How Stem Cells Could Be the Future of Hair Loss Treatment

13 October, 2017 | Hair Loss | Author : Shveta Virmani
A recent research indicates towards a new and path-breaking treatment for hair loss. The research team has come up with a step-by-step guide to hair growth from stem cells. For all we know, this could prove to be an elixir for those suffering from persistent loss of hair and/or balding. So, how does this research prove that stem cells could be the future of hair loss treatment for men and women? Let’s find out.

The Research

The research comprised of the following steps:

  • 3D structures of stem cell clusters of skin were taken from adults as well as newborns.
  • The clusters were transplanted into nude mice.
  • Time-lapse images of the mice were monitored.
  • The behaviour of the cells was analysed.

The Result

It was discovered that mice with the skin cells of newborns exhibited hair growth, while those with the skin cells of adults did not show any growth. This helped the researchers arrive at the conclusion that stem cells are capable of producing hair, and also enabled them to discover the six-step process in which this growth occurred. These six steps were:

  • Aggregation of progenitor cells.
  • Conversion of progenitor cells to polarised cysts.
  • Transformation of polarised cysts to coalesced cysts.
  • Conversion of coalesced cysts to planar skin.
  • Planar skin’s transformation to hair follicles.
  • The growth of hair from the follicles.

Why Stem Cells – Conclusion

The research can help pave the way for what can easily be termed as the best hair treatment for hair loss. In fact, if materialised, this hair loss remedy will also be the most natural hair loss treatment and therefore far more effective in nature. However, the development of a regulated cure using the findings of this research can take years. Until then, one can easily find respite from alopecia or hair loss in the various promising hair loss treatments for women and men, such as a hair transplant.

So wait no more and unravel the way to a happier, more beautiful life!
