At the Cooley Hair Center, we are pleased to offer hair follicle banking through HairClone, located in the UK. Dr. Cooley has been involved in the quest to ‘clone’ hair for many years, first with his association with InterCytex, and now with their successor HairClone. Banking your hair now will give you the chance to use the best hair when the technology is perfected. As we age, our cells age too; using younger cells will give you the best chance of achieving the optimal results. While we do not know when the ‘cloning’ treatments will be available, active research is underway and many patients who have researched this field are taking advantage of this unique service. A small number of hair follicles will isolated and sent to the UK for cryostorage; this can be done at the time of your hair transplant or as a stand alone service.

How it works?

  • Around 100 whole hair follicles are removed during surgical procedure and placed in a preservative
  • Follicles are shipped to the UK and cryopreserved
  • Samples are kept under carefully controlled conditions until required by the patient
  • If and when tissue is needed for treatments, samples can be thawed and cells cloned

Why bank now?

  • Stop the clock of ageing
  • Cryopreserving tissue freezes the process of ageing
  • Younger cells are more regenerative
  • One extraction procedure provides material for multiple treatments

Potential uses for banked follicles

DERMAL PAPILLA CELLS – DP cells control hair growth and can be lost over time. HairClone is developing a personalised cells for androgenic alopecia

MELANOCYTES – Pigment producing cells in hair and skin. Several companies are working on treatments for greying hair and/or vitiligo using these cells

MATRIX KERATOCYTES – Produce the hair shaft under control of the dermal papilla. Have potential for aiding in wound healing

DERMAL SHEATH CELLS – Found at the bottom of hair follicles and can help stimulate hair growth. Being investigated for repairing tendons

BULGE EPITHELIAL STEM CELLS – Numerous groups are developing technologies using these highly regenerative stem cells to treat many condition including nerve damage and loss of vision

HairClone's cell therapy

  • Isolated dermal papilla (DP) cells from banked follicles.
  • Multiplied DP cells over 1000 times
  • Now aiming to build on preclinical data to show clinically that injected DP cells

Incredible hospitality by the entire staff. Dr. Cooley and his team really are true masters of their craft. I would highly recommend Cooley Hair Center if your seeking hair restoration as a option. Not to mention all the non surgical options that they provide. Just to throw this out there.. I originally opted for a 1200 graft procedure and come to find out Dr. Cooley ended up implanting an additional 250 grafts at no charge. Thanks again guys!

My experience with Dr. Cooley and his staff was excellent. I had my first procedure almost two years ago and will be getting a second one very soon. He takes the time to listen to his patients and then makes recommendations based on what he thinks will look best. Everyone on his staff that I have dealt with was very friendly and helpful. If you are considering hair restoration there is no one better to do it.

Cooley by name, cool by nature. Very professional practice. All staff are excellent and focussed 100% on you. All after care is explained deeply. Dr Cooley and Brandi stayed back late to ensure I got an excellent result. I can not fault the experience so far. I highly recommend Dr Cooley to any one considering a HT. Do your research, he is definitely top 5 in the world. Remember this is is your face, you wear it every day. Thank you to all.

I have seen Dr Cooley for several hair transplant sessions and I can say with my experience from a few other hair transplant Dr's I have done sugery with that they don't even come close to Dr Cooley's work. This Dr is very professional and he takes pride in his work. I would love to do another surgery with him I just don't know if I have enough donor area left. Go see him you will not be disappointed I can say this with certainty!

The most down to earth guy with amazing bedside manners and in depth knowledge of the subject. He is not somebody who will show off his expertise and as they say action speaks louder than words. If you want a genuinely skilled physician whose only goal to take care of patients in the honest possible way, he is the man. Great experience. Thank you Dr Cooley.

My experience with Dr. Cooley and his staff has been simply amazing....bottom-line excellent. I had my procedure done about 4 weeks ago, and he has been responsive every single time I asked questions throughout my initial healing period. During the procedure, Dr Cooley and his staff were unbelievable patient, professional and went above & beyond.
