How Multi-Unit Hair Grafting Works

Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ provides the patient with the most natural appearance and the greatest density per procedure versus Micro and Follicular Unit grafting. The benefit of Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™ to the patient is that more hair can be transplanted per procedure, meaning fewer procedures are needed to reach a patient's hair restoration goal.

How It Works

PAI Medical Group developed and trademarked this extraordinary procedure, which uses a blend of surgical technologies, and an array of different-sized hair groupings (grafts) to best fit the individual patient's needs. This advanced technique achieves the desired density and natural appearance expected by people today in the fewest visits possible, limiting inconvenience and cost. The table below contrasts the three prevailing hair transplant techniques used around the world today and the robotic hair transplant system.
