Recently, recommended hair restoration physician Dr. Ricardo Mejia sat down for an interview with Skin and Allergy News and discussed future hair loss treatments. During the interview, Dr. Mejia commented on exciting future therapies like hair cloning, stem cell hair loss treatments, and automated follicular unit extraction (FUE) technology.
Additionally, Dr Mejia provided his opinion on more controversial topics like low level laser treatments and the NeoGraft follicular unit extraction device.
When asked about the future of medical hair restoration Dr. Mejia said the following:
Robotic hair transfer, multiple technologies to optimize new growth, and even hair cloning could help overcome current limitations in hair transplantation … promising technologies could someday supplant donor strip and follicular unit extraction techniques, and we’re even [moving toward] more robotic involvement
Furthermore, Dr. Mejia had the following to say about eagerly awaited cell-based hair loss treatments:
Dermal papilla cells or fibroblasts are the starting point, because they stimulate formation of new hairs. Multiple companies are working on proprietary processes to spur these fibroblasts to produce enough follicles in culture to replace an entire scalp … research includes fibroblasts grown in subatmospheric oxygen tension, addition of wound-healing factors, and injections of a “hair-stimulating complex” to promote greater hair growth.
It’s always exciting to hear a hair loss expert’s opinion on new “hair restoration breakthrough” therapies and how they may be integrated in the future. Click here to read the entire article.
