Scientific surveys show that on an average 4 out of 10 people suffer from partial or full baldness. If you are one of them, then you might be happy to hear the good news, that there has been some groundbreaking baldness cure research going on in the recent past. Out of these, one of the most trusted and much discussed cure for baldness nowadays is stem cell therapy.

What Is Stem Cell?

A stem cell is an organic cell which has the power to renew itself. As a person grows up the stem cells keep diving to help the body develop. However, after a certain age the process reverses. This reversal of process leads to the signs of ageing such as hair loss etc. This is the reason dermatologists are using stem cells as cure for baldness.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy is the latest in the world of baldness cure research. With the passage of time or due to illnesses, the hair cells present in the scalp die. This means that the concerned areas stop producing new hair, thus leading to baldness. In stem cell therapy, endeavor is made to renew the follicular cells of these areas. This is done by injecting lab-cultivated stem cells. Once these stem cells are introduced to the hairless areas, these cells multiply and over time restore the normal hair growth.

Other Cures For Baldness

However, you can also opt for other baldness cures such as hair weaving, hair transplant, and minoxidil (Rogaine) treatment. Weaving is a cheap cure for baldness. But, weaved hair lacks the luster of real hair and can be quite a hassle as far as maintenance is concerned. Hair transplant is a much better option. But for those who are scared of the surgical knife hair transplant can be a terrible experience.

Minoxidil treatment is a very popular cure for baldness. In this treatment, Minoxidilic (which is a medical lotion) is locally applied to the scalp. In majority of the cases, the process of hair loss is reversed. However, results are not guaranteed. And, it might take up to a year for you to notice any visible signs of improvement.

Advantages Of Stem Cell Therapy

In contrast, the success rate of stem cell therapy is higher, and you will see the difference is just a few months. Added to that, this is a non-surgery therapy, which is a great relief to all you people scared of blood. Most dermatologists believe that the success of stem cell therapy is owing to its naturalness. In this therapy, the ageing process is reversed as compared to the other methods, such as transplant, where hair is artificially placed.

Conclusion

There are quite a few options when it comes to baldness cures, but the most effective and safe option so far seems to be stem cell therapy. It might be a little costly, but you need to consider that it is the most reliable option available to date.
