Over the years, the hair restoration services industry has been witnessing new trends and innovations, which have resulted in service being more lucrative and efficient. For instance, ARTAS robotic procedure is a new technology that is being developed with leading hair transplant physicians and researchers.

Among these, the follicular unit extraction segment garnered. 34.3% share of the market in 2018.

The ideal candidates for FUE hair restoration surgery is someone who has high hair density in the donor area (back and side of the head). However, some of the key FUE service providers are strategizing on executing FUE without shaving off one’s head.

Follicular unit excision refers to an actual surgery in which hundreds of incisions are made and hair follicles are physically removed from the donor area of the scalp and inserted into the balding area.

Spain has the second highest number of bald men population, followed by Germany and France.
