What is the image of a man of the future? You can imagine him or her as a picture on the poster – a young and healthy, with a happy face and a white-toothy smile. And, of course, with a magnificent mop of hair – a sign of excellent health and harmony!
In what ways does modern science intend to overcome baldness?
“Canonical” trichology relies on hair transplantation. The technique is improved, helping patients in the absence of edema, complications, and scars on the nape, from which the transplanted bulbs are removed. However, the transplant remains a transplant – a tricky trick, how to move “independent” hair from the small bottom of the nape to the large bald spot.
According to the researchers, one of the methods is this: a special vacuum massager is needed to pull up the scalp throughout the area – this would ensure the restoration of the subcutaneous tissue and blood supply to the scalp, giving the hair a healthy soil for growth.
A similar method already exists and is widely used in cosmetology, including hair restoration. The procedure is called plasma lifting. In the problem zone are to be made injections with the blood plasma of a patient. There is a strong activation of cells and rejuvenation of tissues, hair begins to germinate. But, unfortunately, the effect lasts not so long – a year maximum. Hair restoration is often not full, it helps only in about 70 percents of the cases. The procedure does not provide for the removal of deep factors, and therefore can’t be taken seriously, at least, for now.
Some American and Japanese scientists are also engaged in research in this area
One of the most incredible projects looks like this: with the use of the DNA of the future owner, a new scalp is grown in the laboratory, with fresh, thick hair. The bioproduct looks like today’s hair systems only the hair is alive, capable of growing. With the help of high surgical technologies, a new scalp gets accustomed to the bald spot, and that’s it. The advantage of this method is also that it will return hair loss from radiation, illness or burn. Perhaps the service life of new hair will theoretically be limited to a ten or more years.
Modern science in the fight against alopecia
Now many gerontologists come to conclusions that our body is really nominally designed to live up to 100 – 150 years and its regenerative potential has not been properly studied. There is information about the growth of the new teeth in many older people. There are lucky ones who do not have the so-called “aging gene”. Many sources describe a famous case, as a 9-year-old boy grew a new leg instead of lost due to injury – he liked to watch the lizards as they grow new tails and this impression seems to have been switched on his subconscious “stereotype” giving a certain command for self-healing.
Technological progress today allows mini-transplantation or hair transplantation, depending on the case, to be achieved, thanks to which the most natural results are received. The same effective are Propecia and Rogaine drugs that can be purchased in Canadian pharmacy online.
In 6 to 12 months after the operation, its result can be evaluated. This time is necessary for the displaced hair to become visible. It is necessary to wait from 1 to 1.5 years for the hair became thick enough. Of course, in parallel, the patient can visit pharmacies and buy vitamins to improve his or her condition. Progress does not stand still, for the last five years the period of full rehabilitation has decreased several times. Who knows what is ahead of us?
