A new tech company called niostem is focused on devices that reactivate stem cells to enhance the body’s regenerative capabilities. Their first product is a new, upcoming solution that aims to solve hair loss. It is non-invasive and doesn’t use any potentially harmful drugs. The company also promises that the device will stop hair loss entirely, and even regenerate some of it, within six months.
For a lot of us, hair loss isn’t a serious problem. That said, according to niostem, this issue is very common and affects 90% of men and 50% of women. Most people who suffer from it feel embarrassed and frustrated about it. It doesn’t help that many of the existing methods to combat hair loss are invasive or use potentially harmful drugs. That being said, the company’s approach aims to solve this latter problem by using a less harmful procedure.
A wearable device that stays out of the way
niostem’s approach to stopping hair loss relies on stem cell regeneration. They achieved this through a device the user wears on their head for approximately 30 minutes a day. They can wear this device in the comfort of their homes, and simply let it work will they go about their day. The company claims that only three months of using the device will completely stop hair loss. After six months, it’s possible that hair will regrow by 19.3%, with other potential benefits from using it for longer periods of time.
While some side effects were found during testing, they appear to be minor. Some suffered from an itchy scalp as well as slight headaches during the first few days of testing. Despite all that, niostem claims that this method is six times as effective and twice as fast as the top FDA-approved anti-hair loss drug.
The device will be available soon through an Indiegogo campaign. Those interested can head to the company’s website to sign up for release updates. That said, please bear in mind that the tests were all internal and there’s no way of verifying niostem’s veracity. In short, please approach this with a healthy amount of skepticism.
