The manual labor involved with a transplant, not only inhibits the number of patients they can treat, but costs a great deal of money. You need a team of well trained, expensive med techs and dr to put in a full day for one patient. That's why they cost so much.

    Histogen will probably be 1-2K for a treatment.
    It will be 5k max IMO

    The Alchemist: you're right bro. Histogen will not need to charge us nearly as much as these doctors do for a hair transplant. Histogen's treatment will be easy to administer, non-invasive, will not be time consuming, and will not require multiple assistants to perform it. And since Histogen's treatment will much more appealing to many more hair loss sufferers, they will not need to charge an arm and a leg just to make a profit. Hair transplants only appeal to like 7% of hair loss sufferers and I think that Histogen's treatment will raise that number exponentially. Also, Gail Naughton and her staff really seem to be ethical and caring people so I don't think they would excessively overcharge us anyway.

    JJJJrS and Kiwi: you guys are right too. We shouldn't be worried about price right now. We should just be happy that there is a non-invasive option that REGROWS hair as opposed to simply RE-LOCATING hair.

    I hope they can launch this procedure for equivalent price of laser eye surgery, with similar walk-in, walk-out out-patient arrangements. It'd be truly mass market then - think of all the people who'd never contemplate a HT in a million years who'd be up for this. As long as they weren't squeamish about needles.

    I wouldnt call it vanity, it is MUCH more than that. It is your *FACE* thats affected by this bitch of a condition. It is your self esteem, your confidence, your appearance, the public's perception of you and your happiness. Its not vanity, that is just a copout for anyone who hasnt gone through hairloss themselves.

    Subjects receiving HSC in the temporal recession, which is known to be more difficult to treat than other areas of hair loss, saw marked improvement in terminal hair count, with a mean increase of 22.6% at 12 weeks and 25.2% at the 24 week time point.
    how the hell do you get 20% increase in TERMINAL HAIR COUNT? That spot was bald wasn't it. How do you come up with that number?

    Histogen will be in the hundreds range IMO as that's cheap enough so that every hairloss sufferer can afford it once every few years. Once you get into the $1000's, you lose customers.

    EDIT: because this product is not a fullout reversal as well, it seems, so far, to only help with more moderate loss although I'm not sure what happens if you continue to inject in different spots.
    I know, I was only using a 'worst-case' scenario. I mean, who knows what the actual price is, but I've already stated in previous threads that I'm willing to drop cash on any treatment that isnt an HT or Finasteride. So far, this is looking absolutely amazing considering whats available today. I really do hope they get a speedy approval process but that I'm sure will be another 1-3 years or maybe more if they hit some kind of roadblock. But its obvious their technique works so shouldnt be too long.

    With myself though, I don't want to wait another 3 years and am already planning a visit to go just for my hairline (Gho because despite what naysayers say, id like to have donor hair regrow and not be limited by it). This route should give me more options in the future as opposed to FUE. Thank god Im only about an NW3 and can easily go back to NW1.

    Considering fin has some pretty crazy reported side effects...I'll give Histogen the upper hand on this. If the same results are seen with the two drugs, yet Histogen yields the results faster, as the data suggest, why isn't Histogen a better alternative than fin? It'll mean we'll probably have to walk into our local Plastic Surgeon's office, elect to have this in-office procedure done, pay him, and walk out.

    Also, finasteride has been noted to be a teratogen, meaning if you and your wife want to have a baby, you'll have to stop taking the drug, otherwise it'll impact the development of your child. Stopping the drug = return of shedding.
