Like FUE, CIT Hair Transplant involves removing follicular units one at a time and placing them into the recipient areas. Also, as with FUE (and unlike with strip procedures), CIT does not leave a linear scar on the back of the patient’s head. CIT sets itself apart through its refinement and the specialty instruments Dr. Cole personally developed. What makes the CIT procedure so superior is the number of hairs per graft and the extremely low transection rate. You can read more about the best type of hair transplant technique available.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), currently, is the most desirable hair transplant technique for most patients. It raised in prevalence starting the early 2000s, with Dr. Cole being one its first pioneers, as an alternative to Follicular Unit Extraction (FUT), a transplant technique that leaves more scarring and demands a longer recovery time. As FUE developed and gained prevalence, however, it developed several variants that orient towards differences in technique or instruments.
A complex procedure, FUE involves extracting one or a small cluster of follicular grafts and then individually transplanting them to the recipient area. How the hair transplant surgeon accomplishes this is up to their discretion. Some prefer manual punches while others prefer mechanical or automated. Similarly, some prefer to extract every follicle individually while others blend different groupings for time efficiency. Several types rely on specialized devices.
Cole Isolation Technique (CIT®), Dr. Cole's namesake FUE variant, are both comparatively quicker and bring top-caliber results. There are a few reasons why CIT® is the superior choice, but the main difference between it and generic FUE is intrusiveness. CIT® is among the least invasive hair transplant options available, leading to a few major benefits. We list the primary advantages below.
