Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a far better solution. FUE procedures relocate “bald resistant” hair follicles from the back of the head to the balding areas on the top of the head. Once transplanted, these follicles that have never been prone to balding naturally grow hair for decades to come.
Using the same area of the scalp as the strip harvesting method, a certified NeoGraft® provider extracts hair follicles individually via a process known as “follicular unit extraction” (FUE). Once individual hairs have been extracted from the back of the patient’s scalp, they are individually implanted in the thinning or balding areas of the scalp via the NeoGraft® No-Touch Follicle Implantation Method. This process involves careful placement of the follicles into the scalp area, using a safe and simple delivery technique. Implantation continues until all of the harvested follicles have been transplanted.
After transplantation is complete, the newly transplanted follicles will rest and grow perfectly natural hair in the newly grafted areas. New hair can be colored, cut, and styled in any fashion. And the best part? There is no unsightly linear scar and the procedure is completely undetectable—except for the new hair, of course!
