How long is the healing period and what is the healing process like?
FUT/Strip: After a strip procedure the skin needs about 12 months to heal before another operation can be performed. The doctor must be sure that the skin has regained its full elasticity before operating again.
FUE IM: In consultation with the patient, the doctor transplants the number of hair follicles needed to the recipient area. It is even possible for patients to influence the number and positioning of hair follicles during the operation. New procedures are not subject to waiting periods.
