What is the FUE hair transplant technique
FUE is a blind hair transplant technique. This means it´s impossible to see under the skin which direction the hair follicle is growing. When being removed. If the hair follicle is split (transected) it will damage the quality of the hairs. As a result, reduce the survival and what grows later. With the hair follicles damaged this will compromise the quality of the remaining hairs. Potentially cause miniaturisation and thinning of the remaining hairs. Creating a weak donor area looking patchy and thin.
There are a few steps to ensure the minimum change occurs to the follicular units along the process of the hair transplant procedure. Pure FUE minimises any risk of damaging the hair follicles due to the protocols on graft care.
Graft care continues with the care and examination under magnification and then with the placement of the hairs into the hairline and behind. Carefully matching the natural angles and direction and taking care not to damage any of the surrounding hair.
