What is FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Technique?
FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a graft (hair root) extraction method. FUE, which has been in use since 2015, is a method that allows people with hair loss problems to have healthy, lush and natural hair. In this method, grafts (hair follicles) are collected one by one from the back of the head where the hair is most dense, and then hair transplantation is performed using one of three different implantation techniques called SLIT, DHI and Sapphire. Contrary to what is known, the FUE technique is not a hair transplant, but a graft (hair root) extraction technique.
How is FUE Technique Applied?
- The density and amount of hair needed by the person is determined.
- The active substance required for numbness is directed to the skin with a pressurized spray and the substance is expected to penetrate the skin.
- Hair follicles are taken one by one from the donor area with a micromotor. The donor area is the nape area where the hair is the strongest. If more grafts are needed, graft extraction is performed (for men) in the chest area and under the chin.
The FUE technique has many advantages. It is a method that can be applied at all stages from the problem of complete hair loss to the problem of hair loss. The process of taking a piece of skin from the nape where the hair follicles are located, used in the FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) technique, is not required in the FUE technique. Since the suture is not performed, the possibility of scarring in the treated area is eliminated and you can return to your daily routine by recovering within 3 days. Hair transplantation application time is shorter (6-8 hours) compared to other procedures. The FUE technique is a comfortable and popular technique because of its magnificent results. With this technique, it is possible to achieve natural, lush and healthy hair.
