Are you considering a hair treatment procedure? This video explains what fue hair transplants are.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a type of hair transplant done by taking individual hair follicles from your skin and moving them to another part of your body where hair’s thinner or absent. FUE has become more popular than the follicular unit transplantation (FUT) procedure, which led to the “hair plugs” look. The FUE treatment uses small punctures to transplant follicles from all over your head to areas where your hair is thinning or bald.
Both types of hair transplantation procedures are considered permanent. The advantage of FUE is that it doesn’t produce a large scar. Instead, it creates hundreds of tiny scars that are much less visible after healing, especially for people with light hair that might not be able to completely cover a traditional “strip” hair transplant scar.
the procedure itself should not cause any pain. Follicular Unit Extraction can be labor-intensive as each donor follicle has to be extracted with an instrument. Additionally, the results following the surgery can look tender and painful.
