Scientifically, the follicle is the root of hairs and it’s the cell that’s responsible for hair growth. There is a confusion regarding the concept of follicle at hair transplant centers. It’s about a group of hairs covered by a living tissue from skin. This collection is called a container. However, therefore, many people call what is extracted and transplanted again a follicle, we have to use a follicle concept as a reference for the container.
This method is characterized by that the follicle is extracted manually from the hair donor area and transplanted one followed by one in the bald area. There are no cuts in the skin or using sharp tools or surgery.
Some are wrong to say this method is like the manual hair pluck as the two methods are not the Same. Through the extracting method, a group of follicles are extracted with the living surrounding tissues. This tissue is what will get stick to the transplant area with the new surroundings and therefore, regrow the hair in the new area.
Follicle extracting from the scalp
But, manual hair pluck is eliminating the hair from its roots without any living tissues. Thus, there is no opportunity for the hair to regrow again in the new area.
We also use in Health & Beauty Turkey advanced equipment to extract hair which is cylindrical needles which are set on a rotating device that rotates the needles to remove the follicle from the skin. The rotational motion for the needles is required to not ruin the follicle or the scalp in the donor area. The needles diameters are ranging from 0.5 to 0.8 according to the nature of hair and the number of follicles needed to be extracted.
- Hair extracting individually from the donor area and then transplanted directly in the bald area does not leave any mentioned advantages (in case of the physician is experienced) in both of two donor areas.
- It doesn’t require any cutting tools or sewing for the surgery in the donor area. It doesn’t leave any complications to the patient getting him away from his or her normal life. It’s a fast healing process as the patient can get back to work the day after the operation directly.
