Hair Treatment

We diagnosis and provide hair loss treatment for men and women. The psychological effects of hair loss (alopecia) are vastly underappreciated. Hair is an essential and significant part of an individual’s identity and well-being. Dr. Al-Nuaimi has extensive training and has carved a specialist niche in hair loss diagnosis and treatment also known as the dermatological specialty of medical trichology.

During your hair consultation Dr Al-Nuaimi will complete a thorough assessment and evaluation of your hair and scalp and offer a customised approach to your hair loss, taking into account the multiple factors that may influence hair health.

Hair loss and scalp conditions treated

All hair and scalp disorders including Male pattern and Female pattern hair loss (otherwise known as Androgenetic alopecia, Male pattern baldness, Male hair thinning, Female pattern baldness), Frontal fibrosing alopecia, Lichen Planopilaris, Alopecia areata, hair shedding, Traction alopecia, Folliculitis, Scarring alopecia, seborrhoeic dermatitis, fungal infections, Psoriasis, Eczema.

The type of hair loss treatment recommended for individuals is determined by the type and underlying cause of the alopecia (hair loss).Some of the treatments include minoxidil or finasteride, corticosteroids, immunosuppressive drugs, Jak-inhibitors, stem cell therapy (such as Kerastem) and hair transplant surgery.

We are delighted to be able to offer Kerastem treatment for hair restoration which combines advanced PureGraft fat transfer with cutting-edge stem cell technology. The Hair Service led by Dr Al-Nuaimi at Wood MediSpa is the first location outside of London, UK to offer this treatment.

Kerastem is one of the latest methods for treating early hair loss caused by androgenetic alopecia (Female and Male pattern alopecia). This innovative treatment involves micro-liposuction and injection of fat and adipose stem cells to the scalp.  Clinical studies show that after one-time treatment with Kerastem Hair Therapy hair follicles are stimulated resulting in thicker, longer and better quality hair. The injection of mature fat cells and adipose-derived stem cells into the scalp helps stimulate hair follicles and allows natural growth of hair.

What is Kerastem Therapy?

Kerastem therapy is a day case treatment whereby your adipose tissue (fat) is harvested by Microliposuction and reinjected into the scalp (autologous fat transfer). The adipose stem cells, are obtained by purification of the same harvested fat. The treatment restores the stem cell and fat-rich environment to stimulate hair growth. It is designed to help people in the early stages of hair loss to retain and regain their head full of hair. Kerastem is the first, licensed stem cell therapy for patients with hair loss.

What happens on the day of my procedure?

The treatment is a day-case performed under general or local anaesthesia. The first stage involves a mini-liposuction procedure whereby excess fat (obtained from the lower abdomen, thigh or hips) is harvested. Approximately 50mls of purified fat is injected into the scalp and an additional 200-250mls is then purified in the Kerastem system to produce an adipose stem cell rich pellet. The stem cell rich solution is injected into the scalp using a precise pen-injection system to accurately provide the correct volume of stem cells to the scalp skin.

Advantages of Kerastem:

  • Prevents progression of hair loss

  • Stimulates hair follicle regeneration and growth

  • Minimally invasive

  • Minimal down-time

  • One-off treatment

  • Uses your own adipose cells (fat) and therefore no risk of rejection or allergy

How long does it take to see results?

Positive results may be seen within a few months, however, the effect of the treatment is best assessed after 6 months. Using the accurate TrichoLAB photo system baseline measurements of hair density, hair shaft width will be performed prior to treatment and at follow ups to assess changes in the thickness and number of hairs on the scalp.
