Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is one of the most common therapies for alopecia, during which individual hair follicles are removed. This modern treatment does not require a lance or stitches and as a result you avoid scarring and swelling. Most importantly… it is painless!
Why choose FUE treatment?Hair transplantation with precision:
It is a method characterized by great accuracy as doctors remove the grafts separately. Small groups of hair roots, are transplanted by Hair Clinic Athens specialists to the affected areas.Harvesting without a scalpel:
An important advantage compared to the FUT method is that, usually, no cuts are usually required which have the potential to leave minor scarring. Thanks to FUE technology, individual pockets are manually filled with microscopic needles. Therefore, only very small traces are created on the scalp, which are barely (or at all) visible to the naked eye and disappear soon after.Painless hair follicles collection:
Painless hair follicles collection Immediate recovery of patients Unlike other techniques, the FUE technique does not require stitches which results in the immediate return of the cured patients to their daily activities.
How is FUE treated?
- Hair Line Design:Once the needs and aesthetic preferences of the individual patient are assessed and analyzed, the corresponding hair line is drawn on the head.
- Collection of individual hair follicles: After the hair line design, we carefully continue with extraction and collection of hair follicles from the donor area, usually the back of the head, without creating a permanent scar.
- Hair follicles placement: Finally, the implants are implanted with precision of a millimeter in the previously labeled areas until the entire surface is filled as densely as possible.
