Amazing Dr Ross! Was this not a third degree burn? I thought that problems with circulation and functions in the deeper layers of skin such as lubrication of follicles etc result from a burn.Thanks

That is amazing and that's a good question. I guess since the skin was grafted too the hair grafts were able to take and grow. Iím just guessing of course.

We found that with the patientís diligent use of minoxodil 5% her circulation and tissue improved!
