Previous threads on Regenix are already old and abandoned. I could not revive them either even though I can bring up some good points that have not been made.
I have conducted an internet search on regenix to see what people are saying about it. I have not found legitimate evidence one way or the other. I mean, everyone has an opinion....
Regenix does not claim to grow new hair, but they can stop the hair loss and even thicken the hair already present. It is for people that already have hair and want to preserve it-its not for people who want to grow new hair because they lost so much. They have been in business for more than two decades. Their BBB(Better Business Bureau) report is excellent. I would think that with a business such as this, there would be enough people who would not hesitate to write to the BBB if they did not get good results or their money back. Naysayers, WHY DO THEY HAVE SUCH A GOOD RECORD WITH THE BBB?
Regenix will cost you about $500/month for 8-10 months and then maybe $50 or so a month for maintenance there after. Its tons better than a transplant in both price and the fact that your own hair will remain intact if this Regenix actually does the job they are suppose to. Hair transplants look horrible--it is a horrible alternative. Prevention is best and cheaper (if propecia and rogaine work for you, then stick with them until something else comes out). Don't go to Regenix if Rogaine is working for you. I am not interested in seeing money go to Regenix if rogaine actually works on you.
I am not here to praise or bash, but I want the TRUTH. A lot of bashers for Regenix don't seem to understand the program and don't use real hard facts to back up their bashing.
What Regenix does is take away the gunk around the Hair follicle. They get rid of positioned DHT around the follicle and oxidize the 5-alpha-reductase rendering it inactive.
It does not get rid of systemic DHT, just the one affect your scalp--hence no sexual side effects like sometimes occurs with propecia.
I cannot believe Regenix bashers who have never been there. I also cannot believe Regenix bashers who quit after 2 months. Any legitimate hair regimen will take 6 months to a year. Think about how long propecia and rogaine take?
After the Regenix treatment, assuming it works, rogaine or propecia can be even more effective because they are dealing with a healthier scalp--a better starting point.
I think its easier to prevent hair loss than to be bald and then try and replenish it. However, I am having a very hard time finding something that will stabilize my hair loss. I take the right nutrients, I am in excellent health, propecia never ever stopped my hair loss (it may work for you though). Regenix has been my last resort, but I have been only on there for 3 months now. My hair is still thinning. The Regenix folks say that it takes longer to reach stabilization. I had the audacity to tell them that what if Regenix never stops my hair loss, do I get all of my money back? They said that they want good results and would not like to take my money if I have bad results. I further asked what if I stay on the program for 10 months, do I still get all the money back? They said yes. So far they feel confident to keep me on the program because the monthly visits show, via microscope, that the gunk around my follicles are vanishing. That DHT laded gunk has to be eliminated first then the follicle needs some months to get used to its new environment and hopefully start producing thicker and healtier hair.
I would think if this place is a scam, then there would be heads rolling. The Beverly Hills clientel would not stand getting ripped off blindly like that.
If by the end of 10 months I dont see results, I am going to be extremely angry. They better make the refund process easy or I will raise a stink about it for sure and not let it go by. The BBB will hear it from me (I have used them in the past and they always mediated or simply left the company a very bad rating---I love it!!!). I am more than ready to take them to court if the BBB does not work to my satisfaction. I will not stop there either, I want to make sure others know the facts as well.
I guess I should have gone with rogaine before Regenix, but my long-time dermatologist really did not feel confident recommending rogaine to me. Ultimately, I am the only one interested in keeping my hair intact. Even though I had the same dermatologist for the past 13+ years, I still feel I don't get enough individualized attention. Propecia never stopped my hair loss, yet he did not do much about it. Sure he recommended T-Gel and Nizoral to help my dandruff problem, but I want more concern and care than that. I have too much a good head of hair to quit finding ways to stop the hair loss once and for all.
I don't recommend Regenix to anyone at this point. See how rogaine and propecia/proscar work for you. Please do not forget about the proper nutrition. I think Tom has the right idea about using brewer's yeast in orange juice to get the essential materials for healthy hair.
As a person who has visited Regenix, I can say I am extremely skeptical. After all, it is a business. It is there so that they can make money. Tom is not trying to sell us anything, but just commenting what he knows. I like Tom for that.
