How can I take time from my busy schedule to have a hair transplant?

A patient once asked The Hair Loss Recovery Program: How can I take time from my busy schedule to have a Hair Transplant? This raised the question how long a hair follicle remains alive if properly preserved. This question was answer by an experiment that took place in China. When hair follicles are stored in Saline Solution at 0 degree celsius they remain viable up to 7 days but their capacity to regrowth to a 100% was short lived by 48 hours. So, the busy doctor who could not afford time from his busy schedule opted to have his follicles removed after his clinic hours one evening, stored overnight as the experiment suggested and returned the next evening to have 3,500 of his storage follicles planted. Recently this doctor came for his follow up on the hair growth after 6 month. He was elated by the fullness of his new growing hair. 

 

What a major different from his before photographs! His barber who have seen other clients with hair transplant posted his photos in his barber shop with this comment “You do not have to wait a day to have a hair transplant”. This proof that necessity is the mother of invention. Thank you all the personnel at The Hair Loss Recovery Program. 

 

Sincerely,

Mustache transplants are now a thing

Mustaches are sprouting up on celebs and hipsters with some regularity these days-perhaps a logical extension of the whole urban lumberjack trend. But that's pretty much all that hair on the male upper lip signifies in our society-a trend, a fashion. Not so in the Middle East, where doctors are reporting a strong demand for mustache transplants. Men throughout the region are willing to pay good money (as much as $7,000) and travel far (to specialists in Turkey and as far away as Paris) to acquire what nature has denied them: a thatch of hair that imparts a sense of virility and strength. 

According to a recent report from CNN, Ottoman literature is filled with references to silky whiskers, and men in some parts of the region consider a mustache so central to their personal identity that they will swear an oath on theirs and curse the mustaches of their enemies. The transplant operation is a same-day affair that involves taking hair from other parts of the body and planting it above the mouth. Patients are sent home with instructions not to shave for two weeks, which is the only part that appeals to me. I do, however, harbor a desire to meet Reza from Bravo's The Shahs of Sunset (who, as far as I know, has a nose beard that has not been augmented in any way), and when I do, I will ask him to autograph my souvenir Reza mustache mug. I may also ask him to curse the mustaches of my enemies; I'm thinking it'll mean more coming from him. (By Allure Daily Beauty Reporter).

 

Why to fly so far away for Mustache Transplants when you can do it in Toronto at THE HAIR LOSS RECOVERY PROGRAM INC. for less money.

Hair restoration for the masses

The Hair Loss Recovery Program uses the combination of complex integration of multiple medical disciplines including genetics, endocrinology, dermatology, aesthetics and surgery. These skill sets are the bases for a program that fulfill all the necessary goals to achieve the best outcome. We counsel and advise patients on the risk, benefits and alternatives of hair restoration surgery in detail. Considering the patients age, gender, physical condition and family history of hair loss we also identify those patients who do not present with the most common cause of hair loss. We design a plan to fit all ages whether female pattern hair loss or male pattern hair loss.

The Hair Loss Recovery Program provides a safe and friendly environment for patients and staff in our Out of Hospital Premises Level 2 CPSO approved facility which was specially design for Hair Restoration Surgery. At The Hair Loss Recovery Program our experienced technicians prepare follicular grafts from donor tissue with less damage and minimal transections and our preparation and implantation techniques maximize grafts survival.

The donor scar is cosmetically produced by the use of dissolving sutures and trichophytic closure. The technicians and doctors pay special attention to the exit angles, hair direction, depth of incision and spacing to obtain a natural appearance and optimal hair growth.

The Hair Loss Recovery Program provides excellence towards the final outcome of a natural appearance.

The commonest cause of hair loss in women
A 47 years old female with a family history of hair loss came to our clinic for assessment. She presented with a slowly widening  hair part and  hair loss. In the hair check analysis and hand held microscope she did not exhibit hair shedding or breakage. She had not have any major stress or surgery nor she had weight fluctuation.

