Follicular Unit Excision
We’re headed into 2019,and the exciting world of hair regeneration and transplant technology is continually moving forward with us.
The rise of smart FUE transplant devices, robotics, and biotechnologyderived from our own super-charged platelets are all leading the way to a promising future for hair transplants in Miami.
Cloning For Hair?
This option hasn’t arrived yet on our sunny shores,but when it does, we’ll be sure to let you know! Hair cloning as it’s been nicknamed is actually more along the lines of regenerative cell therapy. Donor follicles extracted with FUE then have key cellular components taken out and replicated in a lab to about 1,500 cells. Those cells will then be injected back into the patient’s scalp. This “hair cloning” tech would be an extension of the already impressive PRP therapy for hair which we offer at Nova Medical Hair Transplant Clinic. This product is 100% natural and derived from your own blood, so it is not only surgery-free but is a safe, allergen and drug-free way to stimulate hair growth. Our specialists also find PRP useful alongside ahair transplant to assist with rapid healing, decrease inflammation time and boost new follicle growth faster after the procedure.
Terminology Changes For Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)
As you may have already heard, the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, (ISHRS) has decided to change the name of Miami’s top hair transplant procedure, just slightly. For clarification, the letters FUE which previously stood for follicular unit extraction will now represent follicular unit excision. The difference between extraction and excision is meant to clarify the surgical nature of this procedure and leave no room for confusion. Though FUE is minimally invasive compared with previous transplant methods, the circular unit punches take hair grafts along with a small amount of scalp tissue. These follicles plus scalp tissue are so small that they leave only micro-incision holes which close within a few days and leave minimal scarring. Best results still depend on seeking a qualified, experienced hair transplant surgeon and following proper safety and care protocols while healing.
