My apologies for the delay in reply.
No, I will not call TH’s body hair exceptional. Average, maybe.
I have shared my views about BHT, based on our follow ups on threads before.
If you wish, I will request V to compile links to some of the recent threads.
Expanding needle concept is simple. We have tried to explain this before and have shown it to many of our patients.
I will have another go at it.
Think. The problem most doctors face when extracting from areas like forearms, thighs, legs etc., using a punch in their hand is the laxity of the skin.
The laxity leads to the skin (and the follicular unit) getting distorted when they twist their punch. The skin twists alongwith it.
That leads to the transections.
Now think this. When you poke with a needle, the skin doesnt turn/distort. But it gets cut.
Imagine cutting around the FU. That is the first/ one variant step of the expanding needle concept.
Instead of using the punch in hand, you just do it a different way.
I hope I have answered your query? Do not hesitate in case you have further doubts.
BTW, who is Stella?
