New Hair Loss Procedure Promising

The demand for permanent fixes to the issue of hair loss is great. With an increasing number of men and women suffering from hair loss across the globe, solutions to address the problem are continually being developed.

One new method that’s being detailed by researchers seems to be the next promising move in the field.

According to one article on the procedure, this technique works to grow new hair follicles tiny dermal papillae cells from a donor site.

The testing has gone successfully on animals in a lab and is being tested on humans now at National Taiwan University. if it succeeds, it may, in some cases eliminate the need for a hair transplant.

The cells doing the magic are found at the very base of hair follicles and are below the skin, offering nourishment. They are removed from the donor site and then cultured in a lab and once a new follicle has grown, is injected into the skin in bald areas of the scalp.

Should this new procedure succeed and gain steam, the need for hair transplants, which can be costly - might be eliminated, at least for some cases. Instead of performing a transplant where grafts or strips are surgically removed from one area of the patient and then surgically implanted in the problem area, this new technique would grow new follicles in a lab and just insert them under the skin the problem areas without the need for surgical removal and implantation.

Not only would like drive down costs for patients potentially, but it will also increase the number of people resolving their hair loss issues and finally gaining back their self confidence.
