There are different methods that one can choose when thinking of a hair transplant. The Choi Implanter Pen is one of the techniques that can be used to perform a hair transplant. All that you need to know about this technique of hair transplant will be highlighted and afterwards weigh the better options.
How does the Choi Implanter Pen Work?
Just like all the other techniques, this method is meant to add hair to areas that previously had no hair. This is an instrument with a hollow needle at one of its end. The instrument takes the shape of a pen, hence its name Choi Implanter Pen. The process of hair transplant using this technique is as follows:
- Hair grafts are loaded into the hollow needle end by the technician at the operating room. Loading of hair grafts can be done by a technician and not necessarily the surgeon.
- The surgeon then takes the pen and uses it to implant the hair grafts into the scalp in the region with no air.
- The same process is repeated over and over for every single graft of hair being implanted.
It is important to note that this process must happen in an operating room with a surgeon and a technician. Just like any other surgery, this one to calls for the patient to be treated under anesthetics to avoid any pain.
Is it the best option?
Well, if you really need an effective hair transplant, then there is a better option that you have than this method. Despite being an expensive technique, the Choi Implanter Pen takes more time than the popular FUE method. Furthermore, there have been reports of needle dulling during the surgery.
From this, it is very clear that using the Choi Implanter Pen is not the best option that you have for your hair transplant. Without a doubt, FUE still remains to be the most popular and effective method of hair transplant.