If there is anything you want me to do or ask Regenix, just make a post.

So $5 THOUSAND dollars in the first 10 months, and then 50 bucks a month for the rest of your life.
A hair transplant surgery would be cheaper in two years than that.........thats very expensive for a company that doesnt even put one before and after photo on its own website isnt it?
I mean, if it worked so well, you'd think there would be pics of 20 or 30 heads that it has been used on and at least a few minutes of downloadable video of users bragging about (and showing you) all the hair that they have regained vs. their old pictures of when they started, right?
|Posted on Wednesday, September 21, 2005 - 04:39 am: ||
Frist of all, thanks for posting.
Hair Transplants don't run $6000. They are much more than that and it is detectable. Nothing beats natural hair. Come on, if hair transplants were so good, then there is no point in a lifetime of rogaine or propecia.
Do you know who Wade Boggs is? He is a recent inductee of the Baseball Hall of Fame. A man with so much wealth would not mind paying $25,000 for the best HT surgeon. However, his HT does not look natural to me. I would not want that for myself. He probably had no choice because he was bald on top, and rogaine is effective in certain spots and usually better for people who had recent hairloss and not decades later. Propecia is not miracle drug either, it cannot grow that much hair to cover huge bald spots. Besides, propecia is better in preventing hairloss and cannot grow the abundance needed to cover huge spaces of bald areas.
In all due respect, Regenix prevents further hairloss, it does not grow new hair. How effective will a before and after photo be? The point is to walk in the office with a full set of hair and just keep it that way. Your hair might be enhanced by appearing healthier and the strands might become slightly thicker--no real dramatic change. Therefore, a photo is not going to be dramatic if it is portraying the truth. This is where people don't get it. Don't go to Regenix thinking you will gain hair. Go to Regenix if you have great hair and want KEEP THAT WAY. Some customers walk in and ask what are all these people doing here with such great hair. Well, that is the point, you keep the great hair that you have PERIOD. If you have a thinned out look right now, expect to have a thinned out look with slightly thicker hair strands in some areas after the Regenix program.
Most people want hairloss solutions after having suffered major hairloss. This is where propecia and rogaine can help some. However, these drugs also help the person who has great hair but is starting to feel some loss--he gets to keep the hair he has.
You want videos on the website of people bragging about how effective it was? Do you usually fall for such marketing ploys? I actually felt it was very credible of the company not to be so flambouyant. Their BBB report speaks for itself. I am a matter of fact kind of person. Testimonies by strangers on video do not cut it. Those are just gimmicks.
It sounds like you never been to Regenix. All you mentioned that it was expensive. $50/month is no big deal to me if my hair will remain healthy without those side effects (there are no side effects with the regenix treatments). It is such a relief not to have to worry about hairloss, so if Regenix will help me with my hairloss, I consider it a bargain with $5000 initial and then $50/month. Once you go bald, there is very little success to regain your youthful look afterwards.
Propecia will run about $50/month too, you know, and it has side effects. I think rogaine is cheaper than that. Whichever of the three work for you, use it!
I think the biggest problem with Regenix is what people expect. The pricing is clear--I have illuminated that. What Regenix does is no miracle. No hair growth, just enhancements and preservation. Some people do not have real good hair but they go to Regenix just to keep the remaining hair they have since they do not want to be completely bald or resort to a full comb over. Sometimes looking thinned out is better than completely bald and if people are satisfied with that, then Regenix can help.

The last quote I got for a hair transplant was exactly $6000 for 900 transplant grafts which is what the doc advised me to get. Most transplants consist of less than 1500 grafts which run at about 10K. The docs advise the patients to get on Propecia to keep their vertex and top from going bald (where propecia is effective) and to use Nizoral shampoo a couple of times a week.
However, I agree with you. Transplants are a mistake for young men. Who knows how far their baldness will go. The follicular units look fine, but will the guy go horeshoe bald, with not enough hair to cover the head. Until they can come up with more hair (cloning, multiplication.....whatever), its not really a long term feasible alternative.
