Follicular unit extraction

Removing single follicular units, one at a time, from the donor site in a small cluster by using a tiny punch excision. A punch used to extract single follicular units is typically 1mm diameter or less.

If Dr. Shapiro does the FUE method he uses special Syris polarized loops for ultra-magnification when extracting the FUE and for incisions with the FU. And using the ERTIP motorized FUE system the most advanced sharp point extraction system in the world.
