same procedures, different marketing terms

i think after so many years of no prp successes, the fat injection procedure seems to be the next hype for making a quick buck.
when PRP came out, one doctor after another started offering it, because it's easy to do and costs little money, but they can cash in many thousands of it.
now, the same goes with the fat cell hype. while i agree that the theory makes somehow sense and maybe 1 out of 10 will see some slight but almost negligible improvement, it's totally not worth the money.
but the system works like this: many desperate ones don't care about the money and give it a shot anyway, even if the chance of improvement is very low. thus, the clinics make millions out of such a treatment again.
it's really an easy and riskless game for a beauty doc. extracting fat cells is easy and fast, and there's practically zero risk of side effects. so they can just start offering such a treatment over night. combine it with PRP and born is the new marketing hype and final cure for hairloss.
in some years, when the hype is over, some doc will come up with an even more improvement version of PRP+fat+vitaminC and whatelse.
so far however, there is really no real improvement reported from such treatments. best case were some shady before/after pics with almost negligible improvments.
kerastem is useless too, if you ask me. the benefits are just too small.
and so the trend continues, while surgeons get richer and richer and baldies stay bald forever.

Anything that's not going through proper clinical trials is automatic bullshit as far as I'm concerned.

Only hair multiplication is worth our attention...
