Even though the technique has only been tested on mice, they have grown hairs on human skin grafted onto animals (specifically, mice). If this research proves legitimate, the scientists claim it could produce a treatment for hair loss that would be uniquely effective. In essence, this research focused on increasing the amount of hair on the scalp rather than relocating it.
Although the findings, published in September 2013, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, made news, it is a long way off from becoming a reality. Hair transplant experts believe, however, that this will advance the field with the latest technology.
In the meantime, this development joins a history of revolutionary technology in hair restoration. The latest is the NeoGraft FUE hair transplant, featured at Look Natural Hair Restoration.
