Dr. Lindsey 12 months out from 2700 repair case McLean VA

This professional had a poor experience at a large chain hair clinic. We did a 2700 graft repair case and he stopped by last week to discuss a second, or third depending on how you count it, case to address his remaining bald crown. He had a nice result particularly given his really light skin and very dark, fairly fine, hairs. Shown are preop, 1 week and 1 month (which he emailed in), and 10 and 12 months. He works in a field where an outfit offering hair coverage is often part of his job. Interestingly as his hair has grown in he said nobody noticed his case but now comment how they used to think he was bald..but it “must have just been bad haircuts”. Some of you may comment that that frontal widow’s peak is a little low and too sparse…I agree. It doesn’t match his face. That is why we agreed on the hairline he has and hopefully he’ll get electrolysis on those 15 or so hairs.

Nice coverage for the amount of grafts used.


With is light skin, would there be an issue of removing the frontal grafts through FUE on his next session? Electrolysis doesn't usually seem like a great solution because it is not a "one and done" kind of procedure.

Good question. So it might be possible to FUE those 17+/- hairs out as you suggest. I brought up electrolysis as there is an older nurse in our area who is really good at getting hairs like this on one setting. I think she's unique, certainly in our area. Laser would also work given how dark his roots are compared to the light skin, but that's probably a 4 or 5 treatment (even though its probably only 2 or 3 laser pulses) session. The argument against FUE in this guy, unless its combined with downtime from a future case or a vacation, is that he'll have a little noticability from the procedure. Whereas with electrolysis he won't.


He tells me he even got by without his parents knowing he had a repair HT...and is anxious to not let on to anyone via a future, albeit small, tweak there at the hairline.


As to the RN electrolysis lady...I met her maybe 12 years ago and would go to her center and Botox her clients....with the ultimate goal of "stealing" them back to my place for laser hair removal, which I was offering back then. Unbelievably she was doing such good work with electrolysis I never stood a chance of taking her customers and have ultimately referred her a bunch of folks.
