Hi Bald-HalfTruth, thanks your your much-awaited reply.
I am sorry you got in trouble. Was it because you posted here?
There is something I don’t understand: you said that your couldn’t post here freely because your identity was revealed. How was that?
As you talk about 1 new har for each 4 preexistant hairs, I assume the test area is not completely bald, but just thinning, is that correct?
But you said there were 4 test areas…in which area are you having regrowth?
If it is thinning, and not bald, this is bad news, because I expected a totally bald area. ICX and Histogen also tested on thinning areas. Regrowing hair on thinning areas is easier, because you have weakened follicles that you can revive. 20% or 25% is achievable with Minoxidil, or Propecia, or Histogen.
so, maybe, these follicles are not new, but just rejuvenated. This is surprising to me, because I expected ARI to use scaffolds, and this means, I think, neogenesis.
Still, note that we don’t know the number of “injections” or scaffolds. Maybe you got 1 hair for each 4 preexisting hairs, because you only got 1 injection/scaffold for each 4 preexisting hairs. The important figure is number of hairs per injection/scaffolds. (should be 1/1)
The good news is that you are a real trialist. The good news is that you are not the best, handpicked result. If we consider this, 20% or 25% increase could be considered a good starting point.
We will see if you still can increase the number of hairs. When were you injected?
In the previous update you said that you were seeing new, colourless hairs, but you had seen the same result with Propecia (I assume you quit Propecia afterwards) and these “propecia hairs” never
got colour. Are now the “ARI-hairs” getting colour?.
again, thanks for the update, and sorry for so many questions
