Some people who decide to undergo hair transplant may fear pain while researching the process. This is understandable since hair transplant is an aesthetic surgical operation. At this point, anaesthesia is inevitable for the operation. Anaesthesia is very important for comfort during the operation. What is meant by painless and needle-free hair transplant is the comfort that varies according to the way the anaesthesia and hair transplant procedure is applied.
Anaesthesia is a numbing procedure applied to suppress nerve cells so that patients do not feel pain and pain in medical operations. The type of anaesthesia to be applied during the operation varies according to the patient’s health status and the type of operation. It is an application that ensures that people who will undergo a medical operation are completely numb during the operation performed by injection under the skin in order to prevent pain and anxiety. In some operations, the patient is completely asleep, while in others regional anaesthesia is applied. Types of anaesthesia accordingly;
General Anaesthesia: In general anaesthesia, drugs to put the patient to sleep are transferred to the patient through vein or respiration. It is a sleep procedure applied to eliminate pain and pain. The patient under general anaesthesia becomes unconscious and goes into a deep sleep. It is a type of anaesthesia usually used in major medical operations. Since the patient is guided from time to time in hair transplantation, he/she must remain conscious. Therefore, it is not a highly preferred anaesthesia method in hair transplant.
Local Anaesthesia: In this anaesthesia application, only the area to be operated on is anaesthetised by targeting the areas with capillary openings with needle or needle-free anaesthesia that penetrates with pressure. The patient remains conscious. Local anaesthesia is generally preferred in hair transplant.
Sedation Among: The types of anaesthesia, sedation is the most ideal and advanced anaesthesia application that minimises the pain threshold, patients with panic and anxiety states, needle phobia. It is applied in two ways: oral medication and injection of anaesthetic drugs. There are two types of sedation, unconscious and conscious. In unconscious sedation, the patient is completely asleep and the connection with the outside world is cut. In conscious sedation, the patient falls into a light sleep. Consciousness remains open. He can hear everything that is going on around him. He/she can answer the questions directed to him/her. Unlike general anaesthesia, the patient can breathe on his/her own without the need for intubation support. It has the highest comfort level among anaesthesia types. Considering that it is applied even to babies, it can be called the safest and risk-free type of anaesthesia. Another reason why sedation is so comfortable is that its dose can be adjusted at the desired level according to the patient and its effect can be removed at any time.

PAINLESS AND NEEDLE-FREE HAIR TRANSPLANTATION TECHNIQUE
Local anaesthesia with needles used in hair transplant operations can make people with fear of needles and anxiety disorders uneasy and cause them to be reluctant to the treatment. However, today, with the innovations in medical science, needle-free anaesthesia applications are used in hair transplant procedures.
In this method, anaesthetic substances are sprayed under the skin with small pen-shaped microsurgical instruments designed without a needle and the patient is anaesthetised. Afterwards, hair follicles are collected from the donor area and placed in the area to be transplanted. This process takes between 4-8 hours.
