Hello Gaz, if you read me, any update or impression?

I am considering going for another big session and buy me another 3 to 4 years peace of mind.
My first HST framed me back and the result is still there after a bit more that two years.

Gaz, any update? how does your hair look now?
Do you feel thicker? fuller? OK under spotlights and day light?

I am contemplating HST myself. How full did you find your transplanted hair grew? Some results seem vastly superior to others and am not quite certain what to ask for. I am looking for a conservative hairline (mine has always been high) but mainly just to widen the widows peak to a more appealing level.

Right now I can get away with slightly longer hair without it looking strange but would very much like enough of a hairline to have a buzz cut of a short length.

I too am curious if a Gaz update though but he hasn't been here for a while now and I'd love to see the results of the last procedure.

I'd also love an update Gaz.

Your case is the closest thing we have to a cure via HST. :)

I'm going back for my 3rd procedure in two weeks time and I can't wait. This procedure in my opinion will give me some much needed density.

caddarik79
11-22-2014, 09:47 AM
Me too, and I also, unfortunately, think that HST is the only treatment so far that can bring a fair bridging until an actual cure pops up!!! at high costs...

That's why, Gaz, if you can read us, and let us see your amazing improvements?

Thank you.

sorry guys, kinda of got a bit tired of the whole anti-hasci, whether it's right or wrong I just lost interest in arguing about it.

My result up to now is decent. I still need to increase density in the recipient, which I may do! I only had 1200 HST on my last procedure, so it was never going to make a significant difference from where I was before this, however I can personally tell the difference and couldn't be happier with it.

Donor looks pretty much the same as it did after my 4th HST.

How are you guys getting on, any plans?

11-29-2014, 10:28 PM
Doing great, planning a second procedure somewhere next year. The fx rates are not in my favour right now so i am waiting a bit.

Gc do you think you will post some pics anytime soon? If you dont have time at the moment, would be really cool if you can post an update when you hit the 8-10 month mark post-op.

Also, i know it may be the wrong place to ask the question. Any of you ever asked hasci about body hair transplants? I surprisingly have very straight chest hair, i have wondered if i want to maximize amount of hair that i can put on my head in the long run, is it possible to have some chest hair transplanted with hst. To make it more natural, implant it in a lets say 1:5 ratio. Its 16% more and i don't think it would be a material visual difference, giving its pretty straight and similar color.

Hey Gaz, I got you on the fact that you were tired about the neverending argument on HASCI, it became ridiculous and so much repetition!!!

I just bought a car, and booked an exotic trip, so if i go, it's more for next year!
Your result will even get better in another three months, if i am correct with the full result timeline.

Am more and more convinced it is the only (even if super expensive) way to bridge and an acceptable hair situation until a cure comes out.

Pictures would be nice but if you don't have time for it right now, not a problem.
what about iron man and Arashi?

LOL :) How are you guys doing ? I still visit the forums now and then but I lost interest. I realize we're still years away from a cure so what's the point of being here every day. Besides I've proven (far) beyond reasonable doubt that HASCI is a scam with things like this: http://www.hasci-exposed.com/partial.html. Some people will always believe, no matter what proof you show them, cause they just don't want to accept the harsh reality that we have nothing more than 2 scary meds with tons of potential side effects and prefer to live a dream. A dream where some shady doctors have cured hairloss but don't care to show the proof.

I think you have actually proven about as much as HASCI have proven :)

You haven't been able to prove that there is no net growth as far as I can see. Neither has Hasci proved so, which of course is disappointing.

It's also misleading to say 'Hasci is a scam'. There is some things which simply don't add up with Hasci's claims, however there are some elements of their procedure which they claim and they are true, so to simply say they are a scam is just wrong.

Like I've said before I think there is a small net growth of hair in HASCI, nowhere near their claims, but nevertheless superior to FUE which is probably closer to -20% net loss of hair.

FWIW, I feel very jaded and worn-down too. About most things hair loss related. About 3 years ago, it looked like we were on the brink of exciting developments (not an actual cure, but a sign that we weren't that far away from new treatments). 2 years ago, well, we had that study to do with Prostaglandins and their role in hair loss, which looked like it could lead somewhere. Even a year ago, there were things to grab our attention, with some of the new stuff like the mass dermarolling experiment, the brief burst of excitement around Pilox when the photos leaked… Now, it looks like the pipeline is empty, everything's a bust, the next best hope of a regular treatment, CB-03-01, looks like a load of empty hype, if it ever reaches the stage of being a viable product. It all feels so bloody bleak at the moment, really, we don't seem to be nearer an actual new type of treatment than we were in 2001.

