The Latest Advancements in PRP, Stem Cells and Hair Transplantation
Stem cell science is an extremely fast moving field of research with new breakthroughs being reported almost daily. Until recently, the main options for the treatment of Hair Loss in both Men and Women consisted of:
- Hair Transplant Surgery
- Prescription Medication
- Over-The-Counter Medication (eg Minoxidil, Rogaine, etc)
- Hair pieces/Wigs
- Hair Building fibres, such as Surethik and Toppik to camouflage thinning areas
Of these options, only Hair Transplant Surgery offers a permanent solution to restore thinning hair.
The new gold Standard in Hair Transplantation today is Bio-Cellular Enhanced HT Surgery:
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Injections have been used successfully for many years in a number of fields of medicine, including Orthopaedics (tissue repair, such as tendons and ligaments); Neurology (nerve regeneration and repair); and Cardiology (Cardiac tissue regeneration and repair).
In the United States, Dr Joseph Greco has recently developed what he terms “Adipose (Fat) Stem Cell Assisted Follicular Unit Transplantation”. Adult Fat is richly abundant in stem cells (undifferentiated self-renewing cells that become specific cells in response to Growth Factors and other chemical messengers, present in PRP, to assist in the wound healing/tissue repair process).
By applying PRP and Stem Cells to the recipient site (area of original hair loss where the hair grafts are implanted to), the goal is to assure:
- Maximal wound healing;
- Maximal growth; and
- Optimal quality and survival rate of the transplanted grafts; providing
- Highest quality natural results
Here in Australia, at Newin Institute, we have been peforming PRP and Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Restoration and inclusion in Hair Transplantation since mid-2012.
We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of the latest techniques and adhering to our strict in-theatre quality-assurance processes to ensure you get the highest quality, natural results from your Hair Transplant Surgery.
At the encouragement of Dr Joe Purita (world-reknowned Orthopaedic Surgeon, specialising in PRP and Stem Cell Therapy), I was recommended and introduced to Adistem, the world-leading Biotechnology company in Stem Cell Research and Development – right here in Melbourne. With their assistance, I have refined these new and exciting techniques and I have now implemented the highest quality, light-activated PRP and Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Therapy here at Newin Institute, specifically designed for Hair Restoration.
We are currently the only Hair Transplant Clinic in Australia to offer these two ground-breaking Regenerative procedures for Hair Restoration and incorporation into Hair Transplant Surgery.