Propecia is 55 a month, it is about 90% as effective if you bite the pills in half, which makes it about 27.50 a month. Nizoral is cheap if used 2X a week (its most effective that way). These will keep hair for most alone. Scalp excercises, avoiding saturated animal fat, eating soy and flax and getting a good intake of b-vitamins almost guarantee you will keep what you have behind the frontal lobe anyway (and proboably that too).
"Testomonies by strangers just dont cut if for me"................HA HA HA HA HA HA....So you would let a company tell you "you'll grow hair/keep hair with our product without one shred of photographic proof that it does so? Propecia.com and Rogaine.com have pics PROVING that their products can grow a little hair with FDA backed studies over 5 years PROVING that you keep more hair than you had for a signifigant period of time. Nizoral 2 and 1% also have FDA proof and SEVERAL users have posted their successful use of "the big 3" on Hairlosstalk.com. SO......27 a month for half a propecia tablet a day, about 8 bucks a month for the minoxodil (WalMart 3 pack price is 24 for a 3 month supply), and proboably a about 2 a month for the Nizoral 2X a week usage (leave in for 3 minutes), comes to 38 bucks a month. You'll proboably save that in the hamburgers and whole milk that you should avoid for its saturated animal fats by cooking at home and ditching McDonalds.
Plus no 5 THOUSAND dollars to begin with. You know what......Regenix proboably does help one keep their hair though.......just about 5 thousand more and another 12 bucks a month more than it has to be considering a PROVEN option.
Regenix, will never make money for the founders of the company. They proboably have less than a 5000 clients nationwide. Better treatments (topical androgen blockers, cloning, genetic therapies) are being worked on anyway so in 5-10 more years, this may all be a moot point.
|Posted on Friday, September 23, 2005 - 11:30 pm: ||
Great Post. I like to be challenged. I like what you said about propecia, Nizoral and Rogaine. I like your logic and agree with the pricing. I don't doubt that a smaller dosage of propecia is still very effective. That will vanish almost any side effect too. I am sad that propecia never stopped my hairloss in the 2+ years of taking it. I gave it enough time. I also used T-Gel and Nizoral throughout that time. Perhaps I was successful in slowing my hairloss, but I never once could stabilize it. I take flax seed oil, I avoid fast food. I do eat meat though. I take vitamin B-complexes too.
The problem keeping me from bashing Regenix is that they have a perfect BBB report. No unsatisfied customers as it seems. Photos and testimonies can easily be exaggerated, so I cannot really rely on those. The fact that Regenix offers a guarantee and the fact that no claims have been filed against them through the BBB, there must be something good going on there. Is the BBB hiding something? Regenix chooses who they want to treat, so that's how they are successful. Choosing your sample is a great way to get the results you want. Since I was chosen, I figure they could help the problem I have. If they cannot help, they offer to give me a full refund. That sounds good. Let's say, the program is not working, will they really actually give my money back with jumping through hoops? I cannot say. I have heard of no legit person to claim that and if it did happen, I am sure a customer would have gone to the BBB by now--it is so easy to do. What do you want me to do to challenge Regenix? Give me some suggestions. If they do what they claim, I praise them. If they give customers a hassle, I guess its BBB and lawsuit time. I would never do business with a place that has complaints filed against them that went unresolved--its not worth it. Regenix has a clean BBB record. If you can show otherwise, I will believe. In fact, I will call the BBB on Monday and ask if there are any "hidden complaints" that are not shown on the web site. Also, is there anyway I can scan court cases to see if Regenix was in any of them?
I agree that Regenix does seem pricy, but if it works, then its OK. I can live with it. However, the main point of our discussion is whether it works. As of now, I would NOT recommend Regenix, I would first advise the same things you did with nutrition, propecia, Rogaine, etc.
Let us keep this discussion going.

Good luck with Regenix. I hope if you can, you might post some pictures of your hair and repost in about a year-18 months and show us your progress. I hope Regenix isnt a scam, and quite frankly think what they sell would proboably help someone keep hair (albeit proboably about the same level as the simultaneous use of "the big 3 would).
