Default Stem Cell hair growth India

Hi ,

I m bit confused about the hair stem cell multiplication procedure provided by Dr Nigams . I went to there clinic to acquire some more information about it .
They told me its two stage procedure at first stage they take my 500 hair follicle and multiply it in there lab like 500 follicle will lead to 1lakh hairs and in second stage they will inject it all on my head after 20 days.
Overall procedure will cost me around 2lakh rupees.
when i raise my doubt whether it will give me results or not they said results are 100%.

so my concern is whether to go for it or not??
Is there is anyone who has gone under the procedure? please share your experience.

thanks

Default Stem cell concern

I would see their previous patients after 8 to 12 month results. Stem cell studies are still in early stages so have to be careful . What town is this in? Keep us posted.

Seems "to good to be true." I'd research heavily and proceed very cautiously. It seems like proven surgical techniques, such as FUT and FUE, may be a more effective option for the time being.

I have been in touch with Dr. Nigam and have discussed his procedure in great detail. My impression at this stage is that it sounds impressive in theory. However, I have yet to see any compelling photos showcasing it's efficacy. Most of the photos I've seen were either immediately post-injection or lacked sufficient growth.

It'll be interesting to see how this procedure evolves but at this stage, I'd say it's far from compelling.

Best wishes,

Bill

Thanks so much for reply ..
Even i was skeptical about this stem cell procedure. If this stem cell procedure is so successful as they say i think by now it would have become very popular among all over world.

when i went to his clinic , i did not get any chance to meet him in person. There are other so called doctors who are acting as sales man trying to sell me there product.

So whats the deal with this folks,

they would take 500 folicles(grafts) and how many can they create(multiply) from 500?

Do they just take 500 grafts one off and they keep growing new follicles in the lab for you?

They are opening clinics in london and few other cities soon...

Common sense tells me that when a procedure like this truly becomes viable, we will not have to hunt for it or stumble upon it on a discussion forum. It will be all over the mainstream media.

At this point, if it sounds too good to be true then it most likely is.

According to them yes , first they take your 500 grafts and multiply in their lab
for 20 days and then call you again and put all the multiplied grafts into your
bald area of your head.


As per there site they are opening there clinic in 35 countries and claim that they are first in the world to do this .


if it works then we dnt have to look for other treatments.

Had Dr Nigam told you that he himself has gone under stem cell
multiplication procedure?
Because they are advertising that Dr Nigam has gone under this procedure





Can you please verify.
