Hair Removal through FUE

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

Hair removal has been practiced in different ways and can be achieved with either temporary or permanent relief. From regular razor trimming, waxing, electrolysis, and advanced laser hair removal these procedures do the job and do them well. As of recent, we had a patient ask us of a different method of hair removal. He was considering using follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure to achieve this.
“Instead of placing the hair follicle in my scalp, can the extractions be disposed?” His goal was to remove unwanted facial hair quickly and permanently. This is actually a possibility for almost any person who does not want to have a hair transplant procedure, per say. We recommended that the patient at least be evaluated through FOX test to see if the hair grafts can be removed entirely through FUE. This means the grafts have to come out whole after making the FUE incision.
If the hair graft units cannot be extracted whole through FOX test, then the procedure will not be effective. The reason why the hair graft must come out whole is to prevent leaving the bulb in its place. If the bulb remains then the hair shaft may continue to grow normally. A fully extracted graft unit can then be replaced (or disposed).
