The Future Is Here – Stem Cell Treatment for Hair Loss
The topic of hair loss has become a hot discussion topic as of recently. Hair loss can be hereditary or be caused by a medical condition or medications. Hair loss can affect anyone, but it is more common among men. Hair loss usually occurs for the majority of people as they age. Some medical treatments and conditions might lead to hair loss include, radiation treatment or chemotherapy treatment as well as medical conditions such as alopecia, hormonal imbalance, and stress.
Treating Hair Loss
Currently, there are numerous treatment options available for treating and preventing hair loss. However, the effectiveness of these hair loss treatment options leaves much to be desired, leading scientists to continue looking for better and permanent ways to treat hair loss once and for all. One of the ways that has recently become a hot topic of discussion is stem cells. According to scientists, they propose to use stem cells to reverse all the effects of hair loss. And with recent research, scientists have found a way to do just that. This way they can simply activate the stem cells in the hair follicle to make hair grow and if the cells are damaged or weak they can simply be replaced.
What Does This Mean for The Future of Hair Loss Treatment?
Well in simple terms stem cells can mean the end of any problem related to hair loss and provide a stable and easy way to permanently treat it.
The development of stem cell treatment will likely take two main approaches:
First, there is the possibility of having stem cell therapy to correct baldness and revitalize the cells in the hair follicle.
Second treatment possibility will likely be in the form of stem cell drugs. These drugs would be designed in such a way that instantly stimulates the stem cells in your hair follicle making them more active leading to rapid hair growth.
It Sounds all Wonderful Right, but Is it Possible?
The answer to that question is yes, it is. Doctors have come a very long way when it comes to using the stem cells for treating various kinds of diseases and providing the solution to other health problems, but now the spotlight is on the treatment of hair loss. And even though the current research and study have been successful, it is very important to note that the study was conducted only on mice and it will be a little while before it can be fully tested and optimized to work on humans.
Regardless, it shows promise but we are definitely not there yet. So we need to wait for a permanent solution with a possible hope.
