Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 05, 2016
Dr. Benjamin Stong of Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC in Atlanta, Georgia proudly offers the latest in non-surgical hair loss treatment. Dr. Stong is double board certified and the only facial plastic surgeon in Atlanta to offer Micro-droplet Fat Stem Cell Injections for the treatment of hair loss. Non-surgical therapies such as stem cells can be used to provide stabilization to hair transplant results or they can be chosen as a standalone procedure for patients who want to avoid surgery.
While stem cells have been widely used in other fields of medicine for their ability to aid in wound healing and tissue repair, Dr. Stong is one of few doctors in the country to offer stem cells in hair loss treatment. Stem cells are the body’s natural regenerative cells. They are tiny, unspecialized cells that can divide and differentiate into various tissues. All hair follicles contain stem cells. However, in balding individuals, these stem cells are damaged and inactivated. Recent evidence suggests that by injecting stem cells obtained from a patient’s adipose tissue (fat), the hair follicle can be stimulated to enter into an active growth phase once again.
During a micro-droplet fat stem cell injection, stem cells are harvested from the patient’s abdominal fat through a mini-liposuction procedure. The adult stem cells are then directly injected into the balding areas of the scalp. Here, the adult stem cells release powerful mediators that stimulate hair growth where hair follicles were previously dormant. In addition, the fat injections to the scalp may also provide a platform for an improved overall blood supply to the hair follicles, which further encourages hair follicle growth. There are three accessible sources of adult stem cells in the body, including blood, fat, and bone marrow. Dr. Stong uniquely offers both fat stem cells and bone marrow stem cells for hair loss treatment at his Atlanta hair transplant clinic.
“Hair loss can lower self-confidence and jeopardize career advancement. By integrating the power of regenerative medicine into hair restoration, I can give patients a natural, safe and effective solution,“ says Dr. Stong.
Fat stem cell injections can be used as a standalone procedure or as an adjuvant to hair transplant surgery to enhance hair growth results. Dr. Stong also routinely combines fat stem cell injection with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which adds powerful platelets and growth factors from a patient’s own blood to further promote hair growth and hair density.
