When it comes to hair transplant techniques, there are numerous options to choose from, and it will be determined by our specialists during the initial consultation as to which technique will best suit your individual requirements. While Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the preferred transplant method, other methods such as the Choi Implanter Pen for Direct Hair Implants have become of increasing interest for both patients and surgeons. At Longevita, we pride ourselves on offering some of the most innovative techniques performed by surgeons of the highest calibre. With many years’ experience performing these treatments on patients from across the globe with all hair types you can be certain that you are in the safest of hands when you choose the Direct Hair Implant with the Choi Implanter Pen technique from Longevita.
The Advantages Of The Choi Implanter Pen
The Choi Implanter Pen technique was first introduced by Choi in 1992, however these were generally left in the dark as a result of the increasing work that this required, when compared to traditional Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) techniques. However, with the increasing demand for FUE hair transplants for both men and women, the Choi Implanter Pen provides numerous advantages for surgeons and for patients.
Firstly, the needle implanters allow surgeons to delegate the work of the placement of the graft. This allows physicians to accurately place the grafts after the surgeon has carried out the harvesting, which minimises the time the grafts spend out of the body, producing a comfortable cycle of activity. In addition to this, implanters allow placement with a minimal risk of follicle damage, which is particularly important when being integrated as part of an FUE technique, due to the follicles being implanted individually.
Due to the reduced trauma provided by the implanter pen, patient healing times are often much faster. Other advantages of the Choi Implanter Pen include smaller incisions, precise density, accurate implantations, and in some cases, the grafts can be harvested and placed at the same time.
Difficulties Of The Choi Implanter Pen
While there are numerous advantages to this innovative technique, there are a number of difficulties to also take into consideration. The main difficulty is the damage caused by inserting the grafts in the implanter pen, which can leave to breaking and injury to the graft. Another issue, which is often an aftermath of the application into the implanter pen, is growth failures on parts of the scalp, due to follicles breaking or hooking.
Choi Implanter Pen Technique At Longevita
The ease of increasing hair density is improved with use of the Choi Implanter Pen, and as a result of this, many patients who suffer from hair loss or thinning hair are opting for this innovative technique. In addition to this, with this direct hair implant technique, patients may not have to completely shave off existing hair, as the Choi Pen can inject donor grafts between the existing hair follicles accurately, with ease. This also allows surgeons to see the natural angle of the hair growth, and helps to eliminate the risk of planning grafts too close to existing hair, which can offer unrivalled regrowth rate and natural results.
