Default Does Histogen/Aderans/Replicel awaken follicles or just thicken damaged ones?

Can somebody answer this? I have seen a lot of arguments for and against but
nothing definitive.

Is it a case of we dont know yet?

Thanks

Aderans and Replicel do neither, it is new hair that grows. They take excisting hair cells, multiply them and inject them back in the scalp.

At least that is how it is supposed to work.

Ah ok - so you are saying the dormant follicles stay dormant with no chance of regeneration? So the hair pops up from the newly injected cells?

Thanks

Not sure we know that yet. If it's out there I'd love to see it so apologies if I'm wrong. Replicel were saying they believed the cells migrate to dormant or miniturised follicles and rejuvenate them. However it might be both follicular neogenesis and waking dormant/reviving highly miniturised follicles.

I'm sure you are correct, i thought replicel worked the same way as aderans, but i didn't check it proparly

Tbh Alf I'm not sure they know for sure themselves. Would be pretty cool if it did both.

That is wrong. The injected Dermal Papilla/Dermal Sheath Cup cells migrate to hair follicles and recruit them. Both type of cells have the ability to repair cells. "Sick" hair follicles get repaired, but also new hair follicles will grow.
Replicel and Aderans basically are working the same way.
