The Choi pens technique is not a technology in itself, but rather a combination of the two stages of opening channels and transplanting in one stage, which is a pen-like device with a hollow needle at its end connected to a tube and a piston, which played a prominent role in the medical arena as it enabled doctors to transplant hair without shaving, Long hair transplantation also, which is not provided by the FUE technique and the Sapphire technique, in addition to that, it makes patients happy in terms of the healing process, as the small incisions that were opened with them heal approximately two hours after the operation. Moreover, it has many advantages that it brought For the medical field, we will explain it in detail after that, but now we want to point out that it is necessary to ensure the expertise and professionalism of the center in which this operation will be performed; Because this process requires high professionalism.

How to transplant hair using choi pens (DHI)

The first stage

First of all, the doctor performs the necessary examinations to ensure the patient’s health to keep pace with the process, and is free of any chronic diseases, and then determines the front line based on the client’s choice, and in the meantime he also explains to the client all the steps of the process so that he knows what is being presented to him well.

The second phase

This stage is the stage of the operation, where the doctor determines the area from which the follicles will be extracted, which is the donor area, and then anesthetizes it using a painless anesthesia device that works by the method of pressure.

third level

After the donor area is anesthetized, the doctor determines the best follicles that contain three or more hairs, then he picks out the follicles using a “micrograph motor” device, a device that separates the hair follicle from the skin of the head and picks it out without leaving any trace, then the doctor places the follicle Which he took out inside the Choi pen and implanted in the area to be filled with hair.

Hair Growth Stage After Choi Lam Technique

The transplanted hair begins to grow gradually from the second month after transplantation until the fourth month, and at this stage a lot of changes and formal developments occur that make the patient happy, and then the density phase begins, which lasts until twelve to eighteen months after hair transplantation.

Features of Choi Pens Technology:

With this technique, the hair bulb is not placed outside the head for more than a minute, as we place the extracted bulb directly inside the Choi pen and plant it, and this step is done in less than ten seconds, and this makes the success rate reach a large degree.
This technique enables us to grow from 700 to 8000 grafts in one session.
And because the head size of Choi pens is approximately 1 millimeter, we can plant approximately 80 bulbs per square centimeter.
This technique does not leave any traces after the operation completely, because the tip of the pen makes ultra-small incisions, and they usually heal within two hours at most after the operation, which is accomplished by the healing process.
This technique reduces the trauma to the scalp tissues during the transfer of the follicles.
Reducing the risk of infection during and after the operation.
Not shaving and the possibility of long hair transplantation; The needle of the pen is very fine, which enables the doctor to place the follicles in the middle of the long hair.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is it safe?

Hair transplantation surgeries are relatively safe and rarely cause complications. DHI and FUE are less invasive than FUT because they don’t require a surgeon to cut a large strip of skin.

Is it effective?

  • Maximum viability.
  • The survival rate of grafts is the highest on the hair restoration market – it is above 90% verses the industry average of 50%.
  • The implanted hairs continue to grow throughout your lifetime; they are yours forever.
  • Complete results take 12 months, but growth becomes visible during the first two months.

Do the results look natural?

  • Full control of the depth and angle of every implant, achieving a look that is totally convincing.
  • Distribution and density of placement is designed to maximize a natural impression.

Is the technology the best available?

DHI is the most advanced transplant technique:

  • Direct hair implantation was pioneered by DHI and it is offered exclusively by DHI.
    We transfer hair from ‘donor’ areas, usually at the back of the head, to ‘recipient’ areas of hair loss.
  • Follicles are harvested and implanted using our patented methodology.
    FUE and FUT methods require incisions. They have been long since outdated by this, our less invasive and more effective technique.
  • Tirelessly, we continue to improve our technology and stay one step ahead of the competition; our new electric machine can extract more hair per session and its procedures heal faster.

Are the procedures regulated and quality assured?

  • To guarantee 100% safety we were first to establish Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) at all our clinics – we are still unique in this respect.
  • They are taught at The London Academy of Hair Restoration to our Master Surgeons and medical staff.
  • Our flagship clinic in Athens complies with protocols that we ourselves have established in association with the International Organization for Standardization.

Is it painful?

  • The procedure is minimally invasive; using tiny disposable instruments, with a diameter of 1mm or less.
  • The procedure is done under local anesthesia. Fully conscious, the patient can enjoy ‘downtime’, with music or television, or simply take a nap.

Is it disruptive?

  • In many cases, patients can return to work the next day.
  • A full head shave is often not necessary.
  • Post-procedure there is no requirement for long-term medication.
