News on Follica (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

How do I know this? Because if people had noticed that dermabrasion could reliably grow lots of hair, it would have become huge news long, long ago, and people would just be getting dermabrasion to cure their MPB, and we wouldn't even be here discussing this, because hair loss would be solved.

Here we go with the straw men again.

But just because you're fixated on wounding doesn't mean stuff like this should be off your radar. Histogen's HSC is an example of an injectible solution of growth factors and proteins which has resulted in brand new hairs, and regenerated hairs, growing in bald areas. Just as good as your 1/1,000,000 idiosyncratic response wounding anecdotes, in fact much much better because at least you can know and control the amount of growth factors you're adding -- it's not a wild crap shoot like wounding is.

Fair point. Histogen has apparently have seen some de novo hair growth. Their progress has been so little for so long that I've begun to forget about them lately, to be honest.

But you are always bringing up your belief that their hairs aren't likely to last without repeated treatments. Have you changed your mind on that? Much of the reason we got into this debate is because you keep saying any gains from growth factors would need to be chronically boosted just to survive.

There is nothing 1/1,000,000 about guys growing some occasional nice big terminals from needling. If you think that's rare then you just haven't been paying attention to people's experimentations with needling. It's not even unusual.

What is unusual, but 100% possible, is people growing thick, dense patches of de novo scalp hairs from cancer meds. IMO that deserves understanding more than anything else.

Those two cases were not 1/1,000,000 unless there have already been well over 2,000,000 people treated with Gefitnib. IMO it was likely caused by the drug + sunburns + other possible factors as yet unknown.

Sure, maybe the scenario causing their growth is practically useless for treating MPB . . . but what if it's not?
