A New Innovation in Hair Restoration Emerges

Hair restoration covers a broad scope of practices and techniques used to help or cure those suffering from hair loss and thinning. Techniques like tattooing the scalp to appear like hair, or performing surgery that takes hair follicles from area of a persons body and places them in the trouble area, have all been used to assist with hair restoration. And the market is no where near slowing down. Lots of money is spent each year searching for the solution to cure the ill effects of hair loss that plagues so many.

While one of the best known procedures today involved the use of surgery to remove grafts of hair from a donor site on the patient and then implant them in the areas of the scalp no longer growing hair on its own - there is a new technique still in its infancy that is promising to be the next biggest, best thing in hair loss surgery.

According to a report by The Telegraph, this latest technique, which was discovered by researchers at Durham University and Columbia University Medical Center in New York and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, involves using grafts of donor follicles to induce the growth of hair in those ‘dead cells’ so new follicles will begin to grow again in the trouble areas.

Initial testing has only been done on mice, but did find that by placing samples of dermal papilla cells, cloned in a lab from human donors, between layers of the dermis and epidermis, new hair follicles did grow in five of seven cases.

Professor Colin Jahoda of Durham University was quoted as saying these findings are key in assisting with replacement skin techniques in cases such as burn patients.  What’s different about the procedure is that it makes it possible to grow new follicles so hair restoration surgery can more vastly be applied in cases for younger patients and women, over traditional practices.