I have proven that they sell nonsense. They explain in their thesis how they supposedly regenerate hair: they claim to do so by leaving part of the follicle behind that can regenerate itself using stem cells. Yet the photo's clearly show that that's untrue: the WHOLE follicle is taken away. So if no tissue is left behind (like they claim in their thesis), there's nothing that can regenerate. Really, it's simple as that.


It's also misleading to say 'Hasci is a scam'.
I don't think there's a word more fitting for selling something for a lot of money that doesn't work.

@ Gaz, how many more procedures do you think you will undergo?
and did they tell you how many maximum you could do without affecting your donor ?

Am really curious about your result.
If you do one more soon, where would you put the grafts?

I'm 100% sure we are going to see regeneration from pilofocus. The science is behind it. Dr. Gardner confirmed that what he's doing should work. Furthermore, there are studies done that show it works to some degree and acell should increase the percent regenerating. Dr. Cole has said the reason he isn't able to get consistent regeneration from acell is because it leaks, if he had a way to prevent it from leaking he'd get it all the time to some highly beneficial degree. Therefore, with Dr. Wesley administering it underneath the skin, there won't be any leaking. Hence, consistent donor regeneration will follow.

i don't buy the leakage part. today there are compounds to seal wounds instantly. for example some gel-like substance which could be used to seal the wounds after inserting the acell into the donor extraction sites. also why not just wrap the head into foil for 2 or 3 days so that acell can do its magic.
it can't be that difficult.

Gaz has gone quiet, hopefully he is just so happy with married life and his hair that he doesn't even come on here any more.

What about IronMan, I asked him in another post if he had been for his 3rd procedure yet, but heard nothing back. Strange that we aren't hearing anything back from him either. Anybody heard from him?

IronMan always seemed so positive about Hasci...

IronMan went 3 times to HASCI, right ? Since he's always been shooting photo's of his results and been doing calculations, by now he must have a final verdict on HASCI. Either his photo's are now 100% proof that it's all a lie, or he has 100% proof that it actually works (LOL yeah right). So, him not posting here anymore, what do you think that means ? He was always SO determined to prove me wrong. Then he finally has the results and ... just disappears. Any rationale thinking person would come to the same conclusion here as to what must have been the result.

Hi mate, I'm still here :p

Been busy of late. I can't even remember the last time I checked my donor with a mirror or camera in all honesty. I'm using a grade 2 clipper all over these days, so I'm not sure what that will reveal but I can take some pics. Not sure when I'll get round to that at the moment, taking pics does require some time!

I've got no immediate plans for another HST due to other commitments, but later in the year I will decide on that.

Good to see the same old names here too, c5000, cocacola and Arashi.

BTW I still believe there is a NET gain of hair, I can't remember the exact figure I quoted over the last year or so, but I think it was around 20%

Hey Gaz,

Good to read from you!!! How is your young dad's life?
No problem, I'm glad you are busy with "real life" stuffs.

Same here, good times, good travels, projects etc... but still monitoring the forum cause the only place where I trust I can follow some interesting threads!

Am curious of your results of course and if you will go for more. Am considering it, eventhough the last Arashi finding is kind of annoying "Saunders going to the competition because of a depleted donor".

Let's not start again the neverending debate. I am just interested in following the multiple HST patients, like you (a succesful one in my opinion).
Happy that you are still keen to show us and no rush or urgence.

I will travel to Asia this summer, but am wondering if I would not consider going in Maastricht or Amsterdam at the end of the year...(am a bit more like Arashi on this, I wait the maximum, I can hold it for now, it's OK, but still very hungry for proofs of very good transformation with multiple sessions)

Hi Gaz

Great to hear from you. You must be pretty pleased with your result if you just clip down to a grade 2 and get on with things.

Whenever you get a chance to take some photos, that would be great.

Have you heard from IronMan by any chance? He has disappeared and I wonder if he even went for his 3rd HST...

Dr Gho is starting to talk in interview about controlling the multiplication, and make 5 hairs out of 1 on a regular procedure and not 4 there, then 7, then 3, then 9...

It's also been a veeeeeeeryyyyyyyyyyyyyy long time that you guyz claim that he will get backfired with cheating and that it will all be public and??? so far?

Means to me that your claims are not more valid than his talks about the future...

He seems to stick to his point, no matter all the controversial moves towards them...

Am waiting for your "it will be public sooner or later" :-)

04-28-2015, 01:03 AM
and as mentioned earlier in this thread about Gaz results, let's please stop the neverending discussion about "true or not"... we have 27.495 posts of arguments and fights about that...
It is OK, I'm fine with both claims... the most important to me is "how to deal with hair loss and best options to bridge until the cure if any".
If you were so sure about him being a cheater, you would move on and disregard threads mentioning his name.

