Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is devoted to recent advances in hair loss treatment focusing on the development of new autologous and/or mini-invasive procedures. There is a clinical demnad for the development of biotechnologies capable of enhancing regenerative tactics in hair loss. To meet this demand, advances in tissue engineering must revolve around the improvement of mini invasive-technologies. Integral components of these technologies include the combined or indpendent use of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the micro-needling technique (MN-T) and low-level led therapy (LLL-T), which are applied to enhance hair re-growth. A special focus must be dedicated to the innovative use of human follicle stem cells (HFSCs) and human adipose tissue derived follicle stem cells (H-AT-d-FSCs) via minimal manipulation procedures.

Hair research is currently focused on the development of advanced topical formulations, while a major development is yet to be achieved in terms of autologous and mini-invasive procedures.

For this Special Issue, we welcome submissions exploring cutting-edge research and recent advances in hair science. Studies discussing new strategies for hair treatment based on autologous and/or mini-invasive procedures, in addition to those related to regenerative strategies such as PRP, HFSCs, H-AT-d-FSCs, and the development of new approaches such as MN-T and LLL-T are welcome. Comprehensive reviews/systematic review papers related to these topics are also very welcome.

Prof. Dr. Pietro Gentile

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Dermato is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
