Update: New Follica Website

The times they are a-changing.

Nowadays you can’t even take a trip to the fridge to grab more hummus dip without some hair growth startup rolling out their new website and business plan. 

Jokes aside, Follica has been the ultimate tight-lipped company in the hair regeneration biz for about 8 years now. To be honest, I understand the approach. You keep working on the treatment behind closed doors until you’ve got something that really works and all of the sudden you hit the world with a Hoo-Ah that would make Al Pacino proud. At least that’s how I like to think of it. Anyways, let’s just take a look at the new revelations.

For starters here’s the syntax from Follica’s new layout:

“Our technology is based on a proprietary approach intended to create an “embryonic window” in adult skin, allowing new follicles and new hair to form from epithelial stem cells. Following skin disruption, cells that migrate to help healing are forced to make a decision: Should I make epidermis, or should I make a hair? There is a window of opportunity in which we can potentially push them to choose the latter, and we believe there are multiple biological pathways to target to enhance this outcome. This regenerative effect is called hair follicle neogenesis.”

The significant info on Follica’s new website:

  • Non-invasive skin disruption treatment to create new follicles done in-office by a physician
  • At home device + topical compounds to maintain and continue the new hair growth
  • Smartphone app to remind users of their treatment times and re-order supplies
  • A doctor affiliate program

This is a thoughtful program that Follica has created. The at-home device and progress tracking app are welcomed ideas and should improve compliance.

The only question left is…..how much new hair are we talking about here, Follica?

  1. This speaks to me certainly, do it in their own area of treatment. The question is indeed what the results are, and for whom this treatment is appropriate, and the last question is when this product hits the market. @Admin Thx

  2. You are the best Joseph!!! Always informing us and giving us hope!

  3. Millions of men and women are waiting for a new treatment to treat well MPB!! It’s awesome…

  4. Look’s like this Follica treatment will be an ongoing cost type of treatment for their customers.

    I hope it’s not an everyday at home application of whatever.

    The ultimate treatment/solution to the baldness problem would be minimal injections in the scalp and no ongoing stuff to buy to use at home.

    Once and done.(or very few treatments)
    But I guess they want to make more money.

    • Well, I don’t think it’s necessarily a money decision. It seems like they’re looking to improve efficacy (grow more hair & sustain hair growth) with the addition of the at-home treatment.

      However, with so many options proposed to be out there in 2018, anyone could pick the one they feel most comfortable with. Even with the injection treatments it seems as if follow up visits will be part of their treatment process.

      Isn’t it awesome that there are so many treatment options?! We also don’t know yet how they might work together synergistically.

      • I think the current treatment will give better results with combined therapy than that of the relatively

  5. Hello. Do you have an update on whatever was going on in Turkey? There have been some good pictures circulating on the forums and it seemed like the treatment with the earliest release date.

    • Hi,

      I don’t have an update on anything from Turkey at this time.


    • Cris,

      Thanks for visiting. I have noted that Brotzu lotion may be out in early 2017. The blog also mentions that Kelopesia was pushed back to around Jan 2017. We’re not quite there yet. Samumed is working behind the scenes to see how they can improve their hair growth results and contemplating the next step.


      • Hi Joeseph. There was some news on Samumed recently. Personally very positive, sounds like they will be showing the results next couple of months at a conference. Hopefully some news on phase 3
