Painless anesthesia is a technique that is performed needle-free and painless , developed for the purpose of a comfortable and comfortable operation for people who have hair loss problems and want to have hair transplantation.
In the past years, anesthesia was provided with dental tip injectors. Although the needles used were in thin form, they caused an extra pain, reducing the comfort of the operation. This was a problem for people who were afraid of pain or had needle phobia.
The working logic of needle-free painless anesthesia devices is close to the gun basis. The anesthetic substance placed in the device is injected into the tissue by spraying with pressure. As a small dose of anesthetic is sprayed, it spreads over a large area and in this way the pain is relieved.
Contrary to what is known, pain does not completely disappear during anesthesia. The level of pain to be felt also varies according to the pain threshold of the person. Although the pain does not completely disappear, in general, there is no pain that will disturb the person.
How to do Painless Anesthesia
Hair transplant operations are performed under local anesthesia. A person’s consciousness is constantly open, except when she sleeps voluntarily.
There are two anesthesia phases throughout the entire operation and these phases are completed in a few minutes in total. The first of these is the nape area, which is the area where the hair follicles will be taken, called the donor area, while the other application area is the transplant area where the hair follicles will be transferred.
While in the past years, anesthetic drugs were administered via injectors and needles to provide anesthesia and the intraoperative comfort decreased, today the needles have been replaced by special devices that do not have a needle or similar apparatus at the tip, work with pressure and inject the anesthetic substance into the tissue in the form of spraying.
Needle-free, painless anesthesia devices allow people who have a hair loss problem and who have to live with this problem because they are afraid of the pain, and those who have needle phobia, the opportunity to have a hair transplant operation today.
Needle-free, painless anesthesia devices, which have taken their place in hair transplantation operations with the developing technology, work with pressure. It injects the anesthetic substance into the tissue by spraying it at high speed with the pressure inside. Since the amount of anesthetic drug given is small and it is applied by spraying, the pain that will occur because it penetrates a wide area according to the amount of drug applied is not at a level that will disturb the person.
The important point to know about painless anesthesia is not that nothing is felt during anesthesia, but that there is no pain that will disturb the person.
After the anesthesia phase, which is completed in a few minutes with painless anesthesia devices, the person does not feel any pain during the operation. Contrary to popular belief, there is no pain after the operation. During the total hair transplantation period (which is about 1 year), the period during which slight pain may be felt is a few minutes.
How long does Painless Anesthesia take?
At the beginning of the operation, the total duration of the anesthesia applied to the transfer area, where the hair follicles will be collected, applied to the nape area, called the donor area, and after the root collection process is completed, to the transfer area, does not exceed 10 minutes. Outside of this period, the person does not feel any pain.
How long is the effect of Painless Anesthesia?
The painless anesthesia procedure is done with two different forms of anesthetic drugs. The characteristics of the anesthetic drugs used can be summarized as follows;
- The first group of drugs that start to act immediately,
- The second group of drugs is the group of drugs that do not show immediate effect, but have a long duration of action.
In the first stage, a pre-anesthesia is applied with the first group of drugs. The goal here is for the drowsiness to start immediately. The sooner the drowsiness begins, the sooner the person will be relieved psychologically. At this stage, the person may feel slight pain, but this pain is not bothersome. 1. After the group drug injection is finished, the person is in a position that does not feel any pain.
Immediate action but short duration of action to provide complete drowsiness Immediately after the first group drug administration, it does not show an immediate effect, but when it starts to take effect, its effect will continue for a long time. 2. group drug injection starts. Two groups of drugs are injected using painless, needle-free anesthesia. While the 2. group drug is injected, the person does not feel anything because she already had a numbness before. The second group of anesthetic drugs is administered while the effect of the first group drug continues.
This procedure is applied twice in the operation, one in the donor area (nape area) and the other in the transfer area (plantation area). In total, the application time does not exceed 10 minutes, and during the application, it can be interrupted at the request of the person. 2. When the group drug administration is finished, a state of complete drowsiness is achieved. The person does not feel any pain.
In which patients can Painless Anesthesia be applied?
At the planning stage of the operation, it is evaluated whether the persons are suitable for the operation. At this stage, painless anesthesia can be applied to anyone who does not have a problem that prevents them from having a hair transplant operation. The application has no age limit.
Is Hair Transplantation a painful procedure?
In the past years, before the use of painless anesthesia devices, anesthesia was provided with the help of needles before the operation. Since this reduced the quality of life of the people, the operation was not considered very comfortable. But today, precise solutions have been produced for pain with the painless anesthesia devices that take charge at this stage. People do not need to worry about pain.
What is sedation?
Sedation is a treatment procedure applied to people who have needle phobia or who are hesitant due to high pain before painless anesthesia devices. Before the anesthesia application, the person was put into half-sleep state with the anesthetic substance to be given by intravenous route and local anesthesia was administered before the end of the half-drowsiness. After the local anesthesia procedure was completed, the person would be awakened and the operation would continue. However, in order for this procedure to be carried out, people should not eat or drink anything to start from the previous night and come to the operation on an empty stomach. Although the sedation application increased the comfort of the person by eliminating the pain felt, the operation was difficult after the person’s body energy was low. This problem has been completely eliminated with painless anesthesia applications.
Is it sedation? Painless Anesthesia?
Sedation is actively used in almost every field of health and surgery. People need energy when hair transplant operations are long-lasting operations. The first condition of sedation is not to eat or drink anything from the previous night. If the person knowingly or unknowingly ate or drank something from the night before the operation, sedation is very risky. Although a meal break is given as a standard during the operation, the person has to continue on an empty stomach until then. This affects the operating comfort considerably.
In the anesthesia phase with the help of painless anesthesia devices, the person does not need to be hungry, even a healthy breakfast is recommended on the morning of the operation. Since the application will be local, there is no problem with the rest of the body.
