I am using brown sugar rubs in the shower, and remoisturizing with olive oil massaged into the scars for several minutes after stepping out of the shower (i do this before going to bed) and I'm seeing results from that. I have made some of my scars improve and regrow hair from pieces of castor oil soaked dye free cotton wraps left on them for several days at a time with the only breaks from the oil wrap being when i go out or take a shower .


That is very interesting. Care to elucidate? You actually had hairless scar tissue that now grows hair? Terminal or vellus? How sure are you that they weren't there before?

Welcome to the forums, dextranlady, and thanks for the update!


Don't mind maldition. There are a lot of bipolar, crazy people around here. One moment they will be cheering loudly for the hydrogel. The next they get desperate and hostile. You'll get used to it..


As for testing the hydrogel on ourselves, no, that wouldn't be illegal. Patent protection only prohibits commercial use. That being said, I think it would be best to wait for larger scale clinical trials before we do any experimentations on ourselves.

see y'al again in 2020

I don't think you need wait to 2020 to see the therapy

From your mouth to God's ears my friend! Allah ho Akbar!!!  


Sorry, but what the fuck is this? Are you having a laugh?


Seriously, keep on topic or get out. This isn't a fucking game.

Panos, your theory is interesting. If I remember things right though, I believe I've seen a study testing that hypothesis by letting a fetus heal outside of the womb. I think the result was that it didn't matter though, i.e. that the fetus healed scarlessly anyway.


My guess would be that the main mechanism of action of the hydrogel is that it promotes cell motility. Without a scaffold to move in, fibroblasts will be restricted to the periphery of the wound. As fibroblasts can't move to the center of the wound, the layout of new collagen fibers will get messed up. The movement of cells are always affected by the extracellular matrix/their surroundings, a phenomenon known as 'contact guidance'.

As for fetuses and why they don't heal with a scar (for some time period), their granulation tissue is different from adults and probably works better as a scaffold.

LOLOLOL God people's desire to hope is absolutely astounding. Don't you people think that if this technology showed any real promise the military would just set up an instant fund prove the efficacy of this technology like several months ago!!?? They'd even circumvent any FDA rules, I mean it would have happened. You do realize the power of what this would mean. It's akin to like a cure for AIDS or CANCER --that's the magnitude of this find. 




Go trolling somewhere else. Seriously. You have obiously no idea how these institutions work (keyword = bureaucracy)