A word on the BBB. I got scammed once by HairClub for Men. I tried their EXT. It cost 1900 bucks for a year. I lost hair faster than I ever had in my life. I honestly have wondered if they may have rigged their regimine to fail the cutsomer because they really want you in a toupee' (1500-2000 per year) or to go next door to get a transplant (for which they will no doubt recieve a steer fee). Regenix wouldnt have these enticements to put out a bogus program I admit. Back to the BBB. I never complained to them. Its hard to prove "I was balding and this made it worse." Most men are ashamed that they are balding at all. Young ones especially and old ones dont want to appear to be vain fools. The fact that you have checked up on the prospective locale with the BBB does bode well however. Many people can and do submit BBB complaints when they feel screwed whether they have been or not.
The thing that made me so leery of Regenix was the price. In this business, people will tell you (Loren Pickart has wrote this on his site also) that the most expensive products are usually the scam products. Ive read of no place that charges that much UP FRONT. I would think that if what they do really worked so well, the first two years might be 500 bucks a year, and up to 750-800 a year after that when youre reliant upon it and know it. Getting your money first (where they can immediately invest and draw interest on it) is really beneficial for them.
I wish you the best of luck on it however, and hope it works well for you . If it does, hope you have the time to not only post your before and after pics, but tell us as much as you can about what youve discerned about their treatments and what they use (i.e. what ingredients are used in the bottles that they give ya').
|Posted on Sunday, September 25, 2005 - 04:51 am: ||
Thank you so much for posting.
I am glad you addressed the BBB. Before buying or doing anything with a company, at least spend 5 minutes and check the company out on the BBB website. If there are too many unresolved complaints, you can bet there were probably more unsatisfied customers who don't know about the BBB or they were just tired of dealing with them. People like myself have a template letter ready and waiting whenever we are unsatisfied with a product or service. I feel it is a public service to complain to the BBB if the situation arises because many people don't complain enough and give up too easy. If the BBB reveals 10 complaints with a company, then there must be 100 unsatisfied customers out there. For every complaint, there are many more not reported. I feel that by reporting, I am increasing my chances for a resolution and at the very least, alerting others to stay away. My auto mechanic has ZERO complaints, which is why I keep going there. Regenix has one complaint that has been resolved. I wonder if unsatisfied customers would complain about Regenix, or will they be too embarrassed to admit they were balding and not draw attention to it with a complaint letter? I wonder about that.
What do you mean by the BIG THREE? Is that Nizoral, propecia and rogaine?
I don't believe Regenix will give better results than propecia or the other proven methods. I am with Regenix only because the combo of propecia, T-Gel shampoo, and Nizoral did not stop my hairloss. Perhaps I should have also used Rogaine as part of the treatment.... I would not be with Regenix if the other stuff just stopped my hairloss. I was panicking, so I had to do something. So far, I am still losing hair even after 3+ months of Regenix. I think that may not be long enough in all fairness, but I am having very serious doubts. Maybe on the 6 month mark I will achieve stabilization.
The reason why Regenix costs about $500 a month initially is because you will be using two hair treatment vials every other day. You put the stuff on your scalp and massage it in. The purpose of this is to first rid your hair follicles of the DHT gunk surrounding it. The stuff in the vials are natural and have no side effects and are geared towards riding the follicle of DHT. It is an aggressive treatment. Every month, they will take samples of your hair roots and show you how much the gunk around the root decreases (if there is no gunk on the root, then there is no gunk in the follicle itself). Some people take less time than others to achieve gunk free follicles. Once the follicle area is completely cleansed of the DHT laden gunk, you are still using 2 vials every other day to nourish the hair follicles. Follicles without DHT gunk can recover and grow healthier and thicker hair. The treatment vials at that point are basically amino acids and biotin to give the follicles the nutrients needed to start growing healthier and thicker hair. You will continue to use the vials on your scalp and massage it in. After a few more months of this and regular progress check ups you will soon reach your potential. Once your hair is healthy and a little thicker and no more improvement is evident during check ups, Regenix will slowly ween you off the routine to once a month maintenance doses which will be $50 or less. They will still want to see you for check ups just to monitor your progress and intervene if necessary. What bothers me is that they never seem to take before and after photos. All their assement is done with looking at your hair samples under the microscope and determining success or failure that way. They told me that it is still normal to have hairloss at my point in the treatment program. They claim my scalp will soon be adjusting to the DHT free environment, so it is important to give it more time to reach stabilization and then the subsequent thickening. It could be just bull, but it could also be the truth since propecia takes 6 months to a year to really work. Rogaine is similar. Nothing really works in 2-3 months anyway. I am still skeptical and I am already preparing for the BBB and even a lawsuit (just preparing, not pulling the trigger). I am not going to rollover on this if Regenix turns out not to keep its word. What things do you suggest I should do to prepare myself? Should I demand they take my pictures so they can see if it is really working at the end of 10 months? (right now they are keeping records of the monthly microscopy, which they claim all show progress). [Had the microscopy not shown progress in any of the monthly analysis, they would try other things and if the results still don't improve, then offer a refund.]
