Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
FUE (follicular unit extraction) is a minimally invasive method in hair transplantation. Unlike strip harvesting, the traditional technique in which a strip of skin is removed from a donor site and cut into individual units, FUE uses an instrument to remove multiple groups of one to four hairs.
G-Factor Follicular Unit Extraction
G-Factor FUE is similar to Follicular Unit Extraction technique. The uses of growth factors which are extracted from the blood and injected into the transplanted area provide outstanding results to.
Full Density & Camouflage Density
- The normal density of a non‐bald hair is about 90 grafts /sq.cm
- The baldness becomes visible only if the density falls below 45 grafts( follicular units) / sq.cm
- What this also means is, to achieve a full density look, one needs only 45 follicullar units/ sq.cm
- Fuller Density: In fuller density method about 45 grafts are placed per sq.cm. This density is actually half the density of normal density, but still gives a fuller look, as discussed previously.
- Camouflage Density: In a camouflage density, 20‐25 grafts (follicullar units) are implanted per sq.cm.
- So, there won’t be a fuller look, though once the hair length goes above 8cms, the hair can cover/camouflage the existing bald area. This method is done for those who either don’t have a sufficient area or have budget constraints.
