Hair Follicle Stem Cell Banking: A Step into the Future of Hair Restoration
Hair Follicle Stem Cell Banking represents a remarkable advancement in the world of hair restoration, personalized medicine, and regenerative health. This innovative procedure is simple, quick, and pain-free, offering a new horizon in treating hair loss and other health conditions. Banking your own hair follicles is now a reality at Bauman Medical.
What is Hair Follicle Stem Cell Banking?
Hair follicle stem cell banking is a process where we collect stem cells from your hair follicles. These cells are then stored and can potentially be used for future medical treatments.
The Process: Simple and Painless
- Collection: In a non-invasive procedure, about 50 hairs are gently plucked from the scalp. This is done with utmost care to ensure that the biological material essential for stem cell banking, including the outer root sheath and other critical layers of the hair follicle, are intact.
- Packaging and Transport: Each hair is then carefully packaged in a special solution. This keeps the cells viable and is placed in a high-tech box that maintains a cool temperature, ensuring the cells remain in optimal condition during transport to the tissue bank.
- Duration and Comfort: The entire process takes just a few minutes and is completely painless, making it an easy choice for anyone considering advanced hair loss treatment options.
Benefits of Hair Follicle Stem Cell Banking
- Innovative Hair Loss Treatment: This method opens up new avenues for treating hair loss, potentially allowing for hair regeneration using your own cells.
- Personalized Medicine: Since the cells are harvested from your own body, any future treatments using these cells will be highly personalized, reducing the risk of rejection.
- Regenerative Medicine Potential: These stem cells could be used in the broader field of regenerative medicine, offering potential treatments for various health conditions.
- Holistic Health Approach: By banking your hair follicle stem cells, you’re investing in a holistic approach to your health and future well-being.
What Can We Do With Banked Follicles Today?
- Cell Expansion – cell expansion of the banked follicle cells allows for the creation of autologous (your own personalized) exosome therapy of powerful growth factors and other signaling molecules.
- Topical Treatments – These treatments can then be applied topically on your scalp for improved hair growth and healing.
- Eventually, after clinical trials are completed, this therapy may be eventually approved for injection into the scalp for hair growth.
We’re on the cusp of a new era in medical treatments. The possibilities of using these banked stem cells in the future, not only for hair restoration but for a range of regenerative medicine applications, are vast and exciting. In the future, we may be able to use these banked cells for Cell Therapies that are currently being researched, such as for tissue and organ regeneration, repair, and replacement–all throughout the body–as well as for Hair Follicle Multiplication (aka “Hair Cloning”). When these applications become available to help improve lifespan and healthspan, you will wish you had banked your hair follicles sooner!
