All hair types (N.B. curly, frizzy and afro hair require special expertise with FUE)
From 25 years old (recommended)
Densification of thinning hair, baldness restoration
Restoration of beard, mustache, eyebrows, eyelashes
Densify thinned areas, restore baldness (small, medium, large), in one or more sessions (each spaced from six months to a year at least, not to depopulate too quickly donor area, or to anticipate the evolution of baldness).
Create a beard, restore eyebrows or eyelashes ..
If necessary, use body hair instead of hair.
ADVANTAGES OF FUE:
Natural hair is transplanted, for all life
Minimally invasive surgery, without risk of complications (unlike the STRIP technique)
Patients apprehend FUE in a completely de-dramatized way (no wound that can mean pain or tension of the scalp, no stitches, no worry of linear scar)
Micro scars almost invisible (possibility of wearing short hair)
Simplified postoperative follow-up
FUE is ery flexible, easy to schedule multiple sessions
Cost: practically at the same levels as the STRIP technique, sometimes FUE is even cheaper.
DISADVANTAGES OF FUE:
Like all transplants, only possible under certain conditions (healthy hair or body hair available)
FUE longer and more tedious than the STRIP technique, so can be significantly more expensive.
May require multiple sessions for a large transplant
Prior shaving of the donor area: this disadvantage can easily be overcome (important in women in particular) by a partial shave, and by the coverage of the shaved area by the surrounding long hair.
With a mini-punch with a diameter greater than 1 mm, risk of visible scars.
