WILL NIOSTEM WORK FOR ME?

Niostem is focused on reawakening the dormant hair stem cells, thus targeting the core problem of male pattern baldness. Our technology stimulates stem cells through a pioneering process called low level bioelectrical stimulation.

Through this method, hair stem cells are encouraged to convert into progenitor cells, thereby effectively kickstarting the regrowth process at a cellular level.

This method is non-invasive, and does not require any medications - thus not causing nasty side-effects!

The efficacy has been tested in a 6-month pilot trial with 22 males, having male pattern baldness, with Norwood Scales 2-5, aged 20-50 yrs).

The results:
- After 3 months: 95.4% stopped hair loss
- After 6 months: 100% of testers stopped hair loss and on avg. increased their hair density by 19.3%. That's 19% more hair.

When comparing results to other solutions in the market, the niostem wearable is 6x more effective than Finasteride in half the time.

How is niostem different?

There are many products on the market that promise hair regrowth, however most still utilize the same old approach of trying to block testosterone (DHT), which can lead to several side-effects!

Other products like lasers, derma rollers, caffeine serums, etc. try to stimulate blood flow and thus increase availability of nutrients in the follicles. Usually with limited efficacy.

niostem is different. Our solution tackles the root cause of hair loss. Dormant stem cells. During hair loss hair follicles that actually produce the hair start to miniaturize. And this miniaturization is happening because the stem cells start working properly. By using low level bioelectrical stimulation niostem reactivates proper cell functionality without meddling with the hormones. The activated stem cells trigger follicle growth which ultimately leads to healthier and stronger hair.

In a nutshell: By focusing on cellular growth, we were able to not only stop hair loss but effectively reverse it.

What Stage of Hair Loss Do You Recommend the niostem Wearable?

The device can be used by anyone aged 18+ years with male pattern baldness, also known as common hair loss, which affects 90% of men and around 30% of women with hair loss. niostem has been proven to work in a pilot study with men, aged 20-50 years, with Norwood stages 2-5.

We designed our wearable to be primarily used by people suffering from the early to mid-stages of male pattern baldness, because cells in this stage typically have better chances of being reactivated.

In cases of late-stage baldness, cells could be already dormant for too long, thus might have degenerated, impairing the functionality of the device.

The good news is that a human typically has >100.000 follicles thus chances are high that thousands are still active and susceptible for reactivation.

Do I need to use niostem every day?

Yes, we recommend using the niostem wearable daily. In our studies 30 min / day has proven to have the best outcome.

But in case you miss a few sessions, that will not impair the functionality.

We strongly recommend at least 6 out of 7 days.

How long will it take to see results?

Based on the pilot trial in the first 3 months testers visually have seen less hair fall. They reported less hair on the pillow, blankets, bathroom sink, etc.

Between 3 - 6 months most people have seen first signs of regrowth, both for hair density and hair thickness.

Beyond 6 months you can expect to see increased results of regrowth and recovery of bald areas where the hair follicles were previously miniaturized.

The results are compounding with time, meaning they get better the longer the wearable is in use, so we highly recommend a 1+ year usage.

Please note: Individual results may vary depending on the degree of your hair loss, health, age, hair type, nutrition or other medical conditions. So any results mentioned are always average figures across the total trial participants.

How long do I need to use my niostem device once I have achieved my hair growth goals?

For as long as you wish to keep your hair healthy, you will need to continue using the niostem wearable, because the leading cause of hair loss, DHT, will still be present in your body.

We recommend daily use, but we will continue to test and improve our product, and work on reducing the frequency of usage once our customers' hair growth goals have been achieved. This should work very much like a teeth retainer to keep teeth aligned after a standard orthodontic procedure.

Can niostem be used on women?

The niostem device is designed to target those follicles that are dormant or miniaturized due to the condition of pattern baldness. Regardless of gender, biology works the same.

However, women tend to suffer from an array of different hair loss types, hence a correct diagnosis from a professional is essential.

Additionally, we are currently running a clinical trial with women and are expecting results by August 2024.

Does niostem only work on the areas where the electrodes are placed?

No, by having 11 interconnected electrodes we create an invisible network on the scalp thus targeting uniformly DHT-sensitive areas on the upper scalp.

Can I use niostem if I have had a hair transplant?

Yes, first testers reported very good results by combining both the niostem wearable post transplantation.

A combination of both solutions is a very powerful way to maximize hair in the shortest amount of time.

