Svenson StemPlus Therapy Aims to Combat Early Hair Loss

Hair loss company Svenson has introduced a new hair loss product to the Asian market that they claim can treat excess shedding by means of a unique stem extract serum. The Svenson website claims that the extract is: “Formulated with a blend of powerful and effective ingredients that target beyond the roots of your hair problems.”

The website goes on to explains that the system works by “using Nano Encapsulation technology,” where apparently the “stem extract formula reaches deep into the scalp allowing for a slow-release effect”. The result is allegedly “fuller-looking hair,” and the treatment also claims to promote “vital nourishment to hair follicles for “healthier and thick looking hair”.

Big Claims, Where’s The Evidence?

Michael Bernstein, chief trichologist of USA Svenson, said StemPlus was “a result of scientific stem-cell research” that has been “acclaimed by leading trichologists in the US and Europe.”

There has long been discussion of stem cells for hair loss treatment, however Svenson is yet to publish any conclusive study results that prove the effectiveness of their latest offering, and no significant medical body such as the FDA, has licensed or approved the treatment, which uses stem cells from South Korea.

Mark Birch, Svenson’s British international trichologist, says that the treatment rebuilds a healthy and dense scalp through increased subcutaneous fat below the scalp whilst providing anti-microbial benefits, healing any inflammation.

There have been several studies with regards to using stem cells as part of a hair loss treatment, from generating hair on mice with stem cells, to the so called ‘vampire bat treatment‘ that involves re-injecting people with their own stem cells. However, medical bodies are yet to approve any form of stem cell treatment for male pattern hair loss, and whilst studies provide interesting data and prove the need for further research, a definitive case for stem cell treatment for male pattern hair loss is yet to be made.

The Proven Treatment

For those wishing to address their hair loss, the MHRA and the FDA (the UK and US medical regulatory bodies) have licensed or approved just two medications, which are highly complementary. The first of these, Propecia, works by blocking DHT, the androgen hormone that damages hair follicles atop the scalp, causing them to shrink and produce thinner hair.

The second proven medication, minoxidil, is a topical treatment that stimulates new hair growth. Belgravia produce minoxidil in a variety of strengths, and a hair loss specialist can create a bespoke treatment plan around your exact needs, potentially including a high strength minoxidil cream for particularly stubborn thinning.

Treatment plans also contain a range of hair growth boosters, such as the FDA cleared LaserComb, which can speed up regrowth in some cases. Regular check-ups are also important as they allow a specialist to measure your progress and adapt your treatment if necessary.
