Extraction of the grafts
Preparation before treatment
Before we begin the treatment process, we will take photos for the patient file. The donor area will then be isolated and shaved. The best results are obtained if the whole head is shaved, although for obvious, aesthetic reasons, this is not generally done on women (unless explicitly requested).
Removing the grafts
After the donor area is shaved, a superficial anaesthetic is applied. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the technician starts extracting the grafts. Clients can ask for a break whenever they need it. After the grafts are extracted, the clients are treated to lunch at Hair Science Institute.
Implanting the grafts in the receptor area
After the lunch break, new photos are taken and a disinfecting cream is applied to the donor area. The doctor once again discusses and confirms the desired receptor area with the client before marking the area and applying the anaesthetic.
Watching the process
Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the doctor starts making the little holes. We find it important to consult clients on these holes and give them the opportunity to watch the process in the mirror. After the holes are made, the entire scalp is washed. The grafts are implanted by either two technicians or a doctor and a technician. Two people work together to implant the grafts, unless time constraints or the receptor area itself do not allow for this.
