I think existing follicles extend something like 3-4 mm down into the skin. Dermabrasion probably couldn’t safely wipe out any more than about 1mm of skin.
Once and for all – Do we have any indication of how the Folica method affects the existing follicles?
I see so many possibilities:
– Wipe out existing follicles? Create new ones on their sites?
– Create new ones between the existing ones? (Doesn’t that have to mean we’d end up with MORE than original density?)
– Heal the existing follicles along with new ones? ONLY heal the existing follicles and not create any fully-formed new ones?
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I just can’t mentally put this issue aside as a minor technicality to be hashed out later on. Finding a method of creating 50 all-new hairs per cm2 doesn’t sound quite so grand anymore if it demands permanently wiping out 150 existing hairs/cm2 on the site.
