FUE

FUE hair transplant or ATP (Advanced Tricho Pigmentation)

By Alex

Trying to decide on the right course of action for your hair loss can become quite hard. There are a number of different treatments on the market that can help you deal with hair loss. Today we’re going to compare two of the most innovative hair loss treatments and help you decide what one is for you.

What is an FUE hair transplant?

An FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplant is a revolutionary method of transplanting hair from one area of the scalp to another, to create the appearance of a full head of natural hair and to help with the appearance of bald patches.

During the process, individual hair follicles are removed from an area of the scalp that is fuller. Usually found at the back and sides of the head, this is referred to as the donor area. During the extraction process, you will be under local anaesthesia and a micro surgical extraction instrument is used to remove each follicle.

Our doctors then use a micro surgical needle to puncture the area of the scalp that is going to receive the grafts. This area is usually thinning, or bald and is referred to as the recipient area. Our team of doctors are experts in blending in the hair and inserting the grafts at an angle and density that will match the original hair and resemble a natural and realistic hair pattern.

Once you’ve undergone the FUE hair transplant procedure the results are permanent. The initial transplant hair will shed a few weeks after your treatment, but it will grow back and result in a full head of hair.

What is ATP?

ATP (advanced tricho pigmentation) is an innovate treatment offered at the Harley Street Hair Clinic. The treatment works to achieve the appearance of natural hair on both the eyebrow and scalp area.

ATP works in a similar way to a tattoo, natural pigments are applied to the area where you want to replicate the appearance of hair. Our team of experts work to replicate the appearance of hair follicles on the scalp, and natural hair strokes on the brow area.

The specialised process deposits tiny amounts of pigments to the recipient area. Once applied you’ll begin to see realistic results that work towards replicating real hair.

What treatment is best for me?

Both our FUE and ATP treatments are designed to treat hair loss and work towards the appearance of a fuller looking head of hair. However, both treatments work in totally different ways and suit a difference audience.

FUE is the perfect treatment for those who have a receding hairline that they wish to reconstruct or for those who have balding areas on their head. You can use the hair you have to ‘fill in’ these gaps and the results will leave you with a full head of natural hair.

ATP works well on those who have almost a full head of hair but have noticed thinning in some areas; the treatment can be used to apply pigments in the thinning areas, making the hair appear fuller.

The treatment is also perfect for those with almost no hair who want to replicate the appearance of a closely shaven head. ATP can be used to apply pigment to the whole scalp, creating the appearance of short, stubble like hair.
