Abstract

Cutting-edge imaging technologies and new luminescent and fluorescent genetic tools now make it possible to study hair regeneration in vivo in real time at the microscopic single-cell level and at the macroscopic level of hair follicle populations. These technologies also allow for noninvasive assessment of the skin's clinically relevant homeostatic parameters, such as oxidative stress levels and pH.
