Hair Loss and Regrowth
Scientists showed that hair loss happens partially as a result of stem cells escaping from hair follicles. They also shot a stunning time-lapse video of the process. The stem cell cycle Stem cells reside in “stem cell compartments” in various tissues. By differentiating into multiple types of cells upon demand, they contribute to tissue regeneration....

Last week, a new study published in Aging reported similar mechanisms of TGF-ß2 and collagen on hair follicle aging, dermal papilla cell senescence, and in vitro spheroid formation. Aging hair follicles Hair follicles reside in the epidermal and dermal skin layers. At their base is the dermal papilla, where hair growth is controlled by dermal...
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University have published a new study that sheds light on skin rejuvenation, and it shares a link with what some cosmetic companies are doing using laser therapy. A link between cosmetics and regeneration During their study, the researchers found that the laser treatments used by cosmetic companies and retinoic acid, which...
Scientists at the Johns Hopkins University reversed hair whitening and loss associated with a high-fat, high-cholesterol diet by using an experimental compound in a mouse model [1]. The compound The experimental compound used by the researchers, called D-threo-1-phenyl-2-decanoylamino-3-morpholino-1-propanol (D–PDMP) acts by blocking the production of glucosphingolipids (GSL), which are lipids that are abundant in the...
