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. However, I will only believe this after I read numerous patients posts about it on the hair loss forums next year.
On his site, Dr. Wesley also posted an excellent updated video related to his technique several months ago.

I am really excited about this. The fact that there will be no visible damage to the scalp and graft survival will take much of the anxiety out of hair transplant surgery.
Awesome, great blog.

Why Isn’t it in the market yet
@stephen he is perfecting the tool and making sure the technique is absolutely perfect before it is released on a wide scale.
Will this technologie be available in Europe ? Or only in US ?
What about the prices ? More than a simple fue i think no?
Sorry the mistake. Why hair surgeons and Spencer Kobren from Bald Truth Forum ignore this?
We need more and better treatments 100% sure in this decade.
