1. During ANY type of hair transplant (FUE, FUT, HST), the thing that makes a follicle regenerate in the recipient area are the stemcells located at the bottom of a hair follicle (or at the bottom of a follicular unit).
When a FUE or FUT doctor removes the entire follicle for transplant in the recipient, there is regrowth in the recipient and not the donor. I have no citation for this, but we can all agree this is a fact.
When doctors in this study
transected follicles HORIZONTALLY, taking the top 1/3 and leaving the bottom 2/3 in the donor, they found to have VERY low growth in the recipient, and up to 85% regrowth in the donor. This leads us to believe that any type of "hair transplant" isn't actually a "hair transplants", but a stemcell transplant, specifically the stemcells around the base of follicles or follicular units. TRUE OR FALSE?
2. If you are able to somehow get some of the stemcells at the base out for recipient transplantation, while leaving some of those stemcells in the donor extraction point, then you could see regeneration in the recipient and the donor. Theoretically, you'd do this by VERTICAL transection of follicles or FUs. (<---guess who offers this)
Seeing as assumption #1 is DEFINITELY TRUE
, then assumtion #2 is theoretically possible FOR SURE.... TRUE OR FALSE?
okay, now that we agree it is possible in theory
, you're ready for the big one: it was tested by an independent group of italian scientists and found to be POSSIBLE IN REAL LIFE! it was also studied and published by gho, and found to be true by him too.
NOW WHAT DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND? THE ARGUMENT IS OVER. GHO WORKS. WAKE UP.
prove either of the above statements wrong, and you prove gho wrong. Unfortunately, you can't prove the above two statements wrong, because they are true. so... Tracy, if you want to use a lazer comb, go for it, but dont spread lies about the science behind Dr. Gho's technique.
