How to minimize the pain during hair transplant surgery? FUE and DHI are minimally invasive techniques. However, even the smallest incisions can cause pain. Hair transplants are therefore performed under local anesthesia. But this local anesthesia is injected using syringes with needles. You may feel a little pain when the needle is inserted into your skin. To reduce and eliminate the pain of injecting anesthetic with needles, we use a comfort system that pulses jets of anesthetic to the skin. This advanced technology allows the anesthesiologist to numb your scalp. So you won’t feel the other injections needed! This way your scalp will be totally numb and painless during the procedure.

Your hair transplant needle-free

Although the level of pain has been reduced, it cannot be eliminated entirely. For those with trypanophobia or the fear of needles, Dr Cinik Hair Transplant clinic offers needle-free anaesthesia.

This cutting-edge solution provides a needle-free alternative, allowing patients to undergo a hair transplant without the worry and stress that often come with traditional injection-based methods. The clinic strives to ensure that all patients receive a comfortable, stress-free experience.

How painful is a hair transplant ?

Hair transplant procedures, such as FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and DHI (Direct Hair Implant), are typically not very painful and can be compared to the discomfort felt during a dental check-up. Despite being minimally invasive, it is normal to experience some discomfort during the procedure due to the small incisions made in the scalp. However, there are methods to reduce pain associated with hair transplants.

The FUE method consists of three steps: extraction, channel opening, and implantation. During the extraction phase, manual or motorised punches are used to carefully remove grafts from the donor areas. In the channel opening stage, small holes are made in the scalp using Sapphire or metal blades, and in the implantation phase, the hair grafts are carefully inserted into these holes.

The DHI method reduces the number of stages, making the procedure less painful. The extraction phase is the same as in the FUE method, but in the implantation phase, grafts are placed into a special device called the Choi Pen and inserted directly into the skin layers, eliminating the need for a separate channel opening.

How do we reduce the pain and discomfort?

We use local anaesthesia

Hair transplant procedures are performed using local anaesthesia. The anaesthesia agent is injected into the scalp: first at the donor site and then at the recipient area before the start of the surgery. The injections are usually made by an anaesthetist using standard needles.

It is normal to experience some mild discomfort when the needle is inserted into the skin, and until the anaesthesia takes effect and numbs the scalp, you may feel the injections.

For patients who have a fear of needles, we offer a needle-free anaesthesia alternative

To minimise pain further and eliminate the discomfort associated with traditional numbing injections, a special device can be used to administer anaesthesia without the need for injections. Our clinic uses the Comfort-in system, which employs jet injection technology.

This advanced technology allows the anaesthetist to numb the scalp before any injections, ensuring that you do not feel any further discomfort and that your scalp is fully numb before the hair transplant begins.

How does needle-free hair transplant work ?

Anaesthetic medications are delivered into the tissues through a high-pressure spray from a device positioned on the scalp. The medication diffuses into the tissue, blocking the nerves transmitting pain.

Once the skin has been numbed, the medical team will inject the anaesthetic medication more deeply into the skin and massage the scalp to ensure the drug is evenly distributed.

Needle-Free Anaesthesia for DHI and FUE Techniques

The DHI and FUE techniques are both minimally invasive and associated with minimal pain levels.

However, both techniques can be performed using needle-free anaesthesia for an even more comfortable experience.

Benefits of Needle-Free Anaesthesia

With needle-free anaesthesia technology, the administration of anaesthetic material can be performed without causing any discomfort.

This means that even the initial injections are not felt on the skin.

Does Needle-Free Anaesthesia Eliminate the Use of Needles Completely?

No, it does not. The correct term for this technique is pre-needleless anaesthesia, meaning that the skin is numb to some degree before the anaesthetic injections are made, so that no pain is felt during the injection procedure.
