Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation is worlds ahead of the standard hair transplant procedure performed by the many of today’s surgeons.
To understand why the results of this hair transplant procedure look so natural, you must first understand how hair actually grows.
How hair grows naturally on the scalp.
If you look closely at naturally growing hair using magnification you will see that hair actually grows in groupings of one, two, three, and four hairs.
These naturally occurring hair groupings grow in irregular patterns on the scalp similar to how grass grows on a lawn. These groupings are technically referred to as “follicular units”.
By relocating these carefully prepared bald-resistant follicular units from the back and sides of the scalp, physicians doing “follicular unit hair transplantation” recreate a natural pattern of hair in the balding areas.
To do this properly is a very time consuming process. It requires a team of skilled and meticulous medical technicians working closely with the hair transplant physician.
A Follicular Unit Hair Transplantation looks natural, even on close examination.
Because the follicular unit hair transplant procedure replicates, hair for hair, the way hair grows naturally, it produces results that look natural – even under close inspection.
The follicular unit hair transplant also looks natural after only one surgical session. Additional procedures are only needed to increase the density of the hair transplant or to address additional areas of balding if the hair loss progressed.
This is in stark contrast to mini-micrograft procedures, where one session will generally not “stand on its own” and where additional surgical sessions are required in order to refine or soften the appearance of the previous hair transplants.
