» wounding means you have to hurt or even destroy tissue on the scalp and

WHAT FOLLICA INTENDS TO DO IS SIMPLY DERMABRATE THINNING AREAS OR USE A CO2 LASER UPON THEM, ONLY THE EPILTHIAL LAYER OF SKIN WILL BE REMOVED, LEAVING THE SKIN “PINK AND SHINY”, THERE IS NO BLOOD.

» if you wound the scalp where it’s thinning, doesn’t that mean you destroy
» good hair follicles? HOW DEEP IN THE DERMIS DO YOU THINK A HAIR FOLLICE RESIDES? THEY ARE 2-4 CM DOWN THERE, WELL WELL WELL BELOW THE EPILTHIAL LAYER OF SKIN. HOWEVER, IF YOU’D LIKE TO GET RID OF HAIR FOLLICLES, THEY HAVE A METHOD FOR THAT IN THEIR PATENT. INSTEAD OF BLOCKIN EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR, THEY WILL ADD IT. THEY WOULD ALSO DEPILATE THE HAIR A PRECISE TIME BEFOREHAND TO MAKE SURE ALL THE VELLUS HAIRS ARE AT THE VERY TOP OF THE DERMIS SO THEY COULD BE IN THE CORRECT PHASE WHEN THE WOUNDING WAS ENACTED TO DO SO> »

ALL THAT BEING SAID_____________WE HAVE NO IDEA IF IT WILL ACTUALLY WORK IN HUMAN BEINGS. IT MAY NOT. As I have pointed out before, our vellus hairs apparently regrow as big or bigger than donor hair when moved to immuno-deficeint mice…so the human immune system may have say on whether we can generate hairs in this way or not. Plus, they may become sensitive to male hormone within a year or so afterwards even if they grew when made in the balding area…this is also not really known.
But I will tell you how to not know much of anything…Simply dont read the patent and post your drive-by impressions about it. Thats how to really not know.
