New Release of FUE Hair Restoration Technology from Dr U on Vimeo.


Worried about a growing bald spot or rapidly-receding hairline? Major hair loss is no joke – those suffering from baldness can certainly attest to that.


Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) hair surgery, a permanent and relatively non-invasive treatment for baldness, wasn’t always a viable option for individuals of color due to a lack of properly-advanced technology. This was especially true for those with thick, curly, Afro-textured hair; an oft-administered hair test disqualified those with type 4 hair entirely.


Dr. Sanusi Umar, world-renowned cosmetic hair surgeon, found the limitation imposed by FUE tools of the past unacceptable. His recently-released Dr.UGraft™ suite of FUE hair transplant tools has changed the field of hair restoration, allowing doctors to perform FUE surgery on patients of any and all genetic makeup.


The Dr.UPunch™ Difference


At the helm of this breakthrough is the Dr.UPunch™ FUE punch tip. Its uniquely-flared mouth and graduated, expanded inner chamber were engineered to cater to those with textured hair specifically. Where uniformly-round and straight FUE punches of the past were prone to transecting even moderately curly hair, the Dr.UPunch™ excels.


Male pattern baldness can often be a source of stress for the patient.

Its patented grip, pull, and score functionality gently excises each follicle. The delicate shaft is protected from the sharp cutting edge with a buffering inner wall. This configuration guides the punch around the C-curve path Afro-textured hair grows in, allowing each specimen to be scored safely and effectively, in less time than ever.


The Dr.UPunch™, when supplemented with the Dr.UGraft™ Revolution console and Nurture handpiece, also features a pedal-operated irrigation system. Each graft is hydrated at the point of extraction, protecting your yield from reduction via desiccation. This greatly improves regrowth rates across the board and is able to restore hair where other FUE hair transplant systems fail.


Female pattern baldness no longer has to be a life sentence.
