Repair of Artificial Fiber Implantation

  • Kenichiro Imagawa

Abstract

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has banned the use of artificial hair fiber since 1982. However, other than the United States and Canada, artificial fiber implantation (AI) is permitted as a medical procedure by authorities all over the world. Disputes remain in regard to the frequency and severity of the potential risks of AI.
