FUE Hair Transplants
If you are one of the many persons suffering from excessive hair loss, hair thinning, and balding, then FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) could be the perfect option for you. In this method, each hair follicle is harvested individually into a balding area of the scalp.
Candidates for FUE Hair Transplants
The main advantage of the FUE hair transplantation technique is that it does not leave a horizontal scar on the back of your head. Therefore, if you prefer to cut your hair short, you are a suitable candidate for FUE hair transplants, as it gives you the freedom to shorten the hair on the backside of your head. If you are healthy and do not have any existing health conditions that could affect your treatment, you can restore balding or thinning areas with minimal stress to the body and excellent results.
Significant Benefits of FUE Hair Restoration
Some of the significant benefits of the FUE hair restoration technique are:
- They give faster, natural-looking results and leave no visible scar.
- Faster recovery and less pain.
- No major trauma is caused to the body as only local anesthesia is required.
How Is FUE Hair Transplantation Done?
FUE hair transplantation is an extensive procedure that takes several hours. The first step is to collect healthy hair follicles that are not genetically programmed for balding from the sides or back of your head. This procedure is done under local anesthesia and is painless. Each of these individual hair follicles is carefully harvested. They are then transplanted to a new location in your scalp where your hair is thinning or have bald spots.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
The recovery time associated with FUE hair transplants is often minimal, as the process involves no major trauma to your scalp. You may experience swelling initially, and the newly transplanted hairs may have a tiny scab around it. All of these will go away after some time. It is recommended that you take a few days off from your work so your scalp can heal faster. Restrain yourself from taking a shower and sleep with your head elevated as long as you need so that the transplanted hair will settle down in the new location and start growing naturally.
However, keep in mind that the transplanted hairs will soon start to fall off. You will have new hair to replace them once the transplanted hair follicles are fully integrated into your scalp. This may require a few months as the hair follicles heal and need time to shift back into their active phase.
Should I Combine PRP Therapy with FUE?
PRP, or “platelet-rich plasma,” can be combined with your FUE hair transplant procedure. PRP contains healing factors that can ensure better health of the freshly transplanted follicles. Read more to learn about PRP Therapy.
