  1. hydrocortisone + pramoxine will not do anything for scars. Hydrocortisone is an anti-inflammatory/itching agent and pramoxine is a topical pain releiver - makes the combination cream great for anal itching! As someone mentioned early hydrocortisone can "thin the skin" with prolonged use. Tretinoin and reitnoids speed up the cycle/turnover of skin cells. The theory is this rapid turnover will in a sense make scars fade faster ...so they may soften them a bit ...however it's impossible to say
  2. Good luck man. Thanks for keeping us updated.
  3. Just flipping through the new PDFs Acell has posted on their site ... I thought this was particularly interesting in the amputated finger patient leaflet: During Healing, Will My Finger Increase in Length? Using the powder will not guarantee added finger length. However, studies indicate that your wound may heal without scarring. Disappointed that the length may not increase ...however that last sentence is ALL we need to happen. If Acell can regenerate dermal tissue we are set. Dear rese
  4. THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY! IM KINDA SCARED TO TAKE ACCUTANE. IVE HEARD IT WORKS BUT MESSES YOU UP IN OTHER WAYS. THE MAIN SIDE EFFECT I FEAR IS HAIRLOSS AND DEPRESSION. I ALREADY FEEL DEEPRESSED AND IM SCARED THIS MAY ADD TO IT. IM ALSO SCARED OF LOOSING MORE HAIR. RETIN A ALREADY DONE THIS TO ME AND ACCUTANE I SUPPOSE COULD WORSEN IT. A HEAD WITH A FEW STRANDS LEFT AND PUSTULAR CYSTIC ACNE. WHAT A SIGHT THAT WILL BE! DID ACCUTANE HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS ON YOU? LIKE HAIRLOSS ETC.. DID ACCUTANE
  5. Did the placebo group have subsicion? I'm so happy it worked for you. It certainly holds promise. I think if there was ever a placebo controlled study done that compared isolagen and silicon microdropet and isolagen equals or beats out silicon I think I'd def have isolagen done.
  6. I think once it receives US FDA approval it will be come more widely available which will lead to a price drop. Hopefully they have improved the technique of administration as well. A lot can change in 4 years. The only thing that bothers me with this news is that 41% of the docs said that the PLACEBO group had improvement and circa 60% said the isologen group had improvement. So the isologen group only did 20% better than placebo? Yes that is statistically significant but it isn't really a
  7. This could revolutionize scarless healing and regenerative medicine.
  8. And what journal were these studies published?
  9. Absolutely. President Obama should regard funding on embryonic stem cells and regenerative medicine as part of his economic stimulus plan and as a means to cut down health care costs. With ways to regenerative our skin or other organs, we will no longer lead a diminished life, no longer have to avoid meeting other people- this increase our economy's productivity as a whole. What's more, the society will no longer need to bear the costs of managing many chronic diseases. I really thought hard
  10. Yes FDA allows first test of human stem cell therapy "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cleared the way for the first trial to see if human embryonic stem cells can treat people safely" http://www.newsdaily.com/stories/tre50m2u9-us-stemcells/ As have said in this news:http://www.kpbs.org/news/local?id=13654 "Stem cells come from many different sources in the body, and they can come from adults. But Snyder says embryonic cells are still the gold standard. He says no other stem cells are
  11. Very good ID, hopefully they will get back to you. Hopefully it isn't classified. I wouldn't have this dissuade us one way or the other really. What works for burn revision might not necessarily work for scar revision and what works for scar revision might not necessarily work for burn revision. Although they share a similar pathway there are still very two different monsters.
  12. Which product are you referring to? And Why can't scars be within 3 cm of each other? I think he is referring to a clinical trial i posted a few pages back about using Juvista for scar revision (the first time to my knowledge that revision is what is being tested instead of scar reduction). It wasn't that it only works if your scars are at least 3 cm apart, it was just the inclusion criteria for those wanting to be involved in the trial.
  13. Good point...we are just speaking in hypotheticals. The fact is we do not know how long it would take. My guess it would take longer than a regular wound heal because stuff has to actively migrate to the site and then grow ...it just doesn't accumulate out of thin air. The question of downtime is because we are assuming the outer most layer, the layer that is visible will be the last to regenerate/become repigmented so it could be red and raw looking for a while.
  14. Hypothetically speaking if this stuff works, and the downtime turns out to be long ...my plan is to spot treat around 3 or 4 scars at a time ...you know just enough spots where yeah the healing parts are noticeable but not enough to keep you "down" for a matter of time.
