What is FUE hair transplant?

FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is one of the techniques that has been developed for a healthy, practical and successful treatment in hair transplantation. This method, in use since 2006, makes the hair transplantation procedure faster and to perform it is much easier. The advantages of FUE technique attracted the attention of the clinics and step by step they began to use it abandoning the old FUT technique.

In FUE hair transplant method, the strip of the scalp is not extracted, this technique consists of extracting in an individual way the hair follicles and the tissues that feed the follicular units with a special micromotor and then grafting them one by one on the parts of the head where there is no hair. The hair follicles are not removed by making linear cuts but circular. This makes the doctor's job easier and saves him/her time.

The follicles are extracted from the donor area that is located on the back of the head between the ears. As we have mentioned before, in FUE technique a special micromotor is used which has the cutting tips of 0.7 and 0.8 mm. The follicles that are extracted with the help of these special tips are called grafts. Each graft can contain 2 or 3 hairs.

FUE hair transplant is performed under local anesthesia. For this reason the pacient does not feel pain, maybe just a little while injecting local. During the treatment the patient does not lose consciousness and can see the whole process, read a book or newspaper.

FUE technique makes possible to transplant between 2000-7000 grafts - that is 4600-20000 hairs - in a session depending on the density of hair in the donor area and the condition of the hair loss area. Even though the transplantation of 7000 grafts in a session is theoretically possible, it is rather complicated to obtain this amount of grafts from the donor area. Using a manuel punch instead of a micromotor for graft extraction limits the number of grafts because it takes too much time.

The amount of grafts that are needed for the hair transplant depends on the extensity of hair loss area, hair thickness and even on its shape (straight, wavy, etc.) Pre-consultation and hair analysis make easier to calculate the graft number needed for hair transplant.

FUE  method allows for fast recovery and minimal scarring. For this reason FUE is the most popular hair transplant method in the world. A meticulous and attentive treatment by an expert medical team reduce the risk of scars. Using the micro motor with fine tips and at low speed allows to harvest the grafts at a more acute angle and by this way no remain visible scars in the donor area. It is important consider these details to avoid any damage to the donor area of the pacient. For this reason, a hair transplant treatment should be performed by an expert medical team in a clinic that has the appropriate technological base.



Hair Mesotherapy is a kind of hair treatment that consist in injecting a cocktail of various minerals, amino acids, enzymes and vitamins that repair hair tissues and promote growth of new tissues. This nutrient rich liquid is injected into the scalp where the tissues of skin are found. Mesotherapy helps to heal the damaged tissues and scalp, so that new hair can grow in a healthy, sustainable manner.


Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient's own blood, separating the platelets (their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation) from other blood cells and injecting the increased concentration of platelets into the scalp. PRP PRP injections promote natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft.
