In traditional hair transplant techniques, anesthetic injection into the scalp can sometimes be unsettling for those patients with a fear of needles. As Cosmedica Clinic, we offer the option of needle-free anesthesia as an option for our patients.
In the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method, needle-free anesthesia techniques can be used. With this technique, local anesthesia is applied with a special tool without a needle at the tip. Furthermore, the hair transplant surgery is performed using a special instrument known as an implanter pen. So, the patients who want their hair back but who have a fear of needles can easily get hair transplants.
Some people are deeply discomforted by needles. The fear of needles is a phobia that affects some people so much that they faint on having injections. We have seen this in many people, and it is nothing to be ashamed about.
The needle-free anesthesia we use at Cosmedica Clinic is helpful to some of our patients psychologically, but also has advantages from the clinical perspective. Amongst these benefits are ensuring that the risk of infection and pain for the patient is minimized.