Should I go to my dermatologist and tell him to keep my outer scalp pictures on file in case they are needed for evidence? A court will believe a dermatologist testifying rather than relying on my own photos, which the other side will accuse of manipulation since I am "biased." I had some talks with the Regenix people and told them that if this does not work, I will be seeking a refund. They said that if it does not work, then they don't want my money since they are looking for good results. They run a high end facility (Ceders Sinai Building) for high end clients, so they want only good results. I guess they are concerned about negative words getting out to detract potential customers. We will see.
Regenix will tell you that after their treatment program, one will have a scalp free of DHT laden gunk, but then must just maintain it that way with once a month treatments. They suggest that propecia and rogaine will work better on a scalp that has little to no DHT gunk. So, after regenix, one can still use Rogaine to try and grow new hair. Regenix never claimed to grow new hair, but they can set up the scalp to react better to those hair growing drugs.

I could suggest for your own personal satisfaction that you buy a disposable camera or take your digicam outside on the next clear day and take pictures of your own scalp for your own personal satisfaction. I suppose your digicam might have a date feature or you could include a newspaper in the background (maybe even a little fall foliage if you are thinking legally) if you are looking to have something that might stand up in court.
However, 5k is small claims court material isnt it? A lawyer will cost you 1k anyway. Thats the conundrum someone seeking treatment is facing.
When I did the EXT thing at hairclub, it consisted of a shampoo used twice for one minute application and massage, a clear liquid substance that supposedly had "friendly bacteria in it" to "dry up my DHT" (which I think was just pinkish inflammation around my hair follicles----the few old hair plugs I have of healthy big hair had the most pink inflammation by the way, which really made me wonder about that) rubbed in for one minute twice, a conditioner rubbed in for one minute, an after shower nutrient booster which had jojobba, saw palmetto oil, grapefruit extract, linoleic acid, polysorbates, aloe and a few other things you see touted online as "good for hair loss", a marine based viviscal pill taken twice a day, an five percent minoxidil. I lost all my "weak" hair in between the plugs and quit in six months. My scalp did feel dry and I had less pink inflammation and the remaining hair felt "starchy" to me. I sure as hell grew nothing.
Tea tree oil deals very effectively with inflammation and so does emu oil. It turns the scalp back to the grey "scalp color". Androgen receptors on hair follicles are made continuously and dissipate continuously. If they are telling you that you can see DHT buildup, they are lying to you. You CAN see inflammation around the follicle which some speculate is the immune system trying to kill the follicle by the body's release of superoxides. This is why some use Tricomin or Folligen because they are Superoxide dismutases that try to counteract the bodys immune response. The product you describe might be attempting (with massage) to break up sebum deposits that have hardened in the follicle which is a good thing. Sebum rots and might elicit an immune response if its flow outward is gunked up by dry, scaly spoilt sebum.
I hope you have luck with the company. I have no idea whether its good or bad. Ive sort of agreed with myself that about 50 bucks a month is all I'll ever spend on hair (and Im not near that)because Im getting to where Im accepting that Im not going to regrow my temple hair and should be happy to be a Norwood 3. Most caucasoid men lose their temples eventually, and I seem to be holding pretty well. To be honest, If I were a young guy losing now, Id fight it with the info Ive gained from Tom, the big 3, and the possible addition of folligen or tricomin, but I'd still buzz my hair so if it stopped being effective for me.........I'd just look like another balding guy with a neat haircut. Life is too short to let this worry us to death. Best wishes on your progress though

Thank you for the post and the tips.
