Bio-Follicular Unit Transplantation (Bio-FUT) is a process that uses a patient's own regenerative cells to improve follicular unit transplantation procedure. The overall results of the hair transplant procedure are greatly enhanced thanks to this approach.
BIO-FUE is very similar to the FUE technique. In this technique the growth factors are separated from blood and re-injected into the transplanted area giving extremely great results for hair growth(PRP). This is not only helpful for transplanted hair but also for strengthening the existing thinning hair follicles. It is an advanced technique which is stitch less and painless.
When hair follicles are harvested in a traditional hair transplant surgery, they are usually kept on a saline-based solution to ensure they are viable for the eventual transplant procedure. Bio-FUT hair transplants use a plasma-rich solution rather than a saline-based one. This plasma-rich solution includes proteins from a patient's blood, allowing the harvested hair follicles to receive nutrients while they are stored.
Once the follicular units have been placed, the hair restoration specialist will then inject serum into the treated area. This helps promote tissue healing as well as new cellular growth, an especially important consideration for surgical procedures.
In Hair Transplantation there are several methods of harvesting hair from donor area like Punch Graft, Multiple Bladed Knife, Single Bladed Knife Excision etc. Vertical harvesting is the latest excellent technique for minimizing scars while the hair is exiting the scalp & optimal yield of the donor area in FUE technique.
Good candidates for bio enhanced FUT are people who have experienced serious hair loss and would like to have a full head of hair again. This is one of the many options available for hair restoration. The added advantage of Bio-FUT is that the hair follicles transplanted are enhanced in a plasma-rich solution, which includes proteins from the patient’s own blood.
The number of sessions required for BIO-FUT depends on the severity of the balding on the individual.
As the main solution used in the procedure is created with the patient’s own cells, the procedure is very safe.
