What Is the WAW FUE System?
The WAW FUE System is an innovative hair restoration technique that uses a particular machine to extract donor hairs from the back of your head. This process allows for more follicles than traditional harvesting methods, leading to fuller, natural-looking results.
In short, the WAW FUE system has made the FUE procedure more accessible, faster, and more productive. It makes the follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure minimally invasive and advantageous compared to the FUT procedure. In addition, the WAW system helps you obtain a higher amount of hair per graft. Therefore, a much lower transection rate and fewer missing grafts occur. Moreover, the WAW FUE system helps in reducing the scars while making the harvesting much faster.
The WAW FUE system makes use of a uniquely shaped extraction device. It mirrors the natural shape of the follicular unit closely. The device consists of punches that have an internal and external border. Also, the square-shaped outer border of the flat punch cuts the scalp with a sharp blade at low velocity. The inner edge of the graft is smooth enough to dissect the hair graft by moving forward without cutting or transecting it.
This innovative design allows Dr. Golio of the Hair Transplant Center – New Jersey to extract many high-quality grafts without making a big incision. At the same time, it also decreases the risk of damaging the healthy follicular units during the extraction. The WAW System minimizes cuts with its small blade size of about 0.8 to 0.1 millimeters in depth. As such, it helps speed up the healing process and limits the visible scars.
