Direct Fue Technique
The aim of this technique is the extraction of hair follicles from the donor area at the sides and the back of the head, from the occipital and temporal area, and the placement of those hair follicles to the area of alopecia (forehead, middle, and crown area of the scalp, called the recipient area). Ιn order to restore the permanent hair loss that has occurred in this area due to various reasons, most commonly due to androgenetic alopecia. Direct FUE is a minimally invasive technique that takes place without any graft processing, without making any reception holes prior to the grafts’ placement but instead by implanting them directly into the skin using a special implanter device to control the direction depth and angle of placement 100%
Design - Extraction
Personalized design based on medical protocols, face proportions, needs, and expectations of the patient. The hair follicles are handpicked and extracted one by one from the donor area, using a specifically designed disposable tool.
Hair follicles are kept at a specific temperature and in a special solution, the Hypothermosol®, which enhances their growth after the implantation. We do not split or cut the grafts. With minimum handling, we achieve the maximum growth rate.
Hair follicles are implanted directly into the suffering area using the Implanter, also with a diameter of 1mm or less, without having to create holes or slits. With the Implanter, doctors can control the depth, the direction, and the angle of placement.
