How does the treatment work?
The Female Hair Transplant in Abu Dhabi works like any other transplant method. Healthy follicles are taken from a donor area on the head and then transplanted into the recipient region. This covers up the region of hair loss on the head and the balding spots as well.
First, the dermatologist and the patient have a detailed discussion about the patient’s problems, concerns, and expectations from the treatment. The doctor then carries out a thorough physical examination on the patient’s head and scalp to check the current condition. Medical history is also reviewed and the doctor may also carry out some blood tests to confirm the patient is ideal for the treatment.

- The candidate should stop taking blood-thinning medications and supplements for days before the treatment
- The recipient should not use any chemicals on their scalp before the procedure
- Smoking and alcohol consumption should also be avoided

This procedure commonly known as the strip method is a hair regrowth treatment in which a client’s hair is implanted in clusters of one to four hairs called follicular units. Nerves, sebaceous glands, tiny muscles, and thin vellus hairs are also found in follicles.
Follicular unit extraction (FUE)
