What is Stem Cell?

Stem cells are cells in the human body that, have the ability to renew themselves by dividing, and can transform into other cell structures. These structures, which are referred to as ‘agents’, repair by taking the structure of damaged tissues according to what the body needs. It can reproduce and change shape continuously.

The human body consists of systems, systems consist of organs, organs consist of tissues, and tissues consist of cells. The basis of every system is based on cells. Although stem cells are not found in the systems that will perform vital functions, they take part in the formation of the cells that make up the systems that perform these functions.

Stem cells can reproduce by dividing hundreds or even millions of times, unlike nerve and muscle cells, which do not have the ability to reproduce. While this division sometimes takes place for the repair of damaged tissues, it sometimes takes place within the stem cell itself for regeneration.
While the rate of stem cells in a newborn baby is 10000/1, this rate decreases to 1000000/1 in advancing ages. With this decrease, the repair of damaged tissues slows down and becomes increasingly impossible.

What is Autologous?

The term autologous can be described in the shortest way as ‘by itself’. The source of the operation and the structure to be affected are the same.

What is Autologous Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cells, which take part in the formation of all structures in the body, are used in the treatment of many diseases. Stem cells taken from the person are given to the person again after the procedures. Injected cells take on the structure of damaged tissues and perform the repair of damaged tissues.
Autologous stem cell therapy can also be applied successfully in people with hair problems in recent years. Samples taken from the nape of the neck, where the hair follicles are strongest, called the donor area, which is coded not to fall out from birth, are reproduced by a series of processes. The samples taken are turned into a complete solution and injected into the areas with hair loss problem. Stem cells taken from the hairy tissue take on the structure of dormant hair follicles, multiply by division and repair the damage of dormant hair follicles. In this way, it provides a movement in the area where it is applied. Hair follicles repaired by stem cells regain their former appearance in a short time.

What is the Difference Between Otolog Plus Stem Cell Therapy?

By combining different treatment with today’s technology, effective results are collected in a shorter time. Autologous plus stem cell therapy is a technique that is created by combining autologous stem cell therapy and steam graft infusion. Its purpose is to maximize the nutritional quality while ensuring the repair of damaged tissues.

In daily life a person is exposed to many external factors without being aware of it. These;

  • Stress,
  • Used cosmetics,
  • Applications to the hair,
  • irregular diet,
  • Irregular sleep,
  • dusty environments,
  • It can be listed as extremely hot or cold.

Besides these;

  • genetic factors,
  • Vitamin or mineral deficiencies
  • hormonal problems,
  • skin diseases
  • Drugs used,
  • Hair loss may occur as a side effect of an ongoing treatment.

Due to the fact that there are many external factors affecting hair loss, the fact that the treatment procedure to be performed is equally strong, increases the quality of the result to be obtained. For this reason, autologous plus stem cell hair transplantation, developed by Murat Makascı Clinic doctors, gives extremely successful results.
This technique is based on the principle of increasing the nutritional quality with infusion therapy, while repairing damaged hair follicles with stem cells.

Mesotherapy, which is rich in vitamins that hair follicles need, is applied to the hair follicles by evaporation. Although there are different application methods at different times, when applied together with autologous stem cell therapy, the hair follicles taken from the donor area are placed in the graft steam infusion unit. The removed hair follicles cannot be fed during their stay outside. Roots that cannot be fed lose quality after a while. A graft steam infusion unit is used to prevent this loss and to ensure the best quality transfer of the roots. In this way, the hair follicles that continue to be fed with the mesotherapy steam, which consists of the vitamins that the hair needs, are not exposed to quality loss.

While the hair follicles, which are protected from quality loss, are transferred, a complete recovery is observed with the stem cells to be injected. Stem cells transform into cell structures in the area where new hair follicles are transferred, thus both shortening the recovery time and increasing the success rate of the operation.

What is the Application Purpose of Otolog Plus Stem Cell Therapy? What Does It Do?

Autologous plus stem cell therapy is applied for two different purposes. These;

  • To prevent hair loss by stopping hair loss due to external factors,
  • To increase the success rate of the operation after hair transplantation.

Before the application, the reason of the hair loss problem should be known exactly. With the hormone and vitamin tests to be performed, it can be easily understood whether the hair loss of the person is due to genetic reasons or due to an external factor.

If the hair loss problem is caused by genetic reasons, an effective result cannot be obtained in the treatment to be applied. The only treatment today for hair loss caused by genetic reasons is hair transplantation. A permanent result cannot be achieved with any treatment protocol other than hair transplantation.

