Regenerative therapy for hair loss involves using a patient’s natural healing mechanisms to promote hair growth; this is accomplished by isolating and utilizing specialized cells found within the body that can regenerate damaged or lost tissue. These cells are typically sourced from a patient’s adipose tissue, rich in regenerative cells that promote hair growth. Patients who once felt isolated due to their thinning hair or bald patches can now look forward to a full head of hair and a full life thanks to this incredible scientific breakthrough.
Mustafa Ahmed, MD, is triple board-certified and has extensive experience helping his patients in Las Vegas and around the globe address their hair loss concerns. He strongly advocates regenerative therapy for hair loss, as it offers a safe, effective, and natural alternative to traditional hair restoration methods. Using the body’s healing properties, regenerative therapy promotes hair growth without requiring invasive procedures or synthetic chemicals that can often lead to unwanted side effects. Dr. Ahmed’s expertise in regenerative medicine and commitment to patient care make him an ideal choice for those seeking a solution to their hair loss concerns.

More About Hair Loss
Hair loss is a common problem affecting millions of people worldwide. It can be hereditary or the result of the natural aging process. Experiencing premature or excessive hair loss can be an emotionally stressful and traumatic experience for individuals. Becoming bald can instill fear and anxiety, prompting people to explore all options to restore hair growth.
Regenerative therapy for hair loss uses natural occuring cells that are packed with various bioactive molecules that have healing properties. 
The utilization of this therapy has increased across various fields of medicine. It has gained public attention recently, particularly in news media coverage of its use among elite athletes and celebrities. The regenerative therapy treatment offered by Dr. Ahmed is especially powerful in preventing future hair loss and in combination with other treatments.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss can be caused by various factors such as genetics, hormonal changes, stress, and certain medical conditions. While several treatment options are available to address hair loss, regenerative therapy has emerged as a promising solution for restoring hair growth. Here are a few common types of hair loss in men and women:
- Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss, affecting both men and women. It is also known as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness. Androgenetic alopecia is caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors and typically results in a receding hairline and thinning hair on the crown of the head.
- Alopecia areata occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles, resulting in round patches of hair loss on the scalp or other body parts. Alopecia areata can affect men and women of all ages, and hair loss can be temporary or permanent.
- Telogen effluvium is caused by a disruption in the normal hair growth cycle, leading to excessive hair shedding. Various factors, including stress, pregnancy, surgery, illness, and certain medications, can trigger telogen effluvium. The hair loss is typically temporary, and the hair will regrow once the underlying cause is resolved.
- Traction alopecia is caused by repeated pulling or tension on the hair, often due to too-tight hairstyles or pulling the hair back into a ponytail or bun. Traction alopecia is more common in women and can be prevented by avoiding tight hairstyles and using gentle hair care practices.
- Trichotillomania is caused by compulsive hair pulling, often due to anxiety or stress. Trichotillomania can result in patchy hair loss or thinning hair, and it can be treated with therapy and other interventions.
While regenerative therapy has shown promising results in promoting hair growth for various types of hair loss, its effectiveness may depend on the underlying cause and severity of the hair loss.
For example, if the hair loss is due to scarring or irreversible damage to the hair follicles, regenerative therapy may not promote new hair growth. Additionally, if hair loss is a side effect of certain medications or medical treatments, addressing the underlying cause may be necessary before considering regenerative therapy. Therefore, the success of hair regrowth through regenerative therapy may vary depending on the individual case and its underlying cause.
What are the Benefits of Regenerative Therapy for Hair Loss?
Some benefits of regenerative therapy for hair loss are:
- Regenerative therapy can help stimulate the body’s natural healing process to promote hair growth.
- Inflammation can contribute to hair loss, and regenerative therapy can help reduce scalp inflammation, promoting hair growth.
- Treatment can help increase blood flow to the scalp, delivering essential nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles and promoting hair growth.
- Many regenerative therapy options use the patient’s cells or tissue, reducing the risk of adverse reactions or side effects. Additionally, regenerative therapy is a natural approach to promoting hair growth.
- Treatment is minimally-invasive and involves minimal discomfort or downtime.
- Regenerative therapy can be combined with other hair loss treatments, such as medications or hair transplant surgery, to enhance the results.
Treatment for hair loss with regenerative measures is non-allergenic, making it suitable for patients with sensitive skin.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Regenerative Therapy for Hair Loss?
Individuals with early to moderate stages of hair loss and overall good health may be good candidates for regenerative therapy. To benefit from regenerative therapy, the patient must have enough healthy hair follicles on the scalp can respond to the treatment. Therefore, individuals recently noticing hair loss are encouraged to contact our office to learn more about this treatment. The earlier regenerative therapy is started, the better the potential results.
While regenerative therapy can promote hair growth, it is important to have realistic expectations about the potential results and understand that individual results may vary. It is important to consult with Dr. Ahmed to determine if regenerative therapy is suitable for your specific hair loss concerns. Call (702) 447-1257 to get started!
The consultation appointment involves meeting with Dr. Ahmed to discuss your concerns and goals for hair loss treatment. Dr. Ahmed may ask you about
- Your hair loss pattern
- Your history of hair loss
- Any family history of hair loss
- Any medical conditions or medications which may be contributing to your hair loss.
He will then examine your scalp and hair follicles to assess the extent and severity of hair loss. Based on this information, Dr. Ahmed will discuss potential treatment options with you, including regenerative therapy and other non-surgical or surgical options. He will inform you of their benefits and risks and answer your question.
You will come away from your consultation armed with the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about your hair loss treatment. Dr. Ahmed looks forward to meeting you. Call or complete our contact form today!

Our team will provide preparatory steps, such as preparing your scalp before treatment and other vital information. We are available to answer your questions or concerns leading up to treatment. Contact us if anything arises.
Regenerative therapy for hair loss is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require surgery or general anesthesia. After numbing the scalp, Dr. Ahmed will inject the regenerative cells directly into the scalp at the hair-loss sites using a fine needle. The injections are usually spaced out evenly over the affected area. The patient’s scalp will also be numbed after treatment to ensure comfort. The patient should avoid touching their scalp for the first few hours and protect their head from sun exposure.
Recovery after regenerative therapy for hair loss is generally quick and easy. Since the treatment involves injections into the scalp using a fine needle, it is minimally invasive and does not require incisions or stitches. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Some patients may experience mild soreness or swelling in the treated area for a few days following the procedure, but this should subside independently. Any discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
What are the Results of Treatment?
Hair growth is not immediate after the procedure; it may take several weeks or months to see results. After treatment, patients will see a significant improvement in hair density, thickness, and growth rate.  It can promote hair growth in individuals with androgenetic alopecia.  Patients with more of their hair will experience a boost in confidence and self-esteem after the treatment as they see their hair becoming fuller and thicker. This can have a positive impact on their overall quality of life.
After your initial session, Dr. Ahmed will monitor your progress to assess your treatment response and determine if additional sessions are necessary. Regenerative treatment for hair loss can be repeated until the desired cosmetic results are achieved – the growth factors work through normal gene regulation, which makes this a safe and repeatable treatment for patients.
