  • Regarding Piliel’s previous trials and Life Medical Science: According to Osmotics, when the previous trials for Piliel were done, they did not use the original formula created by Dr. Ellenbaum. They modified it to try to preserve the live cultures used in the formula. Their alterations are what caused the product to not work as well as the original studies using the original formula. Osmotic’s version uses some new technologies which were not available at the time of the original Piliel trials to preserve the live cultures without using chemical preservatives.
  • The cost of the formula has not yet been set in stone yet, but will be around $60 for a 4 oz bottle. A 4 oz. bottle is expected to last about 2 months, so the treatment will be around $30 per month in cost.
  • According to Dr. Ellenbaum, you will get most of the results you are going to see by the end of a year and after the first year you can use a maintenance approach of only applying the treatment 2-3 times per week, which will bring the cost down further.
  • The treatment appears to work just as well in the front of the scalp as in the back.
  • The treatment appears to help in almost all forms of hair loss whether it be genetic or due to other factors. Studies currently being done or planned hope to show that it will help prevent chemotherapy induced hair loss as well as prevent graft loss and telogen effluvium (shedding) in hair transplants.
  • The treatment works for women as well as men. Several of the original Piliel small scale trial participants who had good results were women.
  • FNS may help restore hair color and characteristics such as waviness that have gone away with age.
  • They are marketing FNS as a cosmetic and not seeking FDA approval due to the expense, so they are limited on the claims they can make. They are going to be doing some studies to help show effectiveness but plan to demonstrate effectiveness primarily through results of the product and marketing the product to dermatologists.
  • The treatment is best applied after showering so that there is no sebum on the scalp. They recommend application at night so that it can be on the scalp throughout the night. Use with other alcohol based topicals are not recommended, although oral medications such as Propecia are ok.
  • There is no set date for release yet. They estimate at the end of March or the beginning of April.
  • Osmotics is posting a news piece shown previously on the BBC regarding Piliel and showing results of some of its users.
  • Shipping through the US postal service will not affect the product as it contains enriched cell cultures but not live cell cultures.
