Histogen on transplanted Patients


#1

Do people think Histogen won’t work on transplanted patients? I’m confused to why it wouldn’t work… If they move transplanted hairs don’t they have the same tissue and characteristics they would in the donor. Therefore if you inject Histogen on transplanted hairs that have thinned at all wouldn’t it thicken that hair up as well?

I’m not the smartest guy here but I think that you’re right. I can’t think of any reason why Histogen would not work on transplanted hairs. But one thing to keep in mind is that there is damage to the inside of the skin during a transplant so don’t be surprised if all of your follicles won’t produce hairs since some of your follicles may have been permanently damaged during the transplant process.

gogo, you are correct that all of the follicles wont grow hair, however, remember that they was fairly certain that the injections were growing new hairs…one could conclude that new hairs could be grown in between the transplanted hairs to essentially increase density.

That’s what i think too. I think that the transplant patient will likely be pretty happy with his end result after histogen treatment. I wish we could pressure Histogen to make this treatment avail somewhere in the world after they complete the next study to determine the correct dosing. They could do it because this stuff is definitely safe.

histogen (if successful) will work for trasnplant patients. Listen to the interview about 6 months ago between Craig Ziering and Spencer Kobren. Near the end of the interview a caller askes that question.

no they were not certain.

if you listen to that woman from histogen being interviewed on the bald truth, she said that they “think” it might be creating new follicles. That does not even sound like they know what’s going on.

Personally i doubt the theory because if they were creating new follicles, the orientation of the hair would be all over the place. I think they are kick-starting the operation in the follicles that are still alive on your head.

if i’m right, this procedure will work best for people who still have their hair more so than a person who’s been norwood 7 for a bunch of years. all his follicles are probably long since dead and buried and he would get only limited regrowth if any.

So the challenge is to hang onto as much of your hair as you can till this thing comes out and PRAY its as good as the hype claims it is.

The above is just my theory btw. Not fact. So I may be wrong.

btw look at the lasercomb pictures :


looks great don’t it. but have you ever seen any laser comb user regrow anything? We need to be careful here because histogen like everything else that has fallen by the wayside could well be more hype than substance.

Let us hope they are onto something and have some miraculous before & after pictures to show by mid 2012.
