The following information is patient education information only.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy is the process of isolating adult stem cells from abdominal fat and reintroducing them into the body where they can do the most good. The process begins with extracting a few ounces of fat from the patient in a “mini” liposuction procedure.

Once isolated, the stem cells are then re-introduced to the body for more localized treatments. Some offices may treat patients with local treatments in the knee, shoulder and other joints.

Stem cells can also be applied to the face, neck and scalp using a micro-needle system to give you a more healthy and youthful look.

The treatments are outpatient procedures conducted in a sterile environment in your doctor’s office utilizing state-of-the-art equipment. Under sedation and local anesthesia, the process is relatively painless and safe with minimal downtime.

How Can Stem Cell Therapy Help you?

  1. Improve Hair Strength
  2. Protect Hair Follicle Health
  3. Accelerate Hair Regrowth

What happens after you are done isolating the stem cells?

Once your stem cells have been isolated, your physician will reintroduce them into your body with an intravenous mix of saline and stem cells. Dr. Williams will inject stem cells directly into the areas of concern.

What kind of ailments can stem cell therapy help?

Stem cell therapy may improve a variety of conditions. Current use of stem cell therapy have shown significant improvement in:

  • Blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Joint pain
  • Macular degeneration

Stem cell therapy patients have also reported higher energy levels, better sleep and overall improved quality of life. No treatment can be guaranteed, and outcomes will vary from patient to patient.

How long does it take to see improvement?

Individual ailments vary and the outcome of stem cell therapy depends on your body’s unique healing process. For hair restoration patients, it may take several months to see any results. Stem cell therapy for hair loss is very new and no or little published literature exists confirming its efficacy. No one can guarantee the outcome for this or any stem cell treatment. Each patient is different and results will vary.

FAQ

Where do stem cells come from?

There are primarily three types of stem cells used for treatments: embryonic, umbilical, and adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are derived from embryos. Embryonic stem cell therapy is burdened with ethical and political issues. We do NOT use embryonic stem cells. Umbilical therapy is difficult and labor intensive.

At OC Hair Restoration, we only use liposuction derived adult stem cells that are derived from the patient’s fat cells. Adult stem cells exist throughout the body and are most abundant (and accessible) in the abdominal fat.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are unspecialized cells that maintain and repair tissues. Stem cells are unique in that they have the potential to develop into many different types of cells. In tissue and hair regeneration, stem cells induce changes, behavior, or differentiation of adjacent cells by Paracrine signaling. Stem cells are injected into the scalp and are believed to exert a paracrine effect by inducing hair cells to become more active.

Is the stem cell isolation procedure FDA approved?

Currently all procedures utilizing stem cells to treat specific ailments are considered investigational. However there are more than 3500 clinical studies being conducted for specific applications and all have demonstrated significant promise in ailments that have otherwise been unresponsive to conventional treatments. The procedures are carried out utilizing FDA cleared and registered equipment and all stem cell therapies fall within the FDA regulations for transferring tissue.
