I have seen simply tremendous and uniform results with my innovative hair stem therapy for both men and women who undergo this treatment. I have actually yet to see even a single failure minus one African-American woman who had traction alopecia, which is actually impossible to regrow hair and requires surgery, so I do not know how or why she actually had the procedure done. So what is it? I like to call it PRP 2.0. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which usually involves drawing blood out, centrifuging the blood to extract the growth factors, and then reinjecting it back into the scalp. The problem with traditional PRP, which I used to perform, is threefold. First, it hurts a lot, especially because of the anesthetic injection required to perform the procedure. Second, it really does not work that well and certainly not as consistently as I would have liked to see. Third, the trauma of performing the procedure can oftentimes lead to unpredictable hair shedding. Hair stem has eliminated these three problems and offered a successful non-surgical option to grown hair without the nuisance and problems related to PRP.

What is hair stem? Essentially what I do is I use plant-based equivalent growth factors in very high doses that are transdermally placed through the skin with no needles, no pain, and no recovery using a very expensive machine that forces these plant growth factors through the scalp. It takes 90 minutes to perform and in 3 short sessions performed once a month you should notice a significant improvement in hair growth. I have seen this equally for both men and women. It is far faster than traditional finasteride and minoxidil with no side effects. That being said, in most men, I still highly recommend the use of a biochemical blockade of finasteride and/or minoxidil because long term I am always worried about not having enough protection against the powerful male hormone drive toward hair loss. For women, it has become my main therapy to combat thinning hair.

Who is it not good for? If someone has a bald area with no hair there, like traction hair loss or so much baldness that the crown or hairline, for example, are devoid of hairs, known as slick baldness, hair stem will not work. Hair transplant would be the ideal method to restore baldness in both men and women if you are a good candidate. Hair stem is particularly good for miniaturizing or thinning hairs that require revitalization and growth. I love using it with my revolutionary Folliflo product (which you can find on Amazon and in my office), which is also all natural and plant-based. Folliflo works better to manage hair shedding but also grows hair, whereas hair stem grows more hair and offers some limited benefit in reducing shedding. The two products together are a powerhouse to correct thinning hair. During a consultation, I will counsel you on more precisely how you would benefit from this treatment.
