Do I Have to Use Medical Hair Loss Treatments after Hair Transplant?
July 10, 2015
Hair cloning treatment for androgenic alopecia is a promising technique under development to counter limited donor hair supply issue, especially for people with Type V hair loss or above on Norwood scale. Currently hair transplant surgery is the most popular hair loss treatment, for it gives back natural looking permanent hair. But hair transplantation does not grow any new hair; rather it redistributes existing hair on the head to give the look of a full hair. But some people don’t have enough supply of healthy donor hair and that fail to get desired hair thickness with hair transplant surgery. To help such people researchers are working on the idea of hair cloning.
In hair cloning, a sample of germinative hair follicle cells is subjected from the subject, from the areas with healthy hair growth. These hair cells are then multiplied outside the body using various culturing techniques. The newly produced hair cells are then re-injected into the scalp in the bald areas hoping them to act healthy and produce new hair. This technique is still in the testing phase and it will take several years before cloned hair will be available in hair clinics for new hair growth.
Hair cloning has been around since the mid-twentieth century. The first successful hair cloning was performed on rats in 1970. As the research advanced, scientists successfully grew healthy hair on bald areas of animals, but they have failed to successfully demonstrate the technique on humans. Very little progress has been made in this regard since then. A large number of companies and institutions have been working on different ways and ideas to correct the flaws and perfect the technique for human beings since then, but unfortunately, the technology to clone hair is not yet available.
Thus far, there is nothing like hair cloning treatment for androgenic alopecia. If you are seeking an effective and lasting solution for male pattern baldness, a hair transplant surgery is probably your only hope. Visit your nearest reputable hair transplant clinic and know your options.
