    Default Why say it

    hair loss expert Dr Marcovici

    If the statement is true, then what is the point of him, Shouldn't he be talking about Propecia and Regaine, all be it not growing new follicles, but they may still be live after hair fall out?

    Once itís gone its gone Ė is it true you canít grow new follicles?

    This is true, Iím afraid. The best you can do is try to prevent losing more. But it's not the whole story. In the next ten to fifteen years, it is almost a certainty that stem cell research will lead experts to grow hair follicles in a lab and then used to boost the thinning scalp. Itís an exciting time, but itís not quite here yet!

    You'd like to think someone in his position would be just a little bit more encouraging wouldn't you?

    Why bother about something that 'might' come earliest in 10-15 years? By then even the 20 something's among us will be hitting our 40's with a horseshoe on on our head.
    Don't get me wrong; I'll be ecstatic if the day ever comes that I'll look in the mirror and have a full head of hair. But the past few months I came to the conclusion that my biggest fear is that if that moment ever comes, I'll only see a slightly younger-looking old guy and look back in regret about wasting my actual young years.

    Exactly. Let's live in the present. If you're genuinely interested in hairloss research, power to ya - I personally find it moderately interesting - but, holding your breath and crossing your fingers about a treatment a decade and a half out is silly. Not only that, but imagine how expensive a brand new treatment is going to be. Forking over the amount people do for HTs still blows my mind.
