Timeline for Dr. Jones\'s Patient to Regrow Hair in Scar

About how long would we have to wait until hair would start to grow from the wound, assuming hair will grow?

probably a couple of months to be honest…maybe a few weeks sooner, but then again maybe a couple of weeks later. Hair has to form in the new dermis and then grow up to reach the surface of the skin. In any event it would probably not be as mature as an adult’s hair at first and would thicken over time…Even if it worked like gangbusters, it might be six months before the patient saw the full effect.

Im hoping it works though. I cannot believe that there seem to be some who are actually rooting against this for whatever personal reason. It would be a great advance, especially for strip scar transplantation which IS more economical than FUE and less labor intensive. Lets hope for the best, but be realistic that it could fail.

Im glad its being tried. After 2 or 3 people with relatively good donor areas have it tried on them by Dr. Jones, we should pretty much know the story one way or the other. Wish him luck

I’d say 3-4 months
