Its ridicolous how you manage to completly flood this topic with shittons of spam. Nothing will change if you repeat 1000 times how bad you feel or how much hope you have.
We have like 1 interesting information per 10 sites because you guys just cant stop whining like little childs.
I can see how it's frustrating to see all the pointless posts that you have to sift through in order to get to the ones where there's actual info. If you go to this thread for actual updates I can see how that's annoying. This thread has always been one in part where sometimes people vent (or seem to be venting).
Like I said in my previous post, Gemstone has already clearly stated they aim for the hydrogel to be used for people with acne scars. Maybe they didn't type "acne scars" on their website but it's unambiguously stated.
A scar free wound healing product is inherently something which in part has to do with producing cosmetic improvement.
They have mentioned using it for scarring caused by other traumas. For instance here:
Our primary development studies are centered on our novel dextran-based hydrogel for scar-free wound healing. Our hydrogels are produced from original protocols and are highly tunable, meaning they can easily be tailored for specific wound healing applications.
I think he means that Gemstone may not have considered using Hydrogel for cosmetic purposes. Gemstone only mentioned how the Hydrogel is able to heal 3rd degree burns, but they have not mentioned using it for other purposes like cosmetic (acne scars). This whole thread might be for nothing unless we know if the Hydrogel can be catered for people with acne scarring, and other scars. Honestly, this speculating on the potential of the Hydrogel is just getting us nowhere. I would like the hard facts from a reptuable person from Gemstone as well.
Also, achieving regenerated skin after a burn wound isn't just done for functional reasons. It's also for cosmetic reasons. The cosmetic side might not be the first priority but it's without a doubt part of it all.
The basic principle of wound healing is always the same. So why would something enable the body to regenerate skin only when the damage is caused by one specific thing? It only matters so much what caused the damage. The point is, there is no skin where at one point there was and from that point the body starts fixing things. That's always the same with every wound, isn't it? Whether the loss of skin was caused by an incision or fire or whatever you can think of.
What sooner matters is the location of the wound. Depending on where the wound is, it's a greater or smaller challenge for the surgeon to go in and do what needs to be done. That's sooner a "worry", I'd say. But the hydrogel (should it work) basically just does what it does regardless of the cause of injury.
Also, for those of you who actually think the hydrogel (should it work) can "only" fix a third degree burn wound but not acne scarring (just listen to how that sounds) they mention on their website that they are currently designing a trial for the gel's ability to achieve the same results when it comes to "acute wounds". These are defined as follows:
Obviously a certain amount of time is needed to verify that something is safe to use... Perhaps the process can be sped up but neither you nor I can make any real statements about that as we don't know enough about it.
A lot of people are working very hard every day to achieve something. I see this also in the hospital I work in. These people are working very hard, OK? All these negative comments from people like us aren't what they deserve.
What i hate about is when you are scarred , people will see you as scarface monster.
Damn, come fast any solutions!
I can't tell to what extent you are being sincere. But when you have acne scarring people don't see you that way. You might feel/think they do but that's just because you are insecure/afraid.
You've got to give people some credit. Many people will be offended if you were to say to their face that you think they see you and think "What a monster".
I spend all goddamn day lying on the goddamn couch watching goddamn TMNT and each goddamn hour I look at my goddamn ugly face. I hate this goddamn life...
That's not good. Once again, you are missing out on things while there is no need. Your acne scarring doesn't get in between you and relationships with women. It's your insecurity. You can only do so much about your scars (at the moment) but your attitude you can work on. If you were to lose the negative attitude you'll find that there are plenty of opportunities to meet/date women. I'm assuming you'd rather be out there dating women than being inside watching Teenage mutant ninja turtles.
The body prioritizes survival. It just wants to avoid infection of the wound so closing it as fast as possible is what it aims for and that's achieved by formation of scarring.
An Australian woman (who's name escapes me) is researching right now if the "shape" is stored in the brain. I've posted a link to a video in which she speaks of this pages back. I'll see if I can repost it.
It was Fiona Wood. Here's a link to a page with a link to that video I mentioned:
so tired, just when i thought it would work..stp ...
Why do from time to time some people feel the need to say that the hydrogel that's still being worked on has failed?
Is it to startle the people who are following this thread for updates? Is it a way to release negative energy? Is it just the need to bitch and moan? Is it a cry for attention? Is it so-called troll behavior? Is it a way to fight boredom? Or is it so that there's just no reason at all?
Either way, it's stupid and it should stop. In my opinion.
