What was your result and how long it took you?
I've received no call back and no email back. I've re-contacted one of the facilities that has not gotten back in touch with me. I've also contacted a different office.
@champpy , do you know if you would walk out of the operation with your head shaved bald, and a hundred sutures covering your dome making you look like a monster until they fade sometime later?
I wonder the same thing. People have this procedure done on the face so my bet is that the sutures are pretty discreet. Hopefully it doesn't require shaving all hair offb but if the threads are hardly noticeable then I'm less concerned about that.
I don’t think there will be any sutures, the thread is inserted at one point on the skin and is pushed in, sort of like it “tunnels” underneath the surface of the skin. You can check out some videos on YouTube of people getting it done on their face. I think that this procedure should be completely undetectable from what I’ve seen
Nope, no shaving and no sutures. Just needels inserted and pulled out. It may be red and swollen for a day. There is also the possibility of slight bleeding, so yeah if you did like 100 threads it might get a little messy.
Im going to try to get a pic or two of my head when they do it, hopefully. We will see.
You should be posting your before pics now. Something tells me there will be results, even if minimal
I don’t understand why there isn’t more excitement about this method.
We now have multiple studies indicating that scalp wounding does indeed cause hair growth.
Those studies however only applied a few wounding sessions and still produced results.
What is so brilliant about this method is that it is a long lasting wound.
I mean, the participants showed a 57% improvement after 12 weeks. That’s without propecia or minoxidil.
Who knows what the results could be after a year WITH propecia and minoxidil.
It seems to me that this is even better than a hair transplant.
I am extremely excited about this. I really can't wait to see what results champpy achieves.
If I had 57% more hair I would almost have too much hair
Sounds good man I just cut my hair last night so I'll try to take some shots later this evening and post them
If I got 15 to 20% improvement I'd be ecstatic.
Why are they pushed in then pulled out? I thought the threads were supposed to slowly dissolve away.
Here is a video of how it’s done. The needle carries the thread but is then removed while the thread remains.
Since people are already doing this to their faces I see no problem with doing it on the scalp. Also, google some ”thread lift before after” pictures. There really is a huge difference in peoples faces. So the procedure is definitely doing something.
The threads are inside the needles. Once inserted the needles come out but the thread remains under the skin
One thing to keep in mind is the thread type. The barbed threads are used to pull the skin. Those threads actually let the doctor pull and lift the skin for facelifts. You will see immediate results like that.
The smooth threads are the ones that will be used on me. The wont be pulled to lift the skin.
Ok i just cut my hair on Christmas night, so posting the before pics now. I was originally planning on doing the test area around the hairline on the right hand side of my head. It was always the stronger side but had recently been fading fast.
After really looking i can tell my left side is still much weaker and has more loss, so i think thats the side ill do. That way if the hair loss gets worse on the right ill be able to tell that the left side has hopefully maintained.
Here are the pics.
And please dont give me shit about being a "Fullhead".
Ive been maintaning with finasteride, dutasteride, minoxidil, keto, seti, PRP, castor oil, RU, S5, needling, capsasin, emu oil...name it and ive tried, with mixed results.
My goal is to keep what i have so i dont have to become a norwood 6 in the first place.
Anyways, fingers crossed
Well we know that threading works, can you try it with a good topical as well? Probably Minoxidil
Thankyou again @champpy for doing this and providing pictures.
Hi Champpy, I think you are just a Norwood 2 still with dense hair. Good luck to your treatment and hope one day we can meet at Dallas.
I agree he looks like he has a Norwood 2.
His hair line looks similar to mine 6 months before joining this forum, since then to now I've progressed to Norwood 3.
I'd be happy if something was released that could get me back to Champpy's current hairline.