Hair loss due to an external factor, the hair follicles are damaged due to the exposed condition. When the damaged hair follicle cannot function properly, although it does not die completely, the hair follicle cannot produce either. This state is called ‘sleep state’. Although dormant hair follicles are live hair follicles, they are in a very thin form and cannot grow. With stem cell transfer, dormant, damaged hair follicles are repaired. Stem cells turn into the structure of damaged tissues and begin to work like that hair follicle. In this way, the hair follicle comes out of its dormant state and continues to produce hair by regaining its former strength.

If the application is performed together with the hair transplantation operation, the stem cells warn the dormant hair follicles as well as making the adaptation of the new hair follicles faster for the transplantation area. Taking the hair follicles from the donor area and transferring them to the transplant area is the first part of the hair transplant operation. The second part is to give the transferred hair follicles in the highest quality and to make sure that they add to the planting area. Since stem cells are in a structure that can multiply by dividing and constantly change shape, they will transform into the cell structure of new hair follicles, shortening the healing process and increasing the quality of tissue nutrition.

How is Otolog Plus Stem Cell Therapy Applied?

The application takes around 30 minutes under local anesthesia. It is a single session treatment. The person is awake whıle in the procedure. With painless anesthesia devices, the pain is minimized and there is no pain that will disturb the person. There is no need to stay in the hospital after the application. The person is discharged after 30 minutes and can continue his daily life in the same way.

First of all, unless there is a specific reason (such as chemotherapy, depression treatment), an area of ​​1 cm2, preferably behind the ear, is cleaned with special suspensions and local anesthesia is applied in the nape area where the hair follicles are coded not to fall out. Since the painless anesthesia technique will be used during local anesthesia, the person does not feel uncomfortable pain. Afterwards, hairy tissue and hair follicles are taken from the hairy tissue together with special apparatus. Afterwards, the donor area is closed by dressing.
The samples taken are made into a melt by going through a series of processes. This suspension, rich in stem cells, is injected into the problem area. In this way, autologous stem cell therapy is completed.

In autologous plus stem cell treatment, infusion is applied in addition to the treatment applied. The problem area is fed with the mesotherapy steam, which is rich in vitamins that the hair needs. In autologous plus stem cell treatment performed independently of hair transplantation, the person is taken to the infusion unit while the samples are processed. A complete nutrition is provided to the area with hair loss problem. With this increase in nutrition, the result is maximized. It is a painless procedure. After the application, there is no situation that requires the person to stay in the hospital. You can be discharged directly.

Does Autologous Plus Stem Cell Supported Hair Transplantation?

Hair loss problem can cause lack of self-confidence as it affects social life in men and women. Autologous stem cell therapy and infusion therapy are the most effective of the supportive treatments that can be done to maximize the result.

In autologous plus stem cell treatment, the hair follicles collected from the donor area continue to be fed with mesotherapy steam in the infusion unit as long as they remain outside. In this way, the transfer process is carried out by preserving the root quality. Afterwards, with the stem cell support to be made, both the damaged / dormant hair follicles in the problem area are repaired and the recovery speed of the newly transferred hair follicles is supported. This way the result is maximized.

What are the Stages of Otolog Plus Stem Cell Therapy?

The first stage is the planning stage. After the analysis, if the person does not have aproblem to continue to do the treatment, it is started. With the local anesthesia there is no pain that will disturb the person during the treatment. After the anesthesia is applied, a tissue sample is taken from the nape area, preferably behind the ear, where the hair follicles coded not to fall out with special apparatus. While the tissue samples taken are processed through a series of processes, the person is taken to the infusion unit. The problematic area tissue is also fully nourished with mesotherapy steam. When the stem cell suspension is ready, the stem cells are injected into the problem area and the treatment protocol is completed. Afterwards, the person can be discharged.

What are the Advantages of Otolog Plus Stem Cell Therapy?

In autologous plus stem cell therapy, the result will be at its most because of the nutritional quality in the procedure. While repairing damaged tissues is provided with stem cells, the nutritional quality of existing hair follicles is also increased. The two treatment protocols continue simultaneously. To summarize;

  • Two treatment protocols work simultaneously,
  • The result is maximized,
  • The person’s quality of life increases,
  • The procedure is comfortable as it will be performed with painless anesthesia technique,
  • It is completed in about 30 minutes, does not require hospitalization.
