Explainingthe procedure that is scientifically known as stromal vascular fraction, Dr.Dinesh G Gowda, Senior Dermato-surgeon, Hairline International Hair and SkinClinic explains, “Whether for hair or for skin, the epidermal layer is removedand around 2mm of the patient’s own tissue from the dermis, including fat istaken out. This tissue contains many growth factors and progenitor cells amongother components. This is pulverized in a specialized machine and then issubject to filtration using a biological filter. This separates the progenitorcells, growth factors such as endothelial growth factors, fibroblast hairfollicles etc.,which support hair follicles and skin cells – for growth as wellas formation of new hair follicles and skin cells”.
Dr. Gowdaadds that this cocktail of growth enhancers is injected via a thin needle intothe scalp or the skin at areas needed. The process may be repeated in a year ifneeded for skin and if one would like a dense growth of hair.
Elaboratingon the benefits of such a process, Dr. Gowda explains, “While hair transplantremains the best form of therapy, this therapy makes use of the patient’s owntissue to create an effective cocktail and works better than individual growthfactors which are used.
