Ending baldness forever. A 50-year progress report.
Hair has been vital to how we look and feel for as long as people have been people. The quest to end hair loss precedes the advent of time.
The first recorded documentation of hair transplantation, dates back to two Japanese dermatologists, Okuda and Tamura, who practiced the procedure of hair transplantation in the 1930s. Unfortunately, their findings were lost to the Western World as a result of World War II.
It was not until the early 1950s, in New York City, that a dermatologist rediscovered and introduced the principles and techniques of modern hair transplantation to the West.
