The Cole

FUE System

Cole Instruments was founded in 2022. The company makes some of the most revolutionized surgical tools, including the devices and supplies for FUT, FUE, and hair transplants in general.

One of the significant challenges for hair transplant surgeons who first performed FUE was that they did not have special equipment. This lack of specialized equipment made it more difficult for them to do their job. Dr. Cole knew that specialized instruments would lead to better results, and he developed some punches for himself. He found that these punches were better than the ones he was using.

Cole Instruments specializes in providing hair restoration surgeons with the highest quality tools to achieve unparalleled results. The company offers a surgical instrument line specializing in hair restoration products developed by Dr. John Peter Cole. Cole Instruments has the best tools for hair transplants in general, including:

  • Follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
  • Follicular unit extraction (FUE).


Chuck and Andy Ellis have been in the industry for more than 30 years. They take great pride in delivering high-quality products to their customers who serve the needs of hair transplant clients and are committed to providing excellent customer service.

FUE Hair Restoration Tools Developed by Dr. John Cole

Dr. John P. Cole, a well-known hair transplant surgeon, created devices and instruments for FUE hair transplantation methods. 

In many scenarios, the extraction of follicular units can risk splitting or breaking the bulb of the units themselves. These tiny strands are delicate and brittle by nature, and they may not be able to withstand the removal from their root system for implantation without sustaining damage in some form or another. These devices dramatically decrease the risk of severe follicle damage. Moreover, they offer more efficient and safer hair extraction.

In addition, Cole Instruments delivers many hair transplant products that greatly help a doctor perform hair restoration procedures. These instruments give patients better results and increase the overall efficacy. FUE hair transplantation is indeed a sensitive and time-consuming procedure, and Cole Instruments knows these facts. That’s why all their products are created and designed for:

  • Donor harvesting.
  • Graft storage.
  • Recipient site preparation.
  • Graft preparation.
  • Hairline design.

FUE Extraction Punches From Cole Instruments

Cole Instruments makes four different types of punches:

  • Classic Punch.
  • Best-Value Coated Punches.
  • Surrounded Punches.
  • Best Value Titanium Nitride-Coated Punches.

When a hair transplant professional chooses a specific type of FUE extraction punch, the individual modifies it depending on the patient’s specific needs. Modifications also depend on whether the doctor uses a manual extraction or power-driven follicular unit extraction. With the state-of-the-art Cole Instruments punches, performing hair extractions is now easier.

This technology enhancement decreases the transection of hair since the punches are between 0.85 and 1.30 millimeters in size. Moreover, this technology facilitates the minimal depth penetration of the “Cole Isolation Technique.” This technique helps a hair transplant professional tailor the procedure to you to be more comfortable and efficient.
