HairCell

Unknown-2 Unknow2nHairCell is a startup in the Leonhardt Ventures’s Cal-X Stars 5 Year Business Accelerator and Leonhardt’s Launchpads NorCal @ University of Northern California Science & Technology Innovation Center focused on hair regeneration.

The HairCell technology platform is based on the Leonhardt et. al patent and patent pending portfolio of technologies for a regeneration micro stimulator that controls expressions of specific proteins on demand for specific regenerative purposes in sequence.

1. SDF-1 (stem cell homing factor – recruits a persons own stem cells to stimulated tissues).

2. VEGF (for new blood vessel growth).

3  IGF-1 (for DNA repair at the nucleus level). 

4. Follistatin (for muscle and tissue regeneration).

5. RANKL (for demineralization and tissue loosening when needed).

6. Hepatocyte Growth Factor  (tissue regeneration)

7. eNOS (for dilating blood vessels for increasing flow).

8.  Tropoelastin (increases elasticity of any tissues such as skin, arteries, aorta, heart and promotes healing of wounds).

bioThe stimulation signals are delivered non-invasively via a specially designed electrode equipped helmet which as originally designed for brain EEG analysis.   The micro stimulator is connected to this helmet and lies just behind the ear.

For very severe difficult cases and for more rapid hair regeneration we combine our micro stimulator with a stem cell/growth factor micro pump www.fluidsynchrony.com in our most advanced model which will be connected to a special device with low depth penetration hollow electro-acupuncture needles. 

device

The company is also working on a wireless version.

PROVISIONAL APPLICATION FOR PATENT

INVENTION TITLE

A method and apparatus for producing hair growth stimulation using bioelectric energy, topical compositions, stem cell/growth factor micro infusions and combinations thereof. By using bioelectric signaling resulting from specific protein expressions and their cellular responses to exposure to specific micro voltages.

Problem Solved: Many people lose hair as they age.  Thin hair causes loss of self-esteem.

Other methods and devices at best increase hair coverage by 10%.

Our device controls release of SDF-1 a stem cell homing factor as well as IGF-1, HGF, EGF, Follistatin, Tropoelastin, eNOS and VEGF as well as micro infusion delivery of a 15 component hair regeneration cocktail which includes nutrient hydrogel, thus providing all the supporting element to grow a full head of hair.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

As stated above, many people lose hair as they age.  Thin hair causes loss of self-esteem. The invention claimed here solves this problem.

Our devices utilizes specific bioelectric signals to control release of 10 key hair regeneration proteins and for severe cases is combined with a stem cell/growth factor micro infusion pump to regenerate a full head of hair.

The claimed invention differs from what currently exists. No other product delivers a full complete combination of growth factors and stem cells necessary for complete and full hair regeneration.

This invention is an improvement on what currently exists. No other product delivers a full complete combination of growth factors and stem cells necessary for complete and full hair regeneration.

Prior art fails to address all the mechanisms necessary for complete hair regeneration.  Most current treatments have nowhere near the volume of active agent necessary to regenerate a full head of thick hair.

Our device controls release of SDF-1 a stem cell homing factor as well as IGF-1, HGF, EGF, Follistatin, Tropoelastin, eNOS and VEGF as well as micro infusion delivery of a 15 component hair regeneration cocktail which includes nutrient hydrogel, thus providing all the supporting element to grow a full head of hair.

Also, it can produce Hair regeneration.  Hair removal.  Skin regeneration.
