Masson's trichrome:


Also from Wikipedia:

Rete ridges ("rete tips") are epidermal thickenings that extend downward between dermal papillae.

I never ended up doing that as after my laser treatments I felt good enough about myself.

How many times you did the laser? What type of laser? How much did it help?

Vbeam. Three times. A lot but it's personal in the sense that what improvement was made was enough for me while it may not be enough for other people.

It's a no brainer that they are looking to see to which extent the hydrogel can help people. What's the point of coming up with it if they never intend to make any kind of progress in medicine?

Backed by dozens of studies and relatively low cost, it's of one those treatments that really earns 'Never hurts to try' I'm getting full face subcision this wednesday



Why did you decide against it?


Wow, I hope it makes a difference for you.


I decided against it just because I was happy with the results of the lasers. I mean I didn't really need any more improvement nor did I think subsicion would change anything in my case that was worth the money and time. I had reached a point where I was able to let it go mentally so... I just decided to move on.

How did you get those burns, if you don't mind me asking? I'm sorry to hear this happened to you.


i dont want to be a downer. like i said my face has 3rd degree burns i want it gone. it would change my life.

but it looks like the hydrogel hope is dying

How is successful defined in this context? Did the wounds in the pigs heal without any scarring?

I got info from 1 of gerecht team namely Michael Blachley regarding their dextran hydrogel..

Their result from the porcine test was successful. They are currently engaging the dextran hydrogel efficiency on wound that has been left open for 3/4/5 and so on days

I found this on her CV:


Edelman BR, Gordon AD, Radu A, Lim F, and Crombleholme TM. Elevated Baseline Expression of Transforming Growth Factor Beta-3 Relative to Transforming Growth Factor Beta-1 Correlates With a Period of Scarless Wound Repair in Gestational Mice. Journal of Surgical Research 100 (1): 275, 2001.


Wasn't Renovo/Juvista also fiddling around with these growth factors?

So you're saying you know better than the research scientists? They think they achieved scarless healing but you know better? lol.gif


I have been looking at the photos of the mice and the trials. You see here is the thing, some scar tissue does grow hair. I have areas of scars which have hair growth. Actualy lots of hair growth. NORMAL hair growth. After a number of treatments. Thing is my skin still looks uneven and with skin that is texturally and tone wise not as aesthetic as it was.


Here is where the human aspect comes into play. You can look at the mice and say yes there is hair growth and the scar doesn't look as noticeable. BUT i do see the hydrogel photo and the skin isnt perfect. It just has the important structures in place. I can see see the marks of the scar.

Well said.


To be frustrated is one thing, to start using this thread the way Maldition is, is something else. Nobody needs the kind of posting Maldition is doing and also seeing that fact that the admins of this site have been very clear to him in the past about the fact that they don't appreciate this kind of behavior and he's just going on regardless shows that he doesn't respect the admins enough and quite frankly also not the people who come to this thread to share and/or find information regarding this topic in which we are all genuinely interested.


Maldition, stop what you're doing, is my advice to you. People have been lenient in the past with you. Be grateful that you aren't yet banned and start following the thread in a dignified manner.


I'm sorry to see that you apparently suffer due to scarring but that doesn't mean that you can just post in this thread any way you like. I'm sure you understand that. And if you don't then I think the admins will explain it to you in the case you continue to post the way you have been.


Shape up man.


Why can't Maldition just be blocked? He doesn't contribute to anything positive here.

Thanks Golfpanther! It's appreciated.


Alright, so they've definitely started testing on pigs. Check this out:




And we now have a date that will reveal more information (one would think anyway) about how things are going; November 6th.


It's only going to be an 18 minute presentation (per the itinerary for the conference) so it might not be thorough but I'm sure we'll learn something about how it's progressing.

it's hydrogel dextran really revolutionary? nobody tolk no more about this, nothing comment non about pigs tests.


Actually, several very recent posts have discussed it. They're conducting the test with larger animals right now. When I talked to Dr. Sun he said he didn't expect them to publish those results, but he doesn't work at JHU so he could be wrong.


Hi golfpanther.


Why do you think it is that they won't publish the results of the tests on larger animals in the case Sun is right? Just wondering.


I'm not really sure. I went back and looked at the e-mail he sent me and this is what he said, verbatim:


I am not sure if there will be papers out from jhu on this project. You may try to talk to dr Harmon , dr Gerecht or even John fini.


So really, he's just speculating and not sure because he's no longer there. I've reached out to Harmon, Gerecht and Fini but haven't heard back from any of them as of yet. chuckstonchew was talking to Dr. Harmon a while ago though and the Facebook moderator has talked to Fini.


BTW, Sun is an extremely nice and responsive guy. I wish more people involved in this field were as forthcoming as him. He did say that he's continuing his work into scar free healing at Columbia University—where he now works.


It seems kind of strange to me if they didn't publish the results. Publishing them only seems to be in everyone's interest? But hey I'm just a layman.


I should check out Columbia university's website to see what they're working on.

I'm a pretty happy person but I'd definately be happier without what scarring I have. I'm not all messed up mentally because of it anymore though. But if I had a button I could press that would reverse the physical "damage done" I'd press it in an instant.


I'm sorry to hear that you still struggle emotionally to the extent that you do.


Anyone else excited that there's actually progress related to this hydrogel and regenerative medicine?


The day when this hydrogel, or whatever treatment years down the line heals my face into something that is smooth, is the day I'll be able to open myself back up to the world and start healing the deep emotional damage I have accumulated by living with this disfigurement.


Best wishes to all other sufferers out there. If it isn't this hydrogel that will save us, it will be some other treatment in the future. Regenerative medicine is coming!


I'll be proud to know the hell I lived through when I can look myself in the face and see a new person.

Getting over them is a good treatment. What also works wonders is not caring about them. I could go on but you get the idea.


For me laser treatments did help. But it isn't a miracle treatment and it only has a positive effect in certain ways.


And yes, ACell claims certain things it maybe shouldn't. rolleyes.gifsmile.png




Someone tried it and the results weren't what you'd hope they'd be.


Acell can only do so much for so many people, it seems.



Hey guys, 


can anyone give me an update on Acell? Has anyone tried it here yet?


I´ve found out it is available online already.. I just don´t know if it´s worth the money...


I´ve been trying to find updates in the forum but I´ve lost track around page 120:)






Thank you, Lapis lazuli


you have just saved me a lot of money smile.png But I actually expected that, it looked a little too sensational...


So what is the method of treating scars you recommend the most at the moment? Is there anything that works for you?

He says the work has implications not just for entire limb regrowth, but for "smaller, less ambitious" goals such as scar-less healing.


Finding a way to prevent scarring isn't exactly moderately ambitious plus aren't the two connected? If you can't stop scarring you won't be able to regenerate limbs.


Anyway, it's a nice article. Thanks for sharing, trendycat. The axolotyl looked very funny too, by the way.


Recent developments in limb regeneration and scar-less healing:



Here's hoping for a cure within 20 years.
