How Young is too Young for FUE in Toronto?
Depending on who you ask, you may get different answers to the question, “how young is too young for FUE in Toronto?” Males experience the hair thinning effects of androgenic alopecia as young as 20 years old in some cases. On average, more guys see the telltale hairline recession and crown thinning begin in their early 30s. To make matters more complicated, this common problem presents differently for everyone. Even if male pattern baldness runs in your family, your progression and severity of balding may be different from the other people you’re related to. Women experience genetic, pattern hair loss too, but the onset is typically much later, in their 50s and beyond. So, when young men start to see signs of balding, what should they do? Here are somethings that we tell our patients at the Nova Medical Toronto hair transplant clinic.
Toronto FUE- it’s not all about age
Men of all ages seek a hair restoration when they realize their previously thick locks and hairline are fading. This type of procedure is the new gold standard, fast replacing already popular strip harvest techniques. FUT is still used today in some cases where hair loss is severe, or high graft counts are needed, but FUE ( follicular unit excision) is preferred. This is due to its rapid recovery and minimal scarring. Rather than a long strip of scalp excised to be dissected for grafts, FUE in Toronto utilizes a rotary punch tool to remove just individual, tiny hair and scalp grafts. They often contain only a few follicles each. These are taken from the DHT resistant, dense growth areas at the back of your scalp, then re-implanted to the top.
