FORGING A PATH FOR NEW HAIR GROWTH

"THE DOGMA WAS THAT YOU WERE BORN WITH THE TOTAL NUMBER OF HAIR FOLLICLES THAT YOU WERE EVER GOING TO HAVE. THEIR LOSS WAS CONSIDERED PERMANENT. NOW, WE KNOW IT'S NOT."

- Dr. George Cotsarelis, Chair of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania & Follica Scientific Co-founder

We’ve teamed up with leading dermatologists with expertise in hair loss and epithelial stem cell biology to develop a new system aimed at not just improving existing hair growth, but also growing new hair.

Currently-approved treatments work with only the hair you already have...either transplanting existing hair, or reviving shrunken hair follicles which cause hair to thin and stop growing with age. 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

PRECISION

WE START IN THE OFFICE WITH A DEVICE DESIGNED TO TREAT HAIR LOSS

We are developing a new, noninvasive in-office treatment performed by a licensed medical professional, designed around Follica’s proprietary device to disrupt the skin and create de novo hair follicles.

 
 
 

HUMAN-CENTERED
TO FIT AT-HOME

SMART

Then continue at-HOME WITH A BETTER, CLEAN ROUTINE

Our at-home treatment system is being designed to better deliver a range of compounds directly to the scalp and fit seamlessly into a daily routine. By providing personalized tracking and reminders along the way, it can make treating hair loss feel less like a chore, and more like part of your regular grooming regimen.

 
 

A PERSONALIZED PLAN

INTEGRATED

 

GREAT JOB...YOUR (RE)ORDER IS READY.

When paired with the at-home device, our companion smartphone app will complete the treatment system, providing a personalized approach to fit individual lifestyles and establish a daily routine. Along the way, users will be able to track and encourage their own regular use, or enable the device to automatically re-order supplies straight to their door.
