I’m definitely hoping that hair cloning will one day be a reality, but my question is, even if I opt for a hair transplant today, doesn’t mean I cannot benefit from hair cloning in the future when it is available right? the cloned hair can simply be planted back into the donor area?
Hair cloning is still in its infancy and we do not have much information about the process of a hair transplant with cloned hair, but I believe you are right and if it becomes available we should be able to transplant cloned hair anywhere that we do with conventional hair transplants now. Currently, we can transplant hair into scalp scars of any kind, including the donor scar in patients who have an unusually widened scar. The process should not be different with cloned hair for all types of scar tissue.
