3 Advantages of Toronto FUE Hair Loss Treatment

Follicular Unit Extraction

FUE stands for follicular unit extraction. During this restorative procedure, healthy hair is harvested from the donor area of the patient’s scalp and transplanted to the recipient area that has thinning or balding. Compared to previous hair transplant methods, such as strip harvesting, Toronto FUE offers three distinct advantages.

FUE hair transplant methods have been designed to minimize patient risks such as scarring and the pain associated with traditional hair transplant techniques. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not involve stitches or sutures. This, along with the small size of the punches, allows the procedure to result in no linear scarring in the donor area of the scalp. As a result, patients are able to wear their hair as short as they like without feeling self-conscious about visible scars on the scalp.


Short Recovery Time

Another key advantage of a Toronto FUE treatment is the short recovery time. Patients are typically able to return to their regular activities in the matter of a few days. The immediate healing process usually takes 7 to 10 days, during which patients experience considerably less post-operative discomfort than with traditional hair transplant methods. There are also minimal restrictions in terms of physical activities after the first few days. This gives patients more freedom to get back to their lives as soon as possible.

Natural Results

One of the most important advantages of a Toronto FUE is the natural result it delivers. Since the grafts are specifically transplanted in such a way that they mimic the angle and direction of your natural hair growth, the transplanted hairs tend to blend in very well with the rest of your hair. This allows patients to be as discreet as they like when it comes to their procedure.

Permanent Results

When considering FUE in Toronto, it is also helpful to know that the results are considered permanent, making it a worthy investment of your time and money. At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, we use both the NeoGraft and SmartGraft systems when it comes to FUE. These highly advanced systems offer all the benefits of regular FUE systems and then some. The two systems also come with a very high success rate and a 94% take rate for the transplanted hairs. Procedures are generally completed within a single visit to our clinic.
