Maryland area patients ask, can hair growth be stimulated using stem cells?

Hair Growth be Stimulated At Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery

The Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, offers a variety of treatment solutions for hair thinning and loss. Many are unaware of the fact that hair growth can be stimulated using stem cells. Annapolis, Maryland area dermatologist, Dr. Cheryl Burgess, encourages patients to ask about stem cell treatment for hair growth.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are derived from the blood cells of the human body and are rich in growth factors. When injecting these stem cells into the scalp, patients will experience improved hair growth and thickening the hair, keeping it from appearing thin.

How are stem cells harvested?

Dr. Cheryl Burgess harvests stem cells from patients through a blood draw, and then the stem cells are removed using a centrifuge. This reduces down to platelet rich plasma. The isolated stem cells are then reintroduced into the body through the scalp.

Is stem cell therapy right for me?

It is essential that a Board-certified dermatologist evaluates each patient individually to provide custom treatment options. There is no “one size fits all” solution for hair loss patients. During an initial consultation appointment with Dr. Burgess, patients will learn about all their options and then make an educated decision on how to move forward with services. For many of our patients, stem cell therapy may be extremely beneficial. Other options for hair growth include:

  • PRP
  • Laser light therapy
  • Minoxidil
