About RepliCel Life Sciences

RepliCel Life Sciences has developed RepliCel™, a natural hair cell replication technology that has the potential to become the world's first, minimally invasive solution for androgenetic alopecia and general hair loss in both men and women. RepliCel™ is based on autologous cell implantation technology that replicates a patient's hair cells from their own healthy hair follicles and, when reintroduced into areas of hair loss, the company hopes to initiate natural hair regeneration.

The RepliCel™ procedure has been developed over the past nine years by the Company's recognized research scientists and medical experts – specialists in the fields of hair growth, hair biology and dermatology.
