There are two main methods to remove the hair grafts –Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
In the FUT method, a strip of scalp is cut out from the donor area (usually the back of the head) and then dissected into individual grafts. This method is better when a larger bald or scanty hair growth area is to be covered.
FUE Hair Transplant involves cutting out individual follicular grafts from the donor area and transplanting them in areas of patchy growth. This method is better for smaller problem areas and has a faster recovery time.
At Kolors, we specialize in offering high-end hair transplantation procedures- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Direct Follicular Transplantation. We offer you an advanced myriad of quality solutions for hair transplantation.
AT KOLORS WE OFFER FUE WITH DFT (DIRECT FOLLICULAR TRANSPLANTATION)
What is an Implanter Pen?
An implanter pen is instrument physicians use to transfer follicular hair unit grafts onto the scalp – a follicular unit typically contains anywhere from one to four healthy hairs. This device was invented in the 1990s by Yung Chul Chou of the Kyungpook National University, who designed the device to reduce the amount of labor involved during hair transplants and the amount of direct physical contact to the recipient’s scalp. By minimizing the amount of direct physical contact, the scalp experiences less trauma during the procedure and can heal more quickly. An implanter pen also shortens the amount of time the follicular unit spends outside the body, increasing its odds of survivability.
How do Implanter Pens Work?
During a hair transplant, the surgeon first removes the follicular units from the donor zone from the back of the scalp with Follicular Unit Extraction. These follicular units are dissected and rearranged into grafts ready for reinsertion into the scalp. Once the grafts are prepared, they are carefully loaded into the needle of the implanter pen using jeweler forceps. Usually, an assistant will perform this loading process for multiple pens and hand them to the surgeon as needed throughout the procedure.
Next, the surgeon instantly creates a recipient site by pressing the pen’s plunger down and injecting the graft through the needle and into the scalp. During this step, the surgeon carefully angles the pen’s needle so the hair will grow naturally. If the needle faces a bad angle, the follicle will be mangled, and the resulting hairs will grow noticeably out of place. The main advantage of these devices is that they instantaneously create recipient sites using a fine needle, which minimalizes bleeding and the chance of infection. This also reduces the scarring, though scars will be present as with any skin puncture.
The immediate placement into the recipient sites allows for greater densities and less bleeding as the incision does not have time tooozeafter the incision. The hairs also have a higher chance of survival since vital structures, such as the dermal papillae, are not directly touched. The follicular units themselves fit snugly into the newly created recipient site, and the overall healing time is usually quite short since the donor extraction procedure is almost synonymously FUE.
Strict protocols are applied to all procedures and at all levels to guarantee 100% safety.
Grafts viability rate is above 90%, while the industry average is about 50%
Entire procedure is performed under local anesthesia, making the procedure completely painless
Only healthy hair follicles which are genetically designed to grow for a lifetime are chosen and implanted.
Full control of the depth, direction, and placement angle ensures 100% natural results.

Traditionally, the primary approach to placing grafts has been using jeweler’s forceps to grasp the FU grafts and then place them into the recipient sites. To do this proficiently can involve substantial practice. Holding the grafts too tightly can lead to damage to the grafts, and repeated attempts to place the grafts can also lead to damage. This may be a factor in some poor growth outcomes.
Increasingly, clinicians are adopting implanters to aid in placing grafts. There are multiple implanters on the market, such as the Lion (Hans Biomed, Korea) and OKT (Choi Instruments, Korea), but the basic design is similar.
It is felt that the use of this type of implanter allows for less trauma during graft insertion.
Here, we use the most advanced technology available in the hair transplant industry.
ELLIS INSTRUMENT FOR GRAFT EXTRACTION
Ellis instruments are the gold standard in the field of hair restoration. We get them from USA, helps in graft handling without trauma and mechanical damage
In the FUE technique, punch plays a vital role in the aesthetic outcome of the donor area. Smaller and sharper the punches, the better and faster the healing of the donor area. Mediquip titanium-tipped punches are the most advanced punches, available in size 0.7-1.1 mm for the aesthetically pleasing outcome of the donor area.
Implantation is the most important part of the procedure, on which density n natural outcome depends. For desired results, we use SAVA implanters and lion implanters
Appropriate magnification is crucial in the hair transplant procedure’s precise and minute aspects. Our loupes all doctors to achieve optimum magnification, ensuring minimal damage to grafts and existing hair. These enable our doctors to work efficiently, less fatigued, and longer hours for maximum output.
Focussed LED lights offer low temperature, cooling effect, and better environment for graft survival
It’s always advisable to review your choices and take a second opinion when planning a hair transplant. Compare the results and technology, and be well aware of what is right for you.
These days, many centers are offering hair transplant procedure facilities. But we believe that hair transplant procedures influence many aspects of a person’s life psychologically, aesthetically, and financially, so results should be better than your expectation. The cost of a hair transplant procedure varies because it depends upon various factors such as Technique used, Instruments quality, Surgeon skill, and experience. We are transparent with charges. We charge as per the technique used and a number of follicles implanted. So, call us to know more.
Lion Implanter (Spain): The Lion Implanter is a hair transplanter body and needle that considers the convenience of the user and the aesthetics of the patient. The device uses a clip, which is not found in previously used hair transplanters. This clip reduces the procedural time and makes needle replacement easier.
With our DFT technique, each hair follicle is gently and carefully extracted from the donor area and then implanted directly. This implies no holes or slits are made before the implantation process.
The process highlights–
- Healthy, natural looking hair
- No strips, scars or holes unlike previous techniques
- No injuries from the readjustment of the hair follicles to the blood supply
- Minimal medication is required during and post the operation
- No scalpels or stitches
- The procedure is executed 100% only by surgeon and trained assistant.
Hair Transplant Cost Factor
Hair Transplantation is a cosmetic procedure with no fixed cost. The cost of the procedure varies significantly from person to person, depending upon various factors, including:
- Hair Transplant Method you choose.
- Area of the region to be transplanted
- Type of instrumentation used
- No of follicles required for desired thickness.
- Size of the area that needs to be covered.
- Experience and expertise of surgeon.
- Geographic location of your provider.
