The Future of Hair Loss

Genetics and Hair Loss

You've probably heard people say that hair loss is passed down to men through their mother's side, or to women from their father's side, or you've heard other such genetic theories about how hair loss is inherited. But how much real science is there behind these claims?

With advances in genetic research, scientists have gained new tools with which to learn about the genetics of hair loss. What have they discovered so far and what are the possible benefits of this research for hair loss patients? Join our webcast as we discuss hair loss and genetics.

Using Cloning Techniques In Hair Transplantation

Currently, the results from hair transplant surgery are limited by the amount of hair surgeons have to work with.

Scientists are working on techniques to overcome this limitation by cloning existing hair follicles, giving surgeons thousands of hairs to work with. This technique is probably five to ten years in the future but steady progress is being made.

Hair Cloning May Offer Hope To People With Hair Loss

In an effort to help the more than 80 million Americans experiencing hair loss, researchers are investigating a process known as hair follicle cloning, or multiplication.

In theory, this procedure would require taking a person's hair follicle cells, multiplying them in a laboratory, and then injecting them back into the patient's scalp. 

Cloning: The Future's Answer to Hair Loss

There have been tremendous advances in hair transplantation surgery over the last couple decades.

You may remember the old-fashioned plugs that were the horror stories from two or three decades ago...well the science and the surgical techniques have evolved into single-graft transplants and micrografts that have allowed for much more natural redefinition of the hairline.
