Modern living often comes with a price, despite we have never had very much access to entertainment and technology. Saleen problem isn’t everyone has enough hair at the back, and if so it’s a very large operation, a FUT is very painful and FUE is very lengthy and expensive.
Concerns Follica I hope they will succeed, we have to wait and see until 2018!
Thx for your brilliant idea. Anyways, I feel like most people who can fill back a small bald patch on their crown region will always do so if they had the technology at their disposal. Eventually, I would get even more excited about Follica, Therefore in case he were to suddenly have thick hair at the top/rear of his scalp. I want to ask you a question. Cotsarelis does not care about his minor hair loss really?
Maybe I am being Therefore in case anyone lives near where Dr. I am very serious and do not mean to belittle Dr. George Cotsarelis works in Pennsylvania, it will be good to know if the small bald patch on the back of his head is gone or still there. Check the below video links that start in the most relevant places, to see what I mean. Now let me tell you something. Am I ‘mis remembering’? I believe I remember a prior post or commenter remarking how Cotsarelis mentioned they needed a lot more money to develop a cure and on p of that a true cure was still years away. Did something miraculous happen between so and now?
I foresee an island of new skin with perhaps a solitary hair. Hopefully in my case the hair may be bang on the mole, after that, at least I could sell photos of my head as an oasis like postcard. Well as I sit here watching TV it seems like any other day there’s a completely new pill for depression or smoking or pill for your depression pill or fibromayalsia with all sorts of scary aftereffects. I guess it just seems like they are throwing those out there and a lot of pills actually screw with hormones IN THE BRAIN! Anyways, I mean did all these other pills/treatments take a decade to get out or I gotta be missing something? Ahem meanwhile, we’re just attempting to get hair. Okay so I have a significantly small knowledge of how the FDA works but alot of people talk about for ages and all these treatments won’t get here for decades because of regulation right.
Yeah it’s not really true.
Since probably the introduction of Propecia in That’s the real reason, no real large pharma company outside of Allergan has a MPB treatment in the works, nor has it had one in recent years.
Companies simply aren’t looking at this area seriously, It’s not the FDA stopping it. And therefore the real for ages being that companies just aren’t investing in MPB. Whereas Follica has not released any results. Keep reading. You can bet they should be all over the news, Therefore if Follica releases positive results. I for any longer being that JAKs have actually shown results, and have proven that they are useful in treating AA. I’m sure you heard about this. I know that the test subjects probably signed a ‘non disclosure’ form. Thence why all this website exposure…. That would also mean the company is cofident enough in its product not to reveal the result to prospective investors. For example, the balding community is no punk, their is definatly a justifiable impatience in which many have. I feel they need to reach the peak of the product effectiveness, as releasing early pics would gauge the company only off those images.
I personally feel that the reason they won’t release photos for any longer because being since the fact it should allow the public to pressure the company into early release.
Just relax and wait and see.
Very good point Donald. So, everyone always demanding proof. Those worrying about the hairs falling out after for any longer being that they are still affected by dht, you do know that there’re excellent dht blockers that can prevent those new hairs from being effected. People just need to relax. Product will hit market eventually. Geez Im so sick of the jaded, pessimistic and hopeless members of the hairloss community. How do you know it cant?! Geez get over it, we’re all going through identical things, atleast their are still alot of positive and hopeful people left who actually provide relavence and info.
Your hopes been raised and dashed so many times in the past that you have to see it to believe it. Yes we get it. There were always people saying it will be cured within five years despite the fact that absolutely nothing was in clinical trials at the time. At best, hundreds of it was probably how their crazy aunt who sold Amway in the ’90s said that this new pical product should tally cure hair loss and it for any longer being that it was a scam. Quite a few these people who’ve had their hopes dashed are often remembering products and treatments that didn’t even exist. I believe what he did was that he did actually create new hairs not old hairs regrowing. Its been shown that hair can be grown in slick bald areas, look up swisstemples and his progress with just his ghetto home protocols. He did grow new hairs pretty well.
Swisstemples have shown 0 progress in his photos.
