Dr Craig Ziering (Histogen) answered some community questions (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

posted by Stevie.Dee, 08.02.2011, 17:59

Without much further ado :

Q : Has there been an estimated cost for HSC injections?

A: No definite price yet but the plan would be to make it affordable to the masses!


Q: Is there any way to see photo results from the first trial?

A: Close up macroscopic pictures can be seen at


Q: wanted to know if having a hair transplant now will interfere with having Histogen injections in the future?

A: No , having a transplant now will not prevent you from receiving HSC injections in the future.The great thing is that HSC works on the recipient area and has nothing to do with the donor at this time . This should give new hope to all those that have poor or no donor hair available .


Q: I don`t know if any one at Histogen is taking taking questions now, but I`ve heard about `Pan-Asian` trials but aside from Singapore I haven`t heard of any other countries in Asia taking part in the trials. Which, if any, other countries are going to take part in the trials?

A: Right now Singapore but possibly Korea as well.


Q: Usual criticism and naysayer comments

A: You make valid points but the reality is the results are positive enough for at least 10 million dollors of additional funding to have been received to continue the work Histogen is doing.
I cant tell you that HSC is the answer but I am sure that this work will at least contribute to helping the "Scientific Hair community" come up with an answer and that is what research and trials are all about.


Q: I know you spoke about the 2 year trials so far and how hairs were still present after that time. If histogen does not do much as far as growth for some, will it at least guarantee no further hair loss? Did you notice this in pre trials?

A: I dont want to mislead you as this was not directly looked at ,however the study showed a net gain in terminal hairs and hair thickness. So a net gain can have 3 components : 1. New terminal Hairs 2. Reversal of miniaturizing hairs and 3. As you suggest , the prevention or slowing down of the progressive nature of hair loss.
Also the observation that HSC increased individual hair diameter is very significant from an overall aesthetic point of view.This has the potential to be very beneficial to women and men with overall thin hair and diffuse loss.


So have fun guys have fun
