Trichophytic Closure, The evolution of conventional suturing

This procedure was developed in the plastic surgery field for the purpose of achieving aesthetic results, virtually without visible scars.*

A Gardel, the Trichophytic Closure Technique is used strictly when follicular units are harvested through the removal of a thin strip of skin from the sides and/or back of the head.

*NOTE: Not all people heal the same, and sometimes, due to genetic traits, undesirable scars may form, even when the surgical procedure is perfectly performed.

Each individual hair – along with its roots and follicles – is then processed under a microscope and transplanted to the receiving area using Gardel Transplant Techniques, where they will soon begin their new and permanent growth.
