The days of rows of unnatural looking hair are over. With advanced technology and deeper understanding of hair physiology, hair transplant now appears natural. Whether you are experiencing an important and/or premature hair loss, thinning hair or have an unpleasant scar, Timeless can help you revert it with a fuller, thicker and natural hair.
Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)
The FUE technique is applicable to both men and women. Thanks to the anesthesia application process used by Timeless, our patients experience no pain whatsoever during and after the transplant, there are no stitches to take care of and remove after the procedure, in just three days you will be back to your day-to-day activities, and in just ten days you will be able to do any strenuous exercise or activity of yours.
At Timeless, you can have a hair transplant with proven successful and natural results, through a cost-effective solution.
FUE is one of the latest and successful techniques used in the excision of follicles responsible for hair growth. FUE does not use a scalpel to perform the hair transplant procedure, instead an excising tool with less than one millimeter in diameter is used. As such, there are no linear scars at the place where the donor strip is excised. The FUE technique leaves virtually no detectable scars in the tiny excision sites.
DONOR AREA FOR FOLLICLE EXCISION
The donor area is as important as the recipient area. An expert doctor should be able to excise the required hair follicles in such a way that the donor area is left with no detectable procedure traits. The prefer and critical donor area is the back of the head, follow by the sides, as in these areas, the hair is not affected by the DHT (dihydrotestosterone) hormone which causes hair follicles to miniaturize, and thus contributing to male pattern hair loss.
The hair that is permanently growing in the back and sides of the head is then strategically transplanted placing the follicular grafts one by one to maximize the naturalness, density and coverage of the baldness and thinning areas.
FUE ADVANTAGES VS OTHER PROCEDURES
FUE (FOLLICULAR UNIT EXCISION) VS FUT (FOLLICULAR UNIT TRANSPLANT)
FUE technique is extremely less invasive than the FUT or “strip” procedure. The wound created by the excision of the FUT technique leaves a lineal scar on the back of the head often visible with a short haircut. In addition, the FUT or strip removal method involves a longer recovery period. The stitches used to close the excision will need to be in place for one to two weeks, and it is recommended that patients avoid strenuous activity for a few weeks following their removal.
Through the FUE procedure, the doctor is able to individually excise follicular grafts (1, 2 or 3 hairs within each follicle) from the donor area without a scalpel, instead using a small cylindrical punch requiring no surgical closure. The tiny wounds caused by the follicular excision will evolve into undetectable rounded scars, instead of the lineal scar left by the FUT method.
FUE (FOLLICULAR UNIT EXCISION) VS ROBOTIC HAIR TRANSPLANT
Both use the same FUE technique to harvest grafts, however one does it with a robotic arm. The goal for both methods is to collect good quality grafts to obtain good growth of these follicles, and in consequence better results.
A successful hair transplant demands the artistic factor that can only be achieved through the right human hands and with surprising results, something that a robotic system cannot deliver. Also, the fact that the robotic arm has a high market acquisition cost, causes the value of the hair transplant to be usually higher.
A robotic arm avoids the fatigue factor that the surgeon can develop during long hours of surgery, however with the traditional FUE technique, a surgeon with excellent skills can and will obtain good quality grafts as with the robotic system and can be even faster doing so. The conventional FUE technique uses a smaller punch (0.8 - 0.9 mm) than the one regularly used by the robotic arm (1.0 mm), reducing the risk of leaving visible scars in the donor area.
