What is FUE hair transplant?
After the procedure
FUE METHOD (Follicular Unit Extraction)
This is the only technique we will do now. It’s a whole lot better. The procedure has much lesser risk. It heals so much faster as the wound although many but they are very small. It scabs within a week. There is no scar. The main weakness of FUE is that its very time consuming and demanding on the operator. It takes a lot of skill and technique to be able to extract the hair roots individually and in an efficient speed.
We are using an advanced hair transplantFUE technology developed by Medicamat, France and improved by clinics around the world ie. i-Land Tower clinic (Toyko, Japan), Motion Clinic (Seoul, Korea) and Cleveland Clinic (US). It reduces the time required for FUE with its precision automation methods for hair follicle extraction.
Time required is reduced by 1/2 to 1/3 which leads to better graft survival and better results. In a report by Cleveland Clinic (US) in 2006, “Hair transplant using Omnigraft aparatus is safe, effective and significantly reduces time for the procedure and personnel. A large majority of patients (90%) were very satisfied with their hair transplantation procedures”.
Our reference clinics - Yokobi Clinic (Dr Kenichiro - Yokohama, Japan), I-land Tower Clinic (Tokyo, Japan) and Motion Clinic (Seoul, Korea) - They are responsible for a large share of the hair transplant market in their country.
