My post on if Shiseido decides to do so became too long, so I will add new updates here. Especially in regards to the company’s hair loss related clinical trials.
Shiseido Hair Regeneration
The company has two pages on its site in related to hair regeneration:
Shiseido collaborates with University Hospitals (Japan) on a clinical study in regards to hair regenerative medicine technology in Japan.
This technology entails culturing dermal sheath cup cells (DSCs). These represent the source of hair dermal papilla cells, which play a critical role in the growth of scalp hair.
For a patient with hair loss (male of female pattern baldness), these DSCs are implanted via injection into the balding scalp skin. The cells then rejuvenate damaged hair follicles and promote the growth of healthy hair.
