The development of science and technology today means that hair loss is no longer irreversible. Just as a barren field can be made to grow crops, hair transplanting is a reality that has changed the heads of those who deal with thinning hair patterns or hair loss.
Previously, the standard method of hair transplanting is to cut off a strip of scalp from the back of the head to obtain DHT-resistant hair follicles. Today, we use Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) to conduct hair transplanting.
DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is an androgen, a hormone that is thought to miniaturise hair follicles. It shortens the growing phase of hair and thus causes hair loss. Hair growing on the occiput area (back of the head) is generally more resistant to DHT compared to hair growing on the front or vertex (top of the head).
Therefore, in hair transplants, DHT-resistant hair follicles are harvested to generate hair growth in hair loss regions.
What is FUE?
While Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) replicates the results of the strip technique, it is a safer and highly advanced alternative that greatly reduces the risks of nerve and blood vessel injury associated with excisions of the scalp.
FUE hair transplant the best and most effective method of hair transplantation to date that redistributes and restores DHT-resistant hair from the occiput area to the front or vertex. FUE also works to cover-up scars caused by burns or surgical procedures such as a facelift and can even encourage hair growth for those born with sparse eyebrows, sideburns and eyelashes.
