During the first examination, we conduct a general observation of the patient applying for hair transplant. After the preliminary examination, we analyze the hair considering the hair problems the individual has. A hair analysis done well, significantly improves the success rate of the transplantation. The areas where the patient has thinning and hair loss and where healthy hair follicles are present are identified. Sufficient number of the healthiest follicles are extracted to be used during the hair transplant process. In the normal method, the follicles are extracted with the help of a needle, while this new method allows the extraction of the necessary hair follicles without a needle. In order to do that, the donor area where the follicles will be extracted is determined. Then the hair is shaved and marked carefully. An expert anaesthetizes this area. The grafts are collected from the locally anaesthetized area by the expert. After there are sufficient number of grafts, these are carefully transplanted to the bald area one by one. One of the most important features of this method is that no needles are used in the transplant and the extraction.
