An Insight Into New Technologies For Hair Transplant 2016
Though extremely common, hair loss is a horrifying disorder. It can sabotage a person’s confidence and aggravate feelings of depression. About 40 percent of women and 70 percent of men go through some degree of hair loss or hair thinning as they age. Although several treatments and products presently exist to fight back against this issue, but all of them do not work well when trying to boost hair growth. However, scientists have found new ways to grow hair that may lead to better treatments for hair loss. Hair transplantation is a permanent and effective solution for both women and men who suffer from untimely hair loss. While treatments are available, patients are looking forward to a scientific breakthrough in hair transplant 2016 that will ultimately herald a permanent end to hair loss. Luckily, there have been a plethora of scientific developments in this field recently, and these innovations can certainly cure the problem in the coming years.
Scientists from Sanford Burnham Medical Research Institute, California, have found a way to create new hair using the Pluripotent stem cells. According to them, they are one step closer to this new treatment for the hair loss condition. In a latest research, Alexey Terskikh, associate professor at Sanford Burnham and his colleagues revealed how effectively they grew hair using hPSCs (human pluripotent stem cells)- that is cells derived from human fetal tissue or human embryos that can become some other type of cell in the body. According to them, this new technique has the potential to be much more effective than present hair transplant methods. They have developed a technique that helps hPSCs to convert into derma papilla cells, that are responsible for balancing the hair growth cycle, and the formation of hair follicles.
The science of FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) has also advanced immensely. More efficient and new methods of FUE hair transplant have skyrocketed in popularity. One of the most effective and cutting edge procedures include the technique of extracting hear from the patient’s beard to the scalp by Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration. This is an exciting option for people in advanced stages of hair loss, and who also suffer from poor quality or limited supply of hair. According to Dr. Parsa Mohebi, facial hair remain in the growth phase longer, and enter the resting phase for a shorter period of time as compared to hair from other parts of the body. This implies that the transplanted facial hair will have a growing follicle for a longer duration of time. And as a result, it will create a longer hair shaft for more and better volume.
A recent scientific research has recognized PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic procedure for female and male patients experiencing hair loss. This is a non surgical method for people who require stimulation of hair growth for their hair loss conditions. As a result of all these scientific studies and research, PRP is considered as a natural autologous hair medical procedure performed for scalp, hair and skin stimulation. The therapy is performed by spinning down the blood in a centrifuge, and separating PRP and removing it from the rest of the blood. For this, Healeon’s medical system is used, which is a closed sterile system. The system knocks out granulocytes that hurt wound healing and tissue regeneration. Later, anaesthesia is given to the scalp nerves so that the patient does not feel any pain. The hair is then washed, and no further medication or sedation is given.
Another recent study recognized a molecule known as, laminins 511 that signals hair follicles to begin the growing cycle. This protein acts like a messenger moving beneath the inner layer of the skin to kick start the hair growing process. Researchers also believe that these findings may one day be the best solution to make pattern baldness. Scientists conducted this study on mice, and the protein was successful in generating the hair growth cycle. Researchers also believe that laminins 511 will certainly work to make hair grow for humans as well.
Dr. Carlos Wesley, a hair restoration surgeon in Manhattan has developed a machine known as, Piloscope. This machine is capable of extracting patient’s hair follicles from beneath their scalp instead of punching holes in their scalp. Dr. Wesley does this by making a small incision on the back of the head, and inserting the arm of his Piloscope into the incision in order to extract hair follicles. As compared to the FUE procedure, the scalp looks untouched with just an extremely small incision that can be covered up by hair.
Robotic Hair transplantation is another greatest accomplishment in the field of hair transplant. This system will be used to achieve higher efficiency and perfection, in order to provide spectacular results. The system will able to reproduce exact angle, consistency, and penetration depth to give excellent grafts. The robotic machine will remove hair grafts for harvesting one by one, and will also be able to implant them.
So, whether hair loss is a result of any illness, trauma, hair damage, genetic form of balding or aging, the good news is that there are a variety of medical hair transplant 2016 procedures available that can certainly help!
