What is Needle-Free Hair Transplant?

Definition and Principles of Needle-Free Hair Transplant

Needle-free anesthesia or needleless anesthesia is a hair restoration procedure that does not involve using needles during the anesthesia part of the procedure. Instead, it utilizes air pressure to numb and prepare the area for extraction and implantation. Also known as a pneumatic or air-powered hair transplant, a needle-free hair transplant makes the procedure more accessible and more comfortable for those with needle phobia. Needle-free hair transplant, a minimally invasive, 70% less painless procedure than traditional techniques, is suitable for all hair types. Therefore, anyone with a fear of needles, and because of that, those having second thoughts about hair transplantation, can get a hair transplant operation without any hesitation.

Advantages of Needle-Free Hair Transplant over Traditional Hair Transplant Methods

Local anesthesia comes first before the hair graft implantation starts. The surgeon uses a specialized pneumatic injector during needleless anesthesia, which causes less trauma or pain than the traditional anesthesia technique. Needle-free anesthesia does not mean individuals will not feel pain, so it is not pain-free. The pain originated from the medicine itself (anesthesia liquid). However, without the needle strikes, a needle-free hair transplant significantly reduces the pain and discomfort during the procedure.

How Needle-Free Hair Transplant Works

To reduce pain and the discomfort commonly associated with traditional numbing injections, a specialized device is utilized during the needle-free anesthesia hair transplant to deliver anesthesia without requiring injections.

The needle-free technique, also known as needleless anesthesia or needleless injection, is an innovative approach to administering local anesthesia without using traditional needles. In a needle-free hair transplant, the anesthetic medications are applied to the scalp through jet injection, consisting of a nozzle or aperture generating a high-pressure stream of medication. This allows the anesthesia solution to penetrate the outer layers of the scalp and reach the underlying tissues, effectively numbing the area to be treated.

The Benefits of Needle-Free Hair Transplant

Needle-free anesthesia offers several advantages:

  • It minimizes the pain and discomfort associated with needle injections.
  • Many individuals have a fear or anxiety related to needles. Needle-free hair transplant helps ease this fear, making the procedure more accessible and less intimidating for patients anxious about traditional needle injections.
  • Needle-free anesthesia eliminates the risk of such injuries, ensuring a safer procedure for the patient.
  • The jet injection device is used in a needle-free technique, allows for precise anesthesia delivery to the targeted areas of the scalp. This helps ensure accurate numbing of the treatment site, minimizing the risk of inadequate anesthesia or unnecessary spread of anesthesia to surrounding areas.
  • It can reduce the time required for anesthesia administration compared to traditional needle injections.
  • It minimizes trauma to the scalp caused by needle punctures; provides a quicker recovery period.

Is Needle-Free Hair Transplant Suitable for Everyone?

The eligibility criteria for needle-free anesthesia can vary depending on factors such as the individual's hair and scalp characteristics and the extent of hair loss.

  • Patients with specific scalp conditions or characteristics, such as thick or tough skin, excessive scarring, or certain medical conditions affecting the scalp, may not be suitable candidates for this procedure.

Although needle-free hair transplant techniques provide benefits, it's crucial to be informed of any potential drawbacks and dangers attached to this method.

  • The availability and effectiveness of needle-free devices may vary. The quality and performance of the equipment used for jet injection can impact the overall success of the procedure. Ensuring that the surgeon and clinic have access to reliable, high-quality, needle-free devices is essential.
  • The proficiency and experience of the surgeon in performing needle-free hair transplants are crucial. A skilled surgeon will have the expertise to assess whether a patient is a suitable candidate for the needle-free technique and can appropriately handle any complications during the procedure.

Everything went wonderfully, from start to finish. Everything was as described. They stay in constant contact with you, and you never feel abandoned. Even in the clinic, you feel secure and safe. Everyone there is very nice, and the work is highly professional. The only negative aspect was the needle-free anesthesia, which hardly had any effect, probably because it wasn't given enough time to work. Even though it's supposed to work well, it's not worth it because you only get it in the back of your head and not in the front. And then there are injections that you can't avoid. They can be painful, depending on your sensitivity. But that only lasts for about five minutes, and then you don't feel anything. I recommend the sapphire method, which was fortunately suggested to me because I had already undergone a hair transplant before. You can read about the advantages of the sapphire method on Google; it's definitely worth it. MCAN is top-notch, and I highly recommend it. They don't forget about you after the procedure; they even ask later how you're doing, etc. Everything is top-notch!

I got my hair transplant done at Mcan health was bit nervous about whole process but all my questions were answered before surgery, I was chatting with agent illays & liana on what's app who gave me a good package I was chatting with other clinics too so overall I was happy with price offered to me. I had a vedio consultation with Dr.Sedef where Uejd explained everything she said. I paid deposit and came for my surgery. I was picked up from the airport by Mcan driver he brought me to Hotel Troya its was nice and clean nothing fancy but I had a comfortable stay, staff was friendly and Hotel was located in centre so all shops were on walking distance. Next day I was picked from Hotel after having breakfast drivers were very punctual and showed up on time. I was brought to Mcan private clinic it was around 20 min drive. I was welcomed by Uejd who explained again how everything will be performed and did all paper work. Just want to say your doctor will only draw your hair line and open channels as hair transplant is 3 steps surgery 1. Extraction of grafts performed by technician Furkan ( nice guy ) and another technician who joined him later. We were talking about music while Furkan was performing anesthesia I felt very little or no pain would advice to go for needle less pressure anesthesia. 2. Open channels by Dr. Sedef but she did came before and checked how Extraction of graft was done. She actually drew the hairline and opened channels where new hair will be transplanted. I received 3500 graft at front and 800 graft on crown area. Overall 4300 graft. 3. I had a little break in between 2 stages , was given a sandwich , chocolate bar and drink and after that the final stage of transplant was performed again by Furkan and 2nd technician. Whole surgery took around 7-8 hours. Just remember guys your doctor will NOT do whole surgery. I was given all necessary medication after surgery and was brought back to Hotel. All information required for after care was on what's app sent by Udej. Clinic was very clean and hygienic I am happy with overall experience just need to wait and see the results now. I will update my review after 3 months. In the meantime thanks to all Mcan team.

When I went to MCAN to receive a hair transplant, I was quite nervous at the start as it was a new experience but the staff made me feel so at ease, they were very friendly and made sure that I, as a patient, was comfortable and not feeling any pain during the procedure. Also the taxi drivers were very friendly and got me to the appointments on time. I would recommend them to anyone who is ever thinking of getting a hair transplant and the service was excellent

The extent of the transplant, the number of grafts to be transplanted, and the hair transplantation technique can affect the procedure's duration. Needle-free hair transplant procedures can take approximately 4-8 hours to be completed.

It is a fact that needle-free anesthesia minimizes the pain and discomfort associated with needle injections compared to traditional needle-based techniques. However, it is not a pain-free procedure. Depending on the pain tolerance, patients may still experience mild pain and discomfort due to anesthesia liquids used during the process.

While needle-free anesthesia procedures generally have a low risk of complications, it's important to be aware of potential risks. These may include inadequate anesthesia, discomfort, a slight chance of infection, minimal bleeding, potential graft damage due to mechanical forces, and temporary swelling or bruising. Therefore, choosing a trustable clinic with well-experienced surgeons and adhering to post-operative care instructions are critical to reducing these risks.
