FUE is a hair transplant surgery that involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor part of the body, usually the sides and back of the head. The individual follicles are then implanted in the areas that are affected.
1) Donor Area Identification: During the assessment/consultation prior to the surgery the donor region is assessed for suitability and shaved to size 1/2 to prepare for follicular harvesting.
2) Harvesting FUE grafts: Individual follicular grafts are harvested from the donor area (each follicle containing between 2 to 4 grafts) by extracting the hair.
3) Stored in Nutrient Solution: The harvested follicular grafts are placed in a nutrient solution, which ensure they are kept safely and nutrient until they are implanted.
4) Implanting FUE grafts: The follicles are then carefully implanted into the affected areas to ensure high density of your hair.
This method greatly improves the survival rate of the newly transplanted grafts. FUE has been proven exceptionally effective method for hair transplant.
PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) therapy is a treatment for hair loss that involves using a person’s own blood plasma, which is rich in growth factors, to promote hair growth. The process involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting the concentrated plasma into the scalp.
PRP therapy is believed to stimulate the hair follicles and promote hair growth by delivering growth factors and nutrients directly to the hair follicles. Studies have shown positive results for PRP therapy in promoting hair growth.
PRP treatment for hair loss is non-surgical and minimally invasive, with few reported side effects. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatment for hair loss is considered a safe procedure, but like any medical procedure, it does carry some risks and potential side effects, including:
- Infection: As with any injection-based procedure, there is a small risk of infection.
- Pain or discomfort: Some patients may experience pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site.
- Allergic reactions: Rarely, patients may experience an allergic reaction to the components of the PRP solution.
- Scarring: Scarring is a rare but possible side effect of PRP treatment for hair loss.
- Ineffective results: Not all patients will see positive results from PRP treatment for hair loss, and some may find that their hair loss continues despite treatment.
It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of PRP treatment for hair loss with a qualified medical professional before undergoing the procedure.
