  1. She was talking about a filler that Allergan is going to release in the US: Volite. Not made to help acne scars and it's already available over seas I believe.
  2. Unfortunately that's how medical research goes. You can't really rush stuff to market when it takes years of animal studies and then years of human trials to prove something is both safe and effective for us.
  3. Thanks for posting. Thank goodness that people smarter than me are working on stuff like this lol. It seems like using hydrogels after excising scar tissue would be the easiest way to solve scarring, but obviously it's pretty complicated. Here's my favorite part of that paper: "To the best our knowledge, it is the first time scarless wound healing similar to normal dermis has been achieved using SF‐based biomaterials." This is only in rat studies so it has a way to go to being used in humans, bu
  4. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/allergan-highlights-key-growth-drivers-for-medical-aesthetics-300713038.html Here's a link I found that talks about elastagen briefly that I don't think lehran posted before. It just talks about the results of the acne scar trials they ran very briefly: "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 a
  5. I think it might just be a marketing thing right now. Releasing good before and after photos would get a lot of people interested in the product and trying to find a way to buy it. If you release pictures a couple years before launch then you let the hype die down and some people will inevitably forget about the product when it finally launches and not seek treatment. There's really no point to release the photos if they're good in advance of launch; other than giving people hope. I don't think
  6. Tropoelastin seems different because our bodies need it to properly heal but we don't make a lot of it. Plus the technology seems different than the other ones you listed because it has had several human trials conducted and Allergan then spent hundred of millions of dollars to acquire it. Allergan wasn't looking to waste massive amounts of money for something that didn't show signs of being truly different.
  7. Feel free to DM every link you've got lol
  8. I wish this was confirmed by other articles and news about the product. None of the other sources I've found state that it helps regenerate the accessory parts of skin too. Granted these other sources are mostly about the buy out so they probably don't really care about the finer details.
  9. Unfortunately just wait. And hope all the hype is legit
  10. With clinical trials already having occurred I don't see how it could still take that long to come out. I guess they would know better than me tho lol. The sound cloud interview you linked with Dr. Weiss had him saying that the first products would be on the shelf in a year to 18 months, and the interview was 9 months ago already.
  11. God I hope not 5 years lol. It's obviously not that long in the grand scheme of things but I'm hoping for sooner still. But if it can't help box scars I'm left waiting anyway I guess
  12. Not sure what I said, you might be mistaking it for what lehran said. Anyway, I feel like we can’t say there’s treatment until it’s actually available
  13. If true that's too bad. Although it seemed like not much progress was being made on the product anyway so I wasn't getting my hopes up for Sunogel anyway.
  14. I get into this mindset that my scars aren't that bad and everything will be okay, just to end up thinking they're the worse thing ever a few months later lol. The back and forth of it all can be so draining. glad to hear you've made piece with yours tho and even so treatment is likely on the way.
  15. Don't understate it, it's sounds like a big deal. Once the product starts bringing in some revenue, you know Abbvie will start to see what else it can help treat. The hardest part I would think is getting the product approved. Once it is, then you can easily test it for all sorts of stuff. I noticed on Allergens website they have a product pipeline page saying what they are developing. It mentions Elastagen for skin quality and acne scars, but no mention for specifically stretch marks.
