Dr Rassman,have you heard of Dr Carlos Wesley’s Pilofocus no scar procedure? I watched the video it looks pretty amazing. I am curious what you think.
This was presented at this past October’s ISHRS meeting. Essentially, the procedure gets the hair from under the scalp with an endoscope. Although he was short on details, I would imagine that the scalp is lifted up with a gas (carbon dioxide) and then the hair follicles are plucked from below. If it looks/sounds too good to be true, then it is. We have no pictures or scientific material to base the claims that this is a valid procedure and I would imagine it would be very difficult and time consuming. A lot of work for very few hairs.
There is no such thing as scar-less surgery in the real world. Since I started offering Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP), I have treated many Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) patients who thought (and were told by their doctor) that their FUE surgery is “scar-less”. Even FUE produces some tiny scarring.
