Get Your Confidence Back with Follicular Unit Extraction
When it comes to restoring hair, there is no single treatment that is best for all heads. Different methods address different issues. Follicular Unit Extraction or Excision (FUE) is a hair transplant procedure wherein the doctor/physician extracts the follicular hair units from the donor area of your head.
The physician uses a microneedle that punches a small incision around a hair follicle before extraction. Each unit contains up to four hairs and these hair groupings are subsequently transplanted into the balding areas of your head. There is no need for surgeons to make a long incision in this procedure. FUE is an ideal option for patients wo wish to restore their hair with minimum scarring and discomfort.
Advantages of Follicular Unit Extraction
Today many people who wish to have a head full of healthy hair are opting for Follicular Unit Extraction because of the following advantages:
1.Virtually no visible scars: Since FUE doesn’t involve any incisions or stitches, there will not be any visible scars. With FUE, physicians make small punches on the back of your skull. These punches only leave small round marks on your head, in contrast to the long linear mark with other procedures that is not easy to hide. FUE scars will not be visible even if you have short hair.
2.Low risk of complications: If you opt for Follicular Unit Extraction via a robotic procedure, there will be low risk of complications, less scarring, and less downtime due to limited manual labor.
3.Guarantees a natural-looking hairline: Follicular Unit Extraction leaves a natural-looking hairline and denser head of hair. Developments in transplant technology guarantee that your transplanted hair looks totally natural without producing ‘plugs’.
4.Minimum pain after the procedure: You will not experience any pain after the procedure. Unlike other procedures such as Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) where a small portion of your skin is taken off from the back of your head, you will not need medication for relieving pain post the procedure with FUE.
5.Less downtime: The punches made during this procedure will be healed within a few days, unlike linear scars that stay on for years. Also, since no scalpels or stitches are used, the donor wounds heal within a few days.
