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

FUE scar repair usually refers to using follicular unit extraction to fill in a scar that results from a FUSS (follicular unit strip surgery) but it can also mean filling scars from other types of problems. I touched on this in another blog post where I discuss burn scars. Today however, in my latest Hair Transplant Documentary Series and my visit to Medikemos Hair Restoration in Brussels, Dr. Lupanzula mentions how he regularly works on strip scars by filling them with hair using his manual, hand held manual FUE approach. … read more

The FUE workshop. This is the most powerful annual meeting that any hair restoration doctor would want to be a part of. There are a lot of changes happening as has been the case for the past few years, both good and bad and one of the highlights has been how FUE has overtaken FUSS as the dominant and preferred method of surgical hair restoration worldwide which in and of itself has an upside and a downside. I could talk for hours about this subject alone but the upside is … read more
What is PRP for hair loss? For years I've heard about and read about PRP for hair loss and its use in the field of hair restoration. I used to call it "kitchen sink science" and I think that that was an accurate description when you consider how it was being promoted by some clinics. There were many clinics talking about the benefits of PRP for hair loss without any real effort to study or experiment in a scientific manner. Like most things in this field too many were eager … read more
One thing about Texas is that it is not known for being a destination for good FUE hair transplant surgery. If you want BBQ, football or Dell computers, Texas has you covered but FUE has never been synonymous with Texas. I think that this is going to change because of the work coming out of Houston, Texas and Dr. Bernardino Arocha.
The patient above, as I'm told, had 2000 grafts extracted in a one day procedure. He was 30 years of age at the time of the procedure and … read more
You know the saying; "just when you think you've seen it all...". This is one of those moments. I often get questions from prospective hair transplant patients about the safety of traveling to Turkey with the current crisis going on in neighboring Syria and the potential for terror attacks. I understand the concern, I really do, which is one of the reasons why I made the hair transplant documentary to show people what it is like to travel to Turkey to get a hair transplant. In my opinion it is … read more
I get a lot of questions on a regular basis. It takes up at least an hour of my day almost every day to answer these questions. One of the more common questions I get asks about hair transplant recommendations and if the doctors I work with are the only doctors I think are doing good work. The answer is more complicated than a simple “yes” or a “no”.
I come from a hair transplant background where my opinion was rooted in the experience I had with one specific clinic. … read more
This was a good show. It's always great being on air with Spencer Kobren as we always seem to have great discussions. This one was no different except that it was a bit more serious in tone simply due to what I think was my frustration I was feeling at the time. I've been doing this for over ten years and I still get charges up by things I see and read online. There are a of claims all over the web and most of them are completely bogus. Spencer … read more
