What is FUE hair restoration?

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction—the type of hair restoration used for the procedure. This method of hair restoration is more precise, less painful, and more natural-looking than other methods. FUE hair restoration also does not leave behind a scar as is common with other procedures, such as the strip method. Because of the added precision, we are able to treat several problems with automated hair restoration including thinning hair, male pattern baldness, female pattern baldness, thin eyebrows, thinning sideburns, and other problems of hair loss for both men and women.

How is FUE better than FTE hair transplants?

FUE is more precise and natural-looking because it moves individual hair follicles from one area to another to restore a full head of hair through new hair growth from the transplanted follicles. This method of hair restoration is faster, less expensive, and doesn’t leave the linear scar that is common with FTE hair transplants.

Does automated hair restoration hurt?

Older methods of hair restoration have always been rumored to be fairly painful. However, automated hair restoration is designed to minimize any pain or discomfort, and you can even return to work the next day.

Is hair restoration right for me?

Automated hair restoration can achieve beautiful and natural-looking results for both men and women experiencing some sort of hair loss. We will meet individually with you during your consultation to develop a customized treatment plan that fits your goals and expectations. Hair restoration can be used for all sorts of hair restoration, including for the head, facial hair, and even body.

How should I prepare for hair restoration?

No major preparation is necessary for automated hair restoration. However, men often choose to get a buzz cut before their procedure so all their hair grows back at an even rate.

How long does the FUE procedure take?

The length of your procedure will depend on the number of hair follicles being transplanted. Your hair restoration procedure  will take roughly 3-8 hours to complete. You will able to relax or even watch television during your hair restoration procedure.

When will I see results from my FUE hair transplant?

Most patients see significant new hair growth about 6-8 months following their automated hair restoration (*).

Are there any risks with automated hair restoration?

When performed by reputable practice with adequate years of experience risks are rare and uncommon after hair restoration.
