Beautiful hair and skin are interconnected in ways many of us may not realize. For the key to remodeling and rejuvenating skin begins with our hair follicles. When the body signals skin to remodel and renew, it begins by enlarging hair follicles. The growing follicles then stimulate new skin cells that proceed to migrate into the surrounding skin.

 

Doctors first observed this migratory effect in their wounded burn patients during World War II. They noticed that hair follicles grew at the edge of the burned skin. If the follicles enlarged, the healing was poor and burn scars remained.

Later, in 1985, we found that Copper Peptides not only stimulated the healing of wounds but also increased the size of hair follicles near the injuries. The copper-peptides were not hair growth stimulators, per se, but did increase hair follicle size and vitality.

 

In recent years, it has been established that genetic modifications in mice that stimulate skin remodeling also increase hair follicle size (Fuchs 1998). Genes such as sonic hedgehog (Sato et al 2001, Nanba et al 2003, Oro et al 2003. Mill eta al 2003), catinin (Huelsken 2001, Van Mater et al 2003), Wnt (Stenn 2001) and Noggin (Botchkarev 2001) all enhance hair follicles that produce remodeling.
