Fat, the Key to Hair Loss
Androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in men and women, and emerging science has uncovered a relationship between adipose tissue (fat) and androgenetic alopecia.1 As adipose tissue in the scalp declines, hair follicles stop producing hair.
“Scalp fat is integral to the hair follicle growth cycle. Fat layer thinning goes hand-in-hand with hair follicle shrinking and hair shedding.”Ken Washenik, M.D., PhD., Bosley Medical
Kerastem™ Reawakens Hair Follicles
Kerastem hair therapy utilizes the relationship between fat—a rich source of regenerative cells—and hair growth. When combined and injected into the scalp, purified fat and adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRC) have been found to reawaken declining and dormant hair follicles, helping subjects attain a thicker, fuller head of hair and renew hair growth in balding or thinning areas.2
Before & After Kerastem Hair Therapy
Patients are shown before and 12 months after a 1-time Kerastem hair therapy treatment.
Simple, Yet Superior
In a phase II clinical trial, Kerastem hair therapy demonstrated a statistically significant increase in terminal hair counts in males with early hair loss relative to the control population at 24 weeks. This one-time treatment is easily performed in a clinical setting at the point of care using the following process:
- Harvest, purify, and resize a small volume of fat with the Dermapose® system.
- Separate and concentrate regenerative cells from the fat using a centrifuge and mix with the purified adipose tissue.
- Inject the purified, "enriched" adipose tissue into the scalp.

Tapping the power
Bimini Health Tech empowers you to help patients tap their true potential. We are a recognized leader in stem and regenerative cell-based approaches to hair growth. Now undergoing clinical trials and not available in the United States, Kerastem hair therapy is an in-office procedure based on our leading-edge Dermapose® microfat grafting technology that provides an effective, autologous solution for early hair loss. 2
Fair Balance Statement
None of these statements have been evaluated by the FDA. Kerastem is not for sale in the United States. Kerastem technology is CE mark approved.
