Say Good-Bye to that Bald Spot.
At MBody we use a patented hair transplantation process that provides the most natural-looking hair transplant available: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. The FUE technique is the product of ten years of research and development, offering the next generation in hair transplantation for achieving a more aesthetically appealing hairline. More than 18,000 hair transplants have been done with this device in the last two years with excellent results.
A Better Method Of Harvesting Hair Follicles
Currently there are two methods used in performing transplants: The STRIP harvesting method and the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique method. Follicular Unit Extraction is the most recently developed hair transplant procedure that does not involve incisions like the STRIP method (which is still used by most doctors today). With the FUE technique, there is no cutting of the scalp and therefore no suturing or visible scarring. There is virtually no bleeding and almost immediate recovery. Patients are often back to work the next day.
With the STRIP method, a section of scalp is excised and the scalp is sewn together. Next, the hair follicles or grafts, including their bulbs, are separated from each other into units of one to four hairs by the technicians and inserted to tiny slits in the balding area. The follicles with a single hair are placed in the front to define the hairline.
Using the FUE method, the scalp is not excised. Small hair follicle units are removed directly from the donor area. In this hair restoration procedure, a 1.0 mm punch excision is used in the skin around the upper part of the follicular unit (hair follicles). The hair follicle is then extracted directly from the scalp and placed into tiny slits in the balding area.
Quicker Recovery And No Scars
The FUE technique is less invasive than the traditional STRIP method used by most surgeons today. Our patients save time and money because this new technology allows greater hair grafts than current traditional microsurgical techniques. Most importantly, there is no unsightly scar that is associated with the older STRIP excision technique. As a result, this office-based procedure allows for a shorter recovery time.
