Cal, I see your point but I disagree with it. Dr. Armani did not try to sell me any idea. It was purely a discussion that we had that did not incorporate sales. The last time I had this discussion with him, he thought HM would be about “10 years away”. This was about 3 years ago. The fact that he changed his motto is something to be positive about. Minox and Finasteride may have been used by Bosley to increase sales, but stem cells being used in HT’s are way different than Minox and Finasteride. Creating cells and having them grow is not the same concept as strengthening existing hair and potentially growing back hair that was once there.
Well, you’ve got a right to your opinion and so do I.
But, we’re talking about a HT surgeon who is going to beat a biological problem like HM? (Never mind the specifics of one HM idea or another, it’s basically a biological science issue and not surgical one no matter how you stack it.)
This is sorta like a car body repair man who is gonna grow a softer tree trunk to plant on the side of the road to damage cars less. He might have the idea, but I REALLY doubt that guy is gonna be the one that succeeds at doing it. He’s not likely to be the one who succeeds at genetically engineering a tree to a degree that nobody else in the entire scientific community has come even close to doing. Welding and spraying paint on sheetmetal is one thing, but genetically engineering a plant modification is something entirely different. The body man might be just as intelligent as the geneticist but their respective fields of specialization are miles apart.
Now, start with that.
Throw in the fact that Armani has been lying his ass off about his donor supply harvesting capabilities for years and years already. (I’m not open to discussing whether this point is true or not.) We’re talking about a precedent of decieving patients for the sake of increased short-term business and status within the HT industry.
Now add the fact that this “working on something at the cellular level” is the only sentence their clinic has ever put out there about the project, with absolutely NO HINT of anything more specific than this.
Then add the point that they were saying this at least 1-2 years ago as I recall (and I think the original mentioned tentative release date was something like 18-24 months away back then). There has been no elaboration on the plan or timeline talks since then . . . This is the same pattern as so many of his clinic’s other “proof is on the way” stories the clinic gives whenever proof of his claimed HT abilities is requested. They keep buying time with more promises until the skeptics just get tired of arguing about it.
My mind is made up. I’ll call him a liar until he produces something more concrete.
