Hi Everyone, I had forgotten i had registered here a bit ago, as life sometimes gets in the way. I do want to say that all the pros here definitely seem to know their stuff...and saved me $500 I would have spent on Tria.
So the real question I have about these growth charts is...how do the various removal processes affect them? Will a follicle switch modes when a hair is removed or does it run the course; would that depend on the removal type; or is the "time frame" something decided by genetics? Or is it possible like other genetic traits, (the susceptibility to ultra violet for example) some people have hair growth time that is more influenced by environment over physiological averages or vice versa? It seems that these charts may have been compiled with observable growth using the markers, etc...but without regard to the underlying genetics, but I amjust asking. I know absolutely nothing about the studies or the individuals performing them. Just trying to wrap my head around what they really mean. It would seem that you could base treatment on these because you are hoping to get the best results and because it is not feasible to determine clinically whether or not individuals would benefit from more frequent or less frequent, is that correct?
I am just wondering if in some individuals it would make sense to treat them at more customized intervals, for instance the person who mentioned the 160 hairs each week.
I am NOT a practitioner, or trying to rile anything.....just a person interested in what the experienced people think. And not looking to irritate anyone either!
