Anyone else holding off on getting a HT because of emerging technology? I am. Consider this:
A year ago, it was necessary to get a buzz cut in your donor area if you wanted FUE. Now, Dr Cole has developed a technology that makes that unecessary. As a former strip session recipient, that is no small matter.
Up until now, people with strip scars had two choices: wear your hair long enough to hide the scars, or use precious donor hair to fill the scars in. Now, it’s possible Acell may change all that. It may be that strip scars can be cut out, Acell used in the opening, and scarless skin may fill the opening.
Up until now, donor hair was a finite resource. Now, it’s possible Acell may change that, too. It’s possible that using Acell in the empty donor “slots” may cause hair to grow where the previous hair was just removed.
The latter two are, as I said, only possibilities. But, they are possible enough to convince me that I may kick myself in a year if I spend a lot of money and donor hair filling in scars or moving hair that, had I waited, I could have immediately replaced with new hair. And, I would not be surprised if, as Dr Cole becomes more adept at his new technology, his prices may drop a little.
So, again, my question is, is anyone else struggling with the desire for a HT, but the feeling that he should wait?
