I don’t know how they do it now, but when I had old style plug transplants, they injected a saline solution under the scalp to lift it up, temporarily creating a saline filled space under the skin. This piloscopy method also first creates a vacant chamber under the skin, in which it does its job. If modern HT’s also do this, there would likely be less trauma using the piloscopy device, and certainly less scarring.
Did you even watch the video?
Did you even understand it?
The only time he raised up a flap, was on a dead body for a preliminary experiment.

sorry-seems barbaric to me. try do this from the beard area or body?
IMO would never allow a surgeon to perform and linear cuts on me for the sake of “better harvesting”. A well trained Surgeon has the hands and experience to mitigate transection. The best available technology will most likely not be in our lifetime-at the gene alteration level. In the mean time the best way to approach FUE IMO is to 1) be right candidate 2) if needed, expand the donor area by using beard and body hair as well as head hair. I don’t see the value of making a linear scar, to hopefully protect outer skin to get grafts. What happens if fat layer not taken out evenly- a “smooth” lumpy skin surface, what about great chance of infection by sticking the camera under the skin, etc.
Expanding the donor area in the least tramatic way should be the real focus.
Can you use this on beard area? obviously not.
whole thing looks barbaric and very invasive. Should be going away from raising any kind of flap-even 1 cm[/quote]
