The last few decades have provided hair transplant surgery field with multiple techniques and strategies, which aim to discover the ultimate cure for hair loss. Hair transplant new techniques of the coming 2017 are those developed old techniques of the past. The late advances in the field have started after the emergence of the FUE technique and the consequent applications afterward.

Most companies in the field of pharmaceutical industry carried out the current revolution of hair regrowth. This revolution comes from the increasing quest for these medications and hair restoration solutions. These solutions were costly in their initial start, but the competition in the market makes the prices much lower than before. Therefore, the quality and prices are in a direct relationship, the quality becomes in a reverse relationship with the prices.

This matter decreased the quality of the products and the quality of the operations. By 2016, scientists successfully developed the naturally growing hair in the laboratory. The promising discovery gives us the believe that science may someday develop a natural cure for this problem.

Hair regeneration

It is a non-surgical alternative to hair transplant. Hair regeneration is a newly developed treatment for thinning hair and hair loss that makes use of stem cells. The new technique depends on the extracellular matrix, which is a wound healing material attracts the blood supply and stem cells to the areas of hair loss and thinning hair. The new technique clinically restores the basic cells that are responsible for hair restoration and regrowth. The use of isolated serum that contains regenerative growth factors and healing factors. These stem cells that will be regenerated, will allow the duplication process of the scalp tissues and muscles.

Hair cloning

This promising treatment for male pattern baldness and androgenic alopecia is one of the recurring topics nowadays. In this technique, a sample of the patient’s hair follicles will be the base for the multiplication process. The process depends on the administration of the human stem cells in vitro. Then, the surgeon will implant the multiplied hair follicles into the scalp to regrow new hair. This newly developed study has no proof up until now to produce new hair follicles. Nevertheless, hair cloning is just a theoretical method that needs much advance and research.

First, this new technique will be a high cost to the normal patients of hair transplant. Second, scientists who achieved much success in this field were unable to produce the desired amount of hair follicles. Third, most hair follicles were unable to produce new hair. Finally, there is a big difference between hair multiplication that treats hair baldness and the advanced technology of hair cloning.

Using PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

Platelet-rich plasma is not only a treatment of hair baldness but also an assist in many hair transplant operation. The blood of the patient is the source of the magical cure, so there is no obvious problem in using the technique of PRP. The latest researches of 2017 proved that PRP is one of the most successful techniques to restore hair for both men and women. However, how do surgeons develop PRP to treat hair baldness?

PRP is a regenerator or activator to enhance and stimulate hair growth. It energizes blood flow in the specified areas of the scalp that suffer from hair loss. At first, in the laboratory, the doctor will draw a specified amount of the patient’s blood. Second, he/she will distribute the amount on 8 glass tubes. Third, the laboratory technician or the doctor will centrifuge the amount of blood to produce PRP. Finally, the resulting cocktail will contain platelet-rich plasma, platelet-poor plasma and a concentration of blood cells. The doctor will use the platelet-rich plasma only in the following process.

He will use a small syringe to inject the PRP in the scalp of the patient with a series of small injections. Some doctors use anesthetic injection or topical anesthesia for the scalp to reduce pain and for comfort. This technique becomes common before and after hair transplant operation to stimulate hair growth and to enhance recovery of the tissues.

Using laser to treat hair loss

Using laser technologies in the treatment of hair loss and baldness is not a confirmed cure. This technique depends on activating hair follicles to produce new hair by using the laser light. The laser light will concentrate on the hair follicles and on the stem cells of the follicles to enhance regrowth.

Laser light generated by low-powered or cold lasers has recently come into use as a non-surgical hair restoration treatment for pattern hair loss. Many directions market for hand-held comb, cap or brush laser devices for use at home. Some doctors use larger cap or hood devices in hair transplant clinics.

The use of laser light has no approval or recommendation for treatment of hair loss due to any other cause. If the cause of hair loss is questionable, you should see a hair restoration specialist for appropriate examination and diagnosis before using an LLLT laser.

The use of lasers for medical purposes is not new. Lasers have been in use for medical purposes for many years. As a result, scientists have documented the physics, chemistry, and biology interactions of laser light with human tissue. Medical uses range from surgery using high-powered lasers to stimulation of tissue repair. Use of laser light as a hair replacement therapy for treatment of hereditary hair loss is a newer application of laser technology.

The cold lasers used as a hair replacement therapy for the treatment of androgenic alopecia. Finally, the LLLT lasers are cold because the target tissue will absorb the light but does not heat the target tissue as occurs with lasers used to cut and remodel tissue.
