The thing is that Roger_that says that repeat (hm) injections would be better because when these cells are being injected they are randomly hitting some follicles, and not others, so if you keep doing injections sooner or later you will eventually get the new cells into all of the follicles.
I think Roger_that is incorrect.
The reason I think Roger_that is incorrect and the reason I think repeat injections will work better, are the same reason.
If Roger_that were right then the hair improvement would be random throughout the bald area. You’d get a new hair here and there scatter-shot throughout the bald are. But that isn’t what’s happening. What is happening is that the hairs on the outer-rim of the crown were getting thicker while there was only a little bit of improvement more to the inside of the crown.
This means that the cells are not affecting the follicles in a random manner, but rather the cells are improving the quality of the most recently lost hairs which would also be the strongest hairs among the lost hairs.
This means that cell injections do work and if it will work on the lost hairs that are most recently lost (and therefor the strongest follicles among the follicles that are shutting down) then there is no reason to think that it won’t also work on the more damaged follicles that have lost hair longer, but it would just require more cells to be injected at more dates.
The point is that the process works and of course the least damaged follicles will be the easiest to treat and will require the least amount of treatment to show improvement. So the hairs you most recently lost would require one treatment but if you want to get hair from the follicles that have been damaged longer you will have to have more treatments.
