Hair Enhancement – Is it Beneficial?

Posted on: May 14th, 2015 by Dushan Stankovic

Over the years, several hair restoration techniques have been invented – some failed, others were marginally effective, while a few became largely successful. However, the biggest challenge for doctors was to develop painless hair replacement procedures that would reduce or even eliminate harmful side effects.

What are the technicalities?

Although the terms hair enhancement and replacement are used interchangeably, they are not the same. Replacement usually refers to wigs or hair systems. It uses synthetic or human hair for covering receding hairlines temporarily and requires extensive maintenance in order to match the original hair growth. In this case, hair strips are attached to the affected area with clips, tape or adhesives, which can harm delicate follicles. But advanced hair enhancement procedures these days are generally permanent and don’t require post-operative upkeep.

The Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE hair enhancement technique was devised to prevent linear scarring and lessen painful sensations. Each healthy follicle is extracted on a one-by-one basis and transplanted. Follicular Unit Strip Surgery or FUSS is an improved version of FUE where groups of follicles are taken from donor portions on the scalp and implanted on the affected areas. Wounds are closed up with suturing. It is quicker and doesn’t require multiple sessions as compared to traditional FUE procedures. ARTAS, which uses robotics and digital mapping to graft healthy hair follicles onto thinning areas or bald spots, is an ideal example of FUSS.
