Hair Transplant Course: The aesthetics industry is seeing an ever-growing number of areas of the face and body that can be improved with low-invasive treatments. Hair loss is possibly one of the most distressing signs of aging so it is no wonder that a procedure becoming so heavily in demand is hair restoration. Advancing technology and improved skills mean that people are experiencing truly amazing results with little risk, discomfort or downtime.
The term “restoration” is given to the consumer need to treat balding areas of the scalp and it can also apply to the face such as beards and eyebrows. In the research to “cure” balding in both men and women, many approaches have been explored from hormonal therapies to topical lotions, stitching (or knitting) dead hair, to surgery. But it is really the latter option that offers the safest and most reliable solution to long-term, natural-looking hair.
If you are considering training in this area of aesthetics you will need to get a full understanding of the different types of restoration or transplant procedures and what is the best option for your patient’s hair loss problem.
Background on the Two Main Procedures
The two main procedures that are emerging as the most successful are Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT). They are both essentially a form of a transplant from existing hair follicles but there are significant differences. The most important factor in both methods is keeping the hair follicle unit healthy and intact.
FUE takes singular or small clusters of follicles from an area of strong healthy hair which is then prepared for transplant in the balding area. This process requires superb skills by the surgeon and can even be conducted by doctor-directed robotics technology.
FUT involves the removal of an area of skin with a crop of healthy hair. Also known as a graft, this harvesting-style method is similar to laying grass turfs for an even lawn! The downside to this practice is the risk of scarring.
What people are finding so good about these two ways of hair restoration is that the hair follicles behave as they would have in their previous location. This means that the results are long-lasting and they may not experience repeated hair loss in the recovered area until they become very old or their genetic chances are complete and rapid balding at a young age.
Courses offered/ Course content
Both FUT and FUE training courses are comprised of three modules:
