Piloscopy Update

In August of 2014, I wrote a blog post about Dr. Carlos Wesley and his ingenious PiloFocus scarless hair transplantation technique.   Note that this technique is often also called Piloscopy.

For me, the scarless aspect of Piloscopy is less important than the fact that it could lead to better graft survival rates due to chubbier grafts that include greater amounts of stem cells and protective tissue.  Two weeks ago, Dr. Wesley was on Spencer Kobren’s “The Bald Truth” show and the below interview is worth watching. It seemly like PiloFocus will be available to the general public by the end of 2015, and there is also some possibility of donor regeneration (although I will only believe that after numerous patients post about it on the forums next year).

Dr. Wesley also posted an excellent updated video related to his technique on his site several months ago and I have embedded it below:
