Background and Aim: Hair transplantation is the main therapeutic method for androgenic alopecia. Improvement of the hair transplant techniques with more acceptable appearance of the transplanted hair has made this method more popular. Nowadays, for more acceptable appearance of transplanted hair, every follicle is transplanted separately or in small groups which is a time consuming procedure and exposes the follicles to environmental stressors. The new device that we introduce here can be time saving and decreases the exposure time to stressors. Case report: This device was named Micro-implant and we used it for hair transplantation in a 45 years old man with androgenic alopecia. After informed consent and adequate explanations, necessary laboratory tests were performed which their results were normal. Three 10×2 cm grafts were resected from occipital area. The grafts were placed into sterile physiologic buffer rapidly and then divided by a scalpel into small pieces, each containing 1-4 follicles. These graft units were transplanted into the frontal bald area by means of the Micro-implant. Conclusion: Use of this device will reduce transplantation time notably and maintain the viability of the transplanted follicles which ensure success of transplantation.
Keywords: Hair transplantation, Hair follicle, Micro-implant.
