    I’ve been having issues with that crap too and these random “You won a google prize” ads keep popping up.

    Anyway, yea they said earlier around September that they were purchasing that facility and doin some renovations on it. They liked it because it provided them a very clean environment (since it used to be some kind of medical testing facility I think) and they wanted to make it their HQ too.

    Also there’s no worries with further FDA trials because they didn’t have to go through FDA trials to begin with. They were able to register and quickly be approved by the FDA because it’s all autologous and homologous factors they’re using. They are doing human trials basically just on their own because they want to “prove” to the world that this is real.

    All of that is great, but the only thing I’d be worried about is if they’d be able to manipulate results in some way since they’re conducting their own. I think the FDA is overseeing their trials is what I’ve heard and the burn centers utilizing their product have the right to provide their own results excluding PolarityTE from those so hopefully there’s no tricks such as angle lighting, shading, pic manipulation etc..

    Wow if they wouldn't have to go to trials for hair loss either this would be the best news ever. I guess we need some sort of official confirmation they passed the hurdles to get the hair loss derivative product working before getting hyped but it's really hard not to get excited. I wonder if they'd be up to doing an interview with the admin. I don't think there's anyway as a community we could help, considering they probably don't need any money.

    Does this company have any direct competitor?

    Yes, it happen also when you sent private message, it autoedit some words and change it to "Telogen Effluvium " . Pretty annoying by the way.

    As I told a previous poster, you probably won’t get much out of them on the “hairy” side of things other than it does regenerate hair bearing skin, but I believe that translates from the biopsy so hair from your forearm would probably have the same properties such as diameter and thickness if it was placed on your head. To me, he just didn’t want to release too much info like the approach they’re taking to “optimize those derivative products” because it’s probably still being experimented with in their R & D Department.

    In our phone conversation, Swanson said that the hair regenerated in swine were **Terminal** so they are very aware of how the follicular side of things should work.

    They have Sunogel I guess which I believe gets rid of one excision making it a little less invasive if successful, but they aren’t close to commercializing anything and I’m not sure if they would have to go through trials.

    Other than that, they are alone as far as the burn market goes because for a long time, skin grafting was the gold standard to treat burn victims. This works similar to taking a skin graft with the benefits of both split-thickness grafting (shitty quality skin but can be expanded to cover large areas) and full-thickness skin grafting (high quality skin that can regenerate very well but can’t be expanded.) So in other words, you can take some high quality skin (full-thickness graft) and send it in where they can then expand it (split-thickness benefit) to cover larger areas once the SkinTE construct has been made.

    I guess I'm just confused why we can't take a strip from our head and just make enough skin with hair and transplant that hair onto our heads. But they are the professionals. I'm sure they have their reasons.

    Got the same question over here... Maybe the skin has to be cultured somewhere to expand etc?
    Someone already said that they don't give us information about if the expanded skin does mutiply the hairs too or if the hairs are limited.
    Guess we'll have to contact those guys or email bomb them

    I think it would be worth asking them just the simple question of if they observed more hair generated in the greater area than there were from the initial biopsy indicating that they can multiply.

    They can’t create the hairs in vitro because they utilize the skins own natural healing process so they have to apply the paste as they call it and allow it to undergo part of the host’s healing process.

    1. Biopsy is taken
    2. Biopsy sent to Polarity
    3. Their 3D Platform Technology used to expand biopsy by converting to a paste form.
    4. Paste sent back
    5. Paste applied like icing on a cake onto the wound.
    6. Dressing applied on top of paste.
    7. Natural healing process sprouts follicles and begins regenerating the skin.

    But what about the penultimate step? Sounds like it is in vitro regeneration.

    I really want polarityte to just come and just pull the rug out from all these other companies with a treatment for hairloss. They have an investor/partnership thing on the 8th and 9th of January. Maybe they'll find a company to help with the hairloss thing.

    Guys sadly I have a FUT scar from a failed hair transplant years ago. Do you think that with this tech I could get it fixed and be able to shave without people noticing it?

    Polar Bearization? Yea I guess it could be considered in vitro, but without the host, the hair doesn’t mature and cycle. In fact without the host the only thing that SkinTE would serve as is some nice puddy to squeeze and watch it slime in between your fingers.

    Not right now with this method unless you want an additional scar. You could try microneedling. I got some personal success stories from people saying their skin appearance improved a lot. Would still be a hairless scar until you get FUE into it though or unless follica solves it in the future or Tsuji gives us a rockstar’s haircut

    Give me back density and my hairline, and I’ll gladly take a 2-3cm scar on the back of my head with a smile and a chub!

    Depending on the size of the scar with this method I would trade it for a FUT scar.

    Fuck these guys will save our asses faster than we might think:

    Thank you for your inquiry about SkinTE™. SkinTE is a human cellular and tissue-based product derived from a patient’s skin and is intended to repair, reconstruct, replace, or supplement that patient’s skin tissue/integument. Whether an individual patient’s particular condition may be appropriate for treatment with SkinTE™ is a medical decision to be determined in consultation with a licensed and trained physician. Currently, a derivative product of SkinTE is in development with the goal of delivering a solution for people in need of hair restoration, including androgenic alopecia. We will provide updates on the development progress as appropriate. For additional information about SkinTE™, please refer to our website.”