I give it the benefit of the doubts, there are fishy moves from them and also to much certitudes in you with no effects since they are still growing and developping (and trust me, they have a fair database of clients, you could have found allies to go to court if they were soooo bad and so much cheating).

So, keep your certitudes for the threads where we argued about it, here it's a thread about Gaz results, hopefully, our friend will soon show us some pics post HST 5.

I would never try to shut HASCI down, because, what if they bring the 1 hair = 5? or what if they really have it in the pipeline?

IF they were so fake and not legit, they would have closed their door, drawning in a sea of complaints and lawsuits...

Arashi

IF they were so fake and not legit, they would have closed their door, drawning in a sea of complaints and lawsuits...

Who would sue them ? First of all it's almost impossible for the average consumer to find out if it worked. How would you do that ? Secondly, IF you found out it didnt work (like I did but also like Ben Saunders did for example), would you sue them ? Hell no. A lawsuit is a horrible thing. I've sued somebody before (who stole money from me, about $100.000), it's tons of stress, high lawyer fees and in the end what will you get ? It's really not worth it for such a relatively low amount of money.

The only option was the central organisation for marketing in the Netherlands, the "Reclame code commissie". A group of Dutch doctors and hair specialists went to them 2 times to have HASCI stop advertising but the Reclame Code Commissie ruled in favor of HASCI twice (purely based on the argument that they had something published in a scientific magazine, EVEN though the magazine admitted they never checkec HASCI's article, quite unbelievable IMHO). The organisation in general only rules 2 times, after that you can't go to them again to ask for a ruling. Two times is the max. So what other option do people have ? Nothing. And that's why HASCI still continues doing business.

caddarik79
04-29-2015, 06:58 AM
who is wrong, who is right?

I still believe that spending time on television defending their technique and keeping on repeating that they are working on improving it to the point of creating more than one hair from one hair is a bit suicidal if they are fraud!

the scandal behind it even if not yet there, is huge!

They always make the difference with FUE, saying tht they are the only one to multiply hair.

I know we had that debate already, and am not denying the fishy or blurry zones...

Still, I trust it's the best option so far and I trust there might come a day where the cure "multiplying hair and reimplanting them" might come from them in the end... from the so criticized Dr Gho.

They said it in the last episode, one procedure gives 35% coverage, two give 70% (and to be honest, I have the impression they are not bullshitting, I am sure I would have a very decent 70% coverage with a second procedure on my front)

Look at Guido : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mnjy0FtZ2jg

starts around 11:00

For who can afford it, isn't it the best? I and you probably would have a Guido situation with another one or two procedures max!!! and then, relax for another 5, 6 years and see what Gho says about 1hair becoming 5.

Even if there was no regeneration i agree that HST is the best in term of donor area......... But is it the best in term of recipient area ?

The main things about recipient area is the angle of the transplanted hair and the density which i think hasci lack in both departments.
I had my HST and im happy and satisfied with the donor area as it still looks virgin even when i shave down to 0. However, im not that satisfied with the recipient area as the hair grow in different angles sticking up instead of laying flat or following my existing hair angles which makes it look unnatural unless i shave it very short or grow it very long to hide or control the direction of the hair, but anything in between looks a bit unnatural.

Even with a good traditional hair transplant where the hairs are placed at the right angles to match existing hairs, hair never seems to lay flat as it exits the scalp like natural non transplanted hair does at inbetween lengths

Yes, the dude made an FUT in the 90's when already balding so I assume that he would have turned NW 6 without interventions, check his HST video in Youtube, you see the situation.

He looks OK now, doesn't he?

hmm. ok, he had 2 FUTs and 3 HSTs.
yes, he looks ok now.

but that doesn't mean that HST is the cure or that normal FUE procedures wouldn't do the same. the FUTs gave him already a good amount of grafts, too.

summary: do 5 hair transplants and let your scalp be destroyed by FUT scars, then you can be a solid NW2.5 with a bit luck.

caddarik79
08-29-2015, 05:32 AM
Yeah, that's why I put it on the Gaz 5HST thread!
Because I think that if G Joling had had 5 HST instead of 2 FUT and 3 HST, his result would be even better (don't forget they spent a lot of grafts in covering his FUT scars, he could have used them for the top).

What I mean is that for whoever is really pissed with his NW situation, there is a way to keep some decent situation and a kind of normal life!
Expensive tough... but hair transplant his the most unfairly priced surgery.

