Can they use body hair for transplanting with NeoGraft?

You know, there are some studies that have been done looking at transplanting hair from elsewhere on the body to the scalp. The thing is, you can do that, but here's the problem. Number 1, the body scars differently from the scalp. And then number 2, the hair you would harvest from elsewhere on the body doesn't have the same texture, doesn't have the same density. So the simple answer is it can be done, but we don't really do it because it's not effective.
