FUE - No Shave
FUE - No Shave
Dr. Marco Barusco, Founder and Medical Director of Tempus Hair Restoration, proudly offers patients his advanced No-Shave FUE method of hair transplantation. Only Tempus Hair Restoration can restore thinning hair and fill in bald spots without as much downtime after the procedure. Normal FUE procedures require you to have your donor hair shaved for the procedure, so everyone knows you had treatment unless you take off an extended period of time to let the shaved patches regrow. Dr. Barusco developed the innovative and groundbreaking No-Shave FUE procedure to eliminate this problem. It has become so popular that patients fly in from all over the world to take advantage of this innovative procedure.
The No-Shave method also allows Dr. Barusco to see, in real time, the effect of the harvesting being performed so he can avoid over harvesting in a particular area and creating an uneven, “thinned out” appearance. He can also select the strongest and best hairs to harvest.

Like the No-Shave method, traditional Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) individually extracts follicular units in groupings of one, two or three hairs from the donor’s hair-bearing region using small punches instead of a scalpel blade. Though effective, this procedure requires that your donor area be shaved in order to harvest each individual graft. For many patients, this can be a difficult, embarrassing process because of appearing in public with a half-shaved head. Some patients may even have to take time off in order to allow their hair to grow back in the donor area.
There are many important questions you should ask your potential surgeon during your FUE hair transplant consultation, but there’s one that is most important: Who will harvest the follicular units from my scalp?
Many physicians have recently added FUE to their practices but employ TECHNICIANS, NOT SURGEONS, to perform the hair extraction. At Tempus Hair Restoration, we feel that harvesting follicular units is the same as taking hundreds or thousands of skin biopsies, and Dr. Barusco is a leading voice in the fight to stop this practice of employing technicians to harvest donor hairs from patients.
In fact, Dr. Barusco recently proposed important changes to the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery’s (ABRHS) Bylaws that will help protect hair restoration patients:
These proposed changes were approved unanimously by the ABHRS Board of Directors. Only licensed professionals should be allowed to perform this procedure. Dr. Barusco is a board certified surgeon and hair transplant specialist, which gives him the extensive medical knowledge and experience to ensure you get safe, reliable care that yields the most natural results.
