    Scarring in general. Pores and hair follicles release BMPs which are essential for adipose tissue, fatty tissue. With acne or atrophic scarring, there is an absence of fat tissue resulting in skin indentations. I agree, this stuff doesn't seem legit and does nothing on existing scars anyways.

    There is another emerging player that nobody has talked about, PXL01. https://www.promorepharma.com/en/pxl01 They are currently in clinical trials. They have developed a peptide which aims to tackle scarring. They are primarily focused however on eliminating internal scarring after tendon surgery for now.

    I will look into that for you. When I have relative information, I will post it.

    FS2 as I stated before contains kynurenine, a natural occurring metabolite found in living organisms. A metabolite is normally a byproduct of an amino acid, in this case tryptophan. Amino acids are important as they play an important role in protein synthesis. Kynurenine is also important because it regulates the immune system and also dilates blood vessels during inflammation. So its essential to wound healing. Too much kynurenine suggests however increased risk of mental illness and card

    It's amazing as how many posters here still think that scarring is a disease. Don't expect a "cure" for something that is not a disease. Scarring is completely natural, part of the healing process for many living organisms. We can expect solutions to eliminate or fade dcars in the next decades hopefully.

    There are many things happening all over the world. Experimental and regenerative medicine is at our doorstep. Many new treatments are in clinical trials currently and can be game changers. However, it takes a long time for new drugs or therapies to be approved. Also, if there is profits to be made, nobody will block these things forever. The next decade will be interesting. Twenty years ago, we still had cassette radios and pagers. Face and hand transplants were impossible. Currentl

    You need to understand that it has nothing to do with scarring per say but it goes deeper than that. What is morally acceptable for science to do or not do when it comes to changing human DNA, gene manipulation or stem cell research. Many politicians in western countries have passed legislation that don't allow researchers from doing much. Religious leaders will often speak out about the implications of cloning and stem cell research. It's another debate on ethics and morals. People a

    Yeah, but a scar is not a disease, remember that. You keep thinking that scarring is a disease. It's a way for the body to repair itself, nature has decided so but not all organisms heal this way. Mammals have limited regenerative capacity, so blame your genes not the scientists who spend days in labs discovering the mechanisms behind life. There is no cure to find for scarring as it is not a disease. You can say that scarring affects people emotionally and this can lead to mental illness. If we

    The FDA has been approving many things lately relatively fast. I just think they are going into experimentatal medicine hoping to find cures and solutions to different diseases and other cosmetic issues.

    I know this does not belong here but finding the appropriate blogs on the site to post this has become increasingly difficult. A new study has shown that we can blame our genes for our acne woes. https://www.newscientist.com/article/2188000-acne-study-reveals-genes-for-hair-follicles-are-partly-to-blame The study suggests that certain shapes of hair follicles are more prone to trap bacteria and thus form pimples. Considering that most people will get acne at some point, this sug

    Many of those white patches are slightly raised for me. I have about 1000+ of white or slightly raised white lesions clustered together on parts of my upper arms, covering large portions of my shoulderblades and sides of my back. I also have a few in the area between the shoulders and neck, they are far less noticeable. The right side of my back is pretty badly scarred. I don't have any in the middle of my back and if I do, they are sporadic and nothing to cry over. I don't take off my shi

    It is something I have talked about previously. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/allergan-highlights-key-growth-drivers-for-medical-aesthetics-300713038.html "New topline data was presented on the use of TE-HA, the hydrogel containing recombinant tropoelastin, gained as part of Allergan's acquisition of Elastagen, for the treatment of adult patients with acne scars. At 6 months, 21 of 27 (78%) patients reported improvements in acne scar appearance. TE-HA also demonstrated sign

    I just browse the Internet and this forum reading about the latest research on scarless healing. It's an exciting time because scientists are pushing towards regenerative medicine. They have made great progress in regenerating teeth, skin, other organs and limbs in labs. However, certain individuals who risk losing big will hide behind ethics and morals preventing regenerative medicine from going to the next level. When it comes to scarring, it is not a disease but rather a cosmetic issue except

    As stated previously, they are still around. They have been adopted by a hospital based in Cleveland as a standard wound treatment. See https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/polarityte-and-university-hospitals-cleveland-medical-center-announce-system-wide-approval-of-skinte-300768702.html They have posted some pictures on their website of some patient's progress who got SkinTE instead of regular skin grafts. Those pics are not scarless healing though. You can download the pics and j

    As per their website, they are presently in pre-clinical trials for WizGel DX1 until the third quarter of 2019. They are planning to go to clinical trials as of late 2019, I believe. Their product is intended for pre-existing scars and full thickness wounds (my guess second and third degree burns). They also developped WizGel DX2 for diabetic wounds. They are planning to launch products for other cosmetic considerations. This is something you can read on their website. No need to tal
