Skin and Hair Transplantation

GHK-Cu substantially improved the transplants of skin grafts in pigs, mice, and humans.  The best results were obtained by using GHK-Cu dissolved in a small amount of DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide). Normally in skin grafts, most of the grafted skin dies off, and  new skin grows outward from the surviving core of the skin graft. However, the addition of DMSO often so improved the graft "take" that the final graft "take" area exceeded the actual size of the skin graft. 

Left - Control Graft about 20% of skin graft (at center) established ---this is a typical graft "take". 

Right - Graft soaked in GHK-Cu in DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide). Original graft overgrew transplant area.


NOTE: Could GHK + DMSO be a viable option for other possible uses in both the medical and cosmetic fields?
