FUE technique and FUT STRIP: what are the differences?
FUE and STRIP FUT are two techniques adopted in the trichological field, but how do they differ from each other? In fact, FUE and STRIP describe two peculiar approaches: in the first case, FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction, or extraction of the follicular units, while in the second case, STRIP stands for strip and indicates the strip of the scalp taken by the patient.
The STRIP technique is known as FUT, which stands for Follicular Unit Transplantation. While in the FUE the follicular units are extracted one by one from the scalp of the nape, in the case of the STRIP, a strip of scalp containing the hair follicles is extracted.
Nowadays there are many patients who, after having undergone one of the operations described above, are not entirely satisfied with what they have achieved. Especially if these interventions are performed abroad at a low cost, in order to avoid returning the patient several times, he is promised a mega intervention by transplanting up to 5000 follicular units.
The risks of a mega hair transplant are a necrosis of the scalp that is traumatized by many wounds caused by different grafts. A second risk concerns the emptying of the donor area, or insufficient donor hair transplantation, which reaches the limit of the follicular capital available to it.
The Hair Stem Cell Transplantation method
Hair Stem Cell Transplantation (HST), represents the best technique for insufficient donor hair transplantation, for baldness and impoverished donor areas. HST is a satisfactory solution for all those who have extensive baldness, at least level 5 on the Norwood scale, with at least 30/40% of follicular units absent. The ideal patient to undergo this technique may never have undergone interventions of this type, or have undergone one of the techniques described above without having solved his problem.
Hair Stem Cell Transplantation consists of only partial removal of the hair follicle, through the use of 0.5 / 0.6 mm punches, of very small grafts. But why take only a small portion of the follicles? The aim is that the stem cells contained in a follicular unit are able to reproduce the same follicular unit in 2 different places. Simply put, each follicular unit tends to generate two of exactly the same type. In fact, we speak of the multiplication of follicular units. And it is thanks to this multiplication that it is possible to solve the problem of insufficient donor hair transplantation.
