Scientists Come Up With New Technique of Hair Restoration

Scientists Come Up With New Technique of Hair RestorationAccording to a latest report, scientists have developed a new way of hair restoration and this could change the approach of people on both medical as well as cosmetic grounds regarding this issue.

The scientists have conducted many researches regarding hair restoration and they have also studied hair restoration methods for years.

A new study carried out by a team of researchers from Columbia University Medical Centre in the USA, and Durham University in the UK, may have discovered the answer to the questions and hopes of many people across the world.

This research was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and the Scientists from Durham University and Columbia University Medical Centre in America collaborated and instigated this research.

The present method of hair restoration involves the moving of hair from one part of the head to another, but the latest method is about taking human dermal papilla cells, from the inside of the base of human hair follicles in order to produce new hair follicles.

Co-study leader Angela M. Christiano, PhD, the Richard and Mildred Rhodebeck Professor of Dermatology and professor of genetics development, said, "About 90% of women with hair loss are not strong candidates for hair transplantation surgery because of insufficient donor hair".

But the new technique offers the opportunity of inducing large numbers of hair follicles or rejuvenating the existing hair follicles, starting with cells grown from just a few hundred donor hairs.
