Auto transplant of progenitor cells in hair treatments

The progenitor cell for regenerative processes is a medical technology that repairs, restores and rejuvenates. Among its applications include hair treatments. This is used for alopecia and / or hair loss.

Ribe Clinic performs “autologous” therapy or transplantation of progenitor cells to give patients the ability to fight against alopecia and hair loss. The patient’s own tissues have the highest concentration of progenitor cells and can produce billions of cells with the potential to repair and regenerate.

What is regenerative medicine and how is it applied to hair treatments?

Regenerative medicine is a set of innovative medical technologies that rapidly expands and restores the function of the tissues where they are administered allowing the body to repair damaged cells and replace dysfunctional and aged cells, tissues and organs.

In its applications in hair treatments for alopecia and / or hair loss, it recovers existing hypotrophic hair follicles and makes the hair denser and thicker.

In a natural way, and without harmful effects, our own cells are able to improve the skin of the scalp, redensify the existing hair, and stimulate the differentiation of new hair follicles.

This hair treatment helps to return the hair to its usual cycle, avoiding the fall, stimulating the creation of new hair and improving the existing quality in thickness and density. It can be used in both men and women.

Alopecia, hair loss and fine hair

The problems related to hair loss are one of the most frequent consultations in our clinic and affects both men and women. The causes of alopecia and / or hair loss are multiple: androgenetic, hormonal, stress, post diet, hair aging… Therefore, in the hair treatments it is necessary to have a consultation with doctors of Ribe Clinic to evaluate your case and see if you are a candidate for this hair treatment.


Is progenitor cell auto transplantation safe?

The treatment for hair with regenerative cells is very safe since we have obtained the progenitor cells directly from the patient’s own body; there is no risk of rejection or other problems that are associated with embryonic stem cells.

In Ribe Clinic the hair treatment is performed by a team of experienced aesthetic doctors and is applied to the scalp for hair problems (alopecia or baldness, hair loss, weak hair …).


What is the auto transplant of progenitor cells for hair treatments?

The best way to repair and regenerate new cells is by administering them directly back into your body.

  • STEP 1: The doctors will assess you and confirm if you are a suitable patient and would benefit from this hair treatment.
  • STEP 2: This hair treatment involves taking a skin biopsy (2-4 mm punch biopsy) and processing it to remove the progenitor cells.
  • STEP 3: The skin punch is collected and centrifuged to separate different cellular components and the concentration of progenitor cells is carefully collected. The obtained cells are suspended in physiological saline. This extraction is in sterile medium.
  • STEP 4: These cells are injected by superficial punctures (mesotherapy) in the area to be regenerated:
    – Scalp: to open follicles and regenerate hair increasing the number of hair follicles and hair quality.

Results of this treatment for alopecia

Once the progenitor cells are injected into a patient’s area to be treated, they will begin to regenerate and revitalize the patient’s tissues, as well as help activate existing stem cells. The patient will notice the hair with more quality, thicker, and progressively, more density.

Progenitor cells need time to regenerate and develop new cells. The results of this hair treatment will take several months.

Like all treatments for baldness, fine hair, hair loss… the regenerative effects of the progenitor cells vary from patient to patient, depending on the age, the immune system and the current state of health.
