South Korea Anyone?

Post  Hotspur on Thu Feb 01, 2018 6:55 pm

Interesting post on Follicle Thought today.

This treatment is currently available in South Korea:

Quotes:

'HCell theorizes that their treatment is likened to the metaphor of trying to grow a crop in unfertile soil. Their aim is to make the soil, or scalp, healthy to produce improved growth of hair through the injection of PRP, Plasma, and bFGF.'

'The treatment originated from the office of Jaehyun Lim, MD, PhD of South Korea. He also serves as the CSO of HCell. Jaehyun has treated over 500 patients with this novel formulation and has observed positive results. Thus, along with his brother Jaebum Lim who serves as Chief Business Strategist for HCell, they have endeavored to bring this therapy to North America through the US FDA. The decision was made to approach alopecia areata initially and then female AGA because of the significant unmet needs in those patient areas. The HCell team also comprises William Jang J.D., interim CEO and Karl Kim, COO.'

The treatment is comprised of three one-hour sessions, 28-days apart, which is to help normalize your hair growth cycle. Currently, the cost is being evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

I'm still pretty dubious about this treatment.

The price is $2,000 x 3 treatments. And is only available in South Korea right now.

Having read the comments below and considered the companies background, there are some red flags. The first is that despite being available for four years and a roster of 500 patients, HCell has not published any data on hair counts.

Their stock response on this matter thus far is: †

'our internal data supports the finding that all of our patients have shown to experience varying degrees of noticeable hair regrowth ...'

When asked about hair-loss on the hair-line their stock response was deleted. A cynic would argue that's because efficacy for frontal hair-loss is thus far unconvincing. Is this just glorified PRP? Perhaps.
