The Pilogics startup company under the direction of Professor Dov Ingman is the driving force behind the research and development for the Hairegen technology.
Professor Ingman is a very well regarded lecturer in nuclear physics at the Haifa Technion. His unusual and exceptional creativity has led to the development of a number of patents based on his non-conventional vision and his physicist’s perspective on solving day to day problems.
Professor Ingman suffered from hereditary baldness for many years. Until 2007, he tried to deal with his baldness using conventional methods, including medications. When existing methods had failed to provide any solution, Professor Ingman began developing new technologies for the treatment of baldness and in 2009; he realized that the device based on his newly developed technology was the critical pathway to achieving results. He presented his ideas for the development of the technologically advanced product, which could revitalize atrophied hair follicles and restore their full functionality. Naturally, he became the first to test the device under development.
As the months passed, to the astonishment of his family and friends, the technology proposed by Professor Ingman proved itself and new hair began growing on his head; despite his age and his many years of baldness, previously defined by the doctors as a lost cause.
The surprising results persuaded investors and many potential users to take an interest in the product and its development.
The second prototype of the commercial product was distributed in 2010 to dozens of men and women suffering from thinning hair, rapid hair loss and baldness. The results were soon in. New hair had begun to grow in thinly populated areas; hair thickness and growth rate went up and the scalp became thicker and more flexible. Hair growth was seen in bald areas and users reported significant, consistent improvements as they continued using the device.
In view of that success, Pilogics developed the technology further and monitored its beneficial effects on hundreds of additional users. Finally, development of the commercial product for home use was complete in the form known today as: Hairegen.
