Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
A special advancement in the field of hair transplant is the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) also known as Follicular Unit Extraction technique. Nu/hart’s FUE technique is a new and safe hair transplant technique done under local anesthesia that utilizes a machine with small punches to individually harvest the follicular grafts directly from the donor site and transplant them to the tiny slits in the recipient area.
The specialized punch used in FUE allows the surgeon to remove hair from the skin without causing damage.
This hair transplantation technique is a minimally invasive procedure and therefore the scalp heals faster. A patient can often show no visible signs ten days after surgery.
The FUE hair transplant process offers a procedure with no linear scar, no stitches, no bandages, and faster healing time.
Plus, if multiple sessions are needed, they can be done within weeks of each other. (The time between traditional strip method sessions is usually 6 months to 1 year.) The great thing about FUE is it has a faster healing time and less disruption to your busy schedule. NuHart’s FUE will give you the latest techniques in hair transplantation and the most natural head of hair. Each client needs a full consultation to determine if they are a perfect candidate for this type of hair transplant surgery.
