I remember back when Follica was supposed to have us cured by 2008. 12 years later its still a pipedream. I mahaged not to even view this website for a solid 4-5 years. started reading threads again a few weeks ago and nothing has changed.
im not up to date on all the "latest" upcoming cures but it doesnt seem like anything is possible within the next 10 years.
How much longer till we see this do you think?Yeah, but now Follica is actually in late-stage trials, has patented their tech, and is clearly poised for release. In 2008, it was just research - not protocol, no proprietary tech, and no trials.
Research is slow. Medical research is slower. But unlike 2008, we now see the light at the end of the Follica tunnel. The only real question now is efficacy - how good will it be? Given how many people have had good results blindly needling, with no clue as to what is the optimum depth, density, timing, or added compounds, chances are that Follica will be great for lower NWs (<NW3), and possibly good for higher ones. A cure? No - but a new, powerful arrow in the quiver. The Big Three will soon be the Big Four, and that is a monumental shift in a paradigm that hasn't changed in 20 years. That's not cope, it's extrapolation of many, solid data points.

Ugh I keep hearing new things. I just want something in the next couple years I think meds can hold us all off for awhileMy-my, and the hair transplant butchers would be waiting in the wings like salivating jackals over this unfounded speculation.
I believe FOL-004 is coming. Nobody props up a company this long without a realistic plan for product release. Not unless it's a Japanese company.
I've been reading about Follica for the last 15 years...
What is HM?
Some people are getting things mixed up. I strongly suggest you do some reading before posting statements like that.I've read about it... but the proclaimed costs ( 200,000 $ and more) unaffordable...

It's not like it's a widget that they can just churn out as many as they want. There are limits to how many people they will be able to serve. It's going to take years to ramp that up, so it's going to be expensive in the beginning.
Yeah, by 2050 maybe.
There is one major problem with that analogy. Other nations didn't have to go through a regulatory process before being able to copy America's nuclear technology. Companies that wish to compete with Tsuji will have to go through a regulatory process. They could have competition soon after in Japan, but in the rest of the world it is going to take a while.
