THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FUE AND FUE CT
The FUE CT hair transplantation differs from a large number of components of a standard FUE and its stem cell transplantation.
- 70-100% multi-grafts instead of single-grafts
In the FUE CT technique we use 70 to 100% multigrafts (these are hair follicles with at least 3 or more hairs). As a result, 2 to 2.5 times as many hairs are transplanted compared to a normal FUE hair transplant. (Only 1 or 2 hairs per hair follicle are transplanted with the standard FUE). The multi-grafts lead to a very high density and a better end result.
- Proper and safe depth determination multi-grafts
Our specialists know through their years of experience to place the multigrafts in exactly the right and safe depth of the scalp. Here the blood circulation is optimal and the Grafts can fully blossom.
The correct depth differs per scalp type, scalp thickness and hair structure. That is why 30 different protocols have been developed and tailor-made, to help everyone. Combined with a CTS treatment in aftercare, FUE CT minerals booster and the correct depth determination which leads to thicker and stronger hairs.
- FUE CT stimulants during the FUE CT hair transplant
If it is found that blood circulation in the scalp is not optimal, CTS stimulants are administered during treatment. This strengthens blood circulation and blood flow under the scalp. The blood circulation and recovery of the scalp is optimized this way.
- Accelerated development
The end result with a FUE CT treatment is already visible between 6 and 9 months. While the end result with standard FUE treatment is usually visible between 12 and 18 months.
- Customized aftercare
After you have undergone a FUE CT hair transplant with us, the development of hair growth is checked till the end result. On the 3rd, 6th and 9th month we look forward to seeing you at our clinic for supervision.
After having undergone a FUE CT hair transplant, our unique CTS treatment is recommended for the optimal result between 4 – 6 weeks and 4 – 6 months. This unique CTS formula has been developed by the doctors of HairworldIstanbul and gives a huge boost to the transplanted and existing hair.
- Transplanted & Existing hairs benefit from the FUE CT treatment
The FUE CT treatment not only offers fuller and healthier transplanted hairs. A large proportion of our clients also experience that the quality of the existing hair has improved considerably. These findings, of course, also contributed to the high customer satisfaction of 97%.
- Value for money
The price-quality ratio is very favorable because by placing multi-grafts 2 to 2.5 times more hair is implanted than in 1 FUE session. Converted per hair, it is usually cheaper than at most clinics.
Differences in degree of customer satisfaction
The FUE CT method is, in 2018, a superior hair transplant technique that distinguishes itself from the standard FUE hair transplant technique in a large number of areas.
The main difference is observed with the achieved end result. The regular FUE technique only achieves a customer satisfaction of 30% after 1 treatment. Despite the fact that the success of this standard FUE intervention is 70%, customer satisfaction is very low (this is our clinical experience of more than 2000 clients) This is because clients have high expectations of the FUE method. The FUE CT technique can meet these high demands of clients. The FUE CT technique is a totally different technique and offers after 1 treatment a customer satisfaction guarantee of 97%.
This high level of satisfaction is due to two factors:
- A higher hair density is achieved. More than 70% of the transplanted grafts are multi-grafts and therefore consist of 2-6 hairs. These multi-grafts can only be properly restored by very experienced hair transplant doctors.
- Transplanted and existing hairs, show a lasting improved hair structure after 1 treatment.
A larger number of hairs per treatment: Triple grafts instead of single grafts
A hair follicle (graft) can consist of multiple hairs. This varies from 1 to 6 hairs per hair follicle. Approximately 70 percent of the hair follicles contain 3 hairs (duo or triple grafts). Until now, Hairworld is the only clinic that can harvest multi-grafts from the donor area with the FUE CT technique, transplant them in the right way and also allow them to grow completely back.

Because of this large number of multi-grafts, a single treatment is often sufficient. Clinics who use the regular FUE technique often plan 2 to 3 transplants, spread over several years, in an attempt to achieve a similar result.
The standard FUE technique offers a routine treatment. The materials used are not custom-made for every patient. In addition, the microsurgical technique used is very poor and a basic hair transplant technique. The same type of treatment is performed with every patient.
Between 2013 and 2014, Hairworld Istanbul researched 180 patients to further develop the FUE CT. Several techniques and materials were developed to harvest grafts, make skin channels and to place donor grafts back in the right depth and direction. 30 different individualized treatment protocols resulted from this study. Every patient receives a personal and optimized treatment. This specific treatment has played a large part in the excellent results achieved in recent years.
Blood flow stimulation during FUE CT treatment
During treatment, blood circulation treatments are also carried out. The blood circulation is stimulated in various ways, which facilitates the transplantation process and greatly helps wound recovery and hair growth process.
Aftercare by FUE CT: The unique Circulation treatment (CTS), mineral cure and shampoo
A part of the FUE CT treatment is the extensive aftercare. Several techniques are used to promote the nutrition and recovery of the hair root. For this, three products are offered to get the best result. These simulants consist of a FUE CT mineral cure, a hair growth promoting FUE CT shampoo and one or more blood circulation promoting treatments CT. In this way, vitamins, minerals and herbal extracts are offered to the body in various forms. The post-treatment optimizes the recovery of the transplanted hair and also inhibits the breakdown process of the existing hair.
A faster recovery is observed after a FUE CT treatment compared to a standard FUE. Scabs and wounds often disappear more quickly. The first results are already visible after 3-6 months and end result at 9 months.
Table 1 Development stages hair growth
|Time period||Percentage of hair growth. Transplanted hairs|
|8-10 weeks||Stubble (1-3%)|
|9 months||90-100 % front side and bridge|
|12 months||100% crown|
*The table above is based on the average results. Individuals can get faster or slower results during the hair growth process. After 12 months, complete hair growth must have developed in every healthy patient.
Table 2: Differences between the regular FUE method and the FUE CT method
|Standard FUE treatment and hair stem cell transplantation (HST)||FUE CT treatment|
|Customer satisfaction after 1 session: 30%||Customer satisfaction after 1 session 97%|
| 2 to 5 sessions needed for the end result
|1 session often sufficient for end result. Extreme form baldness in end stage|
|70-100% single grafts||More than 70% triple grafts|
| Standardized protocol: everyone receives the same treatment
|No suitable treatment for recovery operation||Great expertise and excellent results for recovery operations (after undesired FUE or HST result)|
|Lasting fine structure of transplanted hairs|| Thickening transplanted hair and great chance (70%) on improved existing hair structure
|No specific aftertreatment with simulants|| The unique CTS treatment (optional):
Post-treatment which stimulates hair growth and inhibits hair loss to existing hair
|No supplementation or cure||FUE CT Mineral treatment and blood flow stimulating FUE CT shampoo|
|Average recovery time FUE||Accelerated recovery time compared to FUE|
