FUE is for the face too
With improved technology comes greater versatility. Today’s precision devices allow surgeons to remove grafts as small as a single hair. Those single follicle transplants can be placed in a thin or patchy beard, sideburns or even eyebrows. Imagine the freedom for men and women who no longer need to rely on makeup, tattoos or camouflage tricks to have the facial hair they’re missing. Once healed and growing on its own, facial hair transplants are permanent. Passing the test for natural-looking results even up close, Toronto FUE specialists can place single follicles in realistic and believable patterns on the face or in the hairline so that no one knows it didn’t grow there on its own.
FUE is for men and women
Sometimes women who wear their hair long, and see diffused hair loss all over their scalp, will still opt for the strip method. It allows a high number of grafts to be dissected from a comparatively small area. The scar is hidden in the hair. That isn’t the only choice for females, however. Increasingly, “no-shave” FUE and meticulous individual hair graft techniques can be used for women too.
Traction alopecia is a problem of balding and hairline recession that affects people who wear consistently tight hairstyles. People who use hair weaves, tight braids or dreadlocks often suffer permanent hair follicle damage at points of scalp tension. Spot treatment with FUE can restore growing hair to these areas.
If you’re seeking lasting improvement for your thinning, balding hair, FUE may be right for you. We welcome you to contact the Hair Institute and arrange your first consultation today.
