Hair transplants were initially introduced with the strip removal method but this became outdated due to its invasive natural and a more evolved method of performing hair transplant known as the Follicular Unit Extraction method or the FUE was introduced.
The difference between the two methods is that in the strip removal method an entire strip of skin and hair is removed from the donor region of the scalp and then broken down into individual hair grafts. In the FUE method, only the individual hair follicles are extracted using a very tiny punching instrument and then these hair follicles are implanted into the balding regions of the head.
The conventional FUE hair transplant has many advantages such as no linear scar, fast recovery and minimal bleeding but is time-consuming and labor-intensive therefore pricier than other methods. Hence, to speed up the rate of extraction the Automated FUE hair transplant in Dubai has been introduced at Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic. This makes the procedure easier for both the doctor and patient as it saves precious time.
This method uses the Neo Graft device, which is a revolutionary automated hair transplant machine that assists the doctor in performing hair restoration surgery using the FUE technique.
The FUE technique is less invasive than the traditional linear Strip technique as there is no cutting of the scalp, no suturing, no visible scarring and very little bleeding. The recovery time is very short that allows you to resume to your schedule and activities.
Some frequently asked questions about the Automated FUE method are the following:
What is automated FUE hair transplant?
The traditional FUE method involved manually removing hair follicles without an automated device- this was a major drawback as it was time-consuming, tiring and it was difficult to acquire the precise skills to perform this procedure which was also labor intensive. The automated FUE technique greatly increases and improves the total amount of grafts harvested in a single session. FUE is minimally invasive and carries the fewest complications.
What are the benefits of using an automated device?
The automated technique enables a lot more people to be candidates of an FUE hair transplant as it is less time consuming, therefore, does not raise the costs. The NeoGraft device uses controlled pneumatic pressure (suction) to extract the follicles smoothly so that there is minimal physical contact with the harvested hair follicle. There is no twisting or turning as when done with tweezers which can potentially damage the follicle. These conditions exempt most people for being good candidates of the treatment, but NeoGraft extracts follicles with a tool of excellent quality. The hair restoration procedure is faster than ever more but more follicles can be re-implanted more quickly, which keeps them more vital.
With the traditional FUE method that patients had to make sure that the surgeon was highly skilled which is rare but for the automated procedure the quality, control, and consistency is excellent.
