It is intended to extend the life of hair follicles taken from the donor area with the Ice FUE hair transplantation method, which is successfully applied in hair transplantation.
The FUE technique, as its name implies, employs a special solution to keep the taken hair follicles from the donor area in low temperature. This is done so to preserve the quality of the roots and minimize decreases in their productivity between removal and transfer. The Ice FUE procedure, therefore, is recommended as a reliable method with an increased likelihood of achieving successful outcomes from a hair transplant.
Essentially, Ice FUE is similar to FUE. The point where the Ice FUE method diverges is that it keeps the hair follicles in a cold environment in a specially prepared solution in order to prevent the loss of quality and efficiency during the period from the removal of the hair follicles to their transfer.
The following are some of the advantages of Ice FUE hair transplantation:
At MetropolMed, we use a unique solution called custodiol when performing any hair transplantation. This product is expensive and not used in many clinics, however it is also employed within cardiovascular surgery and organ transplant procedures. The mini cooler developed for this purpose maintains the follicles at an appropriate temperature of +4°C during storage, guaranteeing that they are kept in optimal conditions before being successfully transferred.
