A person can lose on average, 50-100 strands of hair a day; this is part of the hair renewal process. However, some individuals may suffer from excessive hair loss at some point of time in their lives due to several factors. The three main factors that cause hair loss can include:
SL Clinic’s specialised Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a method of obtaining follicular units (i.e Hair Transplant) – naturally occurring groups of one to four hairs, for hair transplantation. In FUE harvesting, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the hair restoration patient’s donor area, ideally one at a time. SL Clinic Singapore also specialises in Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), another form of a hair transplant, where a patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring follicular units of 1 to 4 strands of hair. Follicular units also contain sebaceous glands, nerves, a small muscle, and occasional fine vellus hairs. In FUT, these small units can allow the doctor to transplant thousands of grafts in a single session, which maximises the cosmetic impact of the procedure. FUT is favoured over older hair transplantation procedures that use large grafts that can often produce an unnatural look. In a properly-performed FUT procedure at SL Clinic Singapore, the results can mimic the way your hair naturally grows. As with any procedure or treatment, results can vary by individual.
