The adaptation of the material used to the human body during the process helps to maintain the quality of the graft without harming the skin form. In some methods, hair follicle grafts may not be attached due to damage or microorganisms in the channels.

Hair transplantation with a micro motor is performed in a circular incision when removing hair follicles from the donor area. This can be done manually or by using a micro motor. Using a micro motor shortens hair transplantation time.

It is performed without scars and without swelling. The speed of the micromotor must be adjusted correctly, otherwise, heat may damage the tissues. For such reasons, it is important that it has to be applied by expert hands.
