A couple of things I would like to add.......

This technique can be done in a number of ways as there are many systems available.  Some dry, some wet, ARTAS, etc. Typically it is not the doctor that does the harvesting.  Make sure to ask who specifically will be doing the work, and their qualifications.  

I am always concerned with ARTAS because it uses a punch greater than a .9mm.  This will always leave scarring in the back that looks like honeycomb.  Typically .7mm or less is ideal, it leaves an undetectable mark,  

Again, do your research.  Ask for photos of the work.

Good points, but I will say that smaller than .7mm can be quite challenging especially with individuals with thick and coarse hair. I just feel there is a higher chance of transection, but ultimately it comes down to the skill of the tech or surgeon doing the extractions.
