I may have heredity loss or loss as the result of medication. I just wanted to confirm that the Fox procedure does leave tiny scars at the donor area (where the hair is taken from)? Also, does the fox procedure also leave tiny scars where the hair is implanted. Please review and let me know of your thoughts.
Thanks in advance
1 Year After FUE – Parted

At the point where the follicular units are removed, there may be small punctate scars, but not at the recipient site, as the skin is trimmed once the grafts are outside the body. The skin disc that was removed in the FUE from the above photo were created by a 1mm punch, today the punch size measures 0.9mm. Trimming of the excised FUE grafts are critical to minimizing the transplantation of skin for the recipient area, which is clearly not the objective. When these FUE grafts are trimmed, the skin disc is reduced to 0.1-0.2mm in size, thereby minimizing scars at the recipient site.
