An efficient method for eccrine gland isolation from human scalp.

Exp Dermatol 2018 06 3;27(6):678-681. Epub 2018 Apr 3.

The Centre for Dermatology Research, MAHSC, University of Manchester, Manchester, UK.

We describe a simple and efficient method to isolate eccrine sweat glands from the human scalp. This method is inspired by the hair graft harvesting method used in hair transplantation. Based on the recently described anatomical relationship between the scalp hair follicle and the eccrine gland, we have found that scalp follicular unit grafts are an excellent eccrine gland isolation source, especially for the coiled component.

Hair transplantation for the treatment of lichen planopilaris and frontal fibrosing alopecia: A report of two cases.

Australas J Dermatol 2018 May 24;59(2):e118-e122. Epub 2017 Jul 24.

Department of Dermatology, Cathay General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

The efficacy of current medical treatments for lichen planopilaris (LPP) and its variant, frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA), both lymphocyte-mediated primary cicatricial alopecias, is limited. Hair regrowth from scar tissue is usually not possible. Although hair transplantation restores the hairline and increases hair density in patients with cicatricial alopecia, the timing of the transplantation is crucial. Read More

Body to Scalp: Evolving Trends in Body Hair Transplantation.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2017 May-Jun;8(3):167-175

Cosmazone Hair Restoration Clinics, Mumbai-Gwalior-Delhi, India.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is becoming an increasingly popular method for hair restoration. As FUE leaves behind no linear scars, it is more suitable to harvest from various body areas including beard, chest, and extremities in hirsute individuals. Body hair characteristics such as thickness, length, and hair cycle may not completely match to that of the scalp hair. Read More

Follicular Unit Extraction for Hair Transplantation: An Update.

Actas Dermosifiliogr 2017 Jul - Aug;108(6):532-537. Epub 2017 May 5.

Clinica Mediteknia de Dermatología y Trasplante Capilar , Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, España.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a hair transplantation technique that uses small punches (0.8-1 mm in diameter) to extract the follicular units (FUs). Though initially the technique was not widely accepted because of the difficulty of extracting intact follicular units with such small punches, it has since gained in popularity due mainly to rising patient demand, the availability of better instrumentation and greater surgical skill acquired from experience.

Pretrimmed versus Direct Nonshaven Follicular Unit Extraction.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2017 Mar 16;5(3):e1261. Epub 2017 Mar 16.

Dana Plastic Surgery Clinic, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Shaving the donor area is one of the major deterrents preventing hair transplant patients from selecting follicular unit extraction (FUE). A minimal shaved donor area is possible in strip surgery, but the strip method is not applicable if the patient wishes to avoid a linear donor scar, wishes to minimize postoperative pain, or has insufficient scalp laxity. In these cases, nonshaven FUE (NS-FUE) is potentially a very good choice. Read More

Innovative modified hair follicle harvesting technique with reverse rake scalp elevator for lower occipital donor area in follicular unit extraction hair transplantation.

Indian J Plast Surg 2016 Sep-Dec;49(3):390-396

Department of Plastic Surgery, Grant Government Medical College and Sir J. J. Group of Hospitals, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is one of the widely practiced minimally invasive follicular harvesting techniques employed during hair transplantation. FUE technique has an advantage of utilising lower occipital area and supra-auricular region as a safe donor area described by Unger, in addition to the standard occipital donor area used in strip method (follicular unit transplant). Despite its potential advantages such as rapid recovery, minimal scarring and reduced post-operative pain; its widespread acceptance is limited due to various factors in variable contribution like steeper learning curve and potentially higher follicular transection rates (FTRs).

Dermatology Division, Department of Medicine, University of California at Los Angeles, Calif.; and FineTouch Dermatology, Inc., Redondo Beach, Calif.

Hair transplantation involving patients with tightly curled Afro-textured hair using follicular unit extraction (FUE) employing conventional rotary punches frequently leads to unacceptably high transection rates. These patients are unsuitable candidates for FUE hair transplantation. Transection rates were observed during FUE in a case series of 18 patients with tightly curled Afro-textured hair using different punches. Read More
