For the millions of people around the world who are looking for a ‘cure’ for hair loss, 2018 has been a year of hope. From hair cloning to injectable serums derived from stem cells, the promise of ‘miracle’ treatments in this area is becoming a reality.

The cosmetic industry is also benefiting from new measurement and tracking tools, such as HairCheck trichometer, scalp microscopes, and non-drug, no-side-effect Laser Therapy devices for hair growth like Capillus or LaserCap, says Bauman, which outperform the old-style weak, hand-held or clunky comb or dome lasers. With these available, ‘snake oil’ treatments are quickly becoming a thing of the past as savvy consumers demand measurable proof of results,” says Bauman. “More innovations will continue to trickle down from the medical and scientific community to the beauty industry,” he adds, while technology will have a growing role to play in combating hair loss too. “Products of the future will address the main issue of treating hair loss today: compliance,” says Bauman. “How do we encourage those suffering from hair thinning or other troublesome hair loss conditions to stick to their recommended regimen? New products will integrate smartphone and IoT technology to help keep people on track with their health regimens, and that will include reminders to use their laser therapy devices, take their supplements and apply their medications.”
