Root Cause - After Nature Gives Up, Technology Can Help Perk Up Your Mane.

Root Cause - After nature gives up, technology can help perk up your mane.

India - December 2005


Costs of hair-weaving can vary wildly from salon to salon, from a few to several thousands. Each sitting for a hair-graft will set you back by Rs 40,000 to Rs 45,000. The silicon-implant procedure costs around Rs 80,000 while the regraft will be an additional Rs 70,000

It can be safely said that Indian courtrooms had never heard of the term ‘hair weaving’ before Salman Khan filed a plea seeking exemption from an appearance on the grounds that he had just had such a surgery. The jury’s still out on the validity of the plea but medical experts say the procedure lasts just a few hours and is extremely cosmetic.

What is hair weaving?

It’s the science of weaving or braiding human or synthetic hair to the roots of existing, healthy hair so that it grows along with natural hair, thus giving the impression of a thick growth. It’s also called hair integration or hair intensification. ‘‘It’s a procedure appropriate for people with thinning hair. It’s not something that requires a H******* visit; it’s usually done in salons as a temporary procedure,’’ says Dr Shahin Nooreyezdan, senior cosmetic surgeon at Indraprastha Apollo, New Delhi.

Hair Follicle Stem Cells Contribute to Wound Healing, According to New Penn Study

Implications for Skin Problems Related to Diabetes and Other Disorders

(Philadelphia, PA) - Hair follicle stem cells are important contributors to the wound-healing process, according to new research by investigators at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

Using an animal model, the researchers discovered that stem cells in the hair follicle are enlisted to help heal wounds in the skin. This finding, published online in Nature Medicine last week, may suggest a therapeutic target for the development of drugs to encourage and promote wound healing.

Wounds, including skin ulcers and other dermatological problems associated with diabetes, circulatory problems, and other diseases, are a growing medical problem in the United States, notes senior author George Cotsarelis, MD, Associate Professor of Dermatology.

Previous work by the Penn research team had outlined the hair-growth process to show that stem cells in the hair follicle "bulge" area generate new lower hair follicles, which in turn, generate new hair.
