Does Fibrocell even have a direct sales force to push LaViv? I looked on website and they are looking for VP sales and Sales Directors. Probably a good indication as to why sales are slow?
I have been in medical device sales for over 10 years and would love to sell this product....give them some time....I know this will be huge based on conversations with some of my buddies who are plastic surgeons.
Optimism abounds here, like it should, eh. However, if this product was about to explode on the aesthetic market like all of you are hoping and predicting, how come all the BIG guys on the block are not even sniffing at this LaViv process.
Allergan even drove by the FCSC offices in PA to purchase a privately held concern with a product in stage 2 development.
Now this tells me, the BIG DAWGS' eminent scientists in R&D have checked this Laviv product out and deemed it not worth the money nor effort.
If Laviv was going to be a factor, you figure one of the BIG 3 wrinkle filler players would have bought in by now, to get the upper hand on the other two. You figure the current market cap of FCSC is pennies to the BIG players. Yet, we are seeing what amounts to a HUGE snub! They just don't see any upside to the product.
ah dmess, you provided some entertainment to an otherwise boring wait at the airport. i clicked on your history to see just who the new basher is, and wow you forgot to change your alias before posting on the allergan board. so here's your post: Allergan cure for baldness stealthily but, steadily moves along. Success with this treatment has the potential to be HUGE and very lucrative for AGN...
I have my fingers crossed because I could be a highly motivated user of this product.
now it is clear to me. you are partial to botox and afraid laviv might cut into your agn market, and you're bald to boot. maybe if laviv can find a way to grow your hair back, you might convert??? lol. thanks for the entertainment!
They have already said that for the nest 6 months or so they will just be working with the 30 or so docs they already are close with. Likely these are the same ones who were selling it back in the 90's.
You really do not need a sales team when everybody involved is likely on a first name basis with the CEO.
To grow they first need to get their training program in place, and expand manufacturing. Did they keep the London equipment after they closed that operation to stop the bleeding?
A little birdie told me the number of docs signed up for training was over 100 as of last month. How they will keep up with the manufacturing is still a very good question, which is why I think they're working on some type of partnership.
