ADVANCE F.U.E.® Technique
The “FUE” (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique is another variant of the Hair Implant. It differs from the FUSS technique in the way of extracting the follicular unit, since it is extracted one by one directly from the scalp. This technique was used for specific alopecia such as scarring, eyebrows, beard, or to give more density in unpopulated areas, that is, where few follicular units are needed. Currently, thanks to technological advances, it is carried out in larger procedures.
Step by Step ADVANCE F.U.E.® Technique
Preparation of the donor area:
In this technique, it is necessary to shave the area. Under local anesthesia and using a micropunch, follicular units are removed one by one directly from the scalp. The Micropunch is a cylindrical tool whose diameter varies depending on the hairs that the follicular unit to be extracted has, whether they are 1, 2, 3 or 4 hair. It also adapts to the size of the follicular units, which can range between 0.75 and 0.9 mm in diameter. And it will vary depending on the orientation and depth of the epidermis.
All Medical Hair instruments are imported from the USA and Europe.
Once the follicular units have been removed, they are placed in a suitable medium of cold and humidity to preserve all the properties of each follicular unit, so that they are in perfect condition until they are implanted.
When we remove the follicular unit from the donor area, there is a small hole in it, which, in a few days will heal without leaving a linear scar. For this technique, it is not necessary to suture so the recovery period is painless and fast.
Finally, we begin with the placement process in the patient's receiving area. The surgeon establishes the design and makes the micro-incisions where later the follicular units will be placed one by one.
The post-procedure care of the FUE technique is similar to that of any hair implant.
The next day, the patient can resume his daily tasks. It is essential to keep the area clean, following the instructions provided by the medical team. You cannot exercise or sunbathe or take UVA directly on the transplanted grafts for as long as the specialist indicates.
