I have emailed to Follica Inc. about the “launching time” of her procedure:
Hallo, Mrs Dupee. In an interview, Dr. Steinberg said:
“We’re testing various different dermatological procedures and drug
interventions to maximize the effect,” said Steinberg, whose company has
licensed the technology developed by Cotsarelis. “We’ll be testing in
humans within a year.”
“If all goes well, Steinberg said, bald men will be able to undergo the
procedure at doctor’s offices within a couple of years”.
Is it true? It is very important for me. Please answer me.
Her answer was the following:
Our goal is to have the procedure available in several years, but that
does not guarantee that it will happen (we can’t make any promises).
It’s also important to realize that we have only demonstrated the
procedure in mice - we still need to show that it will work in humans
and we need to receive approval from the FDA. There are a lot of
unknowns, but we are working towards making it a reality.
