"…There are about 250 hair fibers per cm2, which results, for a typical individual, in a hair surface area of 50,000 cm2 relative to the scalp surface area of 600 cm2."
"Scalp is divided into 4 areas namely, Vertex - 40% (0.4) of scalp surface area; right profile of scalp - 18% (0.18) of scalp surface area; left profile of scalp - 18% (0.18) of scalp surface area; Posterior aspect of scalp - 24% (0.24) of scalp surface area."
So, if the vertex is %40 of the Scalp surface area, and 600cm2 is a good working average for total scalp surface area, that’s a Scalp Vertex area (the bald part) of about 240 cm2 on our heads.
Here’s a joking little calculation…Say just for the sake of example that the Phase 1 results of 66 hairs per 100 injections were all that ICX could produce, and a goal of 250 hairs per cm2 (per the avg. stated above) is considered to be ‘a full head of densely packed hair’…Then, to take a completely slick bald head of 240cm2 surface area (assuming HM works on slick bald areas) and give it a full head of hair (250hairs/cm2), it would take 379 injections per cm2 at this rate, and 90,960 (yes that’s ninety-thousand nine-hundred sixty) injections for the entire top o’ the head. At 5 seconds per injection (Phase 1 time/injection), this would take 5 days and 6 hours or so of injections. Of course I’m just joking around and this is ridiculous, but I think that’s how those numbers would play out…if all we wanted was say, 125 hairs per cm2 instead of 250 at Phase 1 Result rates, it would take half the amount of injections- 45 thousand injections and over 2 days to administer. Now let’s say they got the efficacy up to 100 hairs per 100 injections, for 125 hairs per cm2 it would take 30,000 injections and about 1.75 days to do all those injections on a completely slick bald head.
Of course most will want HM in only a small portion of the top of their head not the entire thing including areas that still have some hair…so cut the numbers down how you will. Maybe just 100 hairs per cm2 is enough for you. But if you just got %10 of your slick bald head done, at the rate of Phase 1 results wanting 125 hairs per cm2 as a decent goal, that’s 14,400 injections and a 18 hour total procedure.
I think we can see numerically, exactly why HM is going to be just ‘in addition to’ Hair Transplants, at first until there are later HM breakthrough’s with much higher efficacy and speed of delivery (assuming HM works at all!!).
