How can I make sure that stem cell therapy for hair loss will work for me?

Hi, I recently found out about stem cell therapy for hair loss . Is it for everybody who lost hair no matter the reason? I started losing hair when I was 13. I m 44 now and I m wearing hair piece for 4 years. I m not sure there is folicles left over so many years, to invest in this therapy. How can i make sure this method of treatment will work for me? And who do you recommend to go to in LA? Thanks

Hi ,
Thanks for the details.
Stem cell therapy is useful in androgenetic alopecia, diffuse hair loss, postinflammatory hair loss etc.Its usefulness can only be determined by dermatologist after physical examination of scalp.Its usefulness decreases as the age advances.
Hope this helps.