So why did you assume that he is not using concealers in the pic? Most people who use concealers use them everywhere not just on TV set..... People use conceleaers so people around them think that they have good hair.... not just the ones watching TV.

if you ask HASCI for another procedure to thicken your first HST they will recommend against it and tell you clearly that it will not make much difference and you should use your grafts on other areas or preserve them for future bald spots.

Even with a good traditional hair transplant where the hairs are placed at the right angles to match existing hairs, hair never seems to lay flat as it exits the scalp like natural non transplanted hair does at inbetween lengths

This is not true, a good HT doctor would be able to exactly follow the natural hair direction whether the hair lay flat forward or spike up.... and this is the only way you can have a natural result. Otherwise it is just not natural looking and your head will be showing clearly an obvious unnatural and terrible hair transplant.
For example in attached pic, the patient natural hair lay flat forward.... Look how the transplanted hair follow exactly the natural angles and all of them are implanted in the same angles which looks very good and natural and noone would be able to tell that he had an HT no matter what the length of his hair is.....
Look how the angles of the hairline are perfectly done as well as the angles of the temple hair.......
If a clinic promise you a "natural" result, then following exactly the natural hair direction is the ONLY way to achieve that.... If they can't do that then they shouldn't promise you a "natural" result.

Hey, long time since I was last online here.

I was thinking I hadn't posted any photos for what seems like years!

As said previously I usually buzz it to a grade 2 and it feels good around that length, however I've gotten lazy of late, I think this might be the longest it's ever been, so I snapped a couple of crappy pics with my camera phone: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtZbVzz0gZcaok_TLPdKd0tnea30.

I'll be shaving it tomorrow, but thought some would appreciate these sort of photos rather than just seeing the buzz versions all the time.

When it's short it looks better IMO, however others (usually older ppl) tell me to grow it. F**k that.

I won't be getting any more procedures in the coming months/year, after that we'll see maybe. Way too busy trying to live life right now with a 2yr old and a 9 month old baby, it's complicated enough without worrying about how many follicles I have :)

Is there any progress in the hair transplant industry?

Hope all is well with my old btt guys.

Hey Gaz, how are you doing ? Good to hear from you. I remember having had this discussion with you about how I thought you had over depleted your donor and you said it still looked natural. I was wondering how do you feel about that now ? Personally I think you went over the line and had at least 1 HST too many, but maybe you feel different about that yourself.

Regardless, one should always see surgery like this in light of the initial situation. And man, I must say, you've come a LOOONG way. I remember you said how you had gained your life back and I'm sure that's right (although I still think it would have looked much better if you had done 1-2 HST's less so your donor would have looked natural and healthy, where you've now gotten yourself that moth-eaten/overdepletion look). I hope you don't mind me using those words but you know I've warned you several times that this would be the result, so I'm not going to sugar-coat it now. BUT again, reality is too that it the overall result looks SO much better than it was before that I also think you shouldn't worry too much about it.

About the state of the hairloss industry, I must admit I haven't been watching developments closely but man, it just seems history repeating all over again and I think it's going to be like this for quite some time. But then again, I think the whole scamming haydays are a bit behind us now, all those Dr Nigam/HASCI like buzz about hair cloning, hair regenerating, stem cells etc, it seems to be way less than a few years ago.

BTW, the final results for the HASCI analysis, the 100% proof of its scam (or not, lol), are almost in, just watch that other thread :)

hey arashi, regarding latest treatments with tsuji, follica, etc.: u should have a look at "H"L"T". that's the place where news happen now, and in future.

I really thought by now this shit would be cured!

I know what you mean about my donor, however the mistake I made was having the first couple of hsts harvested from those 1 inch strips. Would have looked much more evenly harvested had my entire donor area been used equally over all the different procedures, but I'm not too fussed tbh.

I'm 100% sure we are going to see regeneration from pilofocus. The science is behind it. Dr. Gardner confirmed that what he's doing should work. Furthermore, there are studies done that show it works to some degree and acell should increase the percent regenerating. Dr. Cole has said the reason he isn't able to get consistent regeneration from acell is because it leaks, if he had a way to prevent it from leaking he'd get it all the time to some highly beneficial degree. Therefore, with Dr. Wesley administering it underneath the skin, there won't be any leaking. Hence, consistent donor regeneration will follow.

FearTheLoss, you say that the science backs up donor regeneration with Pilofocus - could you please explain why the science behind Pilofocus supports donor regeneration?

Also, you said that Dr. Gardner indicated what Dr. Wesley's doing should achieve donor regeneration - can you please provide a link to Dr. Gardner saying that?

Also, you said there are studies showing that Pilofocus achieves some donor regeneration - can you please post a link to that study?
