Hair is among the most important physical feature for both men and women. Unfortunately, many of us are prone to certain forms of alopecia, known simply as hair loss or balding, and tend to lose much of our hair. Despite this, today, we have the choice to take control of the way we look and improve the quality of our lives. Renew Skin & Health Clinic provides its patients with a wide range of viable hair restoration options, from non-surgical hair transplant to FUE and FUT surgical hair transplant, depending on the particular needs and preferences of each individual.
If the patient wishes to enjoy the long-term advantages of natural hair regrowth, then the different surgical hair transplant techniques made available to him/her by the Renew Skin & Health Clinic cosmetic specialists are ideal. There are two modern surgical hair transplant methods which imply different risks and benefits: follicular unit transplantation surgery, or FUT surgery, and follicular unit extraction surgery, or FUE surgery. Both methods imply the placement of hair implants into miniscule “pockets” made by the surgeon in the balding area, but they differ when it comes to the means of follicular unit collection. Follicular units are naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 strands of hair; those units which are considered viable candidates for implantation are transplanted from the donor area to the recipient area of the patient’s scalp. In order for the follicular unit to become an effective hair implant, it must be genetically resistant to the effects of alopecia, thus allowing the patient to enjoy natural hair regrowth without ever experiencing hair loss. In the case of FUT hair surgery, the follicular units are collected using strip-harvesting, which means that thin strips of the donor area, often referred to as hair grafts, are surgically removed after which the medical staff trims the excess tissue around the base of the follicular unit in order to minimize the trauma caused to the scalp before finally implanting it into its designated area. In the case of follicular unit extraction surgery, each follicular unit is extracted individually using a special instrument after which they are transplanted to the donor area. This technique drastically limits scarring and any potential damage to the skin of the scalp, but it does result in a considerable increase in the transection rate relative to the FUT procedure.
