It may sound like the stuff of science fiction but efforts are well under way to clone hair. The reality of this is that those suffering from male pattern baldness or general hair thinning could have a single healthy hair follicle removed and cloned, then literally hundreds or thousands of identical follicles reinserted back into their scalp.
Initial tests have shown good results but we are still a few years away for having this option to hand.
Until then the only other surgical option is the transplant where hair from an area of high growth is thinned and the follicles reinserted into the bald areas of the head. This can be moderately successful but is always a compromise.
Of course, anything that can be done to slow or stop the thinning at an early stage could avoid this scenario and that is where our FolliMax DHT inhibitor can help.
