    I have no idea as to if there will be yet another phase test after this 3rd one.
    Time will tell of course.
    I can ask Dr. Wesley if in fact i can post any initial photos of my phase test.
    The only scar that could possibly be seen would be a SMALL ONE from the Endoscopic instrument.
    There is NO linear scaring with this type of new treatment.
    Artista you say you had 23 follicles taken via pilofocus. Were the other 500 taken via FUE? Or is this a typo?

    what for??? what's the point of doing 500 FUE grafts when it's all about the new pilofocus technique?

    Why not?
    The main focus of the phase testing is that of the donor area regeneration aspect in correlation to his FUE work

    doesn't make sense at all.
    ok, maybe for his study and documentation he needs a direct comparison with FUE, but why so many? why not take e.g. 50 FUE extractions versus 50 pilofocus extractions as direct comparison?
    and why are you even willing to get 500 FUE punches when the main advantage of pilofocus is to be scarless? the anecdotal donor regeneration will be proven to be non-existent or not efficient enough anyway.
    if the purpose of this phase testing is to proof donor regeneration, then 500 FUEs compared to only a handful pilofocus extractions don't really make sense.

    Why does he think his technique is supposed to lead to donor regeneration? It's not obvious to me why a follicle would return.

    Yes I tend to agree if it was for comparison why take so many FUE and so little pilofocus. Very strange

    Hi Artista,

    Glad you finally got into the phase testing. You have spoken about donor regeneration but I have heard Dr. Wesley say several times that they had only worked on cadavers when people started talking about regeneration (which would obviously be impossible). I am wondering why you believe in the regeneration aspect, have you seen donor regeneration on real patients? If yes, is it true significant regeneration?

    Thanks.

    It is good to see that something is going on in HT industry.

    BUT 23 pilo vs 500 FUE grafts is a bit disappointing, 50 grafts each on a small square would be much more desirable

    He seems nice, honest and genuine and i Hope he speeds this up or else other players will come in and steal the show


    Dr Christophe Guillemat from barcelona recently named his new cloning technique Stem Cell Transfer (SCT), he already completed one test and is about do big trials where he will transfer a few thousands stem cells in one go, if all good it will be avail from September.
    He seems very transparent and active on his websites blog

    Don't get me wrong, I am very thoroughly impressed with Dr. Wesleys work, you'd be a fool not to be... the only factor I am having trouble comprehending is the follicle regeneration. I don't see how this technique would be able to remove so much tissue and just expect the follicle to start functioning again at a normal level. I think the main benefit we will see with his technique is minimal scarring.
