Treatment overview

Stem cells are cells that don’t have the capability to do anything in the body, but over time are able to divide and renew themselves and become different types of cells.

With that in mind, there’s hope that stem cells can form into cells capable of regrowing hair.

Stem cell therapy for hair at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa is similar to a regular hair transplant, with the main difference being that this procedure removes a small skin sample from a donor area rather than a significant number of hairs. That sample is then injected back into the scalp in the area of baldness or thinning.

Stem cell therapy is designed for anyone, man or woman, who may be dealing with balding or thinning hair.


Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy

  • Though the long term effects of stem cell therapy are relatively unknown, there have been promising results in individual studies.
  • The actual treatment itself is painless and can be done under a local anesthetic. The procedure is also outpatient, meaning that you can recover from home immediately after treatment.
  • The procedure can be done in its entirety in about three hours.

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free of charge for all treatments, including stem cell therapy. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

Your Stem Cell Therapy Treatment

As with any procedure at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, we will begin your treatment by ensuring your total comfort in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.

Stem Cell Therapy procedures are performed at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Medspa’s Vernon Hills office on an outpatient basis, and your provider will begin by applying a local anesthetic. Next, fat cells are removed from the patient’s abdomen or hip using a micro-liposuction procedure. The stem cells are then separated from the tissue using a centrifuge and finally injected back into the scalp in the areas of hair loss.



The Recovery

Recovery from this procedure takes about one week total.

During this time, it’s best to avoid any strenuous activity. Additionally, you shouldn’t drive home from your procedure, given that you’ll still be feeling the effects of the anesthetic. There may be some pain post-treatment, but this should go away within a week.
