FUE Hair Transplant: How Does It Work, and Is It For Me?November 19, 2018
Hair loss can affect men and women of all ages. In most cases, hair loss is genetic. However, certain medical conditions, lifestyle habits, and stress can speed up the process. While there are a number of hair restoration options out there, they’re not the most accessible procedures. Many require the use of prescription medication, lengthy surgical procedures, and weeks of downtime. If you’re looking for a hair loss solution that’s minimally-invasive, consider SmartGraft® FUE.
What Is SmartGraft® FUE?
SmartGraft® FUE is a revolutionary procedure that makes the entire restoration process more efficient and streamlined. Your very own hair is used to fill in thinning parts of your head or noticeable bald spots. Follicles are taken from healthy parts of your scalp. Typically, this is from the back of your head. This process is called follicular unit extraction, or FUE.
With SmartGraft® FUE, you don’t have to worry about visible scars. The advanced equipment removes individual follicles. The exact number of follicles that will be removed depends entirely on your needs.
What Makes SmartGraft® FUE Different?
In addition to the individual follicle extraction, the procedure is designed with efficiency in mind. Follicles are separated from the surrounding tissue and removed with gentle suction. They’re then safely transported to a storage system. The storage area keeps the follicles in an environment that’s ideal for proper preservation. The SmartGraft® FUE takes care of the entire extraction process. There’s no additional human interaction with the follicles until the implantation phase. This helps to make the process quicker and more efficient.
Most restoration sessions can be completed in a single day. Everything is done during the first session. New hairs should start to grow within three months of treatment, and in six months you should notice significant improvement. 12-14 months after treatment and full growth will occur.
Is It Right For Me?
One of the greatest things about SmartGraft® FUE is that it’s accessible to a wide range of people. Both men and women of all ages and races can benefit from this procedure. Because it’s quick and requires very little downtime, it’s something that you can get done around your busy schedule.
