6 Reasons Follicular Unit Extraction Beats Hair Tonic

[Posted on November 10th, 2014 by Dr. Carlos Puig]

Hair tonic has been used for centuries as a way of helping with hair loss. It’s not always as effective, however, particular when there is complete hair loss because the damage to the follicles cannot be reversed. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a common process and there are six reasons to explore it.

1. It’s Permanent

Often, hair tonic is used to strengthen hair that you already have and give it a healthy glow. Once you stop using it, your hair reverts to the way it normally is. Follicular unit extraction is a permanent solution to hair loss.

2. A Doctor is Involved

FUE is handled by a doctor, which means the best procedure is going to be determined. When you get a hair transplantation at the Puig Hair Restoration Center, Dr. Puig has more than 30 years of experience to offer.

3. It Provides Hair Growth

One thing about follicular unit extraction is that it provides actual hair growth. It will grow like hair has done in the past and it can be cut and styled just as you want, without having to worry about what’s going to happen to the hair itself.

4. It Can Be Customized

Hair tonic is used for the head and it’s not customizable. This means that if you don’t have eyebrows or are looking for something fuller, it is ineffective. Puig Hair Restoration Center offers an eyebrow transplant as well as other services. The hair is grafted from another location and then placed where you desire the hair growth.

5. The Transplantation Works Fast

The follicular unit extraction can be handled quickly. Depending upon the number of sessions needed to graft the hair, you can begin seeing growth within a few weeks. This makes it much easier to enjoy than waiting around for months to see if a hair tonic is working like you hope it will.

6. The Results are Desirable

Hair tonic doesn’t always provide desirable results. It may help the existing hair have a nicer sheen, but some hair tonics can also discolor the hair or cause further hair loss. The Puig Hair Restoration Center has years of experience and stands behind all of the work that they do. This can provide a lot of confidence when you make an appointment.