 

Her scalp did not have any itching, flacking or localized patches of hair loss. Her blood tests were normal for ferritin, iron binding capacity, thyroid and glucose. Her mother has a similar problem which began in early menopause. Her ethnic background is Caucasian. All of the above are common in androgenetic alopecia for women. A very common genetic condition affecting the scalp condition of approximately 50% of males and females over 40 years of age. The incident of AGA dramatically increases after menopause in addition to its detrimental cosmetic effects. Hair loss allows more UV radiation to impact the scalp increasing the risk of skin damage and cancer. Women with AGA maintain the frontal hair line in most cases unlike men who undergo by temporal recession. Women typically present with diffuse thinning of the crown and parietal areas. Treatments consist in using 5% Minoxidil solution morning and evening and in some postmenopausal women a trial of  1 mg Finasteride daily. In women oral contraceptives or spironolactone can be useful treatments. Low Level Laser Light has helped in some cases when use along with minoxidil but has not met with universal agreement. In experienced hands hair transplantation can make a large difference if artistically created to meet the accepted styling. Electrostatic fibers from The Hair Loss Recovery Program can cosmetically camouflage a thinning area. The Hair Loss Recovery Program can meet all the patient needs including hair systems and extensions to provide additional coverage.

It’s hair-raising

Hair follicles may carry a special type of cell that has the potential to grow into various types of tissue- a finding that could lead scientist closer to a cure for baldness. U.S. dermatologist said that researchers found stem cells in mice and when they transplanted them, hair sprouted where none had been before. Careful work showed the cells were stem cells, reported George Cotsarelis of the University of Pennsylvania Medical Centre and his colleagues. The mice cells could perform a few tricks, proving they were true stem cells. Not only could they give rise to hair, but to other types of skin cells. Writing in the April issue of Nature Biotechnology, Cotsarelis said the stem cells had certain genes activated that were not activated in other hair follicles cells. Drugs that affect these genes in people might lead to new ways of controlling hair growth, they said. The findings may help people who want to stave off or reverse hair loss, or those who want to get rid of excess hair, they said. These cells are also important in healing wounds.

Ongoing Research In The Treatment Of Hair Restoration
Researchers believe they might have found a cure for baldness: a natural protein that increases blood circulation to the scalp.
 
Doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital say they grew hair faster and thicker on mice using vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), a protein that promotes bigger and better blood vessels.
The hairy mice had no more follicles than their brothers and sisters, but follicles were much bigger. Collectively, the volume of hair increased by 70%. The finding appeared in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
 
The hope for humans arises from evidence mouse hair is similar in structure to human hair. and the growth mechanism may also be similar, said Dr. Michael Detmar. Until the technique is refined, any human treated with VEGF would probably also sprout a hairy face, back and feet.
“In male-pattern hair loss, it’s not that the follicles (hair roots) are gone”, said Dr. Detmar, associate professor of dermatology at MGH and lead author on the study. “They’ve just become miniature follicles. If we can make the follicles bigger, men can grow hair again”.
 
“The key is to stimulate production of VEGF, which is found in many parts of the body, but specifically at the roots of the hair”. For years, barbers have advised customers to massage their scalps as a way of
stimulating circulation and hair growth. Until now, no one had measured how closely blood vessels growth or what must cost scalp vessels to grow in the first place.
 
The doctors compared two groups of mice, one genetically programmed to produce an abundance of VEGF. Hair on the VEGF-enhanced mice grew faster and thicker in the first two weeks of life than it did on the control mice.
They also regrew hair faster. After being shaved, eight weeks old VEGF mice not only grew hair back sooner, they had a 30% increase in hair follicle diameter.
“By overall volume, the hair was about 70% thicker than in wild type mice”, says Dr. Detmar.
Blood vessels in the skin surrounding the pumped up hair follicles were 40% larger in diameter than those found in normal mice.
The doctors believe the VEGF inspired blood vessels also delivered an extra supply of growth factors in addition to oxygen and nutrients.
Dr. Detmar and his colleagues aim to develop a topical hair loss solution possibly an ointment or cream to rub on the scalp that will contain small molecules to encourage the VEGF at the hair roots to step up its activities.

This editorial was not a recent report and so far nothing further has been determined from that study. So, Hair Transplantation still remaining the only life time treatment for BALDNESS.
