Intercytex Hair Cloning Efforts Shut Down
FUTURE TREATMENTS FOR HAIR LOSS WILL RESULT FROM ADVANCES IN LASER TECHNOLOGY
We are all aware that hair cloning was touted in recent years as the next major breakthrough for the treatment of hair loss. News of this new technology was all over the internet.
The headlines in the press have screamed the news:
‘HAIR CLONING NEARS REALITY AS BALDNESS CURE’
‘NEW HAIR CLONING IS SURE TO BE A MIRACLE’
‘BALDING? PREPARE FOR BRAVE NEW WORLD OF HAIR CLONING’
Unfortunately, this hope seems to have passed as one of the major companies conducting research in this field, Intercytex has shut down and sold off their assets. The technology has proven exceedingly difficult and expensive to develop and results of preliminary research has shown disappointing results.
We continue to believe the best opportunities for future treatments of hair growth rests in laser phototherapy technology. Presently, the HairMax LaserComb is the only laser phototherapy device proven to work in treating hereditary hair loss. Research on the use of lasers in conjunction with other compounds will yield a synergy and lead to exciting new and effective treatment regimens in the future. Ongoing research will lead to the marketing of regimens with greater and greater efficacy from laser technology in the future. Lexington will be at the forefront of these efforts!
