VCare’s AFT is an advanced revolutionary grafting technology to extract a single follicular unit from the donor area using a specialized motorized device and implant in the bald area using titanium-coated implanters for precise punch.
1. The use of disposable titanium tips, needles and a completely sterile environment ensures 100% safety.
2. The use of collagen pads and Growth factor treatment promotes faster healing in the donor site.
3. Minimally invasive procedure.
4. Extracted grafts are treated with Growth factors that maximize the viability of the follicles.
5. This precised puncture diameter of less than a millimeter ensures maximum density and a natural look.

|PROCEDURE||The strip of skin is cut with hair follicles using scalpels, blades and needles||Hair follicles are extracted individually with a slit maker and forceps||This technique includes implantation using a DHI implanter and manual extraction using titanium-tip punches||VCare’s AFT is an advanced grafting technology to remove a single follicular unit from the donor area using a specialized rotary device and implant in the bald area using titanium-coated implanters for precise punch|
|INVASIVENESS||Highly invasive||Moderately invasive||Minimally invasive||Minimally invasive|
|SCARRING||Linear scarring||Big visible dotted scars||Dotted scars||Dotted scars|
|HEALING/DOWNTIME||10 – 15 days||6 – 7 days||3 – 5 days||3 – 5 days. Faster healing is ensured with collagen pads on the donor area|
|CHANCE OF INFECTION||High||High||Less||Less|
|GRAFT HANDLING||5 – 6 persons||2 – 3 persons||2 persons||2 persons|
|DAMAGE TO THE FOLLICLES||High||Moderate||Less||Less|
|SURVIVAL OF FOLLICLES||Due to high manual instrumentation viability of follicles is lowered||The manual technique reduces the viability of follicles||Automated DHI implanters ensure a high survival rate of follicles||Graft viability is 90%, and Lifetime presence of follicles due to the treatment of grafts with growth factors during implantation|
|PRECISION OF IMPLANTATION||Low||Low||High||High. Complete control of depth, direction and the angle of placement ensures high precision of graft placement.|
|DENSITY OF IMPLANTATION||Less||Moderate due to increased diameter of punctures||High||High. Puncture diameter of less than a millimeter and use of advanced implanters ensures high density and very natural-looking result|
|REGROWTH TIME||18-20 months||15-18 months||15-18 months||13-15 months|
|POST GRAFT APPEARANCE||Grass shoot appearance||Low-density look||Maximum density||Maximum density and natural look|
|POST TRANSPLANT DONOR HEALING|
Single-use titanium coated disposable punches and needles for every session. Strict protocols are applied to all processes and at all levels to guarantee 100% safety.
Full control of the depth, the direction and the angle of placement ensures a 100% natural result.
For the extraction and the placement tiny disposable instruments are used with a diameter of 1mm or less.
Grafts viability rate is above 90%, while the industry’s average is about 50%.
The procedure from start to finish is performed by experienced surgeons.
Only healthy hair follicles which are genetically designed to grow for a lifetime are chosen and implanted.
