How Long Does A Hair Transplant Last – By HairCareMD of New York City

At HairCareMD, a hair transplant involves moving hair from the back of the head (the donor site) to an area of thinning or loss (the recipient site). Since the donor hair grows for life, the result of a hair transplant is a permanent enhancement.

One may ask why the donor hair grows for life? Are all hairs not the same?
The short answer is that the hair in the donor site is genetically distinct from the hair on the top of the head. We have all surely seen mature bald men with a horseshoe of remnant hair. It is this horseshoe hair that persists for life and is the “donor” hair. The donor hairs tend to be androgen insensitive (they are not influenced by Testosterone or the more potent, Dihydrotestosterone). Upon transfer, donor hairs maintain their genetic code and remain insensitive to androgens. A transplant when you are in your 20s will still be benefiting you in the golden years of later life.

Will health sensors make humans immortal?

Not so fast! We need to get from here to there. Today, health/behavior monitoring and quantification sensors are all the rage. The Fitbit, a wearable sensor, is one of the more popular wearable tech devices for tracking your health. Fitbit tracks your activity (steps), diet, and even your sleep patterns. You can interact with the Fitbit using a series of tapping sequences and the Fitbit syncs all your data with your phone and computer. Then the process is to quantify, analyze, and optimize your wake and sleep life. Doing all this will not help you avoid your ultimate demise, but it could contribute to a longer life, and better yet, one where you're in better health along your life's time-line. The concept is that if you are monitoring your activity, food, and sleep, you can make adjustments to improve these areas; thus better health. The Fitbit Flex is only $99!
