Double Edged Trichophytic Closure

Double edged trichophytic closure is a new approach to donor wound closure.  Double edged or two sided trichotomy can help to minimize the complications of trichophytic closure based on the width of epithelium that is being removed and inability of some the hair follicles or oil glands to find their way out to the skin surface.

Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration is evolving rapidly and we are consistantly refining our approach on a regular basis to improve the quality of transplanted hair while at the same time minimize the possibility complications.

Double edged trichophytic closure helps us to minimize the width of the top skin layer (epithelium) that is being removed from each edge of the donor wound.  This approach allows hair to grow into the wound from both edges and thus minimize the contrast between scar (with no hair) and surrounding scalp (with 100% hair density).

By employing double edged trichophytic closure we constantly have results of less detectable donor scars and are able to minimize the risk of folliculitis or ingrown hairs in the donor area, which are the two common complications of trichotomy with the traditional methods.
