  1. It's an injectable solution based on tropoelastin basically. I linked a video with the "metro" gel before, this will give you a good idea of how this is gonna work They want to treat acne scars and atrophic scars in general, and even hytrophic scars later on. It's just that box scars and icepick scars (acne) are harder to treat, so it'll take slightly more time for that, and I think someone else mentioned this as well. Hypertrophic scars are the real hard thing to take care of, be
  2. The synthetic skin completely covers the zones devoid of skin, yes (so basically your stretch marks are filled and replaced with new skin), with the depression volume being reduced by 80-90%: which means that the depth of the depression is reduced by the aforementioned percentage. So basically, you're going to get healthy looking skin back again, but it's not gonna completely make the depression disappear. For example, let's say you have a stretch mark with a depression depth of 5 millimete
  3. They already have a product out there called "Me-tro" for wounds: Thing is, now that Abvie and allergan have the product, they're gonna make sure it's as profitable and marketable as possible, although they're followin the recommendations of the elastagen team. So yeah it's definitely gonna take some time yet. You're not gonna see it coming out in 2020 or even 2021 imo...but 2022 is definitely a possibilty, we shall see.
  4. Word from the dermatologists and surgeons I talked to is something like 2-3 years on average, 5 years is possible, but that's if we're unlucky.
  5. There were red flags everywhere honestly, it's not surprising at all. That's why I think that managing our expectations is always the best thing to do. Again, I wasn't able to find a single thing about sunogel that was reassuring or noteworthy.
  6. Stay away from bright artificial lights and you'll be ok, they make them look 10 times worse than what they're really like. Been there, done that. I'm not going to lie though: knowing that the first real treatment ever for SM is coming in a couple of years is helping a lot.
  7. Yea, product approval is the tricky part most of the time in these cases. I noticed the same thing you did concerning the product pipeline btw, but I don't think it's that big of a deal: imo it would definitely be easier to created an injectable for acne scars than stretch marks, and with striae being so incredibly common (70-80% of the population) they probably want to be 100% sure that they have something working before indicating it in the pipeline. I kinda managed to calm down about my
  8. This is not about acne scars, atrophic scars or hypertrophic scars (gotta say it in order to make sure no one gets hyped for nothing), it's just about stretch marks BUT this is very good news: I tried to get in touch with Dr Weiss again, asking about tropoelastin, like @goblue1996 did recently, and I managed to get an answer about stretch marks. I'll cut to the chase: my question was simply " does this mean that patients all around the world are soon going to have access to a treatment tha
  9. Me too man, you're lucky xD edit: I tried asking him again, you never know.
  10. Oh, I couldn't get an answer from him so far (I did get one from the ceo though). Would you mind asking him about stretch marks in particular? I know that we have tons of sources where they mention awesome results, but I'd really like to hear what he has to say about it.
  11. Fair enough, how was I supposed to know that? There are 440 pages here and we haven't all been here for years.
  12. I forgot to include it, my bad:
  13. I just found a thread about scarless healing on reddit btw, for those who want to take the rime reading
  14. I'm really not familiar with microcoring. Would you be kind enough to tell us if it would work on scars and stretch marks, and potentially share some useful links with us? (kinda like what I did with Elastagen the last weeks). Thanks in advance !
  15. No, homeopathy doesn't do shit for scar tissue. If it did, we'd know it already. Thank you.
  16. No ads here, I reported your post
  17. You're welcome, I did a lot of research and talked to a lot of people, so I enjoy sharing what I could find with you guys. I'm not saying scarless healing won't happen this decade I'm simply saying that it's unknown territory. The difference between a tremendously important improvement and near perfection is huge, in the sense that it gets harder and harder to reach this state as you get near it. I should have probably linked you that document sooner though, as wanting to know if synth
  18. I am not patronizing you, I'm simply saying that you're the one who's acting like Nostradamus with this whole "it's gonna happen this decade" thing. I'm merely talking about possibilities: I could have said 5,7,9 years or whatever, we just don't know when " scarless healing is going to happen. Now, about the oil glands, sweat glands, hair follicles etc...I'd advise you to read this, page 18 (https://go8.edu.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Allies-In-Excellence.pdf ), as you can see it's
  19. Keyword here: "might". I said you MIGHT have to wait 10 or 20 years, no one knows. Nostradamus didn't talk about possibilities. However (and I'm quoting your last answer here), saying something like "This decade it will occur" is much more Nostradamus-like, I"m sure you will agree ;-). Seriously though: I understand that you're desperate to completely get rid of your scars, but stop saying stuff like "this is going to happen this decade 100%", NO ONE knows if this is going to be the ca
  20. Then you might have to wait 10 years, 20 years or more friend, good luck. I don't understand why people wouldn't want a skin condition to be ameliorated by 90% honestly, but whatever.
  21. Real news are not gonna be there before a couple years I'm afraid. If you're interested, I did receive a message from the ceo of Elastagen recently(via linkedin), who was kind enough to give me a few minutes of his time, and where he tells me, after I've discussed my stretch marks "problems" with him, that he can't disclose confidential information since they were acquired by Allergan (which is completely normal, obviously). He did give me some advice though: "Hi ****, Than
  22. No one knows how long this would be. 100% = perfection. That's damn hard to achieve, if even possible. I can't stress this enough though: stop focusing on percentages, and start to take a look at the methods which will be used to treat the aforementioned skin lesions. That's what truly matters.
  23. You guys are relying way too much on numbers, that's not how you should look at it: is the reduction going to be the same from one technique to the other? No, not at all. Some techniques involve tissue regeneration, some involve skin tightening yada yada yada...and the results will vary a lot from one technique to the other. For instance (yes, elastagen again, sorry), for atrophic scars, acne scars and stretch marks tropoelastin skin implants would be about the "volume", since you're f
  24. Main concern is the price as well. If you're something like 20-40 years old, it's good, as you'll indeed still be relatively young to enjoy stuff (especially with how drastically longer life will be in the future with biotechnology). I'm not quite sure about your scars tbh, it really depends how depressed they are.
