Follow these recommendations to prepare for your therapeutic Stem Cell treatment and for your aftercare

Pre-treatment Recommendations

  • Avoid taking blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen for at least 2 weeks before the treatment.

  • Avoid drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours before the treatment.

  • Avoid smoking for at least 24 hours before the treatment.

  • Avoid using hair products such as gels, sprays, and waxes on the day of the treatment.

  • Wear old comfortable and loose-fitting clothing on the day of the treatment.

  • Wash your hair the night before the procedure.

 

After Care Recommendations

  • Avoid washing your hair for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

  • Avoid using hair products such as gels, sprays, and waxes for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

  • Avoid exposing your scalp to direct sunlight for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

  • Avoid swimming or taking a hot shower for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

  • Avoid scratching or rubbing your scalp for at least 24 hours after the treatment.

  • If you experience any pain or discomfort after the treatment, take over-the-counter pain medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen as directed by your doctor.

 

Infection and Inflammation

  • The scalp is very vascular so the risk of infection is quite small.

  • Watch for signs of infection such as redness, swelling, and pus around the injection site.

    • If infection seems possible you can apply a topical antibiotic like Neosporin to the affected areas, if symptoms worsen or persist call us. ​

  • Watch out for signs of inflammation such as pain, tenderness, and warmth around the injection site.

    • If this happens you can apply a cool compress to your scalp and take Tylenol for pain. 

Results

  • The results of the treatment vary from person to person.

  • You may start to see results within 3 months after the treatment.

  • The addition of topical minoxidil (available over the counter) and oral finasteride at 1mg/d (requires a doctors prescription) can also enhance the hair growth effect.

  • Best results are obtained after repeat treatment.
