Any clue on the cost compared to regular FUE?

I was supposed to schedule a skype session earlier this year with Dr. Wesley to discuss the procedure, but the dates never fully lined up. I believe he was able to discuss the process with Bill, but, either way, I'm still very, very eager to find out more.

He's a very talented and scientifically minded doctor, and I know he'll share the information once he's gone through all the proper channels and feels the evidence is compelling and significant.

Any chance the Doc will still do that skype session to give us an update?

No such thing as "scar less", a paper cut causes a scar.

But if it's microscopic for all practical cosmetic purposes it is "scar-less".

Just like a "touchless" car wash is not entirely "touchless" in that water and soap does indeed "touch" the vehicle.

As long as the scars are invisible to the naked eye and patiens are able to shave to the skin with no white dots, then it's scarless from patients prospective.
Who cares if there are some scars that are visible under a microscope. Ppl on the streets don't walk with microscopes just checking out your donor area.

As for dr. Wesley procedure, on his website he said it would be available as early as 2012 but then he changed It to 2013, He has an option on his site where you can request info about this scarless procedure, i did that but i never heared back from him, not even an email as a reply to my official request through the site.

So currently i think the only scarless procedure is dr. Gho's HST. I had my procedure couple of weeks ago and today i shaved my donor grade 1/2 with no visible scars, i will shave down to the skin if/when the transplanted hair fall off and will be able to tell if there are any tiny little scars or dots, but so far things are looking good since i will always sport the buzzed look and having no scars was my top priority.

You ended up having HST with Dr. Gho?

If so, you should definitely make a thread and share the experience with some images!
