The top choice for hair restoration, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and similar techniques' one major drawback is shaving donor areas. Many candidates forgo the groundbreaking procedure to preserve their current hair length and style. Instead, they select no-shave FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) -a procedure that offers inferior results and noticeable scarring.
Not anymore! Patients can now undergo FUE, including CIT®, without needing to change their hairstyle. No-shave CIT®, what we call C2G, offers patients superior results while remaining discreet and within a reasonable cost of surgery. Keep reading to learn more about this exciting new procedure!
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is currently the world's most effective hair transplantation method. It has several key advantages over Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), including:
FUE will continue gaining prevalence as it develops and branches out. Today, specialists may use robotic machines, mechanical utensils, and more. Each has their strengths and detractions. None, though, really compare to Dr. Cole's innovative Cole Isolation Technique (CIT®).
CIT® makes significant improvements to FUE. The method uses minimum depth invasion, leading to several benefits that generic FUE does not offer. These include:
While far more effective than FUT, CIT® has had one detraction: the requirement of shaving for surgery. This is actually the one reason why a client would choose FUT -the patient's hair can cover the procedure and its lateral scar. New advancements in CIT®, however, are making options more available.
Those considering no-shave FUT now have an alternative: C2G. Patients that must, or prefer, to keep their hairstyle can now enjoy the benefits of CIT®. Electing C2G rather than no-shave FUT brings numerous benefits. They include:
Patients overwhelmingly endorse C2G. A developing technique, Forhair typically transplants 1,000 grafts per session. The additional time these procedures demand, however, is well worth the wait. C2G combines the best of both worlds, allowing patients to remain discreet while also adding density and improving their hairline. Find out more today by scheduling a free consultation.
Many of our patients undergo hair growth treatments after their C2G procedure. These reparative mixtures use growth factors to stimulate follicle growth and scalp repair. Two types are most common:
Combining these treatments has several benefits. Most notable is a sustained release that continuously nourishes the scalp. Post-op applications bring marked improvement to growth and density. Further, the combined treatment helps regenerate stem cells in the extraction site. This leads to 30% to 40% of regeneration in C2G extraction sites -or 300 to 400 new follicles for every 1000 grafts. This is huge! Hair transplants will often only *relocate* follicles from one area to another. C2G plus ACell is among the only hair transplant strategies that increase hair count.
I had a CIT non-shaven procedure...I appreciated the time with Dr. Cole and his commitment to customer satisfaction. He went beyond the agreed number of grafts to ensure the result would be satisfactory. Dr. Cole and his staff took the additional time ensure a natural look that so far is exceeding expectations
