Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment Biological: Autologous cultured mixed population of dermal cells
A piece of occipital scalp is taken from the subject. A mixed population of dermal cells from this tissue are expanded in culture. The cells are then harvested. These cells are then injected into the balding area of the scalp of the original subject.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline in hair number [ Time Frame: 24 weeks post-injection ]
  2. Change from baseline in hair width [ Time Frame: 24 weeks post-injection ]
  3. Time course of any treatment benefit [ Time Frame: 24 week post-injection ]
