When a strip is cut out , it is then cut into blocks, like the one shown
The techs then , hopefully under a stereoscope, start dissecting out the individual follicular units.
As stated, you can see the follicle your are going for, but not bulbs behind it, as the blade cuts through.
And cutting the bulbs, or transection, is game over.
You have just destroyed the follicle.
And planting such transected follicles is the FRAUD of the industry.
Makes the numbers look good and you can claim megasessions…but it is a con.
Complicit “patients” and some clever photoshop does the rest.
That is not to say some guys are lucky…
And FUE in some ways is even worse. It gives a false sense of security while a "plague of locust " punch away at your head, while some assistant stands there with a CLICKER, counting the moment an instrument touches the head, with no regard as to what actually is removed, be it intact follicle, or useless fragment.
No regulation, no dissent, and ISHRS buddies stick together.
