Before starting the procedure, the doctor always refers the patient for a consultation, during which possible contraindications can be ruled out. The specialist can also discuss the patient’s health and, if necessary, order the necessary tests. He also examines the scalp and checks the phase of the current problem of baldness. The doctor also determines the past illnesses of the patient and his family. A medical history is very important as some medical conditions (e.g. alopecia areata or androgenetic alopecia) are inherited from other family members. In order to enjoy a better result of the procedure, the doctor may also order blood tests and a trichoscope test during the consultation. Thanks to this, it will examine the scalp and hair magnified, which in turn will allow to effectively detect the cause of baldness and eliminate it.
After qualifying the patient positively, the doctor gives local anesthesia to eliminate any unpleasant pain during the procedure. The specialist will shave the Patient’s hair off the treated part in order to collect the follicles for transplantation. Then the collected follicles are implanted in the receiving area, which is also subjected to anesthesia. During the FUE transplant, the doctor uses a thin needle, which additionally minimizes the risk of unpleasant pain.
The last stage of the treatment is to apply a special ointment to the patient’s skin, which improves the wound healing process. The doctor will also provide the necessary information on the care of the skin after the transplant and any recommendations.