"The product you describe might be attempting (with massage) to break up sebum deposits that have hardened in the follicle which is a good thing. Sebum rots and might elicit an immune response if its flow outward is gunked up by dry, scaly spoilt sebum."
This is what Regenix tries to do and you expressed it better than I did. They really want us all to break up the sebum deposits. They even put a microscope wand through our scalp (viewable on a monitor) so they can show us if we are doing the scalp procedures right or not from a surface view. In that sense, Regenix sounds legit.
I do have a great digital camera with date stamp and sequence numbering. The first picture I ever took is numbered 1 and it continues to go into the hundreds. I guess I could go outside and have several pictures taken (even with the newspaper in background) for my own information and possible court. That should be hard evidence. I mean, all they have is pictures of my roots and that can easily be switched, altered, etc. However, a picture of me date stamped is harder to play around with. I guess I can consult a lawyer now just to see how I should set myself up.
$5000 is small claims stuff. However, if a lawyer costs $1000, that still may be worth it for me because this is a matter of principle too. If I cant get all my money back because of legal fees and all, at least if I win the case, they wont have my money and I would have also tarnished their reputation, which is important because I dont want my sacrifice to be in vain and I would feel better that many others can be steered away from being scammed further.
I am young and Caucasian. I have very little detectable hairloss, so I am trying to fight it now while its still feasible with our current advances. I am going to read more into Tom's methods to make sure I am doing it right. (at the very least the scalp exercises will keep a youthful face). Also, what exactly is the "big 3"?
I don't believe there is one thing that will prevent hairloss. It has to be in combination. The nutrition and diet must be there. The health and healthy lifestyle must be there. The right shampoos. Keeping the scalp clean and healthy. Preventing sebum build up. All these issues certainly have to be addressed otherwise, rogaine, propecia and regenix cannot be as effective if at all. Regenix urges its clients take B supplements and saw palmetto as well as their treatment regimen.
I am guite a health fanatic and always look for new ideas in maintaining health, which is why I think I managed to have above average hair even though the men in my family lost theirs very early.
|Posted on Monday, September 26, 2005 - 09:40 pm: ||
Sounds like youre doing the best things according to the information available these days.
The "big 3" as referred to on hairlosstalk.com are the simultaneous use of propecia, minoxidil, and nizoral shampoo as a regimine. The nizoral, according to the users on those forums, should be used only 2 to 3 (the very most) times a week and left in for about 3 minutes. Tricomin, because its been through the first two phases of FDA trials is the other product that the administrators of hairlosstalk (their names are axon, cassin, admin) suggest one might try before attempting any other products.
I hope you have success, but if you still slowly receed, I hope you dont make the same mistake I made ten years ago and get surgery. Just look at Dr. Phil or Dick Cheney and ask yourself how ridiculous those men would appear with see-through pluggish hair all over their heads. For the Norwood 5 or more man, transplants just cant give thick enough coverage to be cosmetically acceptable no matter the surgeons skill. Im not betting on cloning (but I am hoping for it) until it comes and has been tested with many happy clients. A buzz cut and a gym bod will still attract a worthwile woman to you. Guys with bad former transplants dont have that option.
|Posted on Wednesday, November 09, 2005 - 02:42 am: ||
I have been on Regenix for 5 months now and wanted to update on this thread I started.
I do take supplements such as saw palmetto, MSM, B complexes, flax seed oil, drink natural juices that have no added sugars and I am generally health conscious. On the Norwood scale, I would say that I am between 1 and 2 with a slight hint of the vertex thinning (depending on how it is combed). Most people cannot detect my thinning hair because it still has good coverage.
I am actually seeing some hairs grow on my frontal line and temples. They are thin, but they are piercing through my scalp. They have a sharp pointy tip, which means they are young hair that have not been cut yet. I never experienced anything like this before. I welcome the "new hairs." This is gradual and took a considerable amount of time. The "new hairs" are growing longer and slowly filling up spots on my hairline. It really is exciting to see! I wonder if more hair will come out of the woodworks and eventually get thicker. I guess this means my hair loss has stabilized. Only time will tell. This is cautious optimism.
