You could safely re-dermabrade the same spot perhaps once a year at best. And in the long term that is already pushing it a lot more than I would care to.

All for what? Maybe 0.25 hairs per square centimeter each time? 0.50 hairs? Even 1 hair per centimeter (which is too optimistic) is a slow-ass process. It's not going to cosmetically reverse MPB in this lifetime.


Great, explanation, cal... and I agree with you there 100%. Although I have to wonder if you're reading my entire posts, because I was saying basically the EXACT SAME THING. Repeated dermabrasion of the same spot of skin is NOT a viable plan, in fact it will eventually damage the tissue and REDUCE the viability of the follicles there, not increase it.

What's left, then? A single-session, one-off treatment? That's not likely to work either, because we know that one-time dermabrasion produces very little hair, and whatever hair it does produce is not ensured -- it varies wildly from person to person.

Therefore a one-time dermabrasion doesn't represent a reliable enough or consistent enough treatment for anyone to sell to investors or the general public, as the basis of a marketable MPB treatment. (This part goes without saying -- in fact, there is nothing to "sell" in the first place, because if one-time dermabrasions were widely known to grow cosmetically positive amounts of hair on bald scalps, millions of people would be getting this done this every year.)

That leaves only one other possibility -- joining a one-time dermabrasion treatment with some as-yet unknown chemical or drug which will dramatically augment the effect of the dermabrasion. But how long has Follica had to come up with that? They have been beating the same horse for over 10 years.

I can also see that if such a drug/chemical is ever found, the value will be in that drug or chemical itself... in other words, the value-added of the dermabrasion part will be minimal if not negligible.

So they would still be left at square one with the wounding idea. It risks damaging the scalp as a repeated treatment, is not effective or reliable enough as a stand-alone treatment, and the likelihood of it being a key part of some combination treatment, joined with a drug, is low because any really effective drug will probably realize its effectiveness based on its own merits, not because of the dermabrasion.
