What is stem cell hair treatment?
The adipose stem cell hair treatment is a non-surgical hair restoration procedure used to reverse the effects of hair loss in men and women. The treatment stimulates and regenerates dormant / damaged hair follicles, allowing for natural hair regrowth and follicle rejuvenation.
Stem Cell Hair Therapy Procedure
Stem cell therapy for hair loss is a minimally invasive and virtually painless hair restoration procedure that lasts approximately an hour. Stem cells are extracted from the patient’s adipose tissue and injected back into the scalp to promote new hair growth.
Stem Cell Hair Regrowth Cost
The average cost of stem cell hair regrowth at our center is $3,900. This price is dependent on which stage of hair loss the patient is in. Other hair transplant centers across the United States will usually charge anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000.
Stem Cell Hair Treatment Results
Stem cell therapy can begin promoting natural hair growth in as little as 2 to 3 months, with substantial growth throughout the course of a year. On average, patients can begin to see the most noticeable results 6 months after the stem cell hair treatment.
STEM CELL HAIR RESTORATION
Stem Cell Therapy as a Treatment for Hair Loss
Adipose-Derived Stem Cells have shown to be an effective regenerative treatment for hair loss. Stem Cell Hair Therapy is a non-surgical, therapeutic hair restoration procedure that offers a more natural alternative to surgical hair transplants. Tampa Bay Hair Restoration uses adipose-derived stem cells to stimulate follicular hair growth and reverse the effects of hair loss.
Dr. Michael Markou is a board-certified Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) and the leading regenerative surgeon at Tampa Bay Hair Restoration. As an internationally renowned leader in cell regeneration, Dr. Markou was the first physician in Florida to utilize Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cells for hair regrowth. In addition to hair restoration, Dr. Markou also uses Stem Cell Therapy to treat orthopedic injuries, sports injuries, osteoarthritis, and chronic pain at his medical center in Clearwater and Tarpon Springs, Florida.
Advantages of using stem cells in hair restoration:
It’s important to note that hair loss occurs differently in each person, so individual results vary. Stem Cell Hair Restoration offers a variety of advantages to the average hereditary hair loss patient, including:
- Non-surgical hair loss treatment
- Minimally invasive and virtually painless procedure
- Can promote natural hair regrowth in a variety of scalp conditions, including alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia
- Enhances tissue/cell healing & repair
- Helps stimulate weaker & dormant hair follicles
- Can even make existing hair follicles stronger & healthier
- Stabilizes the hair loss cycle
- Has the ability to regenerate new hair follicles
- No sedation, suturing, or recovery time required
- Often used in combination with PRP therapy to influence greater results
What Are Stem Cells?
The primary purpose of a stem cell is to help repair and replace tissues within the body. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to divide (multiply) into many different cell types.
When the cells divide, they’re given the option to continue on as a stem cell or become a specialized cell, such as a red or white blood cell. This is dependent on the adjacent tissues that are in need of repairing. Since these cells are ultimately healers, they pick up where other cells and tissues are lacking.
Adipose Stem Cells (ASC)
The two main types of stem cells are embryonic stem cells and somatic stem cells. The embryonic stem cells are derived from embryos, while the somatic stem cells (aka adult stem cells) are derived from adult fat tissue. The adult stem cells are found in bone marrow and fat cells, which is also known as adipose tissue.
Here at Tampa Bay Hair Restoration, we only use adipose-derived stem cells for our Stem Cell Hair Treatments. The adipose tissue is easily extracted from the patient’s own body, and can offer a number of remarkable benefits when used as a treatment for hair loss.
Stem Cell Hair Treatment
The Adipose Stem Cell Hair Treatment is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure that lasts approximately an hour. The hair treatment stimulates and regenerates dormant / damaged hair follicles, allowing for natural hair regrowth and follicle rejuvenation. Stem cells can even protect thinning hair from the further effects of DHT – a major influencer of male and female pattern baldness.
Similar to PRP Hair Restoration, Stem Cell Hair Therapy also extracts rejuvenating cells that have a positive influence on the healing process. However, these growth factors are extracted from the patient’s fat tissue instead of their blood plasma. Once the adipose tissue has been extracted, the desired stem cells will need to be separated from the fat cells and concentrated using a centrifuge system. These stem cells will be rich in mesenchymal cells and growth factors to enhance cellular healing and tissue repair. The stem cells will then be reintroduced back into the patient’s recipient site using a very thin syringe. The recipient site is the area that has been affected by hair loss or pattern baldness.
Stem Cell Injections
Stem Cell Hair Restoration is very safe due to the fact that the only tissues used in the procedure come directly from the patient’s own cells. This autologous procedure eliminates the potential of negative side effects commonly associated with transplantations such as rejection, diseases, blood transfusions or immunogenic reactions.
Stem cell injections for hair loss may leave behind a very tiny mark where injections were made, but will be completely healed and undetectable within the next 1 to 5 days. The minimally invasive technique used in Stem Cell Hair Treatment does not require stitches or suturing, which completely removes the potential of any scars caused from the procedure. In fact, Dr. Markou uses stem cell injections during and after more invasive hair transplant procedures to speed up the healing process and assist with any scarring concerns.
Stem Cell Hair Growth Results
Using adipose stem cells as a treatment for hair loss has shown prominent hair regrowth results in both men and women. It’s highly recommended for those who are too young for hair transplant surgery and for those within the earlier stages of the hair loss cycle.
Stem Cell Hair Treatment can begin promoting natural hair growth in as little as two to three months. New hair growth can continue over the course of a year, with the most noticeable results usually being seen six months after treatment has been administered. The new hair growth can provide patients with natural, thicker, and fuller results. PRP and Stem Cell Hair Treatment can often be used together to gain even further hair growth results.

Am I a good candidate for stem cell hair restoration?
Stem cell hair treatment is available to both men and women. It’s highly recommended for those too young for hair transplant surgery or those within early stages of hair loss. The procedure is not recommended for those who have completely lost their hair.
How much does stem cell hair treatment cost?
The average cost of stem cell hair treatment can cost anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000 in the U.S. At our center, the average cost is about $3,900. This price is dependent on which stage of hair loss the patient is in and determined during the initial consultation.
What’s the difference between stem cell treatment & a hair transplant?
A hair transplant is a surgical technique that physically transplants existing hair to the area of hair loss, while stem cell hair restoration is a non-surgical regenerative treatment that injects adipose stem cells into the scalp.
How long does the stem cell hair procedure take?
The stem cell hair treatment procedure can last up to one hour depending on which stage of hair loss the patient is in. Patients are seated comfortably throughout the in-office procedure, and are welcome to read or watch TV to pass time.
Are there any side effects to stem cell hair treatment?
Stem cell hair treatment is very safe due to the fact that the patient’s own tissues are being used as the donor. This eliminates the potential of negative side effects commonly associated with transplants such as rejection, diseases, or reactions.
Do stem cell injections for hair loss hurt?
Stem cell injections for hair loss are minimally invasive and virtually painless. Local anesthesia can also be used to ensure no discomfort. Some patients note initial discomfort in the first injection, but no discomfort for the rest of the hair treatment.
Does stem cell hair treatment leave a scar?
Due to the minimally invasive nature of the treatment, stem cell therapy for hair loss does not require any suturing or stitches. The injections may leave a very small “punch” mark that will completely vanish within the next 1 to 5 days.
When will new hair growth begin after stem cell hair therapy?
Since hair loss occurs differently in each individual, stem cell hair regrowth results can vary from patient to patient. On average, new hair growth is seen as early as 2 to 3 months after the stem cell hair treatment has been administered.
