This particular tool is utilized to make a tiny circular slit in the skin around the follicular unit. The graft is then taken out straight from the scalp.
Usually the client's hair from the donor site where these grafts are being taken out is trimmed, cut in very short length or more or less shaved so that the doctor will be able to clearly observe the client's scalp to carry out the procedure correctly.
The tiny hole that is left behind after extracted the follicle unit will recovery in next few days. The minute opening then began to contract as it recovers, leaving behind a round scar that will be less visible. The FUE patient usually finishes up with a number of tiny dim colored scars that are generally unnoticeable to the bare eye just after the patient's hair starts to grow out.
