African American FUE Hair Transplant Process

Our African American hair loss treatment is a surprisingly simple process and is one of the best hair loss treatments for black males and females:

Follicular Unit Extraction

So, what is FUE, exactly?
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) involves the meticulous extraction of individual hair follicles from the donor area – typically located at the back or sides of your scalp. This precise method preserves the natural appearance of the donor region while gathering the essential building blocks for your hair-restoration journey.

PRP Injection

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections is an advanced technique that utilizes the healing properties of your blood’s platelets to stimulate hair growth. PRP injections are seamlessly integrated into your African American FUE hair transplant process, promoting the vitality and longevity of your transplanted hair.

Implant Extracted Hair Follicles

Each extracted hair follicle, meticulously prepared for transplantation, is strategically implanted into the recipient sites. These tiny incisions are made with precision, ensuring the transplanted hair grows naturally and harmoniously alongside your existing hair. This step of the process defines the foundation of your rejuvenated appearance.

Live Confidently

Once your treatment is complete, it’s time for your FUE hair transplant recovery. During this time, you can reclaim your confidence and live confidently, knowing that your hair restoration journey is in the hands of experts dedicated to your satisfaction.

Are there other African American hair restoration options?

When looking at your hair restoration for black males and females options, along with FUE, follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy stand out:

  • FUT: Involves removing a thin strip of tissue from the donor area, with hair follicles extracted from this strip. Can provide higher graft yields compared to FUE. The FUE vs FUT choice depends on your preference for scarring and specific hair restoration goals.
  • PRP: Through a straightforward procedure, your blood is drawn, processed to concentrate platelets, and then re-injected into the scalp. The PRP vs FUE comparison is ongoing, but know that PRP promotes hair density and helps preserve thinning hair.

No matter your goals, our treatments for hair restoration for African American women and men are customized to your situation.

The challenges of an afro hair transplant

Even though certain challenges surrounding hair restoration for African Americans exist, our expert team is well-equipped to deal with them all:

1. Limited Donor Area: Afro-textured hair often has a lower density in the donor area, which can limit the number of viable grafts available for 

2. Curved Hair Follicles: The curvature of afro-textured hair follicles can make extraction and implantation more complex. Our technicians are skilled in adapting their techniques to accommodate these curved follicles to avoid damage during the procedure.

3. Tension and Torsion: The unique curl pattern of afro hair can result in tension and torsion during extraction. This can increase the risk of follicle damage or transection if not handled with care and expertise, which our team possesses in abundance.

4. Post-Transplant Care: The care regimen after an afro hair transplant is crucial. The curly nature of the hair can make it more prone to tangling and damage if not managed properly.

5. Scar Visibility: Afro-textured hair can sometimes have a lower ability to conceal scars, particularly in the donor area. This can make scarring more noticeable, which we take into consideration during the hair transplantation planning and execution.

6. Natural Hair Appearance: Achieving natural-looking results with the transplanted afro hair requires careful attention to the angle, direction, and curl pattern of the implanted hair.

7. Scalp Irritation: Due to the tightly coiled nature of ethnic afro-textured hair, there can be an increased risk of scalp irritation after the procedure. Proper post-operative care and gentle handling are crucial to minimize discomfort and potential complications.

At Solve Clinics, our expertise extends to addressing these unique challenges, ensuring a successful and satisfying hair restoration experience for African Americans.
