Hair loss is a common and distressing concern for many individuals, affecting their self-confidence and overall well-being. This is something that affects us personally at Elegant SMP and our goal is to keep our readers informed with the hair loss space. 

Stemson Therapeutics, a leading company in the field of regenerative medicine, is at the forefront of revolutionary research and development, offering innovative solutions to address hair loss through the use of stem cell technology. With their cutting-edge procedure utilizing induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), Stemson Therapeutics aims to generate healthy new hair follicles and provide effective treatment options for individuals experiencing hair loss. In this article, we will delve into the science behind hair loss treatment and explore how Stemson Therapeutics is revolutionizing the field.

Understanding the Science behind Hair Loss

Hair loss occurs when the cells responsible for hair growth degrade or become non-functional. Stemson Therapeutics recognizes the importance of replacing or recapitulating these lost cells to stimulate hair follicle regeneration. Stem cells, with their unique ability to differentiate into various specialized cell types, play a pivotal role in this process. By utilizing iPSCs, Stemson Therapeutics offers a superior approach to generating the highly specialized cells needed for hair follicle growth.

Differentiating iPSCs for Hair Follicle Formation

Stemson Therapeutics has developed an innovative procedure that begins with the precise extraction of somatic cells, such as blood or skin cells, from the patient. These cells are reprogrammed into iPSCs, which can then be amplified and differentiated into hair follicle germs. These germs are carefully prepared for transplantation, eventually developing into fully functional hair follicles. This groundbreaking method eliminates the need for traditional excision-based hair transplant surgeries, offering patients a less invasive and more effective treatment option.

The Healing Process and Hair Regrowth

After transplantation, the newly transplanted hair follicles undergo the healing process and receive vital nourishment to support healthy growth. Stemson Therapeutics employs biodegradable scaffolds as temporary supports, keeping the pores open during the healing phase. These scaffolds provide the necessary structural integrity for hair shafts to emerge naturally through the skin. Over the course of a few months, the transplanted hair follicles proliferate, resulting in visible hair regrowth.

Protecting Hair Follicles from Biochemical Damage

Androgenic alopecia, a common form of hair loss, is primarily driven by the detrimental effects of biochemicals, such as dihydrotestosterone (DHT), on the hair follicle tissue, especially the dermal papilla component. One of the advantages of Stemson’s iPSC-based approach is that the transplanted hair germs are less susceptible to these biochemicals due to their neonatal-like characteristics. This clean and natural environment promotes healthier hair follicle growth and provides a protective barrier against further damage.

Advancing Research and Development

Stemson Therapeutics understands that the journey from preclinical development to human trials is a complex and rigorous process. While their iPSC-based approach shows immense promise, Stemson Therapeutics is committed to ensuring the safety and efficacy of their procedure through comprehensive testing and meticulous research. Although the exact timeline for trials and availability of the treatment remains uncertain, Stemson Therapeutics is dedicated to advancing the field of hair loss treatment for the benefit of those in need.

Future Directions and Potential Benefits

Once Stemson’s iPSC-based approach successfully translates into human trials, it has the potential to revolutionize hair loss treatment. This breakthrough technology offers the possibility of long-lasting and even indefinite hair regrowth, providing a viable solution for individuals, even those with complete baldness. Stemson Therapeutics’ dedication to research and development brings hope to those struggling with hair loss and highlights the exciting possibilities of regenerative medicine.

Collaboration and Expertise

Stemson Therapeutics was founded by a father and son duo who combined their expertise in stem cell research and biology. Driven by their passion for advancing regenerative medicine, Stemson’s co-founders, Alexey Terskikh, PhD, and his biologist father, recognized the potential of differentiating iPSCs into dermal papilla cells. This realization led to the establishment of Stemson Therapeutics in 2017, with the goal of revolutionizing hair loss treatment.


Stemson Therapeutics stands at the forefront of hair loss treatment innovation, utilizing iPSC-based technology to generate healthy new hair follicles. Although their procedure is still in the preclinical development phase, Stemson Therapeutics is dedicated to advancing the science and technology necessary to bring this groundbreaking treatment to those in need. As we eagerly await the progress of this exciting research, it’s essential to explore the available options for managing hair loss.

Elegant SMP is the place to get your scalp micropigmentation if you are interested in quality technique. Not all SMP is the same and your practitioner's training really does matter. For me, understanding how my artist could achieve an authentic looking hairline was very important, and very few SMP artists have the training to achieve that. Tommy at Elegant SMP is a true professional who understands how to get a natural looking result that is difficult to replicate - which is a true testament to his training. My SMP results exceeded my expectations and I would recommend Elegant SMP to anyone who is interested in getting the highest quality work the first time, or repairing SMP work that missed the mark.
