Who is a good candidate for FUE?

  • Men or Women who want to wear their hair short, create fuller looking hair, or are looking to redefine their hairline
  • Those who do not want a linear scar
  • Those with limited donor supply or scalp elasticity

The tiny incisions left behind after the follicle units are extracted heal completely in just a few days. The tiny apertures contract as they heal, thus making the resulting round incision marks barely detectable at all.