One really has to hold to their regimen, whatever they customize it to be. I am doing so many things to promote healthy hair that I cannot give credit to just one thing. I have learned that supplementation is very important, but that the scalp surface also has to be healthy.
I applaud the number of people on this board who have concocted their own regimen that worked for them. Personally, I prefer the self-discovery model rather than be dependent on a company like Regenix to solve hair loss problems. I am disappointed to be part of the latter group.

im just a regular guy from cleveland and ive been using regenix for 2.5 years and could not be more satisfied. my hair is thicker and my hairline in front is filling in. ive used rogaine before and it just didnt do it for me. regenix works on all your hair just not the crown. my hair would never grow past a certain length and now its long and full. it takes time though i really didnt notice anything substantial in new hair for probably a year and a half but the quality was improving almost immediatly. again it takes time and it is costly but for me worth it. i also try to stay in shape and eat right. it seems to me doctors are quick to discredit regenix but i guess they might feel threatned. transplantation is huge buisness.
|Posted on Sunday, January 29, 2006 - 01:44 am: ||
A person that has some significant bald spots would need to see a hair transplant surgeon. Regenix does not grow hair on bald scalps. Surgeons and Regenix serve a different consumer base. Regenix may help people keep their hair if they are not too far gone. A hair transplant surgeon takes people who are already bald or have huge balding areas that Regenix claims it cannot help anyway.
There is no study that suppports what Regenix claims. Dr. Steven Shapiro once attempted a study, but it was never completed (perhaps Regenix failed and made it so it would not be online). I will call Shapiro's office during the week and ask about it.

Does Regenix work??? I have been on the program my scalp feels clean and tight, it seems as though you are rubbing alcohol on your head, the smell stinks like booze, but I paid for it so I used it. DONT rely on BBB TO be your sorce for information.. I own my own business and when we get a BBB complaint all we have to do is answer it doest matter weather the customer is satisfied we still keep our A rating, that is what you pay for... Remember the BBB charges over $300 to be a member MONEY, MONEY, So if money is not your issue, try regenix ask for a money back Guarantee--- they only guarantee certain cases. So buyer beware , so sorry I cant tell you it is fabulous... I dont eat right and my diet can use some structure, so maybe its not he Booze that will help my scalp its the food

My wife forced me into going to Regenix because she thought I was losing hair. I didn't care. They did their routine exam on both of us, said my hair was generally pretty good, but my scalp problems could be eliminated, and after a couple of months I could switch to another shampoo they don't make. She got a somewhat different treatment for cleaning follicles. We have both been happy with the results. We reduced the amounts of the expensive tubes, and with a little suggestion they said the smaller amounts were just fine. People with lots of long hair might need more to get it to the scalp though. The bottom line is that they never promised to grow hair, it did what they said and what we expected, and we are quite happy.

Spencer Korben is a consumer advocate. He stated that Regenix is a scam. My dermatologist also stated that regenix is a scam. The hair loss industry is mostly full of scams. Ony propecia and rogaine are the scientifically proven products that can help hairloss.
nothing regenix has will get rid of the DHT responsible for hair follicle destruction and consequent hair thinning and loss. You cannot put something topical on your hair and expect that to remove DHT in your roots--this is why my doctor says its a scam. They have no scientific backing. I don't know who these people are posting above, but they offer no references for anything valid. Just because Matt Mac says he used it, are we so naive to believe him? Is an actor the only proof they have? Lets see an unbiased university study on regenix and then look at those results. None exist so that should also tell you something.
My dermatologist suggested rogaine and propecia because they have valid third party claims that it works. He also recommended nizoral and a tar shampoo for my scalp itch problem. These products will run you well under $50 a month if you use all of them.
The BBB report for regenix is getting worse. There are more complaints. The complaints are addressed, but half are resolved with just allowing the patient to continue in their program. There must have been serious doubts about the program and when the customer called them on it, they pointed out that he/she was not doing the procedures right or some crap like that in order not to have to issue a refund. Once the customer complained that Regenix reneged on their guarantee, they simply took him back as a client to this time show him the right way to do the program. Regenix gets credit for addressing the complaint while the consumer is stuck shelling out more cash. I think this is the way the scenario played out.
