Comparing a transplant done using follicular units extracted from the scalp using an HST hair stem cell transplantation is an interesting experience. The FUE is widely known, while the HST is still largely unknown.
The concept of FUE is that to be achieved, we need to consider the size of the donor area. That is, the area in the occipital part of the cranium in which the follicular units develop and are not sensitive to dihydrotestosterone and thus not at risk of falling.
The patient has the capital available for transplantation in this donor area in fact. The FUE technique removes whole follicular units from the donor area and moves them to the receiving area. Capillary restoration is carried out as per this process.
FUE technique limits
More of the donor area’s follicular units must be removed for the larger size of the area to be restored. It is therefore clear that the relationship between the ability to restore and the wealth of the donor area is obvious. The patient can collect a substantial number of grafts when the donor area is abundant. If the donor area is not abundant, the patient may not be able to afford a transplant.
FUE moves follicle units without regenerating them
If a surgical operator doesn’t know how to distribute the samples correctly, they could make a serious mistake. The density decreases as the donor area is removed in this case. We must consider the fact that a transplant leaves a vacuum where it is extracted. The patient’s ability to wear short, shaved hair is ultimately limited by all these samples, and therefore all these voids because her donation zone would be dotted with a huge number of empty spaces.
FUE technique advised against young people
It’s challenging to intervene on a young patient due to the donor area’s limited number of follicular units. A patient who is young and has alopecia that progresses over time has alopecia that is progressing over time. If he has FUE surgery at a young age and consumes a significant portion of his follicular unit capital, he can still recover from it later if his alopecia has become more important, he will probably not have enough follicular units available to get an acceptable recovery.
HST Hair stem cell transplant resolves the limitations of FUE
The HST hair stem cell transplant overcomes all these difficulties or limitations that EUF unfortunately presents. Not all the follicular unit is taken completely, but only a small amount is taken with a small needle.
The stem cells, contained within the follicle unit, are therefore divided into two groups. The new follicular unit produced by each of these groups will be identical to the previous one. Follicular units are employed to create 2 to reconstruct the donor area and fill the recipient area. The first benefit that becomes clear is that we do not have any capital limit of follicular units available.
Donor area becomes regenerated
The donor area that regenerates in 9 months may be able to provide follicular units for transplantation indefinitely. The donor zone is regenerating, so that it is no longer strewn with empty spaces, as we saw in an FUE intervention.
There are not losses, neither scar
No shortage, no scars, or no scars are present. In this way, the donor zone regenerates just as before any extraction. The type of transplantation is also appropriate for youth. Subsequent transplants can restore alopecia that has been increasing over the years, without decreasing the follicular unit capital as we have previously observed. So, there is no problem in properly distributing the withdrawals, because in any case those withdrawals carry over. This is a result that is entirely natural. And the fact that you use extremely tiny needles means that the result is quite natural.
The donor area in a HST procedure is virtually unlimited, compared to a FUE procedure, the patient is permitted to restore even large areas that are not otherwise possible to restore with FUE.
