Hair loss is a condition where the hair on the head sheds excessively. It is a mentally taxing experience to watch your hair fall to the floor as you brush them or blow-dry them. It is no wonder that people feel less self-esteem of hair shed and opt for different ways to regain their hair. Many shampoos and cosmetic products claim to fight hair fall but rarely do they ever live up to their promise.

Living in Dubai, a city of the beautiful who take pride in their appearance, the need for having spick and span hair is amplified. A Hair transplant is one such impeccable hair loss solution in Dubai that many have benefited from and continue to do so. Conventionally this treatment was mostly opted for by men but now many women are also using it to attain a full set of hair.

Follicular Unit Hair Transplant

A Hair Transplant dubai brings promised result if done in a safe hand. At Cocoona Center for Hair Transplantation, the procedure is performed with two methods- FUE and FUT. The Strip Removal method in which an entire strip of hair was removed from the donor area at the back of the scalp, and then dissected into individual hair follicles to be transplanted into that area where one has no hair. This technique is popular for successful results but requires a longer recovery time and leaves a very fine scar on the head in some cases.

Follicular Unit Extraction

The other and more state-of-the-art technique is the Follicular Unit Extraction method. In this procedure, individual hair follicles are extracted from the donor region and implanted into the balding regions one by one. FUE is more appropriate for candidates who use to wear very short haircuts because there will be no any linear scar on donor site using this method.

The FUE method has a shorter recovery time than the strip removal method whose healing period is much longer. An FUE method is also good for those who have not enough donor hair as it can take hair from parts of the body such as the beard or the chest and can be use it on the scalp. However, compatible concerns are there.


The FUE method also has a higher cost since it requires more skill, more labor and is an advanced method. Candidates are of the pre-conceived opinion that this treatment would be painful but the truth is that the patient is completely unaware to pain during surgery and is given some sort of entertainment such as movie to watch so that he does not get bored while waiting and his mind is distracted from the procedure.
