Hair Transplant Techniques
FUE in New Jersey have revolutionized what’s possible for hair transplant results
So, you’ve begun to notice the tell-tale signs of male pattern baldness, but you haven’t considered a hair transplant surgery because they look fake and leave scars, right? Not anymore! You may come across this term while researching and wonder what FUE means. FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction, and through the technology has been around for many years, it’s recently been perfected and advanced to the point that it makes virtually scar less, effective hair transplantation possible for people of all ages
Natural Growth Formation
The natural growth formation of hair follicles in your scalp are called follicular units and may include between 1-3 hairs on average. In the past, these small clusters of hair were typically dissected out of a long strip of surgically excised scalp. After the surgeon carefully divided thousands of grafts from one piece of scalp, the follicular units would be grafted into the recipient sites- typically at the top and front of the head. FUE allows very small clusters, or even individual hair follicles, to be “punched” out of the scalp using a tiny hand punch tool. The hair follicle is taken with root and a small amount of surrounding tissue intact, but leaves only a micro-incision, 1mm or less in diameter.
No longer is a strip of scalp necessary with its long incision, stitches and scar. The small holes close naturally within days and blend into the surrounding scalp.
The strip method is called FUT and can still be the best option for some clients depending on their goals and the amount of hair they present with. In New Jersey, FUE has become the more popular choice for those who wish to fill in receding hairlines, small bald patches, hair loss from traction alopecia, facial hair patches and covering FUT scars. With so many applications, this versatile approach has made natural looking, virtually scar-free hair transplant more attainable than ever for today’s clients.