However, we are still lacking data on hair density post >2-3+ years, thus having a lot of unlocked potential.

Is niostem safe?

Yes! niostem is very safe.

Bioelectrical stimulation has been used in different applications since the 90s (neuromuscular, ophthalmological, nerve and other stimulation fields). To date no adverse effects have been reported.

Additionally, our device complies with European health, safety, and environmental protection standards (CE).

What is the legal warranty policy for the device?

We are offering a 2-year warranty for our product, in accordance with EU regulations.

The legal warranty covers any hardware defects presumed to have existed at the time of delivery.

When will niostem be available?

Official sales starting in Q2 2024.

Shipping starts in February 2024 and will take until July for all that is already pre-ordered.

Are there any contraindications for the use of niostem?

niostem has been tested in healthy individuals and has shown no severe adverse side effects.

However, as niostem has not been tested in individuals with a variety of health conditions (see below), we do not recommend its use in people who are affected by/with or suffering from: mid to severe or chronic skin inflammation, taking medications that may affect the skin reactions (e.g. glucocorticoids, anti-allergic drugs, immunomodulators), severe skin allergies or ever experienced serious side effects from skin products, scalp burns e.g. via sunburns or chemical burns or irritations, any type of skin, brain or bone or any other cancer located on the head, mental problems, epilepsy, schizophrenia, mental retardation or dysfunction or paralysis or any other impairment, conditions on the the scalp that affect skin integrity and function including but not limited to: wounds, irritations, hematomas, blisters, herpes, other abrasions, or skin conditions such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, scarring alopecia or any other scaring condition of the skin, acne, bleeding, etc.

Do I need to do anything with my hair before I start using it like (haircut, dry it etc.,)?

The niostem device can be used on wet, towel-dried hair or dry hair.

Also, our electrodes are designed to pierce the hair, so technically there is no no need for short hair styles because of the shape.

But under all circumstances the electrodes have to touch the scalp to ensure the flow of the electricaö stimulation.

The App helps you adjust the device and connect it to your scalp.

What type of shampoo should I be using, and how often?

The type of shampoo used will not affect the niostem device. However, for general hair and scalp health, shampoos containing sulphur (which helps the shampoo to lather) are recommended to be avoided as they can unnecessarily strip your hair and scalp of oil, resulting in dry, brittle hair.

Can the device be used for more than 30 minutes or several times a day to increase the effect?

The device can only be used for 30 minutes, 1 session per day.

Can I share my niostem device with other people?

The niostem device can certainly be shared with other people. However, it will still be limited to one session per day when paired with the app. Likewise, the log data will be personal.

Can I use the device and other hair growing products together?

The niostem device will not interfere with your medicines or other anti hair loss products.

In an in-house study, the niostem device was proven more effective than medicine when used alone. Therefore, combining solutions could be unnecessary because of the way it works through stem cell reactivation technology, as it's not essential to block the effects of DHT or increase blood flow to the hair follicle.

On the other hand, it is well known in the hair loss market that combinations of approaches can have additive effects.

Niostem has no data to date on combinations with the device.

We recommend you discuss any prescription medicine with your doctor for your specific situation.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Based on niostem pilot results, 95.4% of participants stopped their hair loss after 3 months 86.3% of them showed hair regrowth with an increase in hair shaft density (mean increase of 12% compared to baseline).
That means, during the first 12 weeks most people can expect to stop hair loss and visually see less fallen hair on the pillow, blankets, bathroom sink, etc.

After 12 – 24 weeks, most people see by themselves the first signs of regrowth in both hair density and hair thickness.

Beyond 24 weeks: 100% of participants stopped their hair loss, and 100% showed hair regrowth. The increase in hair shaft density (19.3% mean increase) and 9% increase in hair thickness.

You can expect to see increased results of regrowth and recovery on bald areas where the hair follicles were previously miniaturized.

Please note: Individual results may vary depending on the degree of your hair loss, health, age, hair type, nutrition or other medical conditions present.

Does wearing the device change the cell structure in any way?

No, we do not change any cell structures. You can imagine it like jump starting your engine and then the engine continues to work and just requires occasional impulses to stay on. But we are not changing any property of your engine.

Are there side effects?

The niostem device was well tolerated during testing, with no serious side effects reported. Minimal adverse effects included an itchy scalp (scalp pruritus; 9%) and slight headache in the first 2-4 days after the initial use (4.5%), which are also common with approved drugs and laser caps (Adil et al. 2017). All these effects disappeared after a week of use.
