I know–I saw that.
But I was hoping Hitzig might have more info on it.
BTW, as for the fineness of the hair shown growing in the punch sites in Cooley’s slide: if I remember correctly, those new hairs were still short, so they might be fine simply because they are so new.
Even when normal new hairs first start growing, they are so fine as to be almost invisible to the casual observer. It’s not until they get to be about a half inch long that they start to become easily visible, because their diameter has increased enough down towards the base for you eye to notice them.
Think of ear hair. One day you look for any hair growing from your ears to trim, and you see nothing.
A day or two later, you look again, and suddenly you notice one or two long hairs growing from your ear. Their length means they were there the last time you looked, but their diameter then was still to fine for you to easily notice them.
So if I’m interpreting Cooley’s slide correctly, it’s very possible the hairs growing in those punch sites will increase in diameter as they continue to grow.
» Yes, look at Cooley’s part II.
» When he punches out a 4mm hole with transections at the edge, and puts
» Acell inside, the wound closes and:
» 1.-There is no scar tissue. It feels like normal skin.
» 2. It is pigmented.
» 3. It grows new hair, although this hair is finer than normal, and we
» don’t know how long it will last.
» This presumably applies too for 5mm punches, as long as there are
» transections at the edge.
