It is a technique that consists of removing the grafts one by one from the crown. The hair follicles are extracted from the back of the skull in the occipital part. It is in this area that the hair is richer and fuller. They have a longer life expectancy than those on the rest of the skull because they are insensitive to DHT (dihydrotestosterone), the hormone responsible for baldness. Harvesting is either manual or semi-automated using a machine. Each graft is then implanted in the bald area.
The absence of scars along with the preservation of the hair capital of the donor area is the advantage of FUE.
FUE is particularly recommended for men because it requires in most cases shaving the entire skull. It does not leave a visible scar or trace on the patient.
The duration of the procedure depends on the number of grafts to be taken and the area to be covered. It, therefore, differs from one patient to another, as does the number of grafts to be implanted, which depends on the donor area.
L’intervention requiert du temps car il s’agit d’un travail minutieux de précision que nos médecins dermatologues, spécialisés et reconnus en greffe capillaire réaliseront afin de permettre au patient d’avoir le résultat le plus naturel possible.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and is painless.
Our team offers two types of anaesthesia:
The dermojet which is local anaesthesia injected into the scalp using a device in the form of a pressure pen. The intradermal injection of 1/10 ml is carried out under a pressure of 100 kg/cm2; the very fine jet punctures the skin instantly producing a characteristic large papule.
Sedation allows the patient, with the help of a sedative that is administered to him, not to suffer and not to be aware of what is happening for some time.
FUE is the most commonly used method in the world.
