Hi,

In stem cell transplant for hair growth, the stem cells are taken from your own fat tissue. They are then concentrated and injected into your hair follicles. These can reverse the shrinkage of hair follicles resulting into hair growth. The visible effect of stem cell hair transplant Usually starts after about 6 months and clearly visible by one year. Presently the studies have shown a visible increase in the density of hairs around 30% after about 25 weeks of stem cell hair transplantation.

In rare cases the loss of regrown hair may also occur and even complete baldness may be there months or years after the procedure of hair transplantation. However, in most cases the effect is life long and success rate of the procedure vary from center to center somewhere between 70-95%.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
