dr vivek nigam hair loss clinic
hair multiplication or stem cell hair multiplication procedure
meets with tough scrutiny from HairSite forum members, a
relentless Q&A session with Dr. Nigam exposes plenty of
insights for the
hair loss community to digest.
Stem cell or cell based hair multiplication procedure is the
treatment or potential cure that men and women with hair loss
have been hoping for. Doctors or companies with claims that are
too good to be true is almost a norm in our forum.
In late 2012,
Dr. Vivek Nigam from Mumbai India became an instant celebrity in
our community as a result of the claims he made about stem cell
hair multiplication procedure at his clinic.
proceeds to approach Dr. Nigam's clinic for treatment,
please be advised that at this point we know very little about
Dr. Nigam's hair multiplication procedure, and have seen very
few results. Readers are cautioned against the legitimacy and
safety of the treatment. As a starting point, it is best
to spend some time understanding Dr. Nigam's claims and request
proof of concept, meet with actual patients, and wait for
consistent results over an extended period of time before making
stem cell hair multiplication Q&A with Dr. Nigam that may
shed some insights on his stem cell hair multiplication
Dr. Nigam's Donor
Doubling Hair Restoration procedure is unproven with a lot of unknowns,
this is for information purpose only in order for us to learn
more about the legitimacy of his technique and is not an
endorsement of the procedure by HairSite. Below is a reprint
from Dr. Nigam's website and is not endorsed or approved by
HairSite by any means. Readers are invited to raise questions
concerning the validity of this new unproven technique with very
limited patient results. Do not proceed with a procedure until
you have learned of all the facts and potential side effects
associated with the procedure.

- Could you try plucking hairs from the donor
site and dipping them in the
hair multiplication cell growth solution
then implant them like a regular FUE transplant.
The plucked hairs have some stem cells clinging
to the follicle root but not enough to grow.
With the extra stem cells from the solution the
plucked follicle would have a better chance to
grow. The plucked hair from the donor site will
grow back so there would be unlimited donor hair
(except for the 200 FUE to make the hair
- 1. how many patients have been treated with
hair multiplication using stem cells so far?
Where are the before and after pictures?
2. what is Dr. Nigam's background and
credentials, how come I have never heard of his
name before? How long has he been doing hair
3. what is "Hair Activation" that I read on this
link, what is the difference between Hair
Activation and Hair Multiplication?
4. how do you extract the 300 hair grafts? same
as how they do it in FUE or do you plug the hair
StinkySmurf - Question about
Hair multiplication induced regrowth. Back
in 2006, Dr. Paul Kemp of Intercytex claimed to
grow 66 new hairs using 100 injections, and in
Aderans November presentation they describe a
protocol of 10 injections per cm2 that grew 13
new hairs per cm2. Both of these pieces of
information tell us HM will grow around 1 hair
my bald spot is 40 cm2: With Aderans protocol,
I receive 400 injections for an average of 520
new hairs. With your protocol, I receive 20
injections for an average of X new hairs?
What is X? The only hair count information we
have to go on is your website which says you've
seen growth of 30,000 new hairs on some
How do you explain the fact that you are growing
so many more hairs with so few injections per
- Question about
hair multiplication photo documentation. If
you are trying to improve, or experimenting with
Hair Multiplication, then do you not need to
document and photograph your patients? 500 is a
huge number, it is very interesting that you
don't have evidence. So once again, for your
own scientific purpose, do you not take
photographs to see how well HM is working? ?

- I think anyone who offers
biofibers synthetic hair implants and
personally undergoes a FUT procedure, while at
the same time claiming to offer both hair
multiplication and "hair doubling," is a
- Question about
hair multiplication success rate. Dr. Nigam
what is the best case scenario for a successful
Hair Multiplication patient? What would great
results compare to if you were comparing it to a
number of successful grafts transplanted during
a traditional FUE procedure?
There is very little documentation as far as
photos go so its hard to understand how
successful HM really is even with the 50% who
Stating that you have a 50% success rate is a
bit ambiguous. What does that mean exactly when
you say success? What are you comparing it
against to claim a particular HM procedure as
successful? Can you expound on that please?
- Can you just tell me what exactly is
DONOR DOUBLING? How does it work?
- I have a question regarding your
hair transplant donor doubling technique.
Based on what you wrote in your post, is it
correct to say that for your duplication method
1. take a follicle from the occipital region the
scalp via FUE.
2. This extracted follicle is stained with
3. The follicle is then put under a light
microscope and the stem cells are identified.
4. This same follicle is then bisected and the
two halves are either both put into the
recipient or one half is put in the donor the
other in the recipient.
5. This process 1-4 is then repeated for as many
follicles as the Dr and patient agree on
Is this a correct interpretation of your
