I am not sure what you are asking

Are you asking about the benefits of A-Cell with FUE, if not, please rephrase the questions. Some doctors claim, with no proof, the A-Cell applied to the donor area or recipient area will create less scarring.

Bio FUE vs. FUE

Bio FUE usually refers to the addition of PRP (platelet rich plasma) to the holding solution, the recipient site, and/or the donor area.  Our experience is this does little to the healing time or graft survival rate.  Properly performed FUE should translate to a 95% graft survival rate, and the healing time is more a function of the punch size.  For most patients, we use a 0.80 mm punch, which has a healing time of about one week.  Hope this helps!