I’d say in case you really need to see something extraotdinary consequently that’s prettfly83 but unfortunstelly the original pics are gone becsuse hairlosstalk started deleting old attachments. Of course, in my opinion Follica is keen to the fact that minoxidil was not providing the results people are looking for. Consequently, they aren’t should be looking to it to solve their problems, unless this new technique they are using someone increases minoxidil’s effectiveness. Although, site and treatment looks very appealing, no doubt about this. Im pumped for this! Lets be real people, with that said, this could very well just be mockups and the wet dream of a frustrated bald scientist. Follica needs to show actual results…. Company has never specified what compound it’s using, and I highly doubt That’s a fact, it’s just Minoxidil. Also, I have covered Follica many time on this blog before in spite of the fact that until recently I was veryskeptical about the company. Know what, I am a bit of their patents they have mentioned various potential ingredients including Minoxidil.
Since skin damage allows for greater penetration of Minoxidil, people on hair loss forums have over the years postulated that the company’s technology is basically just glorified Minoxidil.
They do discuss ‘re ordering’ of the compound, that makes me wonder if this going to be for a while commitment just like with Minoxidil, no information is provided about the costs.
Assuming that you do get new hair follicles, how susceptible will they be to the ravages of dihydrotestosterone, and will taking Finasteride or Dutasteride to reduce DHT levels prevent the need for ‘re ordering’ Follica’s compound? I bolded the words until recently for a while being that a few months ago, Follica pleasantly surprised us and announced that it was aiming for a 2018 product releaseas a best case scenario.
Looks like my man cots is pushing full force ahead.
I love knowing my predictions will come true in due time.
With that said, this won’t be a cure but I believe follica mixed with histogen, ht, and hopefully SM will show excellent results. Then again, as for the lack of pictures…who knows.Maybe it’s preparing to wait for the final step next year and reveal the success therefore. Then, I still reckon that this could be the next treatment for hairloss. Admin I really hope this comes through for two reasons For all of us to finally grow back substantial hair and To prove for a while hahaha. Either way we all have seen what other companies have shown in before after pics.all photo shopped, combovers and stuff Only time will tell what’s to come.
He has the most professional website, sound protocol and backed by good science.
To be honest I wasn’t expecting all this high tech gadgetry to be part of the follica system but it’s good to have an ol that can assist us in applying treatment properly. Therefore, I have had two excellent FUT surgeries that have given me 6 my youth years back. Reputable surgeon what cares more about customer satisfaction than making a quick buck will deliver excellent and consistent results. However, they will release pictures to the press when their product and methodology is complete, and will save their most impressive results for their official announcement. Releasing before and after pictures of an incomplete product will literally do nothing for them. You aren’t adding enough, only 62 of required amount…also you have to add it to entire scalp, not simply thinning areas I can’t read it all but that’s the gist I got from it. I’m sure that the photo on their site shows a screengrab with a calendar saying something like, It looks like it does track progress though. Nevertheless, the site looks pretty cool almost like a hair Amazon store.
I’d think at least a lot of the investors should have to get thrown a bone sometime but that’s not my bailiwick I spose so now it’s time to hurry up and wait.
I haven’t looked much into them but it does definitely is a trend with some amount of these companies that cameras are a no go.
Still remains though how much hair they can get back. One reason for it is for a while being that these companies are desperate for public investors, and can’t get funding without them. Know what guys, I get suspicious of companies that release before an after pictures years before the products trials are even complete, in order to be honest. Now pay attention please. I feel confident for ages being that they have let their research and data speak for themselves looking at the gaining funding. VP of Clinical and Product development slots have now been filled at Follica and judging by their website revamp and solid details about their procedure, I would expect some official news before Christmas or a little sooner.
I’m quite sure I wouldn’t worry about it, So if they have indeed taken it down.
Photos in identical room, same position, same lighting -even pics done on auto with smartphone cams can immediately show any cosmetic effect which amounts to just about 10 more hair.
