Hair Loss Technology

Hair loss technology has come a long way thanks to decades of ongoing research. Curing hair loss may be one step closer after a team from the UK and United States worked together to create human hair in a laboratory, and although this experiment represents a minor breakthrough it will not replace the traditional methods just yet. There were problems in that, once the cells were harvested from the hair follicles, they had a tendency to grow into new skin rather than hair. Not the desired effect, but potentially good news for burn victims who need large areas of skin grafts in the future. Clumping the cells together increased the success rate, with five of the seven areas producing hair.

The main feat will come with modeling the hair to match the thickness, color, and shape of the surrounding hair. Then there’s the very complicated task of getting the hair to grow in the right direction. After all, who wants to undergo a surgical cosmetic procedure that ends up looking completely unnatural? It’s simply not worth the risk or the cost. The possibilities for placing hair into skin graft sites and following burns, especially facial burns in men, also opens up when this technology finally becomes mainstream, but it will not be for a few more years at least. Replacing eyebrows and eyelashes on ladies with facial and scalp burns also becomes more accessible.

In the meantime, there are still a variety of ways to combat and even manage hair loss. Some medications have proven to reduce the speed of hair loss and in some cases even restore some recently lost follicles, however they cannot create new hair follicles. Hair transplants can also be effective to a certain extent depending on the amount of hair loss and  amount of donor hair that still exists. A newer medical procedure called Neograft is rising in popularity, especially following some celebrity surgeries over the last few years, but its success still very much depends on the amount of donor hair available and also the desired look of the patient. Surgical hair restoration has proven to work well for recreating hairlines, but when it comes to covering a bald crown, the results of these types of medical procedures have not been as cosmetically successful. The point is, if you’re suffering because of hair loss and going to run the risk and opt for surgery to combat your hair loss, chances are you want full coverage, not just a few wisps of hair here and there.
