944 it has been known that existing hair follicles have the ability to grow new hair when implanted elsewhere.

(Follicular multiplication, stem cell hair transplant or stem cell hair re-growth are more accurate terms).

Follicle Hair Transplant Therapy

Follicle hair transplant therapy is still in a stage of research and testing, and so is not yet available as an alternative to conventional hair transplants.

However, this treatment (which is also known as follicular cell implantation) will involve the following procedure – A scalp biopsy is first taken to obtain a few healthy hair follicles. (This uses a local anesthetic and takes about 30 minutes).

The extracted follicles are then dissected to obtain the papilla (see diagram), each of which contains between 200 and 400 dermal papilla cells (DPC’s).

These cells are then incubated in cultures to produce hundreds of thousands of new papilla cells. This process takes about 8 weeks.

The DPC’s are then implanted (injected) into a bald area of the scalp and release cytokines (chemical signals) that tell the skin to start producing new hair follicles.

Problems with stem cell cloning and follicle hair transplant therapy

  • The culturing technique must preserve the stem cell’s ability to reproduce hair, and ensure that a significant number of DPC’s can be grown within that culture.
  • Any hair produced must be of an acceptable standard to the client (i.e., thick, strong, healthy hair growth).
  • The implantation method must guarantee that thousands of implantations per client will produce acceptable and standardized hair growth for the client.
  • Given that the process requires the transplantation of perhaps thousands of cells, and involves rapid cell division, it could potentially cause cancer.
  • The procedure will be very expensive – the price will almost certainly be comparable with today’s conventional treatments.
  • Normal hair growth has an even density (distribution) throughout the scalp. But, transplanted cells can lump together and then cause hair growth to be patchy.
  • Regular hair growth is directional (normally it’s in a clockwise direction around the vertex). But the hair grown from implanted cells could be at any angle. This, of course, would give a very shabby looking result that’s unacceptable to the patient.
