WAW Instruments: Tools and Devices to Create Better Hair Transplants
Hair restoration has enjoyed great strides over the past years. One of which is Dr. Jean Devroye, who developed his state-of-the-art Hybrid Trumpet punch, which comprises a motorized pedal and punch to extract follicular grafts. Dr. Devroye began the development of a punch that could cut the epidermis at low speeds and yet still dissect the graft without transecting the follicles within it. The most advanced Hybrid Trumpet punch works for hair transplant doctors who take pride in providing the highest quality results possible to their patients.
The new version (commercial model) of the WAW FUE System now offers its wireless control of the three basic dials to obtain optimum results of FUE. The first dial adjusts the angle or arc of oscillation. In contrast, the second dial alters the speed of oscillation, and the third dial enhances the initial speed of the punch. With these features, you can modify the acceleration speed, oscillation mode, and angulation. This device also delivers beneficial scoring counting that you can reset anytime.
The Hybrid Trumpet punch offers the advantages of dull and sharp punches. With a 90-degree outer edge and a smooth funnel-shaped inner edge, the Hybrid Trumpet punch makes penetration into the skin more gentle and less traumatic. In that case, the Hybrid Trumpet punch works like a dissection tool rather than a cutting one.
With the threading movement, you can go deeper without damaging hair follicles, which is essential for regrowth. With the punch’s suction effect, the extraction speed increases.
Deep penetration combined with high rotation speed and wide oscillation results in torsion of the follicular unit because it’s tied to the subcutaneous vessel. It undergoes definitive traction downward and gets buried, possibly reducing the speed and depth. The ultimate goal of the invention is to produce FUE grafts similar to FUT grafts and get results similar to that obtained with the FUT. However, going in-depth of the benefits of this revolutionized innovation includes:
- To reduce transection and pairing rates
- To decrease all the injuries that follicular units undergo during the extraction
- To lessen the number of missing grafts and the intrinsic quality of the extraction
It’s rewarding for doctors to experience high-quality grafts and faster completion of the procedure. You now have grafts that are less transected, plumper, and richer in hairline design.
