Cell-Based Hair Follicle Regeneration
Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) have devised a hair restoration method that can generate new human hair growth, rather than simply redistribute hair from one part of the scalp to another. The approach could significantly expand the use of hair transplantation to women with hair loss, who tend to have insufficient donor hair, as well as to men in the early stages of baldness.

Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant
Hair transplantation has come a long way. With the advent of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), the dream of ‘no visible scarring’ in the donor area is now looking like a possibility. In FUE, the grafts are extracted as individual follicular units in a two-step or three-step technique whereas the method of implantation remains the same as in the traditional FUT. The addition of latest automated FUE technique seeks to overcome some of the limitations in this relatively new technique and it is now possible to achieve more than a thousand grafts in one day in trained hands.

Hair cloning (hair multiplication) is a promising treatment for androgenetic alopecia, or common genetic hair loss that is being actively researched by pioneering hair restoration physicians, like Dr. Bernstein in conjunction with Columbia University, hoping to be the first to develop a “cure” for hair loss. In hair cloning, a sample of a person’s germinative hair follicle cells are multiplied outside the body (in vitro), and then they are re-implanted into the scalp with the hope that they will grow new hair follicles and, thus, new permanent hair.

Beginning as early as 2014, the surgical technique patented by Dr. Wesley will receive FDA approval and be made available to patients worldwide. Using this innovative approach, the benefits of current surgical practices (hair survival and natural appearance) may be enhanced and the appearance of scanning may be eliminated. In addition, post-operative recovery may be improved by becoming more comfortable and more rapid. Read more >>>
Rebooting hair follicles with cells is not the only avenue of research, Washenik says. Latisse, the drug that is FDA-approved for eyelash growth, may also help regrow hair on the scalp. Still, he says, there have been some hiccups along the way. “It’s proving a little more difficult to get the medication to penetrate the scalp, but studies are under way, he says. Read more >>>
The true Holy Grail may come from the combining a drug like Latisse with a certain type of medication commonly used to treat allergies and asthma. The medication blocks a hormone-like substance that prevents hair from growing. A treatment like this might help with hair growth. Read more >>>
