-Revolutionary technique offers hope for hair restoration in individuals of African descent
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- A groundbreaking study published in the Dermatologic Surgery Journal marks a significant turning point in the search for effective hair restoration among individuals of African descent. Titled "Follicular Unit Excision in Patients of African Descent: A Skin-Responsive Technique," this study introduces an innovative approach tailored to the unique hair and skin characteristics of this demographic.
New skin-responsive hair transplant technique revolutionizes treatment for patients of African descent
Led by Dr. Sanusi Umar of the Division of Dermatology, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, and Dr. U Hair and Skin Clinic in Manhattan Beach, the multinational team of seven-country study experts presents the UGraft Zeus® device from Skin Sensitive Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) (Manhattan Beach, CA). This state-of-the-art device uniquely accommodates hair curvature, skin thickness, and firmness in hair transplant patients, setting a new standard in hair restoration procedures.
Key study results include:
The skin-sensitive technique achieves remarkable success, with a mean graft transection rate of 3-6%, showing its effectiveness.
Skin thickness and firmness were identified as crucial factors in graft attrition rates, with hair curvature influencing outcome to a lesser extent.
The Dr. UGraft Zeus FUE device consistently minimizes graft transection in all patients of African descent without exception, leading to high levels of surgeon satisfaction and a willingness to adopt the skin-responsive device for FUE procedures in patients of African descent.
Dr. Umar emphasizes the importance of the study results, stating, "Our skin response technique marks a significant step toward a universal hair transplant methodology that caters to each individual's unique physiological characteristics." As the holder of several patents on UGraft Zeus technologies, Dr. Umar added: "In addition, we have created a universal scoring scale to accurately classify the skin and hair characteristics of all people, regardless of ethnicity. Recognizing the great diversity of skin and hair characteristics within any given population, especially the population of African descent, has been instrumental in solving this lasting hair transplant challenge.This innovation can potentially revolutionize hair restoration practices. hair and improve access to this transformative procedure."
The study underscores the importance of personalized medical approaches, particularly for diverse patient groups. As medical advances continue to flourish, this breakthrough offers renewed hope for people seeking hair restoration, including those with afro-textured hair.
