    Default Replicel and diffuse thinners

    The way replicel works is by taking dermal sheath cup cells from androgen resistant hairs at the back of the head and injecting them to thinning, balding areas. But what about us diffuse thinners? (also includes a large majority of the women with AGA.) Wouldn't be hard to pick out what the androgen resistant hairs are?

    I think that is a good question. In fact, I have some diffuse thinning on sides and top, so I wonder how they will do it.

    Yeah I am thinking that Replicel won't be a "cure" for diffuse thinners. :/

    I think they will be able to find some healthy, not miniaturized hair for small biopsy. And I think that diffusers will benefit from RCH-01 the most.

    I hear what you are saying. The problem is even if the hair looks healthy now in diffuse thinners, it doesn't mean it doesn't have the potential to miniaturize someday right? Since diffuse thinners gradually have healthy hairs thin out...Whereas most non-diffuse thinners retain good hair follicles at the back of their head for most of their life time. Hope I am making sense here. And hope you can convince me that I am wrong. haha.

    I think when diffuse thinning is advanced it's pretty noticeable which hairs are healthy and which are not. I have retrograde thinning (nw6 thinning + thinning around ears and neck) but my FUT scar zone is very thick and I think it won't thin.

    Ahhh okay. Yeah my diffuse thinning is still not extreme, but maybe by the time Replicel gets here it will be! haha.

    I thought that normally diffuse thinners only lose hair in the normal horseshoe pattern?

    There are two types of diffuse thinning:
    DPA - Diffuse Patterned Alopecia - Thinning everywhere EXCEPT the androgen-insensitive horseshoe region.
    DUPA - Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia - Thinning everywhere.

    I would personally assume that Replicel will give the best long-term results in those with DPA.

    See, DUPA here. :/ This is where the problem with Replicel lies. We should bring this question up to Replicel at some point.
