FUE in Afro-Caribbean Hair
There are unique qualities of Afro-Caribbean hair that makes it extremely challenging for us to perform hair restoration on clients seeking FUE.
For starters, unlike Asian or Caucasian hair follicles, Afro-Caribbean hair follicles are curly and have certain unique features. On the positive side, this curliness offers great results with fewer follicles, it also poses a few challenges.
Instrumentation used in FUE is traditionally a sharp straight instrument. This makes it extremely difficult to manoeuvre the punch beneath the skin, wherein the visibility is nil. Hence historically patients of Afro-Caribbean origin seeking FUE were discouraged to do so because of the high levels of transection associated with extraction of follicles using traditional FUE techniques.
As illustrated from the photos on this page, using improved techniques of the 3G FUE technique, we have overcome the difficulties associated with extraction of follicles of patients of Afro-Caribbean origin.
