The Next Advancement In FUE Technology Is Here

FUE Tornado Punch for an FUE hair transplant in Canada.

Join us for the next big advancement in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a hair transplant technique where individual follicular units, or grafts, are extracted using a motorized punch. It contrasts FUE with the older method, Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), which leaves a linear scar on the back of the scalp. While many patients prefer to avoid this scar, FUE itself has come a long way since its beginnings.

Initially, FUE techniques were met with skepticism due to the limitations of the technology. Early versions from Japan used large punches that resulted in unnatural-looking hair with a “pluggy” appearance. Thankfully, the field has seen significant advancements. Todays focus is on minimizing damage to the delicate roots and follicles during extraction. This not only improves the overall growth and health of the transplanted hair, but also allows for a more natural aesthetic outcome. Additionally, surgeons now strive to extract as much surrounding fat tissue as possible, as this “padding” further enhances the growth and survival of the transplanted follicles.

It’s very important that any trauma to your harvested hair grafts or the skin in your donor area be kept to a bare minimum, or ideally none at all. Thanks to a brand new type of FUE graft harvester called the Tornado Punch by Dr. Devroye, we can now harvest grafts with the least amount of trauma, giving you faster healing times and better growth from your new hair grafts.

This technology utilizes a low-speed rotating blade and vibrations to gently free the follicle, minimizing contact and potential damage. This exemplifies the continuous strive for improvement within the field of hair transplantation. The ultimate goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for patients, and this often involves pushing the boundaries of existing technology.

Factors like torque and rotational speed during the extraction process can impact the quality of the hair grafts. Your surgeon not only has to know how to harvest these grafts, but also harvest them based on their exit angle from the scalp, which can change several times in small area alone.

Over his many years of hair transplant experience, Dr. Sharma has accrued a huge amount of knowledge and skills, and this next advancement in FUE technology will not only advance his already stellar skillset further, but will also get you all the more better results in your hair restoration journey.
