Bald may be beautiful, but researchers at Columbia University Medical Center say they are developing a new hair restoration procedure for men and women.

Unlike current methods that move hair from one part of the body to the head, this procedure uses a patient’s own cells to re-create hair growth, according to the report released by the scientists in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Monday.

“This could greatly expand the utility of hair restoration surgery to women and to younger patients — now it is largely restricted to the treatment of male-pattern baldness in patients with stable disease,” Dr. Angela M. Christiano, the report’s co-author, said in a statement.
