Shaved Mice Research

It seems like every week brings news detailing a new cause of balding and this week is no exception. As reported in the journal, Cell, researchers recently discovered a method that could help regrow hair while they were not even searching for that information.

The researchers shaved these test mice so they could more easily observe the effects of the test. Once […]

One Japanese company is now promoting a hair loss cure that definitely falls under the “wild and wacky” category.

Advantages of Using Celebrity FUE

One of the main reasons patients don’t undergo Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is because they don’t want to have a shaved donor area. A smaller shaved donor area is possible with a strip procedure but this method results in a linear scar. In cases where patients don’t want a large area of their scalp shaved, their next best option is non-shaven FUE. What is Celebrity FUE? I introduced the term, as well as the procedure, “Celebrity FUE” due to the many requests from multiple celebrity patients. These celebrities could not afford the time, or the publicity, that results from shaving […]
