Dr.UGraft instrumentation is designed with specific features that are built to overcome the precise issues that have long prevented the safe extraction of body hair follicles until now. One of the key challenges is the sharp exit angle of the hair relative to the skin’s surface.
Following this exact angle with a generic cylindrical punch in a straight trajectory will sever the actual follicular structure, whose exact positioning below the skin’s surface can be difficult to ascertain. Dr.UGraft™ punches rely on inner and outer threading of a flared tip punch which grabs onto the tissue surrounding the hair follicle and pulls it upward as it rotates and cuts a circular score away from the graft.
The pulling effect of the threading on the surrounding tissue intuitively follows the course of any type of follicle, regardless of how the hair is angled.
This deliberate combination of the threading and the flared punch end helps avoid typical forms of mechanical damage that would otherwise harm the grafts.
Also, the water irrigation system serves to keep the grafts hydrated during the extraction process and gently expel them when they become impacted in the punch lumen to avoid the use of forceps which could contribute to trauma inflicted on the grafts.
