June 21, 2018
Hair Regeneration through transected follicles is becoming a popular technique, for it allows surgeons to increase the total number of hairs on an individual’s head. This is going to be a huge breakthrough in surgical hair restoration, as till now, hair transplant was able to only redistribute existing hair on the head to make it appear fuller and thicker, while the total hair count on the head used to remain same. Now regeneration of transected hairs allows growing two hairs from one follicle. Wondering how? Continue reading to know more about techniques to regenerate transected hairs.
It is a more advanced technique that requires special skills and a vast experience because an inexperienced surgeon or nurse practitioner can damage the follicle while transecting it. In this procedure, the original follicle is transected carefully into two halves. One half remains in the original place while the other half is removed and transplanted in the bald area or the areas with significant hair thinning, with a hope that each half grows into a new hair.
Stem Cell FUE is the latest technique that uses transected hair follicles to regenerate hairs. The technique is best known for removing only a small part of donor follicle using a specially designed automated punch tool. The part of hair follicle thus removed is called stem cell, which has the ability to grow into new hair. In the meanwhile, the remaining part of the follicle continues to grow into new hair. This way doctors grow two hairs from a single follicle.
Stem Cell FUE is an advanced form of traditional Follicular Unit Extraction method. In case of traditional FUE, a simple punch tool is used for graft extraction, whereas, in case of stem cell FUE, a specially designed automated punch tool is used for removing only a small part of the donor graft. The harvested portion is planted in the recipient where it develops its own blood supply and starts growing like other hairs on the scalp.
Since the hair follicle is not extracted from the root, it does not cause any scar in the donor area. This is why hair transplantation through transected follicles is also often termed as no-scar technique. So, if you are seeking a scar-free hair transplant technique, opt for Stem Cell FUE and grow hair in the bald areas without compromising on the hair density in the donor area. Since an automated punch tool is used for graft extraction, the procedure is also way faster than the older hair transplantation techniques. Also, recovery from the surgery is quicker and safer.
