How facial hair implants are carried out

The most common technique for facial hair implants involves removing small follicular units of up to four hairs at a time, which are then inserted into an incision of up to two millimetres in the donor areas.

The most common technique for facial hair implants involves removing small follicular units of up to four hairs at a time, which are then inserted into an incision of up to two millimetres in the donor areas.

The procedure is conducted under local anaesthesia.

The implanted hair will initially fall out but the cells and glands which support the hairs remain in place. In about three months, hair in the implanted area will begin to grow.

After three months, the patient can shave, trim and style the facial hair and it will grow back naturally.
