Dr. Pietro Gentile's stem cell hair transplant - Photos and study

So, some Dr. named Pietro Gentile essentially tried to do a RepliCel/Shiseido thing.

Taking a punch biopsy, harvesting some cells and then injecting them into thinning areas. They claim it's a success.

You'll find better pictures within the article, but here are two samples of a female and a male patient.

Personally, I think this is a fraud.

The trichograms are not terribly impressive and appear to be taken a bit further below their original position if you look at the tattoo.

Lastly, the man's hair is clearly combed forward in the after picture, and the woman's hair is so wild that her thinning could easily be covered by combing; which it appears to have been.

Why did you post it when it's obviously a scam?
