The Cole FUE System Process
The process begins with a dermal depth analysis allowing the surgeon to properly judge the depth of the arrector pili muscle. That is the smooth muscle that connects the hair follicle to the connective tissue of the skin. There are depth variations from person to person. There are even variations from one section of the donor area to another. We want these measurements to remain as precise as possible.
Once we have those measurements, the surgeon uses an extremely sharp, stainless steel Cole FUE punch that allows surgeons to rotate, oscillate, and adjust the depth of the cut. Cole instruments manufactures some of the sharpest punches on the market, but “sharp” alone isn’t enough. High amplitude oscillation makes a huge difference too, allowing the surgeon to reach a deeper level of the hypodermis. The tool glides over the hair shaft and then gently grabs the follicle without damaging it while producing a fast, complete separation.
The tools also allows your surgeon to set precise extraction parameters to suit your unique, specific hair follicles, or even the area of the body the surgeon is working on. For example, the operator may change the settings when transplanting from the chest or beard area, or even to transplant long hair.
Each punch allows for perfect calibration and is designed to reduce friction during graft cutting.
The quality of the tools combines with your surgeon’s skills to produce incredible results.
