The future is bright but not because of any reflections from bald spots. Rather, new technologies and research are uncovering new methods for treating hair loss. While the methods that are used today will not likely become defunct, new treatment options such as gene therapy, hair multiplication and dutasteride are simply other options which will eventually become available.

These three new treatments are currently being researched and or tested. There is no definite date as to when these possible treatments will become available or if they will ever become available. It is also important to note that the side effects are still unknown at this time.

Balding• Gene Therapy: Presently, scientists are working on this treatment which would manipulate our DNA so that they can control hair growth processes. Side effects at this time are unknown.

• Hair Multiplication: (Also called hair cloning). Essentially, this gives the ability to multiply ones own hair thus providing an infinite amount of “donor” hair which will then be inserted into the scalp by a surgeon. Side effects at this point are unknown.

• Dutasteride: Also known as Dual 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. This is thought to be the next step in treatment of hair loss. Scientists believe that if Type I and Type II 5a-reductase is inhibited, then orally administered hair loss treatments will be more effective. Side effects at this point are unknown.

Another treatment that is only recently available is known as follicular unit extraction. This is a procedure where individual follicular units are extracted from the donor area one by one or in small groups of up to three follicles instead of in strips. The results are more natural-looking than traditional hair transplants, but this is also a more expensive procedure. For more information on this procedure, check the Alternatives page.
