How close is science to hair implants that can\'t be rejected?


#1

With all the developments in hair and skin science, and the troubles scientists are having in creating new (cloned) hair that actually multiplies and grows, how close are we to having hair implants that can be inserted into the skin, and are not rejected by the skin? These implants could be removed when the hair wears out, and new ones could be implanted. Is this even a possibility?

we have recently talked about this, in this forum.
There are synthetic fibers, approved in Japan and other countries, but not in USA.
There are infection problems.
I think the most recent fibers have a collagen coating that prevents infection to some degree.

So far, not the perfect solution we are waiting for.

The companies that produce synthetic fibers will have to hurry up to improve the fibers. Otherwise, they will be totally wiped out when HM finally arrives.

yes, when HM finally arrives… in the third millennium!

I think that the Japanese are on to something. Japan doesn’t have lax public health regulations. Do you know that they test EVERY cow for mad cow disease? The USA only tests like 1 cow in 100,000.

I have also heard that Japan takes a lot of care for its citizens.
When we discussed about this topic before, I underscored this fact. If Japan has approved the fibres, I think its because they are reasonably safe.
I don’t know, it would be good to have more information, testimonials, oppinions of experts, etc.
