The unit, staffed by a team of highly specialized professionals in this type of intervention consists of three dermatologists, two nurses and one nursing assistant. They are also specialized in Trichology, which is the branch of dermatology that deals specifically with hair problems, mainly of different types of alopecia.
These interventions involve the launch formally this unit a national pioneer that allows hair transplant technique using micro grafts to patients with scarring alopecia or alopecia secondary to surgery for cancer.
“Complex cases are treated and previously selected to scarring alopecia and scars from previous surgical oncology consequences,” highlights from the hospital.
The surgical technique of hair transplant by follicular micro grafts follicles can move a populated area to a hairless area, thereby increasing capillary density producing a very natural result.
Among the most important benefits for the patient, they are mainly psychological impact decreased by having part of the hairless scalp well, hormonal alopecia, immune, by stress, eating disorders, by drugs, internal diseases or after cancer surgery or as a result of cancer treatment intervention. It also increases self-esteem and reduces stress of patients, improving the quality of life.
Researchers at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USA) have discovered a technique on mice experimental hair graft hair that grows up to six times more than current methods.
200 hairs when implanted into a section with a particular density, the scientists were able to regenerate hair until 1200, says the report of the study published Thursday in the journal 'Cell'.
a dermatologist and lead author of the study believe this work opens the possibility of a new approach to treating baldness. “An injury that affects the hair follicle (the cavity where the hair grows) also compromises their immediate environment, which in turn can have an effect on hair regeneration,” he said.
From this observation, scientists thought to act on the environment to activate hair follicles more. To test this hypothesis, Cheng and his team implanted 200 hair follicles, one by one, in different configurations, on the backs of mice.
By implementing these hairs with low density than six millimeters including radio, there was no regeneration. But when they were implanted with a three-to five millimeters including regenerated follicles allowed 450-1300 hairs, some of them outside the area of the implant.
Although all lose hair inexorably (50 to 100 hairs every day on average), hair loss when it causes partial or total baldness can reach undermine the self confidence and even cause depression. Now, new research from the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute in La Jolla, California (USA) has a step to treat this condition: generate new hair by using human pluripotent stem cells. The study was published in the journal PLoS One.
The causes of alopecia may be the most common extreme stress, thyroid disorders, anemia, psoriasis, use of certain medications or inherit this problem either father or mother.
The researchers wanted to test the effectiveness of new hair growth by using human pluripotent stem cells, ie, cells derived from human embryos or human fetal tissue that have the ability to become any type of cell in the body. To do this, they performed the experiment with mice using a technique that encouraged these cells to become cells of the dermal papilla, which give rise to the hair follicles and the hair growth cycle. The experiment was a success and the cells induced hair growth in rodents.
