How Can Stem Cell Injections Affect Hair Growth?

If you have begun losing hair, noticed a receding hairline, or had sluggish hair growth, chances are you have tried several options to restore your hair. While there are a few promising options for people with hair loss-related issues, stem cell therapy is an option that may surprise you.

Stem cell injections have shown several positive benefits when it comes to hair loss. This handy guide closely examines this exciting medical treatment and how it works.

What is stem cell therapy, and how does it work to aid hair growth?

Stem cell therapy is a type of medical treatment that uses the body’s cells to allow it to repair itself. Many different cells are in the body, each with a specific role and purpose. Brain cells form our brain; blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body.

Liver cells help create the structure of the liver, which helps remove damaging toxins from the body.

Stem cells are unique because they are blank and do not yet have a specific duty within the body. Such versatility allows doctors to program or instruct them on what to do. In this way, the doctor can supplement lacking parts of the body or use the stem cells to stimulate the body’s automatic response.

Stem cell hair treatment uses stem cells to encourage new hair growth by providing new cells. The stem cells then propagate or multiply inside the body, stimulating natural hair growth. Studies show that stem cells for hair loss are may even produce results for patients with alopecia.1 This disorder can cause a person to lose all their hair over their entire body.

Stem cells can come from various places, but the most common is adipose tissue (subcutaneous fat), typically found in the bone marrow. By harvesting these cells from a healthy patient, doctors can repurpose them for other uses.

Are there side effects to stem cell injections?

As with any medical treatment, stem cell therapy for hair loss carries the risk of some side effects. The most notable reaction that a patient may have is an immune response causing issues such as irritable bowel syndrome and bowel obstructions.

A medical professional must always perform stem cell injections to reduce the risk of complications and side effects. Your doctor can check and ensure that the stem cells used are healthy and professionally administered and can also manage your therapy once your treatment begins.


If you are searching for a way not just to grow back your hair, but to do so naturally, then stem cells for hair regrowth may be an ideal option for you. Check with a licensed medical practitioner today and see if stem cell therapy for hair loss is right for you.

Stem Cell & Exosome IV Therapy - Frequently Asked Questions

How can Stem Cell IV therapy help you?

Stem cell IV therapy is a way to promote healing and repair damaged tissue throughout the body. By delivering high-quality, mesenchymal stem cells directly into the bloodstream, stem cell IV therapy can provide targeted treatment for a variety of injuries and conditions, including chronic pain, arthritis, cognitive functions and more.

Additionally, stem cell IV therapy can support overall health and well-being by providing essential vitamins and nutrients that can boost the immune system and promote healing.

At Drip Hydration, our stem cell IV therapy treatments are administered by trained medical professionals and use only the highest quality stem cells sourced from trusted suppliers.

Is Stem Cell IV Therapy Safe?

There are different safety considerations for stem cells depending on their origin.

Stem cells from a patient’s own body (eg. bone marrow or adipose tissue) do not carry the risk of immune rejection. Stem cells from birth tissue may be rejected by the patient’s body and cause adverse reactions.

The purity of the stem cells used for IV stem cell therapy will reduce the chance of immune rejection. Our birth tissue-derived stem cells have undergone stringent testing and screening prior to accepting them for use to ensure both the effectiveness and safety of the procedure. Few patients report adverse effects following treatment.

Regardless of the source of the stem cells, there is a very small chance of infection from the procedure itself. That’s why our registered nurses are trained in administering IV treatments for your optimal safety and comfort.

What’s The Difference Between Exosomes And Stem Cells?

Exosomes and stem cells both promote healing throughout your body, but they are very different. Exosomes are vesicles that carry messages between cells in order to help your body function normally. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can become any type of cell in the body.

As a non-cellular therapy, exosome treatment can be valuable for individuals who do not want to receive cell-based therapy for personal reasons.
