WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS
The average person tends to shed about 50-100 hairs every day; this hair loss is minimal and barely noticeable. However, excessive hair loss could lead to an unsightly appearance with thinning hair, bald spots, or receding hairlines.
Balding can affect both men and women, with hair losing its volume as a result. Large clumps of hair may even fall out when it is being washed or combed if the hair has been significantly weakened.
WHAT IS FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION (FUE)
This is a fairly new revolutionary treatment which helps to solve your hair loss problems! Although it is a minor surgical method, it is also minimally invasive and uses a special tool that does not cause any linear scarring. No stitches will be required during the procedure.
It uses hair from your own body, chosen from a “donor area” to be transplanted to the area suffering from bald spots or hair thinning. The strands are plucked out one by one, before being reinserted into the treatment area to slowly cover up the spots lacking hair.
Although the process can be lengthy, most individuals can complete follicular unit extraction in a single session. However, this depends on your specific hair condition and also if you are suitable for the procedure. Your doctor will consult and discuss options and outcomes with you before going ahead with the process.
RESULTS AND RECOVERY
Hair in the donor area will grow back in a few days, after which the procedure will seem almost unnoticeable. Most individuals are able to return to their normal lives and routines without any issue, with many even going back to work the next day.
The results are permanent and looks completely natural because it uses your own hair. Although some of the transplanted hair follicles will not last, over 90% will be retained. This is more than enough to ensure that your hairline or bald spots will be completely covered, restoring your self-confidence and image to the way it was before!
