    I've read articles and watched videos about this new treatment that uses stem cello to regrow hair. Does anyone have more information regarding this?

    Stem-cell therapy is an intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury.

    Follicle hair transplant therapy is still in a stage of research and testing, and so is not yet available as an alternative to conventional hair transplants.

    However, this treatment (which is also known as follicular cell implantation) will involve the following procedure - A scalp biopsy is first taken to obtain a few healthy hair follicles. (This uses a local anaesthetic and takes about 30 minutes).

    The extracted follicles are then dissected to obtain the papilla, each of which contains between 200 and 400 dermal papilla cells.
