Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
This type of hair restoration has a unique foot hold in this industry. Just to keep things simple yet complex the original FUE was using a very large circular punch to remove a group of follicles... that being several groups of follicular units (simple)... from the donor area. This old school technology was used in the 1990's.
Fast forward to to 2000... the circular punch size was drastically reduced... to encompass a single follicular unit (complex). FUE is a revamped technology. An analogy would be comparing a neanderthal man to the homo sapien.
The average punch size of the old school punch sizes was around 4.0mm in size. The average punch size of todays FUE is around 1.0mm or smaller.
