follicular unit extraction

An advanced method of transplanting hair follicles which is performed without scalpel or stitches. The transplant takes place under strong magnification, using special microsurgical instruments to ensure no visible scarring occurs. Because it is less traumatic than other hair transplant techniques, several procedures can be carried out on the same patient within a short period of time.
