Our clinic has recently introduced Regenerative Therapy with Growth Factors, a treatment for hair regeneration on the basis of the world’s most advanced regenerative medicine technology.
Although thinning hair may result from androgen effects, stress, or undernutrition, the common cause is the lack of growth factors, leading to the termination of hair growth signaling. The termination of hair growth signaling is associated with the termination of hair growth and regeneration and the further thinning of the hair. For the treatment of thinning hair, growth factors should be added to return impaired growth signaling to normal. The solution is Regenerative Therapy with Growth Factors(japanese page).
Regenerative Therapy with Growth Factors(japanese page) involves the penetration of drugs into the scalp; the drugs include the growth factors used exclusively at medical institutions. The growth factor cocktail (drug) was developed by Dr. Greg Maguire, who is a former professor studying regenerative medicine at the University of California, San Diego, and is still a leader in the field of regenerative medicine and tissue regeneration. The cocktail contains a larger number of stem cell-derived growth factors at higher concentrations than conventional injections. The therapy aims to regenerate hair by making up for a shortage of growth factors, which is responsible for thinning hair.
Regenerative Therapy with Growth Factors(japanese page) begins with the application of a liquid growth factor cocktail on scalp sites with thinning hair. Then, a medical stamp (Derma Stamp) with ultrafine stainless steel needles is lightly pressed onto the scalp. These needles form a large number of ultrafine pores on the scalp and allow the growth factor cocktail to penetrate into the hair roots. Before the start of Derma Stamp therapy, topical anesthesia on the scalp or block anesthesia is administered, and thus patients rarely experience pain during therapy.
