Hair Restoration Treatment

Most people who are suffering from hair loss wish that there was a cure for baldness. Unfortunately, at this point in time there isn’t an actual cure to stop and reverse hair loss. The good news is that with the hair restoration industry becoming an $8 billion-per-year industry, many scientists and companies are working on finding a cure.

The most exciting new treatment on the horizon takes a single hair follicle graft and clones that follicle to produce up to 10,000 new follicles in only 3 short months. This would mean that a patient who is already at a Norwood 7 level of advanced baldness would have the ability to restore the entire scalp with their own cloned hairs. This, of course, is still very early in its discovery, and it will be many years before we see it available on the open market. Unregulated cell growth is basically what cancer is, so it must be tested and proven to be safe before it will be allowed anywhere for use in North America. Some companies are getting preliminary approval to start human testing in Asia as soon as 2018. Once this treatment becomes available, it will definitely carry a hefty price tag and will also mean a fairly specialized treatment and a team of highly trained doctors and nurses to perform this procedure. But at least it gives some hope for people who have advanced hair loss.

Problems With Hair Loss

Another cure is being looked at to actually stop hair loss in patients who have male or female pattern baldness. This is the most common form of hair loss and is called androgenetic alopecia in the medical world. Male or female pattern baldness is a hereditary form of hair loss that affects over 80% of men and 65% of women in the world at some level. Some people will lose hair faster than others based on the strength of the hormone DHT.

Scientists have been researching what causes this form of hair loss. We already have treatments such as finasteride or dutasteride that work to block the DHT conversion and therefore slow down hair loss. But some other treatments have been in the works that may possibly put an end to hair loss. Stem cell research has played a big part in the fight against hair loss. Many different trials are being conducted to see how this stem cell therapy can play a role in the fight against hair loss. Another trial is being done using JAK inhibitors that have shown some amazing results in not only stopping hair loss but also triggering the rapid growth of hair after the treatment.

Although multiple tests, trials, and research are being conducted all over the world on how to treat hair loss, we still have a long way to go before the actual cure for hair loss is discovered. So in the meantime, the best solution to get back permanent hair is an FUE hair transplant from our team at the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic.
