Incision Technique


Recommended Posts

In a recent meeting with a doctor I had explained to me that using an injection needle is used instead of the traditional tool for creating graft incisions when performing dense pack sessions.


The reasoning was to avoid damaging existing hairs. Can anyone confirm this is true or just marketing on the doctors part?

Yes needles are used. However, blades are also used in dense packing. And it was my understanding that the blades are able to produce more densely packed slits and thus allow for more densely packed graft implants. (Unless of course, this needle is newer technology that is smaller than the blades)


Jotronic has posted a wonderful video of this showing the comparison between needles and blades. The entire exercise was done on a melon.

take care...
