No - no way!
Compare the pics of both trail subjects (S2018 vs S1016) again:
Subject 2018 IS definitely the same area, same trail subject. It’s simply obvious – actually at a glance
. This is clearly not so
with trail subject 1016
, because WHERE are the existing terminal hairs/FU’s from the baseline pic in the 3 month pic?
Furthermore, a specific pattern/positioning of follicular units (FU’s) DOESN’T dramatically change not even after decades (like your nose - your nose will always be in the middle of your face!) – especially not that extreme just within 3 month (!!) as shown in the after pic of S1016. So again, where is the existing pattern/positioning of all EXISTING thick terminal hairs of the baseline pic in the 3 month pic? As you can SEE yourself, this is –of course- not so
with trail subject S2018. S2018 neither changed its FU-pattern in general, nor a change of the positions of the existing terminal hairs/follicular units - what finally made a side-by-side comparision possible and pretty easy.
A certain pattern of follicular units is like a FINGERPRINT!
S1016 = NO MATCH!
