Follicular Unit "Exploitation": Follicular Unit Extraction Followed by Laser Hair Reduction-A Novel Approach to Repigmentation of Postburn Leukodermic Scars.

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2019 Jul-Sep;12(3):179-182

MedLinks, New Delhi, India.

Correction of depigmentation of postburn leukodermic scars is daunting. In contrast to vitiligo, the success rate of skin grafting techniques is much lower in postburn scars owing to altered skin architecture and poor graft uptake. Cellular transfer techniques such as noncultured epidermal or epidermal or keratinocyte suspension suffer the limitations of modest efficacy and high procedural cost. Read More

Graft versus Host Disease Presenting as Fibrosing Alopecia in a Pattern Distribution: A Model for Pathophysiological Understanding of Cicatricial Pattern Hair Loss.

Int J Trichology 2018 Mar-Apr;10(2):80-83

Center for Dermatology and Hair Diseases Professor Trüeb, Zurich-Wallisellen, Switzerland.

A case of cutaneous graft versus host disease (GvHD) presenting as fibrosing alopecia in a pattern distribution (FAPD) is discussed, possibly providing a mechanistic model for a better understanding of the pathogenic events underlying cicatricial pattern hair loss. The implication of a follicular inflammation and fibrosis associated with patterned hair loss has emerged from several independent studies. Eventually, Zinkernagel and Trüeb reported a peculiar type of cicatricial pattern hair loss with histopathological features consistent with lichen planopilaris (LPP) associated with androgenetic alopecia (AGA).

Scalp Surgery: Quantitative Analysis of Follicular Unit Growth.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2015 Oct 20;3(10):e539. Epub 2015 Oct 20.

Department of Surgical Sciences, Plastic Surgery Division, University of Parma, Parma, Italy; and the Cutaneous, Mininvasive, Regenerative and Plastic Surgery Unit, Parma University Hospital, Parma, Italy.

Unlabelled: Over the years, different kinds of hair transplantation have been compared in an attempt to overcome male pattern alopecia and, at the same time, maximize both the survival and growth rate of grafted hair. In this study, we have assessed the survival and growth rate of follicular units (FU) in an in vitro model, as compared with that of conventional hair micrografts, to experimentally evaluate and elaborate on the differences between these 2 approaches in hair transplantation procedures.

Methods: Group A (control; n = 100 follicles) was composed of hair micrografts, whereas FUs were assigned to Group B (experimental; n = 100 follicles, n = 35 FUs). Read More

Use of nape and peri-auricular hair by follicular unit extraction to create soft hairlines and temples: my experience with 128 patients.

Authors:
Sanusi Umar

Aesthet Surg J 2015 Nov 22;35(8):903-9. Epub 2015 Sep 22.

Dr Umar is a Clinical Instructor of Medicine, Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Los Angeles, CA.

Background: Hairlines and temples can look unnatural due to coarseness of the safe donor area of transplanted scalp hair. Although the thinner caliber of nape and peri-auricular (NPA) hair would be ideal to create softer hairlines, they have not been used mainly because of concerns that they are nonpermanent.

Objective: We assessed the outcome of NPA hair transplanted to hairlines and temples in selected patients. Read More

Enhanced restoration of in situ-damaged hairs by intradermal transplantation of trichogenous dermal cells.

J Tissue Eng Regen Med 2017 04 17;11(4):977-988. Epub 2015 Feb 17.

PhoenixBio Co. Ltd, Hiroshima, Japan.

We developed a nude rat model for determining the capacity of trichogenous cells to restore in vivo-damaged hair follicles (HFs). A surgical scalpel was inserted into the rat's dermis to generate the in vivo-damaged pelage HFs, the HFs whose lower parts were lost, but the upper parts containing sebaceous and bulge regions remained intact. Dermal papilla cells (DPCs) and dermal sheath cells (DSCs) from EGFP transgenic rat vibrissae were propagated in culture, and each alone (DPC or DSC) or a mixture (DPC/DSC) was transplanted into the intradermal path made by a scalpel.

Authors:
Samuel M Lam

Clin Plast Surg 2013 Oct;40(4):615-25

Willow Bend Wellness Center, 6101 Chapel Hill Boulevard, Suite 101, Plano, TX 75093, USA. Electronic address:

Hair restoration is an art and a science that requires an experienced and dedicated surgeon and team to achieve consistently superior outcomes. In addition to discussion of local anesthetic in use for hair restoration, this article emphasizes the pearls and pitfalls that are involved at every phase of the procedure including judgment, hairline design, donor harvesting, recipient-site creation, graft preparation, and graft placement. Two recent advances in the field are highlighted: the use of regenerative medicine (platelet-rich plasma and ACell), and developments in follicular-unit extraction as an alternative to traditional linear donor harvesting.

Direct hair transplantation: a modified follicular unit extraction technique.

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2013 Apr;6(2):100-5

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, National Skin Clinic, Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India.

Background: In hair transplantation, the survival rate of harvested grafts depends upon many factors like maintenance of hydration, cold temperature, reduced mechanical handling and asepsis. All these factors are favourably improved if time out of body is reduced significantly. We have tried a modification called direct hair transplantation in the existing follicular unit extraction technique, in which the follicular unit grafts are implanted as soon as they are harvested.

Farjo Hair Institute, 70 Quay Street, Manchester M3 3EJ, UK; Farjo Hair Institute, 152 Harley Street, London W1G 7LH, UK. Electronic address:

Dense packing is the philosophy of fitting more than 30 to 35 follicular unit grafts per square centimeter in one operation. The aim is to produce a more even, consistent, and natural looking flow of hair after just one procedure. Although desirable in principle, not all patients are suitable candidates nor is it possible to achieve in certain patients (eg, coarse or curly hair). Read More

Hair restoration approaches for early onset male androgenetic alopecia.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2013 Sep;12(3):223-31

Cosmolaser Medical Centre, Sharjah, UAE.

Society places great emphasis on the presence of hair. Some degree of hair loss is accepted as a normal part of the aging process, in line with the observation that more than 50% of men will develop androgenetic alopecia by the age of 50 years. However, it is possible to understand the psychosocial isolation and distress felt by men with a strong familial predisposition to androgenetic alopecia, who tend to display hair loss in their late teens or twenties.
