Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)

About the Treatment

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a type of hair treatment that is conducted by taking individual hair follicles from your skin (usually the back of your scalp) and moving them to a spot where you suffer from hair loss. This surgical procedure uses micropunches, leaving behind almost no trace of extracted follicles. This procedure has no downtime and no scarring.
Because the hairs are removed individually, an FUE hair transplant procedure will not leave a linear scar on the back of the scalp as with FUT surgery. Instead, the scars are the size of a pin prick scattered throughout the back of the scalp, that are diff icult to detect, even when looking from a close distance. It even allows you to wear your hear very short since the micro – scars are undetectable

During an FUE Hair Transplant procedure, the follicular units are harvested (removed) from the back of your scalp by your surgeon, using a surgical tool the diameter of .7 to 1 mm. The cylindrical surgical instrument is selected based on the size of the hair follicles. Each follicle is excised in a coordinated manner, leaving intact hairs around each excision so it will not create areas of sparsity in your donor area.

Once the hairs have been harvested, our highly trained medical technicians examine each follicle and separate them according to how many hairs each has. Individual follicles may have one to three hairs, and we use these accordingly to create the best hairlines possible.

FUE is a harvesting, or removal technique. Your results will depend on how the hairs are placed or implanted more than how the hairs are taken out. The surgeon’s skill level and artistic ability will factor into how good and natural the results of the hair transplant will look. The doctor will individually plan and create sites in which each hair follicle will be placed in the correct direction and angle, and the hair grafts are distributed properly. This is very meticulous work and why it is so important to choose an experienced doctor with both technical and artistic abilities.
The entire treatment process will take place under local anesthetic, meaning you will not be put to sleep. Anesthetic will be re- applied throughout the procedure to keep you pain free the entire time. An oral medication will be offered to help you relax during the procedure. There should be absolutely no pain after the initial local anesthetic injections. We offer the use of ProNox nitrous oxide system to help with the initial anesthetic injections for even more comfort.

Why FUE?

FUE is the most technologically advanced hair transplantation method available. Men and women who wear their hair short in the back of the scalp now have an option for hair transplant. And with no major downtime you can get back to your life much quicker than with strip harvesting transplant. At RejuvLA we don’t just focus on men for FUE because we understand how prevalent female hair loss has become.
Many females may not realize that they are candidates for hair transplantation. From smaller procedures to fill in thin areas to larger scalp coverage, FUE can really make a difference in your appearance with almost no downtime and no scars. RejuvLA has a special interest in women’s hair loss and has become a preferred clinic in Los Angeles for female hair loss treatments.
We use FUE as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that may include high concentration PRP and topical medications for best overall results. We strive for a long-term relationship with our patients which we feel is best for overall satisfaction. We are skeptical of clinics that only transplant hair without proper consideration long term treatment modalities. These types of treatments usually end up with worse overall outcomes, especially for male patients.
