Trichoscopy Controlled FUE (Guarantee per Follicle)
You didn’t choose to lose your hair. But you may choose to get it back!
Fue hair transplant is the only medical method that can restore not only your hair, but what you have since lost: most importantly, your self-image.
Guarantee of the number of hair follicles
In all FUE hair transplant procedures a guarantee is given for the number of the emergent follicular units «Guarantee per follicle». Trichoscopy is performed both before and 12 months after the procedure on the recipient and the donor area, during which the exact number of follicular units transferred is counted. In case it is found that some follicular units did not re-grow (excluding a small, normal and acceptable deviation of 5%) an supplementary FUE is performed with no extra cost.

Send us your photos
To find out if you are a suitable candidate for hair transplantation, please send us photos from all sides of your head (front, back and sides) so that we can assess the situation. We’ll let you know about the number of hair follicles needed to cover the diluted areas, as well as the costs involved. You can send your photos via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Take your photos in a bright room without a flash and 30-40 cm distance.

The stages of Trichoscopy Controlled FUE
Trichoscopy Controlled FUE is based on sophisticated diagnostic tools, specially designed software programs and modern therapeutic methods that ensure the highest quality of the result. The process has 5 stages:
Stage 1 – Trichoscopic Analysis
Trichoscopy is the first and necessary step for the assessment of the characteristics of the scalp (number, quality and thickness of hair). All areas of the scalp are examined, recorded and analyzed with the use of a high-resolution camera and a specially designed software program which automates the process of counting and interpreting the findings. Trichoscopy is used to estimate the extent of the donor area that can be exploited, as well as the coverage needs of the hair thinning areas.
Stage 2 – Designing the fue hair transplant
After determining the number of hair follicles available for transplantation, we plan their distribution in the hair thinning areas to achieve the best aesthetic result. In this phase, the front line is also designed in accordance with the age and the progression of hair loss, in order to look 100% natural.
Stage 3 – Performing the fue hair transplant
The hair transplant process begins by extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area. The tools we use, have a diameter of less than 1mm (about 0,6mm). It is as much as needed in order to separate the hair follicles from the surrounding tissue without injuring the donor area or endangering the survival of the hair follicles themselves. The viability of the hair follicles is further enhanced by the modern PRP method (Platelet Rich Plasma), as the grafts are maintained in a rich plasma solution until they are implanted in the hair thinning areas. In this way, they are strengthened in view of their implantation and regrowth. Once hair follicles have been extracted, then they are implanted in the recipient areas with just one movement, in the desired angle, direction and depth in the treatment area, so that the final result is absolutely natural.
Stage 4 – Comparative trichoscopic analysis
Once fue hair transplant has been completed, trichoscopy is repeated at regular intervals, allowing detailed examination and detection of changes in the treated areas with statistical measurements and comparative “before” and “after” images. Also, it makes it possible to re-count the number and density of hair follicles in the hair thinning areas. The complete regrowth of hair follicles is achieved after 12 months.
Stage 5 – Digital Booklet IQ/e-Hair.Health
In IQ Dermatology Clinics, there is yet another innovative tool for monitoring and maintaining hair health. The IQ/e-Hair.Health is a Digital Booklet (electronic folder) which includes the results of blood tests and other important health information, allowing us to monitor the levels of those factors that affect the health of the scalp. We recommend IQ/e-Hair.Health to be renewed regularly and we offer free of charge lifetime coverage for proper hair loss management.