Evidence, show me evidence. While anything natural makes it questinobale, we’ve got trial overview https, just like admin said in April. With all that said… Point is, it so this, in conjunction with the calendar below lead me to reckon that the device, whatever it might be, has at least a rudimentary CPU, a sensor that tracks serum dispensed and a means of wirelessly communicating with your phone. Usually, it’ll be a minimum of a couple of hundred dollars for just the device and for ages period of long long time investment.
Those are not the robots. I’ve got very little confidence in them exactly due to shoddy results and no definite evidence shouldn’t be a cure. Now please pay attention. I’m quite sure I am curious about their topicals. DHT and it’s inflammatory cascade will still attack. Now let me tell you something. I remember reading that minoxidil was the picals in their trials.
Why is it outrageous?
I don’t understand why people feel entitled to proof from any company, especially during ongoing during trials.
Follica isn’t desperate for investors, as they appear to be in the final stages of development and getting ready for future commercialization, as far as I know. Histogen has released such pictures in case you are going to drum up investors, and have got nothing other than flack over them. Why should Follica and identical companies be required to do so, people don’t expect Microsoft to officially release pictures and specs of their new products while still in the developmental stage? You see, why?
It is intending to work.
Thanks for the post. For awhile being that I believe in skin disruption -I did actually grow more hairs near by temple by just plucking them. Further -I don’t believe they are relying on just Minox -that my be a waste of upfront research dollars and the community should sniff it out quick. I read your post recently regarding the arrival of Japanese companies etcetera but say 5 years ago were there as many variations of possible treatments being reported? Is it this year and last that it ‘exploded’? Has it always been just like this? It is like many others I started followed your blog quite recently as my loss is short and slow. My question is, it’s seems like almost any week or so most of us know that there is a tally new promising report on a logical treatment from a reputable company that results in excitement and educated theories. What follica is doing is hair neo genesis not hair regrowth, huge difference.
Considering what their results are with their device and what chemicals they are using to stimulate growth, I think their is quite the potential for new growth with continued treatments.
What’s to say you just buy a dermaroller, cut out the doc, and order the compound as is?
Producer has control over demand.never good for the consumer. Might be less sceptical when I see results, not holding my breath though. Keep reading! Few things I dont like about it…firstly, the scalp treatment mist be administered by a dr….that’s gonna cost a fair bit, moreover if it doesn’t work or leads to permanent damage, who is liable??. Sounds like it gonna be an ongoing treatment like minox, and furthermore, youre now bound to an app which will monitor your usage and reorder product? It’s very cool that, these years later, identical group looks to be prepping for a product release with a fancy new website.
I heard about this years ago on UPenn’s campus and always thought it sounded promising. It’s very positive! From where are you ppl getting info bout Minoxidil being a part of this treatment? Follica has to my knowledge never stated that minoxidil is a part of this treatment. Please post links to official Follica statements instead of unreliable info. That said, this looks like they have to convince -dermatologists as well as patients at really similar time with two different devices. Normally, I was thinking a little more on this. A well-known fact that is. We have had minox which is less effective and others that have sides. Also, I am super excited but since AGA has not been cured just only for nearly a few thousands of years look, there’s the skeptic in me that is asking me to hold my horses.
Why will they do this if the efficacy isn’t proven? We have had half assed devices like the laser helmets and combs. He was a Norwood 5 with a slick bald 10cm diameter vertex, and now he is a Norwood 4 with a 4cm diameter vertex with vellus hairs covering the once slick bald area. 50 year old participant of Fidia’s AGA trials has claimed that he has gained a full Norwood level since starting the Brotzu lotion trials. It sounds like a better minox/fin combo without reported sides. He states that the lotion will completely halt balding, and will slowly regrow bald areas. At this point it’s unclear just how much hair can be recovered with this treatment, the participants of the trial that have shared their information continue to see results. Therefore, in an interview with a Italian hairloss site, Brotzu has stated that the lotion works to block the processes of miniaturization of hair follicles by DHT, and in addition stimulates hair growth. It wouldn’t be like transplanted hair from the back of your head that isnt sensitive to DHT but rather it may be as if you stepped back in time to a full head of hair which overtime will be like the one you have day if you don’t keep up with occasional applications.
