Androgenetic Alopecia (AA), commonly referred to as male and female pattern baldness, is the most common cause of hair loss today. It affects approximately 50% male and 30-40% female population worldwide across varied ages. In the recent times, there has been a surge of patients asking for treatment of hair loss due to patterned hair loss. Though there has been a multitude of non-surgical treatment options available today, every modality has its own pros and cons. Adipocyte derived stem cells- condition media (ADSC-CM) is the growth factor rich media produced when adipose derived stem cells are cultured. During culturing, the adipocyte derived stem cells constantly release growth factors into the surrounding culture media. The stem cells are subsequently removed, leaving a cell free, growth factor rich solution which has been shown to exhibit regenerative potential similar to treatment using adipose derived stem cells The Conditioned media of Adipocyte derived stem cells (ADSC-CM), has emerged as a novel and effective noninvasive modality for managing hair loss and hair regrowth due to patterned hair loss. This review paper describes in details about various aspects of AA and the advantages of use of ADSC-CM in treating patients suffering with AA.
