The Future Of Hair Restoration

Hair Restoration

Hair restoration in Toronto is a booming industry, and the search for effective hair loss solutions shows no sign of slowing as time goes on. Indeed, a permanent remedy to male pattern baldness continues to be high in demand the world over.

Over the past several decades, there have been outstanding advancements made in the treatment of hair loss, both medically and surgically, and research continues to progress as our technology develops. Even so, a majority of the restorative medication available today for people experiencing hair loss has limited effectiveness.

Part of the limitations we face may be due to the fact that we lack a comprehensive understanding of the exact causes of hair loss. Until we can identify all of those causes, we must work to treat the symptoms. Therefore, at present the most successful method for effecting hair restoration remains surgery, as it has been for countless years.

Non-Surgical Treatments

Stem Cell Therapy

For people who prefer not to undergo surgical procedures, there are currently many types of topical and ingestible treatments available. However, where researchers previously experimented with chemical and natural compounds, the focus has now shifted towards stem cell therapy.

Stem cells are incredibly versatile and have great potential for making headway in the quest to create new hair follicles where dead or dormant ones were predominant. In essence, stem cells are cells in the body that are figurative “blank slates”. That is, they are cells that have yet to enter the stage of development that “programs” them to give them their own specific purpose. Therefore, the potential exists for scientists to be able to create a blueprint for these cells to perform distinct functions such as growing hair. At the moment, there are several reputable companies working towards hair loss resolutions. They offer stem cell therapy in various forms such as a topical or injectable solution or an orally administered pill. Each of these companies have their own approach to the research and advancement of these products, and they are in varying stages of development. Some companies are currently conducting clinical trials.

The main shortcoming in the area of surgical treatments is that though one may see excellent results by electing to have this procedure done, the bottom line is that in any current hair loss solution offered, no new hair is added to the affected areas. The name of the hair transplant is apt indeed, as it is the act of retrieving healthy hair follicles from another area of the scalp and redistributing them into areas where hair is thinning or absent.

This is not to say, however, that advancements aren’t being made in this technology, which improves on the replacement process itself. Follicular unit extraction, or FUE, has grown in popularity and is often offered exclusively by premier clinics that provide hair replacement surgery in Toronto simply due to FUE’s advantages over other procedures. This method allows professionals to access donor hair from various locations, so large strips of tissue need not be taken from one area. Therefore, FUE results in less scarring for the patient.

Regardless, it’s clear that though the main directive for researchers is to move forward into biosciences in the coming years, these solutions may not be available for decades. In the meantime, hair restoration surgery remains the superior method of treating hair loss. Contact the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic at (647)343-0207 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Torgerson.
