Clinical and macrophotographical study of the percutaneous implantation of synthetic hair. In Van Neste D., La Chapelle J.M., Antoine J.L., Trends in human hair growth and alopecia research, Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1989 ; 257-265.
A clinical study was made on scalp at 3 days, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months following implantation of synthetic fibers developed as artificial hair in Japan. Sixteen male and female patients with cicatricial or androgenetic alopecia Were implanted. The clinical follow-up was completed by macrophotography of the same located areas. We have evaluated the density, durability and complications after synthetic hair implantation of small located bald areas (0.25 cm2).
