Who says the hairs will even last for 3 years?
It’s not a question of two alternatives:
(A) The hairs are normal and cycle indefinitely
(B) The hairs will last for one full cycle, that means 3 years
You’re forgetting that there’s a realistic THIRD alternative, which is that the hairs are weak and either fall out or turn into vellus follicles well before the 3 year mark. The likelihood that they fall out much sooner than 3 years is very real.
Besides that, there’s a good chance that you won’t get that high a yield – 15,000 new follicles from 15,000 implants. Remember, we’re talking about plucked hairs. Who says these plucked-hair implants have a 100% yield, and that 100% of the implants produce cosmetically good terminal hairs?
I sure haven’t seen hard evidence of any of that.
I’m not trying to doubt Dr. Cooley’s research here – but I think he’d be the first one to say that we don’t really know these things yet.
You are acting like you DO know all these things. How do you know? Tell me where you got your degrees in Cytology, Trichology, Medicine, etc.
And anyone who wants to refute anything I’ve said here, please just refute it with normal arguments, in a decent way, without ad hominem attacks.
Just because I doubt these things doesn’t mean I’m attacking HM or doubting the whole concept.
I just see a lot of people believing a lot of things wholesale, without proof, and wearing blinders when it comes to valid and legitimate contrary arguments.
