The grafts are loosened with a specific device, a FUE motor, and collected with a tweezer-like instrument. The channels where the roots are implanted are opened with a scoop and pin-like instrument. The collected grafts contained some tissue particles. These tissue fragments are removed and the neat follicles are placed into the ducts. Finally, the donor area is covered with bandages

YES! Hair transplantation is a process of permanent hair regrowth of balding areas. DHT hormones are the main cause of hair loss, especially in men. DHT hormones accumulate in the hair follicles when secreted in excess and inhibit the nourishment of the hair roots. This process is the basis of hair loss. It is the main reason why the donor area is almost always located at the back of the head, as the hair follicles in that area are insensitive to the DHT hormone. After adapting to their new location, the innovation is retained and you will have permanent hair for the rest of your life, provided that you comply with the aftercare program of course!
