I consider myself to be very lucky because I'm in a position that allows me to travel to different clinics all over North America and Europe to meet and evaluate clinics and I get to work with seemingly endless gigabytes of video footage to show you why I think the doctors I work with are worth considering. Another benefit is that I get to watch surgeries from various world class surgeons. This is a one of my passions and when I arrived at the Texas hair restoration clinic of Dr. … read more
Where do I begin? Low Level Laser Therapy for hair loss, or "LLLT" for short, has been around for a long time. The first ever mention of low level laser therapy having a positive effect on hair growth was in 1967. A Hungarian scientist named Dr. Endre Mester was using the new laser technology to see if it would cause cancer in mice. I say "new" because lasers were only invented seven years earlier in 1960. During his experiment he shaved some mice so that the laser could better penetrate … read more
I'm proud to present the conclusion of the Hair Transplant Documentary series featuring Dr. Jerry Cooley and his FUE repair patient that was so kind to allow me to document his procedure from beginning to end. This was a fun shoot and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Haircenter and getting to watch Dr. Cooley and his team in action. Now that we're at the end of this portion of my videos series with Dr. Cooley I can talk more about what it was that I liked about Dr. Cooley … read more
Living with a hair transplant is something that most people don't give a lot of thought to. This is one of the biggest reasons, I believe, why some hair transplant patients are unhappy with their results. They may think that the result should be fuller, or that the density should be higher. Some even think that with one hair transplant all of their troubles will disappear, because obviously their problems stem from their hair issues.
Hair Transplant Class #004 is in session.
As I continue to think up new subjects … read more
FUE hair transplant surgery is getting more and more popular and in this video I shot at Shapiro Medical in Minneapolis, Minnesota you finally get to see how Shapiro Medical performs FUE hair transplant surgery. I originally shot this video in late February, 2016 and am only now uploading a final edit for your review, nearly ten months later. What is interesting to me is that when I was shooting this FUE hair transplant surgery documentary of Shapiro Medical they had been using the WAW FUE system developed by Dr. … read more
Should you have technician FUE surgery or FUE surgery performed mainly by a doctor? Techniciancentric hair transplant surgery has seen an explosion in the past five years due to the growth of FUE as a hair transplant procedure. What is "techniciancentric" FUE? It is FUE surgery performed mainly by technicians will little, and in many cases, NO involvement from a doctor. Technician FUE surgery has seen this growth because of what I have described many times before as a low threshold of entry into the field of hair transplant surgery … read more
Propecia Side Effects
I’ve had some opinions about how patients deal with their hair loss that haven’t always been popular. This is more of an issue since Propecia side effects have become more regularly discussed with time. The reasons why my opinion hasn’t always been popular is because I prefer to encourage people to use their brains and not simply rely on third party information and hearsay when it comes to their own long term hair restoration plans. The people that you read about or the people that you listen … read more
My latest video series documenting clinics has begun with my review of Arocha Hair Restoration in Houston, Tx. I already put together a short preview video on Youtube. I'm excited by some of the footage I shot and I'm looking forward to editing and sharing the results with my viewers and readers. One of the cool things I got to do was meet some of Dr. Arocha's patients, two of which just happened to come in on their own as the clinic did not call them to show up. It's … read more
I've seen hair transplant award after hair transplant award given to hair transplant doctors and hair transplant clinics over the years but to be honest, most of them are empty and offer little substance beyond a marketing opportunity. Don't get me wrong, they can be great but most of them simply aren't. One hair transplant award that stands out to me is the hair transplant award received by Dr. Lupanzula at the Brazilian Association of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABCRC) conference in August of 2016 Dr. Lupanzula traveled to Curitiba, Brazil, … read more
What sense does it make for the Hair Transplant Mentor to say "don't have a hair transplant"? It makes a lot of sense, actually. This is the first episode in a new series I'm starting designed to educate you about hair loss and hair transplant surgery in a way that's never been done before. In this episode I'm going to snap you back into the reality of what can really happen if you have a hair transplant surgery and it does not work out the way you hope. This is … read more
