Apart from the skill and expertise of the doctor during graft excision, the punch is another factor for transection rate (TX) which is the rate of damaged hair follicles
The conventional punch is the ‘sharp’ type that is easy for making incisions but there’s a chance to cause the higher TX if the physician conducts angles of the incision incorrectly.
“But, at HAIRSMITH CLINIC, we use the Hybrid Trumpet punch from WAW FUE SYSTEM which is praised as one of the best punches in the world. The outer edge of the punch is designed to be sharp for easy penetration while the inner edge is kept dull to avoid damaging hair follicles.“
This small tool helps decrease the TX at HAIRSMITH CLINIC down to 1-3% only. So, our patients can be sure that every single hair follicle is safely removed with minimal damage during graft excisions.
