Whats a follicular unit?

A naturally occurring grouping of about one to four hair follicles present in the skin comprises a follicular unit. On average, a follicular unit contains nearly 2.4 hairs.

Follicular Unit Extraction:

One option at Beverly Hills Hair Restoration is FUE. Follicular Unit Extraction is a method of extracting single follicular units, one at a time, from the donor site by using a tiny punch excision. A punch used to extract single follicular units is typically 1mm in diameter or less. This technique is mostly utilized for body hair transplantation, scalp as well as repair of previously transplanted scalp. One of the negative aspects of this technique is it is not suitable for mega sessions where any follicular grafts are needed.
